Four MOST common mistakes when using CBD
April 11, 2023
Have you been using CBD to feel better but you feel like you’re not seeing the results that you’re looking for? When you learn how to best use CBD, the health benefits can be life changing. Here are the top 4 reasons why CBD may not be working for you and solutions on how to fix them:
Not finding your optimal amount
CBD affects everyone differently. Finding your optimal amount is critical to achieve maximum benefit. I recommend people start off with about 5 mg for two days and if not satisfied with the results, increase by 5 mg every other day until they experience the desired results.
Not trying CBD for long enough
While a lot of people get very fast results with CBD, for others it’s more of a cumulative effect and they need to give it four weeks before they know if CBD is going to work for them.
Not allowing the drops to properly absorb
Drops should be placed under the tongue or between the inner cheek and gums and held for one to two minutes before swallowing. Brushing one’s teeth first can increase blood flow in the mouth and speed the onset. Taking drops (or capsules) after eating food, especially healthy fats, will improve absorption and result in a stronger effect.
Some people can just use CBD as needed. Others do better with daily use due to the anti-inflammatory and cumulative effects. Keep track of your response to your CBD especially in the beginning to help you recognize if the drops or capsules are working by helping you track your results.
