What should we pay attention to when choosing CBD, how to use it, how long should CBD be used to see the effects and many other answers
When choosing a CBD extract, what should we pay attention to?
On many websites that offer CBD extracts, we can find information about its concentration per milliliter of fluid. When choosing the right one for us, remember that the concentration in the bottle is not the same as the dose we should take. It is not really important what concentration we buy, it’s important that we always start with a small amount of CBD and increase the dose as needed. For starters, it’s best to choose extracts with a low concentration of CBD and start with one drop and increase the dose if necessary until you notice the effects. Remember that concentration is not important – the dose is important.
It is also good to pay attention to the information whether the extract you buy has the full spectrum of cannabinoids (preferred, because then it acts synergistically with others) or whether it is an isolated CBD.
How long does CBD last for?
Before you read, remember that the absorption system varies from person to person, so these times should serve as a gentle guideline. The best way is to observe your body yourself 🙂ingest
The biggest factor influencing the duration of action is how youCBD. We can distinguish 4 ways: inhalation, smearing on a designated place, swallowing or taking it under the tongue.
In the first method (by inhalation), the effects can be observed very quickly, but they only last from 1 to 4 hours.
In the second method (application to the skin) the effect is immediate and the durability is quite short as it usually disappears shortly after the ointment or liquid is rubbed off the smeared area.
In the third method (swallowing), we have to wait quite a long time for the effects (up to 1 hour), but the effects will last quite a long time, even up to 8 hours.
The last way (taking under the tongue), the effects are visible up to 40 minutes and can last up to 6 hours.
Assuming, remember that for some people a single dose taken at the beginning of the day is sufficient, others prefer to take it every few hours to keep the effect. It all depends on our preferences.
How often should i take CBD?
It all depends on what effects you expect. Most people take it once or twice a day. It all depends on how you take it and how quickly your body absorbs it. If someone is taking for a better sleep, it is enough once a day (at bedtime). If someone has areas of the body that they use, they usually do it several times a day.
How long does it take to take CBD to see results?
It all depends on the form in which we take CBD. The fastest way is to inhale CBD through a special vaporizer or inhaler. Then the effect is immediate.
The second fastest way is directly to the wound or area that needs to be healed. Within minutes.
The third place is taking the CBD extract under the tongue – then the duration of action is from 15 to 40 minutes.
The longest for the effects is when we take CBD in the form of capsules or in nutritional products. However, the effects of taking CBD in this form last the longest. It can then work for up to 8 hours (compared to CBD taken with the above-mentioned methods where the effect lasts up to 4 hours).
However, it should be remembered that the time of action and subsequent effects depends individually on the person. Each person feels the effects differently.
At the beginning it is recommended to take small doses, wait about an hour for the effects and only then take the next dose.

Does CBD help with learning and ADHD?

CBD – does it have any side effects?
Clinical trials have shown that taking CBD, even in doses much higher than recommended, has almost no side effects. In very rare cases only slight dizziness, diarrhea or decreased / increased appetite have been noted. It should be noted, however, that in the studies the doses were much higher than the recommended ones.
If we notice any side effects (e.g. increased fatigue), it may not be due to CBD, but to another ingredient that is part of the extract we have purchased (many people feel tired, e.g. from terpenes).
