CBD products are new to the masses. Therefore, many don’t know how to tackle this new tool in the world of wellness. The subtleness of CBD is one of its strongest assets. However, it may lead some to believe they aren’t feeling the effects. Seeing as the goal of CBD is to create homeostasis, that’s a good thing! However, there may be many other reasons why you are not feeling a difference with your CBD use. Read up to see if any of these tricks can help you feel the optimal benefits of CBD that you long for.

How CBD Works

To get a clearer understanding as to why you might not be feeling the effects of CBD, it’s good to have solid foundational knowledge of CBD.

Our body is lined with cannabinoid receptors. These receptors gauge the environment that is brewing throughout different areas of your body. This includes your skin, your brain and your gut.

There are many ways to consume CBD. However, they all fall into the following categories:

Oral Supplementation  

Oral supplementation includes CBD edibles, CBD tinctures and CBD vape pens. The way oral CBD supplements work is through your salivary glands. When saliva comes into contact with CBD, the cannabinoids bind to the hydrogen in your spit.

When the cannabinoid-rich saliva pools underneath your tongue, it will permeate the thin webbed layer under your tongue. This is known as the frenulum. Here, CBD gets quick access to your bloodstream.

Using a CBD tincture or CBD vape pen is the quickest way to get CBD relief. With that being said, you will also burn through the cannabinoids faster.

As for edibles, the longer you leave them in your mouth, you will get a lot of the tincture-like effects. However, most of your CBD edible effects happen through the digestive tract.

Digestive

When you consume edibles, your body must break down the solid material surrounding the CBD. Whether it’s a brownie or a gummy bear, you won’t feel the effects until the CBD oxidizes from your stomach acid and into the bloodstream.

With that being said, you don’t digest a full edible immediately. While the effects may take a while to kick in, they will last longer than a tincture. In the same breath, your stomach acids may destroy some of the cannabinoids. This comes with the territory of eating. Your nutrients in a salad have the same struggle. Therefore, edibles may not pack as an intense of a punch as a CBD tincture.

Digestive CBD products aren’t just edibles. They also include CBD softgels. Instead of food surrounding the cannabinoids, it’s a capsule. Capsules are not as dense as an edible. Therefore, you will most likely feel the effects sooner with CBD softgels than eating food infused with CBD.

Skin

Remember how I said your body was lined with cannabinoid receptors? Our largest organ boasts a hoard of them. In fact, studies find that the skin has its own endocannabinoid system.

Whenever we feel discomfort, pain or itchiness in a joint, tendon or ligament, there is inflammation at the core. This inflammation lets off harsh vapors that set off the neural tissues connected to your cannabinoid receptors. Neural tissues send impulses to the endocannabinoid system that trigger the brain to create organic compounds.

These include:

  • Substance P (Pain perception)
  • Cortisol (Stress hormone, causes you to fixate on pain)
  • Sensations such as itchiness or heat at site of the problem

Our skin is very porous. After all, don’t we try masking them with makeup all the time? Well, we shouldn’t. This porous surface soaks up everything we put on it. This includes CBD.

Those who have an inflammatory skin response or joint pain may feel relief in a matter of moments. If you are not experiencing cosmetic issues or discomfort in your appendages, this may not be the most efficient way to get your CBD intake. While it takes a bit longer than a CBD tincture, the effects will come quicker than the digestive method.

Now that you have a solid foundation on the workings of CBD products, let’s figure out some of the reasons you may not be feeling the benefits of CBD.

Get Out of Your Head

One reason you might not be feeling anything is that you’re thinking too much about it. While many understand CBD doesn’t get you high, there’s still a cognitive correlation to the other Cannabis sativa plant that does. Therefore, many that are new to CBD expect to feel this great sense of euphoria. That’s not what CBD is meant to do.

In fact, if you are feeling a bit light-headed, then you probably consumed too much CBD. Don’t fret. There have been no medical instances of a CBD overdose that required hospitalization or ended in death.

Check Your CBD Serving

In uncharted waters like CBD, many say start slow. That’s a great idea. Just as you dye one strand of hair first before dyeing the whole head, you need to test the waters with cannabinoids.

With that said, our livers are pretty solid. Many CBD products have serving sizes of 5 mg. Therefore, you can most likely metabolize low servings of CBD with ease without feeling the effects.

After you see how you feel after 1 tincture dropper, or 1 piece of CBD chocolate, up the ante. Once you feel the effects you desire, you’ll know it. Trust your body. It knows more than you do!

Don’t Consume CBD on an Empty Stomach

Any time you take a supplement, you should have a little something in your stomach. Your stomach acids are extremely potent. If the first thing your CBD comes into contact with is stomach acid, the cannabinoids won’t stand much of a chance.

By having a slight bite to eat, you create a raft on your stomach acids. That way, the CBD in the edible/spit/softgel you consumed has something to land on.

As your acids break down the solid material, the CBD is free to oxidize. That means the aromatic compounds within the CBD dissipate into the contained atmosphere that is your body. From there, CBD will bind onto receptors throughout your system.

Consume CBD with Healthy Fat and Complex Carbs

Sure, you shouldn’t take CBD on an empty stomach. However, you shouldn’t take it on a stomach full of sugary, starchy or fried foods either. Ideally, you should consume CBD with healthy fat and complex carbs.

CBD to fat is like a moth to light. Fat soaks up CBD. This makes a nice little cocoon for the cannabinoids as the fat belly flops into your stomach acid reservoir. With that being said, you don’t want a big, fatty steak that will clog up your system. Doing so will actually counteract the benefits of CBD because you’ll be opening a Pandora’s box of a whole new mess that CBD will have to clean up.

Instead, consume fats that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These are found in lean proteins, seeds and legumes. What’s great is that you can find omega-rich foods that will work at any time of the day. Try consuming CBD with foods such as:

  • Salmon
  • Hemp Seeds/Hemp Oil
  • Flax Seeds (Ground)
  • Free-Range Chicken Eggs
  • Walnuts
  • Free-Range Chicken
  • Chia Seeds
  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

To ride the wave of effects even longer, be sure to eat some complex carbs. These are fibers that your body can’t digest. That means these foods will create a blockade in your system that allows the CBD more time to oxidize.

Now, blockade might sound scary. However, complex carbs are okay. Although your body can’t digest them, probiotic bacteria can. Consuming complex carbohydrates strengthens beneficial bacteria that helps you better absorb nutrients.

Some of the best complex carbs to have with CBD include:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Steel Cut Oatmeal
  • Quinoa
  • Whole Wheat Pasta
  • Lentils
  • Chickpeas
  • Brown Rice
  • Whole Wheat Bread
  • Barley

Complex carbs are preferred over starchy ones like white rice and potatoes because they are packed with micronutrients. When your beneficial bacteria break down these foods, they release a multitude of phytochemicals into your system.

These benefits will be further exasperated by CBD. Studies have proven that CBD has an entourage effect. When it’s in the presence of other phytochemicals, it gives their benefits a boost.

You Haven’t Tried Long Enough

Rome wasn’t built in a day! Nothing in this world is a cure-all. Almost every prescription says, “Take until the duration of prescription.” The same goes for supplements.

CBD has been getting so much mainstream attention that many are expecting mountains to be moved within one use. Not to mention, those who are new to the concept still have that whole marijuana stigma looming in the back of their heads that we discussed earlier. Consumers have a tendency to envision the instantaneous high that comes with the other cannabis plant. These preconceived notions are a natural storm of unreachable expectations.

Are You Using Low Quality?

Perfumes have cheap rip-offs in gas stations. “Healthy” granola bars are laden with sugars and artificial ingredients. When something strikes it big, there are bound to be imitations. CBD is the new belle of the ball in the world of wellness. While still in its infancy, subpar products are already popping up. Don’t fall for the scam.

CBD products are not currently regulated. You’re going to want to do your due diligence when selecting CBD products. Make sure you opt for a brand that is either “whole plant” or “full spectrum hemp oil.”

This means all the 100+ unique phytochemicals in hemp (minus the THC), are present in the product. That sets the whole entourage effect into motion. By using a higher-quality CBD product, you are getting a load of benefits that go beyond just CBD.

Lastly, you want to make sure the company you are using is organic. Pesticides are synthetic chemicals — heavy emphasis on chemicals. That means they have reactions with everything they come into contact with. When you’re adding synthetic ingredients into the mix, it does nothing but dilutes the overall potency.

That is why you need to opt for a brand like Joy Organics. Not only do we use hemp organically grown by local Colorado farmers, but we test the purity of each formula. From there, a third-party laboratory verifies our results each month. In an unregulated world, transparency is important. Otherwise, you might not feel the desired effects of your CBD products.

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
