I Tried CBD And It Doesn’t Work…3 Reasons Why That Might Be Happening
Does CBD Oil works? Generally, when you buy a product touted to have crazy great benefits for your health, you expect it to work. Maybe not right away, and maybe not in a day or two, but eventually, you should see benefits…right? Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
In this context, CBD oil is a perfect example. Customers will often purchase varying strengths, ranging from low to high of CBD oil but do not feel its healing effect. This is often a frustrating feeling, after all, no one wants to feel like they have wasted money on a product that does not do what it has promised.
However, if you have experienced this issue before, do not give up. There may be several explanations as to why the CBD oil you purchased is not acting the way it should be, and it is better to identify and rectify the issue rather than giving up altogether.
Here are a few reasons why your CBD oil may not be working, and what you can do about it:
1) Incorrect dosage
Many customers buy CBD oil but do not configure the dosage correctly. An incorrect dosage will mar the experience and is likely the primary reason why it is not working for you. Try starting out with a low dosage, as suggested by the manufacturer. From then on, double or triple up every 2 hours until you have reached your comfort zone.
Research different dosages to understand the effects, and what you are looking for. Rather than going for a high dose straight away, and not feeling the results, try to go slow and build your way up. Sometimes, the process requires patience, but it is better than doing incorrect dosages and not feeling the full effects like you should be.
2) Ask for third-party lab results
Unfortunately, there are many companies currently selling products that are not as advertised. While the FDA is diligently investigating and issuing warnings to these companies (or even shutting them down altogether), this is still an issue. These companies may claim the bottle contains 1000 MG of CBD, but it may actually contain only 200 MG of CBD or even none in some cases!
To avoid this, do thorough research. It is extremely important to ask for third-party lab results or search for companies that proactively post their third-party lab results for each product in their product description. We currently follow that process, as most companies are selling non-proprietary oils. However, with us, the difference is that you receive true value for what you paid for. Most companies are happy to overcharge and swindle their customers for the same product based on their brand.
3) Focus on the product itself
You might have been told never to judge a book by its cover when you were younger, but that advice does not always hold up in this aspect. The way a product is designed, labeled and packaged when released into the market speaks volumes about the company itself and its values. If a product looks shoddy and low quality on the outside, how can you trust that the product itself will be high quality?
If the design and branding do not look substantial enough to catch your eye on a Walgreens shelf, it is best advised to walk away. If a company refuses to invest in its aesthetic, packaging and the product itself looks cheap, it is better to avoid it altogether rather than taking a risk.
Our general rule of thumb? No box, no seal and/or a cheap looking box is instant grounds for walking away from a product.
These are just a few reasons why CBD oil may not be working for you. But ultimately, with some patience and research, there are definitely ways to get the full benefits of CBD oil without feeling like you have bought a product that does not work.
