CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s been found to have many medicinal properties and is used as an anti-inflammatory and an effective painkiller. In this article, we discuss 4 ways you can make your CBD more effective.
Absorb Your CBD Better
There are several methods of administering CBD, including vaping with a vape pen or dabbing. Unfortunately, these kinds of delivery means can be harsh and lead to some people not being able to handle the hit (especially those who have never vaped before). The reason for this is that inhaled cannabinoids are going straight to the lungs, which aren’t exactly built for cannabinoid absorption. While these methods are great for quick relief, they’re not very good at providing long-term effects and can lead to some discomfort when used in excess.
The way you choose to ingest your CBD could have a big impact on how effective it is. When cannabinoids enter the digestive system, they’re broken down by the liver into metabolites, which can have an effect on what benefits you get out of them. It’s also why ingesting CBD is seen as healthier than inhaling it with a vape pen or dab rig.
For optimal results, choose to eat your cannabinoids instead of vaping them. You’ll want to activate them first, so let them soak in a hot cup of tea or decarb your CBD vape juice. Once activated, you can easily mix it with food such as yogurt, juice, or smoothies. The fat content is what makes the cannabinoids more bioavailable – without it, they aren’t very easy to absorb.
There are also other ways to improve CBD absorption, including the use of digestive enzymes (such as this one) and CBD topicals. These can help give you a healthy boost after eating your activated cannabinoids.
It’s possible to build up a tolerance to CBD pretty quickly, since it doesn’t directly affect cannabinoid receptors in the brain like THC does. Instead, CBD effects the body’s endocannabinoid system. If you take a large enough dose of CBD, it will get activated and cause you to feel sleepy or stoned. While this might be cool for some people, others would prefer not to get high at all.
If you’re looking for medicinal benefits without the potential drowsiness or psychoactive effects, then there are some strategies that can help you avoid developing a tolerance to CBD vape juice and other products. The first strategy is cycling; it’s best not to take CBD everyday for the same reason why you wouldn’t take ibuprofen every day (for your kidneys’ sake).
The second way to keep yourself from building up a tolerance is to increase the amount of CBD you take. Studies show that it can be effective at treating seizures when patients use as much as 1,500 mg a day. This method should only be used if you’re suffering from severe conditions and can’t find relief with lower doses – otherwise, cycling will probably do the trick without making your wallet suffer.
There are other ways to keep yourself from building up a tolerance, such as taking CBD with food or using it sublingually (under the tongue). Generally speaking, these methods will increase bioavailability and decrease the chances that you’ll develop a tolerance.
CBD Dosing Guidelines
It’s not uncommon for first-time users to overdo it when they try CBD. You might be trying to find your optimal dose, and as a result you end up taking too much. Most people who do this report drowsiness and feelings of being stoned (which isn’t always the best feeling).
The key is to start small. Much like edibles, it can take a while for CBD to kick in. Your best bet is to start with a small dose (such as 5 mg) and then wait at least 90 minutes before taking more. If you still don’t feel it after that, try bumping your dose up by 5 mg until you do find relief.
For beginners, it’s always better to err on the side of caution. If you’ve never taken CBD before, it’s a good idea to ask your doctor for advice on how to start off with the right dose. You should also keep in mind that CBD is fat-soluble and has different effects depending on its intended use – this means that things like vaping CBD e-juice or eating CBD edibles will have different effects than using CBD sublingually.
Exercise can help improve your endocannabinoid system which can also help with any issues with CBD tolerance. I would recommend doing a 30 minute at least every day in order to stay healthy and to get the most out of your CBD.
There are many benefits to exercise including CBD benefits. As well as being able to improve your endocannabinoid system it can help you burn fat, reduce stress and clear your head (making it effective for treating depression).
Research has shown that people who get plenty of exercise have stronger immune systems than those who don’t – this is partly because exercise helps reduce inflammation. It’s also been shown that exercise can help prevent a wide range of diseases and health problems, including heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer.
So what exercises should you do? There are all sorts of options to choose from, but it really depends on your personal preference as well as in the severity of your problem. For example, if you are suffering from arthritis then swimming or light jogging might be recommended over weightlifting.
By now you should have a pretty solid understanding of how to use CBD in the most effective way possible. These tips and tricks are also helpful if you’re just looking for general information on where to find high-quality, lab-tested products that can help ease your symptoms.
