Ummm…. Did you say CBD did NOT work? Well guess what?! Maybe it didn’t work for you. We believe you! Our passion for health and wellness have helped so many but in all honesty some people just do not find relief. Let’s explore a few reasons why you might have not seen success while using CBD.
CBD is an absolutely amazing oil but it does not perform miracles. Yes… Legal Hippie just said that CBD is not a miracle worker! There are many factors that could play into rather or not you are seeing improvement while using CBD. First things first, check your brand! CBD is not regulated. This means that a product could say that they contain CBD but when lab tested they actually do not! Shocking I know but this happens time and time again. Until CBD becomes regulated you need to be able to see all third-party testing for your oil. Any reputable company will always have lab reports. Legal Hippie of course has reports! While you are at it, check those ingredients. To many ingredients, additives and even artificial flavoring can be found in CBD’s. A bit counter productive if you ask me!
Next on the list… Check your dose! Are you taking enough? A good and easy guideline you could follow is
- 2.5mg a day to increase appetite in cancer patients.
- 2.5 – 20mg daily to alleviate chronic pain.
- Up to 400mg a day for epilepsy.
Every single individual will need a different amount. It just isn’t as easy as saying between a certain weight take this amount. This is a time that requires you to pay attention to your body and increase until you notice results.
Another reason people are not seeing results is they are impatient. CBD takes times. You HAVE to take regularly and consistently. Some see results after 3 to 4 days while other might not find relief for a couple of weeks out. CBD is not here to numb away your fears, worries, and pains. It is fuel for your body and heals you from the inside.
Another common reason for people to not see results is GENETICS! Yes, it even deals with genetics. What causes CBD to work is how it works within and with your own body. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and some of us are born with more endocannabinoids than others. If you are lacking endocannabinoids you will and are more capable of seeing an improvement due to your body getting exactly what it is lacking. Studies are even showing that some people suffering from fibromyalgia could be suffering due to a lack of endocannabinoids. Back to those lucky individuals that have an abundance of cannabinoids, there are around 20% of Americans that have a genetic mutation that increases the natural endocannabinoid level in the body. If you are one of the lucky ones to have this, you’ll feel less anxious than a normal person but on the flip side since you have extra cannabinoids already, CBD may prove ineffective.
Biology also plays a role. If you are a female you are actually more sensitive to thc and even our favorite here at Legal Hippie CBD! Men on the other hand tend to need higher doses of CBD due to their biology including the size of a man. They are typically larger than women and will need bit more!
There are still so many factors that determine rather or not you will see relief while using CBD. Your fitness level or physical health, psychological health, your tolerance, and the strains used along with the entourage effect.
