We are all aware that there are numerous ways to use CBD oil, ranging from vaping to dabbing to applying it topically to the skin. Each of these methods will have a different time frame regarding how long you can expect to see results.
How long it takes for CBD to take effect varies from person to person and depends on many factors such as your age, health, and the severity of your condition. Some people experience immediate effects after using CBD oil, while others may take up to two hours. There are no hard and fast rules.
The time it takes for CBD to take effect also depends largely on the number of endocannabinoid receptors you have. Those with higher endocannabinoid levels may need to increase their dosage to see effects.
CBD products can be used in several different ways, each with varying degrees of onset, duration and intensity. For example, edibles typically take longer to kick in, as do topicals applied directly to the skin. However, we generally see most users experience effects from inhaled CBD almost instantaneously.
CBD Oil Dosage suggestions
The recommended dosage of CBD hemp oil differs depending on the product you are using, concentration, and your physiology. In addition, different products have different serving sizes. Read the label to figure out how much CBD you are taking per dose. Some people prefer taking CBD at night while others prefer taking it during the day. Always check for any contraindications with other medications or supplements that you might be taking.
We recommend you start with smaller dosages and work your way up until the desired effect is reached. Many claims suggest taking anywhere between 1 and 15 milligrams of CBD oil for every 10 pounds of body weight. So, experiment with different serving sizes to see how CBD affects you.
Remember that product use should be consistent and repetitive until you've determined what amount works best for your body – generally, 2-3 times daily is often recommended.
These are general guidelines for determining the right amount of CBD to use:
Choose one product and stick with it
Sticking to one product can also help ensure you have a consistent amount of CBD. The more you switch around, the less likely you are to be getting the same amount of CBD per dose. It's easy to compound things by increasing your dosage if you don't notice results with your first product. Stick with one for a while, then try another.
Start with a low dose
Starting with a low dose is also an important precautionary measure if you've never used CBD before because it can affect your body's ability to absorb it. Everyone's endocannabinoid system is different, so the best amount of CBD for you can differ greatly from that of someone else. It's always better to start slowly and work your way up to a larger serving size from there.
If you're going to start taking CBD oil, try starting before bedtime
CBD oil works best for many people when taken before bedtime. It helps you relax and sleep faster and reduces stress. Many people use CBD oil because it improves sleep quality, giving you more energy in the morning when you wake. If you find that CBD oil makes you tired, it's probably best to avoid using the product during the day.
See how this feels and adjust upwards if possible
If you have too much CBD, do not exceed three servings to avoid feeling overly sedated. If your stomach is sensitive, try taking CBD with food to help minimize any side effects. After a couple of days, you can play around with the serving size again and see if one or two servings a day works better for you.
