Why isn't CBD Working? Is CBD Oil a Scam?

Posted by oran wellard on

You’ve heard all about what CBD oil is good for and you've finally decided to give CBD oil a go. So you go online and buy some quality CBD oil

Your delivery arrives and after some time, you're feeling a little unimpressed to say the least.

After all the hype and excitement, you’ve found that your CBD simply isn’t doing the trick.

Is CBD a scam you ask yourself?? — don’t worry, it could be a simple fix!

Read on and see if you’re making these mistakes.

Consistency and Patience.

Taking CBD isn’t like traditional medicine, for some people, CBD needs time to start taking effect. This can be from a few days to 2 weeks. See this as your CBD journey, not a 100m sprint.

The reason why you’re taking CBD can also decide how long it takes to work.

'People that take CBD for sleep tend to notice benefits sooner than people taking CBD for pain.'

Apart from being patient, consistency is just as important. It’s no good taking drops on Monday and then forgetting about it for a few days. For best results, stick to your CBD routine. You’ll thank yourself later.

Find Your CBD Dose

If CBD isn’t working and you haven’t switched up your routine, we suggest that you do so. For example: If you’re taking 25mg a day and CBD isn’t working or has stopped working, increase your dose gradually over the next few weeks until, hopefully, you find your sweet spot!

Remember though that taking too much CBD can overload your endocannabinoid system, so take it slow. If you started taking CBD on a high dose, restart at a lower dose and work your way up.

Not NuHemp CBD 

Cheesy, I know, but it’s true. For you to have the best chance of a positive CBD journey, you need quality CBD products and that is what we provide (at a great price too may I add).

Wherever you shop though, make sure you’re buying from a reputable company with lab reports and reviews.

Are You Using CBD Incorrectly?

Whether you are taking CBD oil for anxiety, sleep or anything else, make sure to put the drops under your tongue and hold for at least 30 seconds (the longer the better).

CBD is placed under the tongue as that is the best place for absorption into your bloodstream. It’s no good putting CBD on your tongue or just swallowing it, you’ll be wasting so much CBD.

CBD May Not Be For You.

We like to keep things honest here and unfortunately CBD doesn’t work for everyone and everything. CBD may not help your particular ailment or you may need so much CBD that it isn’t a viable option (money wise).

If you’re unsure of whether CBD can help you, send us a message and we’ll do our best to help.
