As many new users are introduced to CBD and its numerous benefits, there will be some percentage – like with any similarly beneficial substance – who don’t immediately notice quite the same results as others. Does CBD simply not work for these individuals, or are there other factors potentially at play?
At Koodegras, we’re here to tell you the answer is very much the latter. There’s a reason we offer a wide range of CBD products, from pain management topicals to sublingual oils, softgel capsules and many others: Different people respond to cannabinoids in different ways, and some may receive benefits through varying intake formats or methods than others. Here are some tips to help figure out how your body responds to CBD and how it can benefit you.
Affects Everyone Differently
For starters, as we noted above, it’s important to note that CBD is not designed as a one-size-fits-all solution. It will inter, act differently with each person depending on their body chemistry, physiology, and other factors.
Furthermore, there is no “sliding scale” or any similar theme. While there are certainly varying dosages of CBD that can be taken depending on your needs, there’s no guarantee that more or less of it will change your results – in many cases, the method of intake is more important than the dose size. If your initial experiences with CBD don’t yield the results you were looking for, speak to our pros about investigating different products or dosages.
Reputable Sources and Brands
One unfortunate potential reason some may not see the desired results from CBD: The manufacturer or brand is not reputable. Sadly, there are a number of so-called CBD manufacturers on the market who are selling low-quality or totally illegitimate products, masking them as beneficial treatment solutions. A major example of this that consumers should be weary of is products that are marketed and look and feel as though they are CBD products, when they are in fact just hemp oil products. There are literally countless examples of products on the internet that say something to the effect of “Organic Hemp Extract (1000mg)” and the price will be $70 or so. By all intents and purposes, this product looks and feels as though it is a CBD tincture with 1000mg CBD, but if you check the certificate of analysis (COA), you will find it might have 50mg of CBD, the other 95% is just hemp seed oil–which, although very beneficial, is most certainly not worth $70 when you can buy a bottle 5x the size at Walmart for $15.
Federal regulations for CBD are still coming around, which is why this sort of thing is still possible. Working with a name brand like Koodegras, with a reputation and history of quality products since 2015, is a must.
While we noted earlier that dosage isn’t everything when it comes to CBD, there are certainly some cases where it plays a role. Certain bodies need a greater quantity of cannabinoids than others to see results, for instance, or others might do well with CBD combined with a small dose of melatonin, a product we offer in our softgel selection. This is another area where our pros will be happy to make recommendations based on your needs.
Give it Time
Finally, in some cases you simply need to give your CBD medication a bit more time to show results. Ingestible CBD products, for instance, can take up to a week of consistent use before they show visible results. Our team will advise on how long you should be giving certain products before you wonder about the lack of results you’re seeing.
