CBD has exploded in popularity and learning about it can be overwhelming. I’ve spent a lot of time researching and using CBD and hope to answer some of the most common questions first time users have. What are cannabinoids? What should I expect? How much CBD should I take?
Here are some helpful suggestions for understanding CBD better
Over the course of the last ten years, much research has revealed the valuable properties of CBD. Different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant give extra advantages, so an entire plant (full-spectrum) hemp concentrate will optimize effectiveness.
Not all CBD is made equal. You will discover genuine varieties in quality when you search for it. We suggest avoiding CBD brands that make medical claims as CBD as a medicinal solution hasn’t been approved by the FDA. Avoid companies that offer a free bottle. Make sure the brand you research has transparent 3rd party lab test results like Endoca.
Start small, buy low CBD content (it’s cheaper and could be effective). Regardless where you buy your CBD, starting with a smaller dosage can yield desired results. We suggest starting with only a couple of drops. See what it feels like, let your body responds well to low dosages no need to take what the bottle tells you. If you don’t feel results with low dosages, you can gradually increase. Everyone is different!
CBD has subtle ways of working. Instead of expecting quick, intense results, we suggest moving toward CBD with the more of an outlook that results take time. Research suggests taking CBD daily for up to two months before realizing its full potential benefits. The length of time it takes to start feeling CBD benefits also depends on what you’re using it for.
As time goes on you’ll start feeling CBD effects more clearly. The endocannabinoid framework is throughout the entire human body. As your body gets comfortable with CBD, it’s ability to use it adapts. Pay close attention to the changes in feeling your body goes through over time. Most CBD users tell you they feel an overall calmness.
CBD is not magic and it’s not supposed to cure diseases. You’re still going to want to maintain a healthy lifestyle of exercising and eating clean to optimize your overall well being. Making cognizant, positive choices about how you treat your body is of most extreme significance. CBD should indeed improve overall well being but your everyday lifestyle decisions are what matter most.
You may want to try CBD at different times of the day to see if it has different effects. For example if you take CBD oil in the morning that’s infused with MCT you’ll notice increases in energy. If you take a high concentration of CBD at night that has melatonin you can expect a great nights sleep. My personal preference is to take 15mg of CBD in the morning at 15mg after work. So far my sleep patterns have improved but still not perfect. The biggest difference is my anxiety has almost completely subsided. In fact, if I feel anxious at all I’ll take a dropper and feel better within 15 minutes.
