Adding CBD to a wellness routine can look different from person to person. Still, consistency with CBD is key to success, regardless of the specifics. Whether you use CBD tinctures, softgels, topicals, or edibles, you will have better results if you take it consistently.
We’ve previously talked about reasons why CBD may not be working for you and how you can improve your results. One of our top suggestions is to remain consistent. Not everyone experiences immediate results from using CBD. Instead, your body may need time for cannabidiol (CBD) to build up before it can provide therapeutic effects.
The endocannabinoid system and long term CBD use
You may have heard about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) through our CBD consultations, blogs, or from your own research. Understanding the ECS is crucial for learning about CBD and how it works with the body.
While the system is large and complex, we’ll break it down for you in basic terms: The ECS is a cell-signaling system that is present throughout the body. It is responsible for maintaining various physiological, emotional, and cognitive processes. The main function is to keep the body at homeostasis by modulating the central nervous system’s functions.
CBD is so beneficial for the body because it interacts with the endocannabinoid system in unique ways. Our bodies have endocannabinoid receptors that modulate various biological functions. CBD doesn’t bind directly with these receptors, but rather influences them indirectly, possibly by preventing the breakdown of naturally-occurring cannabinoids in the body.
As CBD experts here at Thryv Organics, we know one thing for sure: consistency with CBD is key to success. It’s the best way to see noticeable, long-term results.
Why consistency with CBD works best
Considering the way CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, you can see why consistency is so important. The effects are cumulative and can increase over time. It’s why we recommend users stick to a routine.
The endocannabinoid system has so many jobs. It may take more time for certain systems to regulate and find balance with CBD supplementation. You may see some positive results in some areas at first, but need a longer time for the rest of your body to even out.
Additionally, consistency with CBD use can help you build up a supply in your system. Depending on your dosage, metabolism, biology, and other factors, your body may break down CBD quickly. If you build it up over time, you will have a healthy supply and more consistent results.
We like to frame it in the context of vitamins and supplements. Most products need to build up in the system for a bit before you notice results. For example, you wouldn’t expect to suddenly feel a boost of energy if you have low iron and take an iron supplement one time. Instead, take it daily until it builds up in the body and you will feel noticeable results.
The same goes for CBD. The more consistently you take it, the better your results will be.
