CBD Oil Not Working? 4 Potential Reasons Why

Posted by Christopher 12/05/2019 0 Comment(s)

Many people expect immediate effects when they first start using CBD oil. But that’s more the exception than the rule. The shortage of instant effects can lead some to quickly give up and judge the CBD oil not working and give up.

However, a better approach is to have realistic expectations while starting out. For many, CBD oil results are not achieved for several weeks. So continuance is key. And so is a knowledge of the different variables at play that can determine both short-term and long-term effectiveness for you.

The purpose of this article is to present 4 potential reasons why CBD isn’t working for you or may have stopped working, and advise what you can do to increase your chances of obtaining your goal.

1. Choose a brand and product wisely.

The first decision that you had to make after deciding to try to achieve CBD oil results, was where you would buy it from. If you choose our brand uk-cbdoils  You also got a brand that has been well-reviewed by others and that makes third-party lab reports accessible to its consumers.

Importantly, buying from a company that has a strong track record is a good first step since there are poor quality products on the market. But it doesn’t ensure prompt successful CBD oil results. For instance, each brand and product has its own unique cannabinoid and terpene profile. So a product that works great for one person may not work at all for another person even if they are treating a similar condition.

Many people tell us that they had to try several brands before finding UK CBD Oils which achieved positive CBD oil results. So be sure to always buy from a legitimate source but know that it may take some experimenting to find “the one” that works for you.

Also, be sure you know whether the product you’re using is full spectrum, CBD isolate (0% THC) or a hybrid of those. If you bought an isolate and haven’t gotten any results, you may need to try a full spectrum product. T

2. Find your own personal optimal dose.

Taking too much CBD or too little CBD is the #1 cause that prevents effectiveness for beginners. Unlike aspirin where a standard dose of 2 tablets will be effective for the majority of people, the “right” dose of CBD is deeply individualized. Type and severity of body condition, weight and body chemistry are simply a few of the variables that make the “right” dose different for each person.

Your goal is to find the optimal dose for you specifically. Again, you’ll need to do some experimentation to figure out what’s best for you. 

Dosage is something that needs to be evaluated on a continuous basis. So even once you find your “sweet spot”, you may have to experiment with higher or lower amounts if you experience unfavourable side effects or a decrease in effectiveness over time. This is especially true if you switch products or use multiple products simultaneously since different products have different potency levels.

3. Genetics may be to blame.

Approximately 15-20% of people are genetically disposed to their body producing higher levels of natural endocannabinoids. This is generally a good thing for the overall well-being of those people. But the higher level of natural endocannabinoids can mean that they’ll get less benefit from taking CBD oil as a supplement.

5. Building tolerance.

After you’ve been taking CBD for a while, it’s natural to expect that tolerance will build up over time. You may find that you have to take a higher dose to achieve the same results you got from lower doses previously. But at some point, the effectiveness may plateau or higher doses become cost prohibitive.

At that point, you may want to consider taking a “break” from CBD to allow your endocannabinoid receptors to reset. After a couple of weeks, you can resume taking CBD and hopefully, you’ll achieve your desired results again at a lower dosage than what you had built up to.
