CBD Oil – How Much And How Long Before You See Improvement?

Over the past 20 years, research has been accumulating to show that CBD oil from hemp plants can have a positive, sometimes dramatic affect on many unwanted health conditions including arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and an assortment of neurological disorders.

Cannabidiol or CBD is the main substance in CBD oil. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which you’ll find in medical marijuana, CBD does not have psychoactive effects.

CBD oil will not make you feel high, spacey, weird, or dopey.

How much should you take and how long before you notice any improvements in your symptoms?

A number of factors influence how effective and how long CBD oil takes to work. For starters, the actual symptom(s) that you are trying to alleviate influences how much you may need, and long it will take to feel the effects of CBD oil. Other factors that come into play include the concentration of the CBD, the particle size and of course the dosage.

CBD oil that is taken sublingually, or under the tongue, is another very fast way to feel the effects of the oil. It is then directly absorbed into the bloodstream without having to go through the digestive system or liver to be metabolized.

CBD oil gel caps taken orally take longer to become active.

The CBD oil will need to go through the digestive system and be absorbed, after which the liver will need to metabolize it before you feel any effects.

In the majority of cases, it takes about an hour to feel the effects of CBD oil after you ingest it. However, effects may be felt in as little as 20 minutes on an empty stomach. The more food you’ve eaten before consuming CBD oil, the longer the effects will take to kick in.

The effects of the CBD last much longer because it is absorbed more slowly through the skin over time.

Some people may be anxious to feel the effects of CBD oil right away and may be tempted to take a large quantity of the product in order to make that happen. However, it is important to start with a low dosage and gradually increase the amount in order to minimize any negative side effects that may come with a sudden high-quantity ingestion of CBD oil.

The effects of CBD oil tend to last for a few hours, so there’s no need to worry about taking a large amount to ensure that your symptoms don’t return too quickly.

Also keep in mind that not all CBD oil products are created equal.

Full Spectrum Whole Plant Extracts Work Best

Studies show that CBD only is somewhat effective, but full spectrum strains or the whole plant extract not only provides faster and better relief, the effects also last longer. The entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts.

The Entourage Effect is the results (the effect) produced from the synergistic interaction of the numerous natural chemicals, including cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis plants, including hemp. The Entourage Effect refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together as opposed to just one or two of these compounds working in isolation.

Simply put: the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from consuming multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at-a-time.

Nanotechnology Increases Absorption

Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology that are conducted at the nano-scale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers.

Nanotechnology allows compounds like CBD to be safely broken down into smaller particles that provide higher bioavailability and therapeutic effects.  Nano-emulsified CBD oil rapidly absorbs up to 80-90% of every dose into the bloodstream compared to only 35% with other CBD products in the market.

The Science Behind the Faster Absorption.

Regular CBD can be difficult to handle being sticky, not water soluble, and is 2000 nm (nanometers). This results in low bioavailability in the body which means you need to consume more of the product to get the results you want.

Essential Therapeutics CBD products use particles that are 25-60 nanometers in size.

This special nano-emulsion process makes our formulas five times more bioavailable than traditional oil-based products. It also makes them four times more bioavailable than other water-soluble hemp-based oils.

This means you can use less of our product to achieve the same level of benefit as the products sold by most other CBD suppliers.

My best recommendation is to start off with a low dose and gradually if needed increase the dose.

For the Essential Therapeutics Gel Caps

Start with 10mg once a day. Take with food. Start with one gel cap a day. If you don’t experience a difference in your symptoms, after 2-3 weeks, double your dose to one gel cap twice a day. Take with food.

For the Essential Therapeutics CBD Tinctures

Using a CBD tincture is one of the easiest ways to consume CBD. Simply fill the dropper, administer the oil under your tongue, then hold it there for 30 to 90 seconds before swallowing.

Essential Therapeutics 30ml 500mg CBD Tincture

500mg ÷ 30ml = 16.66MG of CBD per dropper (each full dropper is one milliliter or ml.)

and each full dropper contains roughly 16.66mg of CBD.

I recommend starting with half a dropper twice a day. If needed, increase your dose by half a dropper to a full dropper every 2-3 weeks until you experience a reduction in your symptoms.

Keep in mind that while you may need to initially increase your dose, you may find that overtime as the endocannabinoid system (ECS) becomes more regulated, you may be able to reduce your dose.
