Should I take CBD daily and why?
We get asked this question a lot so we thought we would share the reasons why it is a good idea to take it daily:
1) Food supplements take time to build up in the system
CBD has been classified as a food supplement in the UK, as such no reputable CBD brand should make any health claims in relation to their product range (even though most do!) However the same bioavailability (how it reaches your blood stream) rules apply!
We always recommend that you take CBD for a minimum of two weeks but ideally take the whole product over a month. This is for two reasons;
a) Whether you're taking vitamin D, Cold liver oil or CBD it takes time to build up in your system and this rate is different for each individual, so in order to ensure you 'give it a good go' take it consistently over two weeks.
b) Every individual has a different absorption rate depending on the product they are using and their own physiology so again what might have worked for your friend in just two days might not impact on you for to weeks.
2) Reach Homeostasis - the bodies natural balance!
A daily dose can help maintain sustained levels in your system and promote a more effective Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a biological system that has shown to help control sleep, mood, inflammation, and overall homeostasis (a body's state of balance). So it's important to keep it in top condition!
3) You can't overdose on it! But take it easy....
Not only can you, but for the best effects, in most cases you actually should take CBD on a daily basis. You can't overdose on CBD, and it's lipophilic (or fat soluble), which means it compounds in your body over time, adding to potential health benefits. However we always recommend starting gradually with the dose and building up to see what your body needs - less is more when you first start taking CBD and everyone responds differently. The last thing you want is to take more than you need as that is a waste of your hard earned money!
