We all have been beginners at some point, and when it comes to CBD it easy to say that we all have made at least one of these mistakes while starting our CBD journey.
Not choosing a good quality oil
CBD is extracted from hemp. The hemp quality can vary, and it is never the same. Some hemp qualities are substandard as they are bio-accumulators. They can extract toxins from the soil, which can then make their way into your tincture. These can be harmful to the body, and the best way to get a good quality, organic hemp product is to buy one that is grown and processed with the highest standards of quality. A good quality CBD oil not only comes from a quality harvest, but the extraction method is also very important to determine the final quality of the oil: Cheap extraction using ethanol solvent is a craft method that is still used by many oil companies.
A lot of CBD to start with
Follow the instructions on the bottle and start with it. The typical instruction on the bottle is 20 drops at the very beginning twice each day. For many people, even this can be a lot of CBD if they’re starting out. In these cases, symptoms like joint pains, fever and body aches can pop up.
Too little CBD to start with
Just as mentioned before, different people have different intake mechanisms and absorbing capabilities, this means that you can have the opposite problem: You could take too little CBD, not enough for your purposes. CBD is not addictive, and there is no potential for abuse. While some can see the results almost immediately after taking the dose, some bodies take time to absorb it all. You can increase the 20 drops quickly by a drop or two.
Do not quit CBD suddenly!
When our bodies start being accustomed to a particular substance, it can be harmful if that substance is suddenly stopped. Quitting CBD just because you do not see the results is not the solution. Some people get the results very soon; for others, it requires some time to achieve good results.
Not consulting physician
Taking in and regulating the dosage on your own can be harmful. Your body may need a certain amount of CBD, and you may be providing it with the wrong amount, more or less than it needs. Again, if you do not see the result, start increasing the dose, or vice versa – this can confuse your body. It is better to consult your GP or a CBD coach before taking things in your own hands. Let them guide you for the better.
Opting to buy the cheapest oil
This can lead to a harmful and even fake product. Tending to go for the most inexpensive oil will leave you with dangerous conditions.
Scientists have found many of its useful aspects, and it has been made legal in many countries around the world (including UK).
