When CBD Doesn’t Work

So, you’ve purchased a CBD product but don’t feel like it’s working and find yourself questioning what all the hype is about.  As we all know CBD seems to be everywhere, from ice creams, soaps, bath bombs and even burgers. That’s right, burgers. After having a negative experience with CBD, we can understand why you’d question if CBD is a fad or if it does deserve all the publicity.

Here at YourHemp we want to help you out when questioning if you should give up on CBD or not. We’ve put together a few reasons why to question it’s not working for you, so you don’t question the industry as a whole.


Did you purchase for a reliable source?

Currently the CBD industry is unregulated. Unfortunately, this means sellers have taken advantage of this by selling low quality products which are untested. Many products are claiming very different to the results when tested, some have contained no CBD.

  • Third Party Testing – Always purchase from a CBD seller with third party testing that’s transparent on their website. This will tell you exactly what is in each product.
  • Cannabis Trade Association UK Member – Their focus is to promote good practice, provide practical advice and ensuring consumers of legal cannabis and hemp products have access to information provided first hand from the government. Working closely with the MHRA and FSA this is the UK’s go to company for any government changes regarding CBD.
  • Customer Reviews – Does their website have a third-party review platform with positive reviews. The best feedback is from customers who’ve experienced their CBD.


Have you tried a different form?

With many forms of CBD out there and a new product being launched all the time, it’s hard to get your head around what is the best way to take it.

The most popular ways of consuming CBD is:

  • Tinctures (Pipette)
  • Capsules
  • Creams
  • E-Liquids
  • Gummies or Chocolate

The best form to take CBD is via the Tinctures or drops under the tongue. This is because of the bio availability of the CBD reaching the blood stream.

Depending on why you’re waiting to take CBD could depend on what form would best. For example; if you’re looking to take this for what our customers have mentioned on our TrustPilot reviews with regards to anxiety or a sleeping aid then the tinctures will be the most effective, where as if you’re looking to target a certain area of the body as mentioned again by our customers for pain relief or eczema then a CBD cream would be more beneficial.



Patience and Consistency are key

With a need for more research and testing around CBD, people within the industry are still refining the best practice for dosage and taking.

The human body is a complex system, each user will have a different sensitivity to CBD. The standard practice for starting your CBD journey is to start with 20mg a day. From this you can experiment with what works for you, meaning you may need to add more drops or less. This will then give you an understanding of how much you need per dosage and how long each bottle will last.

Once you find your dosage It requires a commitment and regular schedule to discover the long-term effects this may have on your health and well-being as your body may need to build this up in your system to stimulate and interact with your endocannabinoid system.

Many CBD users have taken minutes, to several days to even months before noticing the health benefits. Don’t give up on your CBD if you’ve found a reliable source. As frustrating as it may seem, you will be relieved once you see the results over a longer period.

Don’t give up, do your research and be patient.

CBD is not as simple as trying a few drops over a couple of days and expecting immediate results. Take time to research the right brand, dosage, form and why you’re using CBD.

Always remember that just like any other supplements at your go to health store, just because you don’t feel the immediate effects doesn’t mean this isn’t working.
