Nothing is more frustrating than hearing great stories about a new product and getting incredibly excited to try it, only to end up feeling like it doesn’t work for you.
If you’re currently using CBD oil and feel like it’s not working for you, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we’ll go through some common reasons that you may not be experiencing the results you’re looking for. We’ll also offer some recommendations to find the right solution for you!
The Amount of CBD Oil
Every person is unique, so there’s no one size fits all amount of CBD that works for everyone. If you don’t feel like CBD oil is working for you, you may want to adjust the amount that you’re using to see if that makes a difference!
At Nature’s Ultra, our products are available in different strengths to offer a variety of CBD concentrations. Let’s use our Cinnamon CBD oil as an example. It’s available in strengths of 500 mg and 1000 mg. A strength of 500 mg contains 16.66 mg of CBD per serving, and a strength of 1000 mg contains 33.33 mg of CBD per serving. Some people will experience results at the lower strength, while others will experience them at the higher strength. We recommend starting at a lower strength and seeing how your body responds. You can then start using a higher strength if desired!
The Total CBD in Your Product
Of course, knowing how much CBD you’re actually using depends on your ability to trust the product’s labeling. Unfortunately, many products in the marketplace are inconsistent or even deceitful with their labeling. That’s why it’s so important to purchase your CBD oil from companies who are dedicated to both quality and transparency.
Transparency means the world to us at Nature’s Ultra, so we label our products clearly and accurately. And we know how important it is to be confident in what you’re using, so you don’t just have to take our word for it! You can click here to check out the lab results for your specific product. Just select your CBD product and find the batch number that matches the number on the bottom of the bottle, and you’ll be able to see what your CBD oil contains!
Differences in Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and CBD Isolate
The type of CBD that you use may also impact how it works for you. There are three basic kinds of CBD: full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Full spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant with all of the plant’s other components, including THC (the psychoactive component of the plant). Broad spectrum CBD is extracted from the plant with all of the other components except for THC. And CBD isolate is pure CBD extracted from the plant with no other components.
If you’re using full spectrum CBD or broad spectrum CBD, you may find that the additional components are the reason the products aren’t working for you. There’s also an increased chance of contamination. On the other hand, CBD isolate is the most pure form of CBD, but you don’t get the benefits of the essential oils that are included in full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD products.
To help you enjoy the pure, potent quality of CBD isolate and the benefits of essential oils, our products are crafted with our own special blend. We start with our high-quality CBD isolate, which is cultivated on our hemp farm where we use organic and sustainable farming practices. We then combine it with world-class essential oils from Young Living. This means you get to enjoy the benefits of both CBD and essential oils. We call this Smart Spectrum. And because we know that every single component of our Smart Spectrum CBD is of the highest possible quality, you can be confident using it in your daily routine!
Health Issues and Medication
Is CBD for everyone? Unfortunately, the answer is no. Individual health issues and medications can both impact how CBD works in the body. And while this review from the World Health Organization notes that “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile,” there are some people who should be cautious using it.
According to Dr. Ty Call, Nature’s Ultra’s Chief Science Officer, “CBD undergoes first pass metabolism and is extensively metabolized by the liver. Because of this we do not recommend using CBD products in people with liver problems. Like grapefruit juice, CBD is a CYP 450 enzyme inhibitor and thus can alter the metabolism of some medications. Please consult with your physician if you take any CYP 450 medications. In general it will make these medications metabolize slower and thus you may need to reduce your dosing.”
If you’re concerned that a current health condition or medication may be the reason that you’re not responding to CBD oil, don’t be afraid to reach out to your health professional. They’ll be able to assess the situation and help you make the right decision based on your health!
Give It Time
One of the most important things you can do when you start using CBD is to be patient. It can be easy to expect immediate results from your health products. But while CBD can be immensely beneficial in your life, it isn’t an instant miracle!
If you don’t feel like you’re experiencing results right away, don’t just assume CBD oil isn’t for you and give up. Give it some time! Be patient and stay consistent with your CBD usage so your body has time to adapt to it. You may find that it takes a couple of weeks or more before you start experiencing the results you’re looking for. Once you do, you’ll be glad you were patient!
