Maximize the benefits of CBD – Simple Guide
This article contains the most essential question answered on the topic of how you can in simple steps maximize the benefits of CBD to your health, including mental health and overall feeling. Many CBD users may already have noticed CBD’s positive impact on their daily life, but even the most loyal users may do some things not to its fullest, and it is quite normal. Since CBD is a kind of a fresh topic and being argued amongst scientists, there are actual results being proven by users of CBD. So just relax, find a comfortable position to read this article and enjoy the reading.
1. How CBD works

Once again, CBD is a hemp flower with a high and therapeutic concentration of cannabidiol (CBD) and very low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. While CBD has low THC, it means that the using of CBD on a daily basis and any time of the day will not trigger any psychoactivity of your brain, on the other hand – it will guarantee your physical and mild relaxation, helping you to obtain calm, stress and anxiety-free mood all day long.
Before we jump into learning more about CBD benefits, it’s important to know how it actually impacts our body.
CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) interact with the body in various ways. One of the main ways is to simulate and enhance the effects of compounds in the body called “endogenous cannabinoids” – so they are called because of their similarity to the compounds contained in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of what scientists call the “endocannabinoid system.”
The discovery of the endocannabinoid system has greatly advanced the understanding of health and diseases too. This has serious implications for almost every field of medical science and helps explain how and why CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are such universal compounds – and why cannabis is such a widely consumed plant despite its illegal status in some countries.
The endocannabinoid system consists of endocannabinoids and their receptors and plays a crucial role in regulating a wide range of physiological processes that affect our daily experience – our mood, our energy, our intestinal resistance, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger. It affects different parts of the body, but the ultimate goal is homeostasis (internal balance).
“What happens if the endocannabinoid system does not function properly? What are the consequences of a chronically deficient or a hyperactive endocannabinoid system?”
Modern science has shown that the endocannabinoid system is disrupted in almost all pathological conditions. Thus, it is quite logical that “modulating endocannabinoid system activity may have therapeutic potential in almost all diseases affecting humans,” as suggested in the publication of the year by Pal Pacher and George Kunos, scientists from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
By modulating the endocannabinoid system and increasing the endocannabinoid tone, CBD can actually slow down or (in some cases) stop the progression of a wide range of diseases.
Basically, CBD helps to improve your physical health drastically in a very mild and therapeutic way, depending on the source of your problem. Whether you are looking to just relax, let’s say after a long day – CBD is a great way to do so (without attracting illegal activities, or drinking alcohol, for example); if you experience sexual problems – both male and female reproductive organs – CBD can actually help you to experience new feelings in the bedroom; if you feel stress and anxiety followed by broken sleeping schedule or poor eating habits (including your digestive system) – CBD is again going to be a great solution to your problem.
2. CBD and THC, what’s the difference?
There are two different types of CBD products — cannabis-based CBD and products with THC. Both contain CBD, and both are derived from the cannabis plant, however, cannabis and THC products are just absolutely different varieties of the plant.
We will focus on the cannabis-based CBD, because tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive and is not used in Marry Jane’s products. CBD oil does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (a compound that causes a feeling of “elation”). This is an important distinction that many people don’t understand.
The variety that is commonly and legally used to make CBD oil is cannabis. What is the difference between hemp oil? A plant can legally be considered cannabis only if it contains 0.3% (or less) per dry unit of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound.
In a nutshell, CBD oil or hemp oil contains the benefits of the cannabis plant without the potential drawbacks of psychoactive compounds that are commonly found by inhalation or other methods of consumption.
3. Benefits of CBD – how many are there?
CBD may be an excellent remedy for many diseases, and the list can go on and on. You don’t have to have any special condition or have a specific reason to start using or adding CBD into your daily life routine. You can always use CBD for general relaxation. However, there are a number of problems, or inconveniences that CBD is successful at dealing with. Whether you may have experienced them, or not really, CBD will drastically improve every sphere of your life.
- Relief from chronic pain
The first and the absolute well-known magic-like quality of CBD is of course – helping the pain go away. Those who suffer from chronic pain from different diseases had been very positive about the impact of CBD to their level of pain. Taking CBD can relieve pain and even prevent degeneration of the nervous system. What’s really amazing is that CBD doesn’t cause addiction or tolerance, so it’s a great choice for those trying to stay away from hard drugs.
- It has antiepileptic properties
CBD has antiepileptic properties that have been shown to successfully treat drug-resistant children with neurological disorders such as epilepsy (without side effects!). In one study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, CBD reduced the frequency of seizures by 23 percent more than those who took a placebo, instead of CBD infused products.
Although some people much prefer natural remedies as a first course of action, even the Food and Drug Administration seems to agree that medicinal products derived from cannabis can offer something valuable to society. In April 2018, FDA advisers approved the very first drug derived from cannabis, which promises to help control seizures.
- Reduces anxiety and depression
There are a bunch of people who suffer from anxiety and depression every year all around the world. Studies show that CBD oil can help in both cases.
CBD has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety levels in those suffering from conditions such as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), social anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. CBD has been shown to reduce depression by enhancing both serotonergic and glutamate cortical signaling (both are absent in patients with depression).
There is no exact scientific guarantee on how CBD deals with anxiety. One theory states that it stimulates the blood flow to the nervous endings in the brain, leading to over-concentrated areas (also known as stress hormones) to stop being produced, and therefore releases hormones of happiness. That is in a quite simple explanation of how CBD deals with stress and anxiety.
Whether it is something you want to get rid of, or you have an important upcoming event, or even a sexual intercourse, CBD will be a great solution to a long-lasting stress and a fast working help. However, it mostly depends on the way of consumption, which will be covered a little more closely below.
- Fights multidrug-resistant bacteria
Researchers have found that cannabinoids (including CBD) have an unusual ability to destroy bacteria (especially drug-resistant strains). More research is needed to find out how and why this works.
A 2011 study found that CBD can also slow the progression of tuberculosis in rats. The researchers concluded that CBD probably does this by inhibiting T-cell proliferation rather than having antibacterial properties.
Whatever the mechanism for killing bacteria, CBD seems to be a powerful weapon against antibiotic-resistant “super popular insects”, which are becoming an increasingly serious problem today.
- Reduces inflammation
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, chronic inflammation is a huge problem in our society, which contributes to the emergence of many non-communicable diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune diseases and much more.
Diet and lifestyle play a huge role in chronic inflammation, but when people already eat a healthy, nutrient-rich diet and optimize their lifestyle (for example, enough sleep and exercise), CBD oil can help. Studies also show that CBD oil can reduce the chronic inflammation that leads to illness.
- Reduces oxidative stress (large number of free radicals)
Oxidative stress is the cause of many diseases today. Oxidative stress is the situation when there are too many free radicals in the body, and the body does not have time to neutralize them (antioxidants). This is more of a problem now than in the past because our environment is much more toxic than it once was. Some studies show that CBD oil acts as an antioxidant, and another study showed that CBD has neuroprotective properties. In this way, CBD can reduce the neurological damage caused by free radicals.
- Helps with schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a complex and serious disease that is usually treated with therapy and pharmaceuticals (which have serious side effects). Ironically, many people have found that CBD oil has helped to reduce hallucinations. Research is also beginning to develop this direction. A review of available research conducted in March 2015 showed that CBD is a safe, effective and well-tolerated treatment for psychosis. But additional research is needed to introduce CBD into clinical practice.
*It should be noted that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive substance in marijuana, can actually increase psychosis for those at risk. CBD oil, on the other hand, only helps to reduce psychosis and may even counteract the psychosis caused by marijuana use.
- Promotes weight loss
Cannabidiol can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, stimulate genes and proteins that help break down fats, and increase mitochondria that helps to burn calories.
CBD also encourages the body to convert white fat into brown. White fat is the type of fat that is deposited in the form of “ugly” subcutaneous deposits when we think about fat deposits. Brown fat is fat that behaves differently from white fat in small deposits. Brown fat is believed to improve health by improving the body’s ability to burn white fat, create heat, and even regulate blood sugar levels.
- Improves heart health
Heart disease is a growing problem today. In fact, it is the leading cause of deaths in the United States. A healthy diet and lifestyle is a top priority for heart health, but CBD oil can also become a great solution. According to research, cannabidiol reduces arterial blockage, reduces cardiovascular response caused by stress, and can lower blood pressure. It can also lower cholesterol levels in the body, which leads to a healthier heartbeat and heart.
As mentioned earlier, CBD oil is useful for preventing oxidative stress and inflammation. Both of them are often precursors of heart disease.
- Improves skin condition
CBD oil can be used to treat skin diseases. Studies show that CBD oil has high potential to treat skin diseases such as eczema by stimulating abnormal cell death. It can also help regulate the production of oil in the skin, reducing acne. CBD also contains many nutrients, such as vitamin E, which helps to improve and protect skin.
- Fighting cancer
The role of CBD oil in cancer treatment still needs more research, but what is available for reading looks promising. According to the American Cancer Society, CBD oil can slow the growth and spread of certain cancers (in animals). Since it fights oxidative stress and inflammation (and both are linked to cancer), it makes sense that CBD oil can help fight cancer cells.
- Improves motor disorders
This is another health problem that CBD can help to cope with. The motor disorders that this substance supports include dystonia, as well as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. CBD, first of all, has an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, which can have a great impact on improving the health of a person who is struggling with motor disorders, both primary and secondary.
4. CBD usage and dosage – how to?
CBS products are available in various forms: oil, capsules, gummies, suppositories, vape oils, topical creams and so on. The usage method depends on your personal preferences and the desired effect. For example, a person suffering from arthritis pain may prefer to use a topical cream, applying it to the joints to relieve pain. However, there is nothing wrong with using other methods. The method of application of CBD depends on the dose that you need and the duration of action of CBD.
There is no specific rule for taking CBD and CBD oil. The goal is to get the cannabinoids into your body and bring you the relief you need. Most people who use CBD prefer food products or tinctures, because the effect of them, as a rule, lasts longer than when using other methods of CBD intake. Inhalations are great for relieving symptoms within a few minutes, but the effect of them is not so long-lasting.
It should also be noted that you are not limited to one method! Some people prefer to use one method of reception in the morning and another in the evening. For example, some people prefer to take dietary supplements or tinctures in the morning, and use vape at home in the evening. Therefore, the method that you should choose depends on the results that you want to get, on their duration, and your convenience of using it.
5. There are a few main ways to take CBD:
– Smoking or vaping? Bud or oil?
Inhalation of CBD is a well-known, well-practiced and long-time existing practice. Every CBD user or a person who had heard of it and wanted to try, they first considered smoking it. This method mostly got associated with smoking cannabis, but those, who think that smoking has a bad effect on lungs, can try a much healthier way to inhale cannabinoids – vaporization, for that you can use a CBD oil that is specifically made for such a way of usage.
You can also use cannabis seeds with a high content of CBD, but this method of use may be limited by the laws of your country of residence. One thing remains unchanged: vaporization is one of the fastest and most effective methods.
– How long does it take for vaporized CBD oil to take effect?
Inhalation is the fastest, and you can just stop as soon as you feel that it’s enough. Thanks to this method, useful properties are activated the fastest way possible. Within 30 minutes you will feel the maximum impact, and the effect will last about 1-4 hours depending on the dosage you’ve chosen.
Edibles & Capsules
Edible CBD is available in the form of food, candy, chocolate or chewing gum, or any other way you can think of.
How long does it take for food CBD to take effect? / How long does the effect last?
The duration of this method is the longest, but it also takes longer for it to start showing effect, since your body needs to metabolize CBD first. When using this method, you should consider it may take from 1 to 2 hours to feel the effect of CBD, but its effect will definitely last longer.
When eating foods with CBD, you have more freedom of choice, and the strongest side effect that can occur will be a state of fatigue. It is very unlikely that CBD will cause you a state of anxiety or other unpleasant side effects.
Sublingual method means taking CBD oil under the tongue and holding it there for some time. Usually it happens with using a tiny pipette that comes in a bottle with the CBD oil. CBD oil is a natural and liquid extract of plants that is developed exactly for using it sublingually. You can choose the amount of CBD you need and wish to use.
– What does CBD oil taste like? Flavored or not flavored?
It depends on your personal preferences. CBD oil has an earthy and bitter taste. If you like the taste of cannabis, you will most likely like the taste of CBD oil. At the same time, there are many options with different flavors, if the earthy taste is not for you.
– How long does it take for the CBD tincture to take effect? / How long does the effect last?
Taking CBD under the tongue is the second fastest method after inhalation. You will feel the effect of taking CBD for about 15-60 minutes, and the maximum effect will occur within 1-2 hours. The action will last from 2 to 6 hours. Some people use this method 3 times a day.
Since CBD oil is a relatively new additive, the exact dosage is not precisely established. Although longer studies are needed, there is no established “overdose” of CBD, and very few side effects at any dosage.
Important Note: Although CBD oil is very safe by itself, it can interact with medications in an unpredictable way, especially with opioids. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about the interaction or are unsure about using CBD oil for any of your conditions. Moreover, choose the right product and CBD product producer.
CBD-based skin products are available in the form of ointments, creams and lotions. Topical creams are not psychoactive and are commonly used to treat pain, inflammatory skin rashes and bacterial skin infections. It is believed that cannabinoids have a good effect on the skin due to their powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Both CB1 and CB2 receptors have been found in the skin, and it is believed that the endocannabinoid system plays an important role in the immune response of our skin.
The CBD cream can be used for pain relief (arthritic pain, muscle pain), joint swelling, inflammatory skin condition, acne, psoriasis, rash, bacterial infections, skin cancer, neck and back pain and even nerve pain, the list may go on.
CBD is used locally for skin diseases from acne to eczema and even for joint pain. According to research, CBD has proven to be a strong anti-inflammatory agent. Therefore, for conditions such as rash, acne or other skin conditions caused by inflammation, CBD can help. CBD has a good effect not only on skin diseases, but can also be used locally to relieve pain. For arthritis, back pain or muscle pain, we recommend using CBD cream in this area. It works especially well on knees, elbows and hands.
Studies have shown that CBD cream can also be used to treat tumors and skin cancer.* These studies have shown that when applied to the skin, CBD can contribute to the suspension of the growth and spread of cancer cells. The cannabis plant has antibacterial properties that can fight MRSA. MRSA is a bacterial infection that causes many problems due to its resistance to many antibiotics.
*We do not recommend self-treatment with CBD, please consult with your doctor if you are having a serious disease condition, before starting to use CBD.
Finding out CBD dosage:
If you are just starting to use CBD, it is recommended to take small doses of CBD and carefully observe what is happening. The body and the reasons for using CBD are different for each person, and the standard dose will not suit everyone. We recommend users to experiment until they find their ideal dosage.
6. Maximize CBD benefits
Now that we have learned all the famous ways of taking CBD, dosages and products with CBD, it is time to answer the main question – how to maximize CBD benefits for your health, your body and your mental health.
You need to have a wise strategy with sublingual CBD intake. We learned that when CBD is taken under the tongue, it allows saliva to spread CBD and its benefits fast to your bloodstream and lets you feel all the good stuff in almost no time, or at least much faster compared to oral consumption through your digestive system. However, there is a simple trick to maximize the effect right away, simply hold it longer under your tongue before swallowing these few drops. Just allow it to sit under your tongue for a good few minutes, no need to rush it, perhaps, the longer the better. That way your body will absorb the CBD fast and you’ll feel the relaxation almost immediately.
Not even an ounce of less important advice is to try to consume fatty acids when you take your CBD in any form.
According to a 2016 study, examined by scientists, the results of adding fatty acids when taking CBD lead to the following result:
“Co-administration of dietary lipids or pharmaceutical lipid excipients may substantially increase the systemic exposure to orally administered cannabis or cannabis-based medicines.”
This basically means that when you take CBD in any form and add fatty acids to your diet, it leads to an inevitable increase of CBD’s efficiency, thus making it more beneficial to your whole body. You can either have a dinner or a supper full of mentioned acids, and before or after take CBD in any form that you fancy the most to achieve maximum effect. These fatty acids reach its highest concentration in cold-water fish, such as tuna, herring, sardines or salmon; fatty acids are also present in nuts, avocado, coconut oil, chia seeds. Therefore you can have a wide range of products to select from to add to your daily diet plans, and it is also very beneficial for your health. These products will basically carry your digestive system alongside CBD, allowing CBD to extract its benefits even further, both prolonging and enhancing the effect of CBD.
Another way to maximize desired benefits of CBD would be to try and experiment with dosages. Maybe you are an experienced user, but you feel like recently the CBD isn’t quite as effective as before, or on the other hand you are just starting. Do not worry, the first thing you need to know is that your body gets used to CBD, meaning that you will still feel the effect of little dosages, however it always depends on the result you wish to achieve. If you feel like you want to have a stronger effect, then slowly make the dose bigger.
7. How to use CBD products
- Under the tongue
For example, CBD oil under the tongue, in case you are just about to start. Make sure that you have eaten today, or it has just been 20-30 minutes since your last meal.
– We recommend taking the lowest CBD concentration of 5%. Trust us. First you may want to use 1 drop under your tongue and let it sit in there for 1-3 minutes and then it will dissolve. And with time you can either increase the amount of drops or the time of holding it under your tongue, and when you feel ready you may switch to a higher percentage. In our catalogue we have up to 30% CBD concentration!
– In case you have tried enough CBD already and wish to make it greater, we recommend to take a stronger CBD concentration such as 15-30%, like 20% MCT CBD oil or CBD Oil Regular 20%. You may want to try out 1 drop first, but if you know what you’re doing then take 3-5 drops and try to hold it under your tongue for at least 5 minutes to reach its maximum effect. Be careful and do not dive into the deeper right away, just take things slow and experiment, after all no one can advise you how to best navigate your body, but you.
– Remember to listen to your body’s response first, it doesn’t mean that today you start with 5% 1 drop, and tomorrow switch to 3 drops of 15% CBD oil, it may be dangerous and lead to fatigue and nausea. Just handle with care and proceed with required caution. Always start with the low dose, no matter how experienced you are, it is better to be safe than to regret. Once you’ve been on a specific dosage enough, and you feel like you need more, try it first with a tiny difference (1 extra drop, or 1 extra minute under your tongue, but not the swan dive off the cliff). Because it is always challenging to appreciate when good turns to good enough and then exceeds beyond good, so think carefully and clearly before you jump onto a new CBD concentration or more drops.
This is the real key to maximize CBD’s best qualities. Remember, that CBD isn’t a drug and it doesn’t need to be taken in a form of appreciation for some good work or after a long day, it is a natural and beneficial addition to your daily life, and not a ‘treat’. Therefore, you don’t need to encourage yourself every time before getting CBD, you do not need to earn its effects, you simply may have it, just like that, without any special reason. Most people use it when they wish to feel calm or relaxed, without the need to win.
Therefore, if you stay consistent with your CBD, and it’s the perfect dosage for you, it will absolutely show all it’s great benefits not just for 1 time, but in general, such as better sleeping schedule, better diet, lowered anxiety and stress on a daily basis, sounds like a fair deal, isn’t it? Just take it slow and do you, do not stress if you miss a day or two or a month, just use it how you feel it best.
Marry Jane’s products have in their assortment full-spectrum CBD products, such as e-liquids for vaping. Free of THC, these vaping liquids are designed for you to have the so-called ‘entourage’ effect, which offers the highest level of benefits, because multiple cannabinoids, terpenes and fatty acids are combined together, extracted from pure CBD hemp flowers. This way it interacts with your body in the most natural and beneficial way to your health, providing all the pros at the same time.
It is also a well-known fact that a better CBD usage is when you try to avoid letting it into your digestive system, rather just let it go straight into your bloodstream. It can easily be achieved by simply vaping e-liquid, smoking pure dried plant or using oils under your tongue. If you do not wish to smoke or use oil orally, we suggest applying oil on your skin or near your nose, that way you can smell the fumes and the skin will absorb it quite fast too, without the need to take CBD.
- Sports body gels
If you are looking for the way to relieve, let’s say sore muscles, or a mosquito bite without interacting with anxiety or any other problems, it is a good chance to take a look at sports body gels, which come in cooling and warming options. That way it will bring relief to the very spot of the need, and guarantee you direct result on the spot.
Nowadays CBD products are the newest trends for self-care and self-love. Even though it had been known for quite some time, only now it is being thoroughly tested by scientists and spoken of in different circles. More and more people annually discover its pure and natural beneficial qualities to our minds and bodies, and that is very exciting. More young people refuse to use drugs and alcohol, and slowly switch to safer options, yet with the guaranteed result of feeling mild relaxation and stress release. CBD indeed provides numerous great qualities to your body, some of them were scientifically proven and some are still being studied, but there are a lot of people to prove that it actually works, but the strictest judge will be you after you try it by yourself.
CBD taken in any form will take away your stress and anxiety, even the worst social one. It is great at instantly relieving any type of pain – on the inside or on the outside, it will improve your sleep and diet. At Marry Jane, CBD products come in various forms, and each and every one of them is beneficial in its own way, united by one simple thing – care. We care about the products we produce and what results you get, meaning that we only use our indoor grown CBD and it is always third party lab tested, which excludes any poor quality of the final product.
Once you find your favorite products, or just enter the doors to the CBD world, your game will change for good, and it is always guaranteed to be in a good way. Guaranteed psychoactive – free feeling, and CBD will not interfere with your daily life, but will only improve your thinking, your feelings and emotions.
The way you choose to use CBD will actually determine how you will feel, whether CBD will kick in right away, or take a few hours to go through your digestive system and into your bloodstream. Let’s once again determine do’s and don’ts when it comes to CBD, so you’ll make sure that you won’t experience any overusage drowsiness on an important business meeting.
We hope that this article helped you to understand your own personal limits and how to proceed with dosage, because it is indeed important to not get ahead of yourself. If you know what kind of dosage you need, it will be a bad idea to experiment with bigger doses before some important meeting or gathering, because you may never know how your body will react. CBD is proven to be safe and non-psychoactive, however its side effects are nausea and fatigue, which aren’t very pleasurable.
For example, if you ate a few gummies or capsules with CBD, it is important that you approximately understand what time it usually takes for your body to absorb it and let you feel the effect, whether it is 40 minutes or 2 hours, it is very unique. Keep your diet steady and try not to throw 40 chocolate bars and chips with CBD, if on a daily basis you eat salads and steamed meat. Just don’t go too far from what you usually do, and remember that consistency is the key.
Do not be worried if little doses of CBD already make you feel great, as mentioned before, everyone is unique. If someone’s first CBD experience was great by vaping 10 puffs one by one, it doesn’t mean that 1 puff for you is good enough already. Do not chase after others, just do you. If you have a chance to try out CBD oil under the tongue, start with 1 drop instead of 5 for example, slow doesn’t mean bad.
By starting with slow and little doses you will learn right away how your body reacts and you will know what dosage you need, even if you have had experience before. If you do 1 drop of 15% oil every evening for example, and then take a 1 month break, it is best to try 10% one drop with every 2-3 days break, because your body may have changed a bit. It is always a great idea to consult with your doctor before trying something new or switching to stronger doses.
Be kind to yourself, do not force something if it is not working. If you feel like CBD isn’t that good for you, and you have tried all the possible ways of intaking it – well, do not force it. Do not force CBD to kick in faster, if you have a box of oil capsules and you wish for it to kick in within 2 minutes, it just won’t happen, no need to eat 25 of them. Just relax, catch the vibe of acceptance and enjoy your time being. We won’t try to scare you into what may happen if you overdose, usually it is nothing serious, just perhaps a headache, stomach stamps and maybe some bathroom emergency. Do not worry, you won’t get any psychoactivity and be caught drunk driving, it is absolutely safe in that way, but what’s the pleasure of driving with fatigue? None.
You should really pay attention to actually reading the instructions of how to use the CBD products you’re about to take. Since there is no absolute standard every CBD producer has agreed upon, each company’s CBD and products that contain CBD differ. It may start with different oils combinations, and even end around the fact that the product you have is actually a placebo and has very little CBD percentage in its ingredients. Make sure that you got your CBD from a reliable company, best if they were third party lab tested, that way you will know for sure whether what they claim to be their marketing strategies align with reality.
Also, the way each company grows and breeds CBD may differ, as well as the way the production happens, because it definitely influences the final effects of the product. Just read the label carefully, make sure that cannabidiol was indoor grown, best to be third party lab tested, make sure that it contains pure concentration of CBD without any side chemicals. After that just read the instructions, and follow them for at least the first few times of using, it will save you time and energy, after that you may add some experimenting as you feel like. Please avoid CBD intake in any form without reading the label first, otherwise you may face unwanted consequences of overdose, poor quality products and so on.
If you are taking any type of medicine, make sure how it interacts with CBD. CBD is very safe and natural by itself, however only your doctor may actually let you know whether it will interfere with the way your medication works. It doesn’t necessarily influence the drugs you take, but it affects your nervous endings, hormones, therefore it may affect the metabolism in your liver when it’s supposed to do it in one way, and because of CBD the opposite may happen. CBD can also interact with some herbs and bio supplements you may take, so make sure to let your doctor know about CBD and you can have your risks calculated by a professional.
Since the CBD market isn’t supervised by authorities, companies that produce CBD may add any information they think fit to the label. Some companies may actually scam their customers, by saying that product contains CBD, while in fact it is not true, as well as some companies may use CBD isolates and not an actual full-spectrum CBD oil. And if that is just not enough, it is possible to find bad quality CBD products, when some companies may add butane or hexane to their products, which of course lowers the quality of the final products drastically, leading to user’s headache and fatigue, and you do not want that. Therefore, to avoid such poor quality products, you must do your research and get CBD products only from reliable companies with good reputation and with proof of their quality. You can learn more about Marry Jane’s philosophy and history by clicking the link.
Always keep in mind that CBD won’t solve your health problems in a heartbeat or make them disappear. Yes it will drastically relieve some of the discomfort you experience, maybe a giant part of it, like social anxiety, erectile dysfunction, muscle pain and so on, but it won’t be able to execute miracles and cure Lupus, for example. So make sure that your current health plan and medication won’t get interrupted with CBD and won’t get affected by CBD, because we only want you to use CBD for its benefits, and not to harm yourself.
CBD isn’t the ultimate cure, but it is definitely something that will improve your daily life, improve your mood, your digestion and so on and so forth.
Once you start using CBD in any form, the wonders just start to come in, more and more ideas and different dosage ideas pop in your head, because each body is unique. There is no special rule on how to use CBD properly, just purely based on your experience (after you’ve carefully learned the label). Everything mentioned above are pro-tips that will make your experience with CBD unforgettable, and help you save lots of time, however they aren’t a must. Perhaps while using CBD you may come up with your own technique or a ritual that will allow you to have all the CBD’s best qualities work for your benefit.
