How Long Does It Take CBD to Work?

CBD or cannabidiol is all the rage throughout many communities. People from all walks of life are interested in finding out more about its health benefits and how it may be able to help themselves and the people they love. Full spectrum hemp extract, like Palmetto Harmony, has less than .3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (thc) and has no psychotropic effects. The non-intoxicating cannabis extract is being credited with helping treat a host of medical problems; everything from epileptic seizures, supporting healthy inflammatory responses and sleeplessness.  These potential benefits and the time to feel the positive effects, vary from individual and there is no “one size fits all” answer. There are several factors to take into consideration when estimating the timing an individual will get noticeable results.

Product Specifications and Quality

The overall consensus from experts and individuals that have been using cannabidiol products, is that the full spectrum products like Palmetto Harmony, produce the most beneficial results. This is due to the fact that there are over 100 cannabinoids in the flower of the plant, many of which may be what your body needs. They work synergistically with the terpenes and flavonoids to produce an entourage effect. This results when the many compounds within the cannabis plant interact within the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of those components alone. It is also the most natural approach to extracting the cannabinoids from the buds. On the other hand, isolated CBD products may often have a higher amount of cannabidiol, but without the natural balance with the other cannabinoids. This is because they are forcefully separated from them in a laboratory setting.

Delivery Method

There are several different ways to take CBD. Each application style will require a different amount of time before the results are noticed. Vaping or smoking the cannabidiol, produces the effects much more quickly than other delivery methods. Palmetto Harmony Aura consumers, oftentimes state that they feel the effects almost immediately. Rectal suppository is another method that works quickly and has been known to be used as a rescue for seizures because the cannabidiol and other cannabinoids are absorbed quickly through the blood – brain barrier. It can then be distributed throughout the Endocannabinoid System once in the bloodstream. The cannabinoids are able to bond with the receptors in our body. The interaction between these receptors is the catalyst behind the many benefits of CBD.

Other methods such as ingesting the oil or using topicals or patches also work well but are not as immediate. The ingested oils, although it may take longer to feel the full effect, tend to last longer because the cannabinoids build up in the fat cells. Most people place the oil under their tongues (sublingual) to absorb into the bloodstream, but it may take up to two weeks to feel the full effect.  If the route is via the digestive system, it takes longer to reach the bloodstream.

Dosing

Palmetto Harmony has been known to support healthy inflammatory responses and neuron activity; however, it is not like typical synthetic drugs in that you feel its effects immediately. It may take several weeks to achieve relief while the cannabidiol builds up in the body’s fat cells and tissues. When using Palmetto Harmony, our customers have found several methods that work well with our product. First rule of thumb: LESS IS MORE. Whatever product you have used before or whatever you have read, it does not apply to Palmetto Harmony. Each change in dose can prolong an individual’s ability to find that person’s optimal dose. Keep in mind some people do see changes immediately, but for most this is a process. We also suggest to make only one change every three weeks. It is the THREE WEEKS TO STEADY rule!

Together, with your doctor please, adjust any medications prior to starting the oil. During the first phase of Palmetto Harmony treatment,
this helps to eliminate any changes being made. It is very important to have no other variables when starting the oil and in determining the individual’s best dose. Your therapeutic range will be very individualized and depend on how your body processes the oil. We have adults that take 1ml a day with great success and children who take 4ml a day with great success.

Individual Unique Endocannabinoid System

The amount of time it takes cannabidiol to work varies. It varies not only from individual to individual, but from day to day. Every single person is unique and does not consistently metabolize in the same way. The external environment, moods, other foods that are eaten, physical exercise and other personal habits all play a role. Each person’s body differs greatly from each other. Each person’s body composition can also change at any given point. Our body’s internal cannabinoids (naturally produced) also vary affecting how much supplementation may be required. Many individuals have an endocannabinoid deficiency. The cannabidiol can act in mimicking the body’s natural ones increasing overall homeostasis.
