Over the past few years, cannabidiol (“CBD”) has gained the reputation of a cure all, and marketers have leaned quite heavily into it. Plenty of companies that process and sell CBD have taken to making all kinds of medical claims to attract customers. However, the truth of the matter is that a large portion of the evidence backing CBD’s medical abilities is anecdotal, and the cannabis extract definitely won’t fix all your health issues.
It has become immensely popular in recent years, with CBD gummies being the third most searched for food in 2018. What a lot of marketing campaigns fail to say is that for the most part, CBD reacts with different people in different ways, and another person’s experience with CBD will not exactly mirror your own. So why do some people fail to see tangible results after consuming CBD?
For starters, CBD reacts with the endocannabinoid system (“ECS”), a peripheral nervous system in charge of maintaining the homeostasis or internal balance of the body. It is made up of individual cannabinoid receptors spread throughout the body, and everyone’s ECS is unique in both its make up and level of functionality. Like a fingerprint, no two are alike, so everyone’s reaction will be slightly different based on their ECS.
While smoking or vaping cannabis has a more or less instantaneous effect, CBD can take a while, depending on the method of application. Topicals will offer quick results but if you’re ingesting your CBD, it may take you weeks of daily consistent use for the effects to kick in. A lot of the time, new users will approach it with an ‘instant gratification’ mindset, and seeing no results after a few doses, drop too soon.
Additionally, you may just be using the wrong product. Despite being only a few years old, the CBD space is filled with a huge variety of products. In broad terms, there are the full-spectrum products, which contain a host of other cannabinoids and terpenes, and there are the isolates, where all the other chemicals are stripped away to leave only CBD. Full-spectrum products are more popular as the sum of all the cannabinoids and terpenes work together in a complementary way in what has been termed the ‘entourage effect.’
Like most medicines, CBD doesn’t work in a vacuum, and you will have to put in effort for it to be effective. Eat healthy, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and consistent CBD use will supplement your healthy lifestyle.
The variation in the way different people respond to CBD may be the reason why industry actors like Round Meadow Holdings Corp. and Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE: GGB) (OTCQB: GGBXF) encourage customers to read all the available literature before choosing a CBD product to buy.
