You’re Not Taking the Right Dose

Finding the correct dosage of CBD is complicated. “CBD at the tiny doses that people are taking (10 to 40 milligrams) is simply not effective,” said Jordan Tishler, MD, a Harvard physician, cannabis therapeutics specialist, and the CEO/CMO at InhaleMD. He pointed out studies on CBD that show that doses need to be much, much higher — think 600 to 1,200 mg.

Your Product Isn’t High-Quality

You need to do your research on the products you’re buying. “Unfortunately, some products could have a very low concentration or even no CBD at all,” said Joel Stanley, cofounder and chairman of CW Hemp. A consumer should be able to request batch testing that shows purity and potency.

You May Need a Blend of Cannabinoids

 “CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. You may in fact need a more complex cannabinoid profile in the plant for it to be effective,” said Todd Mitchem, manageing partner and cannabis expert at DacorumStrategies.  High-quality CBD can help with ailments like depression, and highly concentrated topical CBD can also be very effective for pain. If you want to use CBD to treat chronic ailments like Crohn’s disease, he said you would benefit more from a blend of CBD and another cannabinoid, like THC. But THC is a psychoactive compound, so these formulations would only be available in countries where marijuana is legal.

You Haven’t Been Using It Long Enough

The longer-term effects of CBD, such as the anti-inflammatory properties, require daily use, and the benefits can be felt after two to four weeks. CBD over time interacts with the cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system and the immune system to trigger a response from your cells, thus creating the painkilling and anti-inflammatory effects.

“Even though some consumers have quick success, this is a dietary supplement,” said Joel Stanley, cofounder and chairman of CW Hemp. “It takes time for some of us to experience something as simple as balance in our body. Balance can appear in very different ways for different people. Also, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the label.”
