CBD Doesn’t Seem To Work For You? Here’s Probably Why

CBD Doesn’t Seem To Work For You? Here’s Probably Why

Posted by Steve Litteer, Founder & CEO of 4Fathers Organics, LLC on Sep 18th 2021

You’ve bought new CBD products with all the excitement in the world with the hope to address a number of issues. For some, it’s easy to get positive results right after its use, and for others, that might not be the case. If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably among the latter. Well, to save you from the confusion, we confirm that this can sometimes happen, and there are several reasons why incorporating Green Apple Gummies in your daily routine might not have worked as expected. In this blog we will explore some of the most common reasons why CBD might not be working for you.

Making Your Objectives Clear & Incorporating CBD into Your Daily Routine:

As is always the case when introducing something new into your body, it is wise to first consult with your primary physician before you consume a CBD product.  It is also important to understand the reason(s) why you want to consume CBD. CBD is not a "fad" or the "next cool thing," it's a remedy.  Therefore, as a starting point, we at 4Fathers Organics recommended that you make a list of the reason(s) why want to use CBD.  Then after you have used your CBD product for a 4-6 week period, you can refer back to your list to see if any of your stated objectives have been met.  CBD is not always a "one and done" type of thing, it sometimes takes time for it to build up in your system before the desired effects are experienced, which is why we suggest you incorporate CBD into your daily routine for a 4-6 week period before you determine whether or not your CBD product was effective.

The quality of CBD doesn’t meet the standards:

Not all CBD is created equal.  It is important to know that poor quality is the most common reasons consumers report a less than satisfactory experience with CBD. Simply, purchasing the cheapest or the 1st CBD product you find is not recommended. Sometimes, certain products have less CBD in them than what’s mentioned on their label. To ensure that you’ve invested in a genuine product, check the certifications on the website you’re buying from. At 4Fathers Organics all our brand products have the ingredients listed on their labels as well as QR codes that give you direct access to their 3rd party lab test reports; reliable and effective. 

Additionally, all of our CBD Tinctures are USDA Certified Organic. The highest quality CBD products on the market are USDA Certified Organic CBD products.

In order to maximize the potential for Green Apple CBD Gummies to be highly effective, you must ensure that there are no unwanted ingredients used in them. Being aware before your purchase is a very important responsibility as a customer. If your products weren’t working properly, chances are their quality wasn’t up to the mark.

Understanding how different types of CBD products work:

Our Green Apple CBD Gummies, are an edible CBD product and have been known to take longer for an effect to be experienced (generally 1-3 hours) as compared to other CBD products such as vapes or CBD oil tinctures. However, the benefit of a CBD edible products is that the experience often lasts much longer (generally 6-8 hours) than any other type of CBD product. Therefore, if you expect to experience an immediate effect immediately after taking a CBD gummy, try not to be disappointed. If a more immediate experience is desired, you might want to go with an inhalable CBD product or CBD oil tincture.

The amount of CBD you take matters - there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach:

Most often, the chances of your CBD product being effective depends not only on having the right type of CBD in hand, but is also dependent on whether you’re consuming the right amount of CBD. The optimal serving of CBD can vary for each person. It is often suggested CBD be taken in small and measurable servings and gradually increased as may be necessary to achieve the desired result. The best practice here is to keep track of your intake every day by journaling it.  Once you find your "sweet spot" stick with that serving size for however long it maintains its effectiveness. Consumer more than you need is both counterproductive and could lead to a negative experience.

Let's recap.  When making the determination of whether CBD is working for you should:

  1. Write down what your expectations are before consuming CBD.
  2. Incorporation CBD into your daily routine for a 4-6 week time period.
  3. Ensure your CBD product is a quality CBD product, with a preference toward USDA Certified Organic CBD products.
  4. Ensure you are using the right type of CBD product.
  5. Ensure you are responsibly consuming the correct amount of CBD and pinpointing the optimal serving size that is right for you.
