While the vast majority of customers tell me amazing stories of their CBD experience, I also get messages like this…
“I keep reading about all these great things CBD can do… But it does nothing for me! HELP!”
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. CBD’s effects can be subtle and can depend on an array of factors.
Before you write off the whole industry and rain on the parade of your CBD-loving peers, especially ME :), let’s consider a few reasons why CBD might not be working for you.
1. You’re not buying CBD from a reputable store
I’ve covered this topic a few times but it’s always good to remind ourselves. The CBD market is largely unregulated, so anybody can sell ‘CBD’ that actually contains little to no CBD.
If you don’t believe me, search for CBD on eBay and Amazon. These sites prohibit the sale of ANY cannabis-derived product, yet your search will yield thousands of results – all of which contain zero active CBD.
If you’re not using CBD from a reputable business, consider switching to Green Compass. All of our products have had their contents verified by 3rd-parties so you can be sure you’re getting exactly what it says on the label and it’s of the highest quality. USDA Organic Certified Hemp Flower!
2. You’re not giving it enough time
Although some feel some benefits immediately after taking CBD, most people don’t feel any significant changes for several weeks or even months. Remember, CBD isn’t THC. You don’t feel high after a few minutes.
Experts believe that CBD has to accumulate in your body before it starts to ‘work’, so give it at least a couple of weeks before you decide whether it’s for you or not.
3. You’re not taking enough
With CBD being unregulated, there are no official dosage recommendations. A quick Google will give you conflicting information about how much CBD to take to feel the desired benefits. Your ideal dosage depends on, among others, your bodyweight, your metabolism and the effects you want to feel.
I always recommend starting small and building up gradually. Also, I love when customers keep a diary of their experience too.
