You've heard that CBD oil can help people to better manage their anxiety, serves as a natural pain reliever, and even that it can make it easier to get a better night's sleep.
You're curious about the effects of CBD oil -- and you've wondered if it might be able to help you.
As with any natural remedy, it's important to educate yourself about CBD oil before you try it out for yourself. When you're new to the world of CBD, you now have lots of questions.
Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of misinformation out there when it comes to CBD.
In this post, we want to clear them up.
From understanding how CBD works to determining how long the effects may last, read on to learn the basics of all things CBD oil.
Before we get into the specifics of the effects of CBD oil and how to find the right dosage, let's first make sure you understand what it is -- and what it isn't.
The most important thing to know is that there is a difference between CBD and THC.
Yes, both come from the cannabis plant.
But THC is the psychoactive component of the plant, the part responsible for creating the recreational "high" that some people love and others do not enjoy. CBD does not contain THC, and therefore offers all of the healing benefits of cannabis without the loss of control and paranoia that some people experience.
But how exactly does it work?
In brief, your body contains its own endocannabinoid system. This system regulates the way you respond to both physical pain and emotional distress. People who have chronic pain syndrome or even those who deal with mental health issues like depression and anxiety don't make enough of these natural endocannabinoids on their own.
CBD oil contains cannabinoids, which directly interact with and strengthen your endocannabinoid system.
It's this natural reaction that causes the positive effects of CBD oil.
So, what are some of the main reasons why people take CBD oil?
CBD oil has a wide range of potential benefits, from helping to clear the skin to helping to manage depression/anxiety.
Especially when applied topically, it can decrease the pain or arthritis, injury, and more.
Recent studies also suggest that CBD oil may be able to ease and it could even serve as a potential treatment for opioid addiction.
What do the effects of CBD feel like, exactly -- and how are those feelings different from those associated with a marijuana high?
Many users of CBD oil say that they simply feel relaxed and calm. Most report that the clearest effect is simply an absence of the symptoms they were trying to treat with CBD oil.
There are countless ways to take CBD.
You can try CBD oil-infused chocolates, take CBD in capsules that look like supplements, apply it as a balm, and take it in liquid tincture form from a dropper.
Others try vaping CBD or taking it in edible gummy form.
Many people want to better understand how to find the right dosage of CBD.
In most cases, you should expect to do a bit of experimentation to find the ideal amount for you. We suggest that you start by taking the recommended serving size on the CBD oil product itself.
You may find that you only need to take CBD oil once a day, or that it works best for you if you take it several times daily.
If you're taking a tincture form, we suggest trying out anywhere from 5mg-10mg.
You can always work your way up from there, and the right dosage will vary from person to person.
So, how long will you have to wait before the effects of CBD oil kick in?
Again, this depends on the way in which you're taking it.
If you need quick relief, we suggest that you try vaping CBD oil. This way, you'll feel the relief you need in a matter of minutes. You'll also get fast results if you place a few droplets from the tincture CBD underneath your tongue.
Edibles will take somewhat longer to kick in, but the effects are still relatively fast. Most people say they start to feel it working in 20 minutes to half an hour.
In general, most people say that CBD oil begins to work anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or more after they take their dose.
So, how long do the effects of CBD last?
Again, there's no "set" answer here.
If you're aiming for long-lasting relief, we suggest you try edibles and topicals. In general, the effects of CBD oil can last anywhere from two to six hours.
We hope that this post has educated you about not only the effects of CBD oil but what kinds of relief it can offer you.
Remember that you'll need to do a bit of experimentation to find both the right dosage and the type of CBD oil product that works the best for you.
The most important thing is to invest in high-quality products that give you only the purest CBD.
