A common question our customers have regarding CBD use is…
“How long do CBD oils (and other products) stay in your system?”
There are several factors to consider when answering this, including how much you use, how often you use them, the strength of the product and more. As a result, starting your journey with CBD can often be quite daunting.
To help alleviate any concerns you may have and provide you with a little more information, this post will answer some of the frequently asked questions concerning the effects of our CBD oils and other product range.
The length of time our CBD products can remain active in your system will depend on how often you use them, the amount you consume, the method of consumption and your body. Using our CBD products consistently will enable you to gain the most benefit by topping up your Endocannabinoid system (ECS).
This is an internal system within most living things. Research continues to fully understand the ECS, but experts have concluded it plays an important role in regulating everyday functions, such as sleep, mood, temperature, inflammation, memory and more.
It acts on receptors throughout the central nervous system and in the brain too. When functioning correctly, your ECS helps maintain a state of balance in our cells, tissues and organs, also referred to as homeostasis. At Heed Life, achieving and maintaining homeostasis is at the core of everything we strive to provide our customers.
Our advice is to start using small amounts of our products (as directed) to help find your sweet spot. 70mg per day is widely recognised as the optimum amount for most people, but we all respond differently. Like with any supplement, consistency is key. So, we recommend starting with this amount for at least a week.
If you feel the effects and you’re satisfied, you can try decreasing the volume in small increments to find your true sweet spot. Conversely, you may find you need to increase in small amounts to get the same benefit. Having found what level works best for you, it’s simply a matter of maintaining your levels and reaping the potential benefits to your overall wellbeing.
Method of consumption plays a part in how your body responds to our products because of bioavailability. This refers to the amount of a substance that can be used by your body when entering your system.
We advise our customers to use our CBD products by applying them under the tongue. This is the most common method, allowing rapid absorption into your system through the sublingual gland, increasing bioavailability and ensuring you feel our products’ benefits generally within 30 minutes. You can expect to feel the benefits from between 2-6 hours depending upon the dosage.
As with most supplements, it’s important to understand that our bodies will get the most out of CBD products by consistent use. Building and maintaining our levels, as mentioned above. The same as many widely used vitamins and minerals.
Our purpose-built products will provide a subtle benefit, due to being infused with specific terpenes designed to help you relax, energise and repair. You won’t necessarily get the type of reaction you might expect from a strong cup of coffee or a sleeping tablet administered by your GP.
CBD is not a miracle cure and works best when you include it as part of your daily routine.
Our products are best used as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle to maximise their effectiveness. Getting enough sleep, exercise and good nutrition are all key factors in helping you to reach any goals you’ve set and achieve your potential in every aspect of your life.
At Heed Life, our vision is simply… “helping people live better.”
Consistency is key when using CBD products. As we’ve touched on earlier, topping up our ECS and then maintaining levels is the best way to get the most from your CBD journey. By adopting a less is more outlook, we can concentrate on finding what works best for our individual needs, as opposed to overloading our system.
The beauty of CBD is that it works in harmony with our body, helping to achieve that all-important state of balance. So, it’s important to listen to your body and adjust accordingly for you.
It’s perfectly safe to drive having used our CBD products because of the removal of the psychoactive compound (THC) responsible for creating a ‘high’ during the manufacturing process.
Typically, CBD products are not like alcohol, whereby you’d be intoxicated and unable to drive or operate machinery. There has been lots of feedback to suggest that CBD can help reduce the stresses associated with a long drive in traffic, that all-important work meeting or any other scenario that might cause some level of anxiety.
All of our products are third-party batch tested to ensure that they’re perfectly safe to use. We even include the certificates of analysis on our site to provide you with full clarity of what they contain and give you that peace of mind before use.
At this stage, you might be ready to embark on your CBD journey and perhaps you’re wondering what products are right for you. Maybe what you’ve read so far has interested you and you want some more information?
At Heed Life, we’re passionate about health and wellbeing. One of our key aims is to provide people with the education and confidence they need to make the best choice to suit their individual needs.
We understand it can be daunting deciding whether to take the plunge with a new product and that’s why we’ve created a content archive to help with this process. If you’re ready to make a purchase, we’ve designed a quiz that will help us recommend exactly which product will be a great match for you.//= get_template_directory_uri() . '/images/image 41.png' ?>
