Why Isn’t CBD Oil Working For Me?

If you’ve done any research on cannabidiol (CBD), you’ve probably been barraged with content about its wonders and how it effectively helps everyone who takes it. But the truth is, CBD doesn’t help everyone, and if you’ve used CBD oil products that didn’t work for you, you might be confused.

There are a number of reasons that CBD might not work. Sometimes it’s user error and other times it has to do with the quality of the product or even your DNA. Let’s take a closer look at some of the reasons CBD isn’t working for you.
Side Effects of CBD: CBD does NOT cause euphoria, it won't get you high.

  1. You’re using the wrong dose.

Most of the time, individuals who aren’t feeling the effects of CBD simply aren’t using the correct dose. They might take too much and experience unpleasant side effects as well.

Experts recommend that you use a small dose at first and incrementally work your way up. This allows you to see how your body will tolerate the CBD. Keep in mind, the dose you need can change overtime.

  1. You’re expecting too much from it.

Some users of CBD oil believe that it will transform their worlds. If you’ve ever used medical marijuana before, you might expect the same transformative results. However, CBD is not marijuana, and it can do wonderful things, but that doesn’t mean it will offer all the benefits you imagined.

First, let’s look at what CBD is and how it differs from other cannabis products. Cannabidiol is a product of the hemp plant. It’s refined using various methods, some methods fully removes the THC from the product.

If you use isolate CBD, all the terpenes and vitamins that come from the hemp plant Have been removed as well.

Broad spectrum CBD products leave those goodies in without traces of THC. Full spectrum has less than 0.3 percent THC.

That is tiny amounts of THC and is it enough to make anyone feel intoxicated. For most, that’s not noticeable enough to register in your system. (But can rarely trigger a positive drug test in some people.)

Without THC in your cannabis products, you can’t get high.

Even if you’re fully aware that you’re not going to get high from your CBD dose, you might still be expecting more than the product can give you.

It often takes the edge off symptoms like pain, anxiety, inflammation, skin conditions, and more, but it won’t cure you.

Does CBD Really have health Benefits

  1. You bought your CBD from the wrong company.

There are many fake products on the market. Don’t buy false advertising tricks that claim CBD is the same no matter where you buy it. CBD is in somewhat of a rocky industry, and it’s easy to find a good product from a reputable company if you know what to look for.

However, CBD is not FDA regulated, and shady companies might falsely advertise the contents of their oil.

Always look for CBD that’s been carefully cultivated using fully organic hemp farming methods. It should also be third-party lab tested with published results to show that you’re getting what you pay for.

  1. You gave up too early.

CBD works by influencing the endocannabinoid system in your body. This system is responsible for hormone regulation and helping the body reach homeostasis.

You might feel a difference after using CBD one time because it caused the cannabinoid levels in your blood to spike. However, not everyone feels that, and it’s always more effective when you take it consistently on a regular basis.

Some clinicians believe, CBD needs time to build up in your system before it can be truly effective. With the right dosages and several days, weeks, or even months of using CBD, you are more likely to notice a significant difference in your system. Many medications work this way, and you don’t want to give up on CBD too early.

  1. You might have an undiagnosed medical condition that CBD can’t help.

Perhaps your expectations for CBD aren’t being fulfilled because it’s not the right thing to treat what you have.

CBD can do a lot for helping you relieve symptoms of a problem, but it can’t cure you. If you’re not taking the proper medications or receiving the proper treatments for the illness you’re experiencing, you won’t be get any better.

Additionally, you might be experiencing an unknown illness that’s currently undiagnosed.

Keep in mind these problems can get worse if you don’t have the direction of a doctor and the right medications to take care of it.

  1. Your CBD dose will interact with a prescription medication.

Interactions with CBD are rare. Many CBD users even report feeling no side effects at all when using CBD. However, there a variety of medications that CBD can interact with.

Studies have shown that those who use CBD or other cannabis products can experience interactions if they’re already taking blood thinning drugs, sedatives, anti-seizure medications, chemotherapy drugs, and even a few allergy medications.

There’s has not been enough research on the subject yet. Therefore, you should always consult with a physician who’s familiar with CBD before using it if you’re currently taking a prescription medication.

  1. You’re using the wrong method of consumption.

Many people are surprised to hear, that not everyone can absorb or process edibles and orally consumed cannabinoids.

This is because the digestive system of some people does not absorb CBD well. Others are unable to metabolically process cannabinoids when they consume them orally.

This means, there are many consumers that don’t benefit from cannabis products that are swallowed.

If edibles, like CBD oil or CBD gummies, don’t work for you, consider trying a different method of consumption, like inhalation or sublingual administration.


CBD doesn’t work for everyone for every issue, but it can be helpful for many. It might take a while for CBD to start working and finding the ideal dose takes trial and error. Be certain to only purchase CBD from a high-quality brand that sufficiently tests their products.
