So, You've Tried Cbd, But It Didn't Do Anything?


So, is CBD a scam? What is all the hype about it? I tried it, but nothing happened! So, why didn’t it work for me? You are not alone. The whole industry is not a scam, but unfortunately, there are products out there. Here are some reasons to consider why it may not be working.

First, let’s define CBD. CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is the non-psychoactive part of the cannabis plant. Today, many people use CBD to relieve chronic pain, muscle aches, inflammation, sleep disorders, anxiety, seizures, headaches, acne and other skin disorders, and many other ailments. And since CBD WildLeaf products contain zero THC, it relieves without the “high.” Many research projects are currently underway to investigate the medical benefits. See the pie chart below. 

So, you have tried a CBD product, and you didn’t get the relief you were expecting. Let’s look into some legitimate reasons why it didn’t work for you. The first and probably the most prevalent is from an unreputable source. Most products contain zero percent CBD and less than what is posted on the label. Such Hemp products sold on Amazon contain zero percent CBD as Amazon does not allow CBD products to be sold. Unfortunately, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not standardized the industry.

The lack of standards has led several companies to take full advantage of it. One study found that only 25% of the products out there have the amount of CBD on the label or more. So, accurate labeling is a significant problem. It would be best to look for third-party testing for pesticides, heavy metals, microbial, and THC content. Also, a third-party test should be performed after each batch to test for the exact amount of CBD in the actual product you are buying. So, if these third-party tests are not available, don’t buy the product as it most likely will not contain the amount of CBD you are buying. CBD Wild Leaf is proud to give you all tests regarding our products. We are now posting third-party testing in our QR codes on our new products. Shown below are the third-party tests for our new Acne Relief product.

A second reason why CBD didn’t work for you is the dosage. It is difficult and tricky to find the correct dosage for you. Everyone’s body’s chemistry is different, so the appropriate amount for you will differ. CBD Wild Leaf suggests you start low and slowly build up until you reach your desired relief. Also, some people build up a tolerance and find over time, and you may need more, but before doing that, take a break for a couple of days and then start back up. don't get scammed

A third reason is the length of time using the product! Your expectations need to be realistic. Depending on the symptoms, immediate results may not be possible. One example is instant results for growing chronic pain are not a reasonable expectation. The relief may take a couple of weeks to months for some people to get to the desired results. It takes commitment and patience, so don’t give up! If you are struggling, keep a log of your progress and don’t give up. 

A fourth reason is your delivery system. There are so many ways to take CBD from tinctures, gummies, capsules, edibles, vaping, bath salts, and lotions, to name a few. Every day there are new forms out there. Each one of these methods is absorbed in your body differently. Some methods are slow to get into your system, and some are fast. The fastest way is vaping, but it is the quickest to leave your body. Gummies and other edibles must flow through your digestive system. Ingesting takes the CBD longer to enter the body, plus a lower percentage of the CBD makes it into your system. Use the correct form for the symptoms you are trying to relieve. Topicals are good for muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, and skin issues. Tinctures and edibles are good for anxiety, inflammation, sleep, and similar internal symptoms

The fifth is that CBD may not be for you. Some people produce enough endocannabinoids that they don’t need CBD. It is estimated that this might apply to about 20% of North America. Absorption and reaction could be due to genetics and biochemistry.
