What Do You Need to Know About CBD Products?

There is a ton of information out there about cannabinoids like CBD, but not all of it is good information. It can be difficult to figure out exactly what information is relevant to the people who want to actually use CBD.


Here’s what you need to know about products that include cannabinoids like CBD and THC.

How to Take It

There are a lot of different ways to use CBD products. Some of the most popular forms include a pure ingestible oil and vaping liquid, though many users also use food or water as a vector for the oil they want to take. They even make mints with CBD in it to make it easy to take on the go. There are a lot of options that might require a little bit of trial and error before users find the right dosage and format for themselves.

Intended Effects

The reasons that most people take CBD are numerous. CBD is made from hemp, not marijuana, so it’s legal all over the world. It gives a lot of the benefits of medical marijuana without the high. THC is the cannabinoid that gives users the high.


CBD acts as a mild sedative, helping to limit the severity of pain, reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure in users. It can also help people to sleep due to these other effects. THC can also help with all of these issues, but it also makes users feel high. In higher doses, it has more negative effects. It’s also illegal in many places due to the psychotropic high, which will make traveling with it difficult..


Possible Unintended Side Effects

CBD has been known to cause diarrhea, fatigue and even anxiety in some of its users. THC has been known to cause increased heart rate, dry mouth, coordination problems, reddened eyes, slower reaction times and memory loss. When used in higher doses, the chances of these negative effects increases. When combined, THC and CBD tend to counteract each other’s negative effects.


If someone were to use a high dosage, they might want to look into a combination of CBD and THC in order to balance out the effects they feel.


CBD and THC are also metabolized in the liver and kidneys, so people who struggle with the function of those organs should be even more careful with what they take. It is worth talking to a doctor before using these products to do everything you can to ensure your health.

How Long Does it Take to Work

Most people see the effects of ingested  CBD products within thirty minutes once they’ve built some of it up in their systems. Topical oils and balms tend to see a faster response time because they’re used to relieve surface level pain.  It can take up to two weeks for some to build up enough of it in their system to make their users feel something. If users do not feel anything after two to three weeks, they should try increasing their dosage.
