CBD is becoming ever more visible and popular, but before you take if for the first time you might be wondering How will I feel after taking CBD oil? Take a look at what our experts have to say.
The first thing to be clear on is that CBD will not give you a ‘high’. This is because although CBD comes from cannabis, CBD products contain very little to none of the THC that is present in cannabis that gives you the high. In order for CBD to be legally sold in the UK it must contain no more than 0.2% of THC – which is insufficient to create a sensation of a ‘high’. Indeed, one of the reasons for CBD’s increasing popularity is that many people find it to be very beneficial without it causing the psychoactive changes associated with cannabis.
So, how does it feel to take CBD then? Most people describe a sense of wellbeing and calm when taking CBD oil, but the effects are individual and perhaps best understood by thinking about the effects of taking paracetamol. When we take paracetamol the effect depends on why you took it and can be generally described as the absence of the symptoms that led you to take it, that might be pain, aches or fever. The same can be said for CBD – read on to find out why….
To understand the effects of CBD we need to know that CBD interacts with our bodies endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system of receptors in our body helps create homeostasis (balance) in the body and influences functions such as memory, appetite, sleep, mood and perception of pain. This is why the effects of CBD oil are different for each individual, it depends on where your body might need more balance, be that reduced anxiety, reduce pain perception, increased focus or calming the mind to reduce insomnia.
By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, CBD oil works with the needs and natural rhythms of your own body rather than imposing a new state no matter what the needs of the body are. If you take CBD oil when trying to study, it might help you stay focused, if you are trying to get to sleep CBD can help calm your mind improving your ability to fall asleep faster, and stay asleep.
To enable you to get the desired effects from taking CBD oil its important that you experiment with your dosages. Start with a low dose and then gradually increase if needed.
