How long does hemp oil take to work?
Asked 3 years ago
I started taking the tincture for sleep improvement, but it clearly doesn't work immediately. How long do I have to be taking this for it to have an effect?

The amount of time it takes for you to begin to feel the effect of a CBD product depends on several reasons. Generally, it doesn't take too long before you begin to feel the effect of CBD products taking as tinctures. However, several other factors can affect the rate of metabolism of CBD products. These factors include your body makeup, dosage, food, method of use etc.
1. Dosage: The amount of CBD you take matters a lot. CBD oils are measured in milligrammes. A person who takes a higher amount of CBD product will feel the effect faster than a person who takes a lower amount. Please note that this doesn't mean you should always take a very high amount of CBD. Please be careful with your dosage to avoid complication. If you're taking CBD for the first time, start slowly, then gradually increase it till you get your required result.
2. Body make up: Your body make up is different entirely from the makeup of the person next to you. Body make up may depend on a lot of factors like BMI, body water, bodyweight etc. Metabolism is another factor. Your body may not be able to metabolise the drug as fast as the body of the next person.
3. Food: This depends on if you've eaten or not. If your stomach is empty when you take a CBD product, it will be easier for your body to digest the drug than when you've eaten.
4. Method of use: vaping and sublingual methods tend to be faster than topical and edible methods. When you vape CBD oil, it enters the lungs and begins action almost immediately, when it is taken as oils and tinctures, it enters the bloodstream and is absorbed almost immediately. Applying CBD as a lotion might take some time before it is absorbed while edibles take a longer time before they are digested.
Generally, it takes around 15 minutes to begin to feel the effect of CBD when you vape or take products through your mouth. Lotions applied topically can take up to one hour. If you experience a very slow response, maybe you should consider other factors instead of changing your method of use.
