CBD Not Working for You? Here are 5 Reasons Why

CBD Not Working for You? Here are 5 Reasons Why

I heard so many good things about CBD, but it doesn’t work for me!

I must be immune from CBD. I’ve tried it for ages and just don’t feel any differently.

I hate CBD, it’s a total scam!

Does that sound like you? Or anyone you know?

In recent years, CBD has been hailed as a miracle product. Whilst being completely natural, it has been known to help ease chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and hormonal issues.

So, we know how frustrating it can be to try something that is super hyped up and have it not work for you. You’re left thinking if your body isn’t responding right or if the whole CBD industry is a scam… But we’re here to assure you that these are just not the case.

Definitely, these fears are totally understandable when it comes to CBD. The world of CBD is growing rapidly but is still fairly new. As a result, it can be difficult to find the answers to the issues you’re experiencing.

Well, no fear! In this guide, we’ll be taking you through the five most common reasons as to why your CBD may not be working for you. Read on!

1. You’re not nailing your dosage.

For a CBD newbie, finding out the correct dose for your body can be a challenge. However, there are some guidelines to help you.

It’s best to start low and work your way up. A good starting point is 2.5mg per KG of body weight. So, for a 75KG person, a dosage of 187MG a day is a good place to start. After a week or so, you can increase your dosage to 5mg/KG of body weight- if you feel you’re needing a little extra.

It’s always easier to start off with too little and work your way up. If you increase your dosage in small increments, then you can track the perfect dosage for yourself. One thing to always remember when taking CBD is that it is highly personal. We all have different needs and are taking CBD for different things. Find out what works for you and take it from there- but the key is to be patient! Just because you don’t feel differently in the first few days, doesn’t mean CBD won’t work for you.

2. Um, where did you buy your CBD from again?

Buying CBD from a reputable source is extremely important. You need to know that the CBD you’re using is premium quality.

CBD is still a pretty ‘new’ supplement and has not yet been regulated by the FDA. Unfortunately, this means that some sellers do not have to meet certain guidelines when producing CBD products. In addition, the lack of regulation makes it easier for sellers to make unsubstantiated claims about their products.

If you have brought an item from a dubious site or seller, then you may well have a lower quality CBD. This could definitely be a reason as to why you feel CBD isn’t working for you.

When buying any CBD products, it is really important to do your research on the seller/ site. Ideally, you need to be buying your products from a company that conduct third-party lab tests, to ensure the quality of the CBD, test the CBD’s concentration and check there are no nasties in the product.

The more information you can get from a company that sells CBD, the better.

3. Check your delivery system

Another important thing to check out, if you’re feeling disappointed by the results of your CBD, is by checking your selected delivery system.

CBD can come in many different forms for the consumer to take, and the concentration of the CBD can widely differ between different methods.

For example, oil tinctures are one of the most popular delivery methods for CBD on the market. Tinctures are liquid CBD solutions- you take them orally by squeezing the dropper into your mouth and holding the oil under your tongue before swallowing. This sublingual delivery method is one of the fastest ways for your body to absorb CBD.

However, using CBD oils means you must be dosing yourself. This can be problematic for beginners who aren’t sure exactly what dosage they’re meant to be taking. As a result, you may not be taking enough CBD and this may be a reason as to why you’re not seeing any positive effects.

CBD oils come in varying concentrations, but 500mg is a great place to start. Begin by using 8mL per day (this works out to be around half of the dropper!). From there, you can work your way up and find what works for you.

CBD gummies are a very popular delivery method for CBD. They are super easy to take and leave no mess or self-dosing.

However, CBD gummies are often weaker in concentration than tinctures and have to go through your entire digestive system before being absorbed into your bloodstream. This means that the amount of CBD that is actually absorbed into your body may be significantly lower than other delivery methods and may be a reason as to why you’re not getting the results you are looking for.

CBD patches may be a better option if you want to avoid taking you CBD orally. CBD patches bypass the stomach completely, which means the CBD is directly absorbed into the blood stream. They are also quick and easy to use and are often small and discreet on the body.

In addition, CBD suppositories and topical CBD creams may be great for you if you’re looking for more localized relief from your CBD.

It really is completely personal, but it is definitely worth looking into the different delivery methods and maybe changing it up if you’re current one just isn’t working for you.

4. Are you using a full spectrum CBD?

Another reason as to why your CBD may not be working is because it isn’t a full-spectrum CBD product.

We know, we know… there appears to be about a zillion things you need to remember when it comes to CBD. Concentration, dosages, delivery types… but we promise it all makes total sense.

You may well have seen ‘CBD Isolate’ on a product label and ‘full-spectrum CBD’ on another- they may look the same but are actually very different.

A CBD isolate quite literally ‘isolates’ the CBD molecules from all other naturally occurring chemicals. This means that CBD isolate is the ‘purest form’ of CBD that contains nothing else.

So, CBD isolates sound like the best option then, right?

Well… not quite.

In comparison to CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD contains all the naturally occurring chemicals found in the whole hemp plant. These include other cannabinoids, terpenes and also lots of essential oils.

On the whole, full-spectrum CBD has been found to be more effective than CBD isolates. So, if you’re feeling like your CBD isn’t working, it may be worth checking exactly what kind of CBD it is. If it’s an isolate, then maybe you could switch to a full-spectrum product and see the difference.

5. Manage your expectations.

The last reason may sound a little obvious, but it really is important to remember.

Whilst CBD has helped millions of people with a myriad of problems from chronic pain to insomnia, it will work differently for everyone. CBD is also not a medicine and should not be taken in place of products recommended by healthcare professionals.

Whilst it is truly a fantastic natural aide, CBD is still just a supplement. It will work best alongside other healthy changes in your life, such as a good diet and lots of exercise.

Therefore, it is really important to manage your expectations when you’re first trying out CBD. Just because CBD may not be working exactly how you’d like it to, it doesn’t mean it isn’t working!

Have patience, try out different methods and concentrations and figure out what works best for you. Good luck!
