Here's what you need to know

Hemp-derived CBD oil has become a popular supplement due to its effectiveness at alleviating pain and for its mood-boosting capabilities. With a variety of forms to choose from, how do you know the right type and dosage for you to find the fastest results?

Follow these pointers when searching for the right CBD product for you.

What Forms of CBD

can you take?

There are many ways that cannabidiol can be consumed. With a long list of products on the market, how can you know what will truly be effective to relieve your pain?

The form of Hemp that you choose depends on the condition you are looking to treat. Topical CBD , which includes balms, creams, sprays, and patches, are absorbed through the dermal layers of the skin and are best for targeting muscle pain and soreness or joint inflammation. 

For headaches or anxiety treatment, hemp-derived CBD may be consumed orally through oil, capsule, and softgel supplements.

Make sure to consult with your personal physician if you have any questions about the right forms of CBD for you. The form, dosage, and other factors are important with regard to condition support and a physician is a good source of general medical knowledge.

How quickly is it effective?

For the treatment of pain such as headaches and muscle soreness, simply apply a Hemp cream to the affected area or take the specified oral dose of CBD oil. This should take no longer than thirty minutes to an hour to take effect and provide you with relief. The amount and type of relief will be variable, of course.

The speed of effectiveness for CBD can vary from person to person, and it can be affected by both the form of CBD that you take as well as the quality of the product. Your weight, metabolic rate, and body composition also dictate how quickly and easily CBD is broken down within the body.

How Can You Boost

the effectiveness of your CBD?

1. Follow the dosage instructions on the product label.

There are instructions on the bottle of your CBD oil for a reason! Take the full amount of CBD oil indicated. This builds up the amount of CBD in your system. Missing a daily dose or taking less than the specified amount can lower the product’s efficiency.

To take the guesswork out of your dosage, you can also try CBD softgels for a standard daily dose, and increase as needed. 

2. Listen to your body.

Since everyone’s body responds differently to Hemp, you may consider spacing out your Hemp intake throughout your day. For example, if your daily dose is one dropper full once a day, experiment with taking half a dropper twice a day. Although to date we know of no adverse effects of this phytochemical, if you have any sort of bad reaction please stop taking the plant supplement.

3. Look for high-quality products with medical backing.

There are many brands and forms of CBD on the market, but it can be hard to find effective products that you can trust. Do your research beforehand to help you cut out the guesswork.
