How long does it take for CBD to work?

November 24, 2018

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 100 cannabinoids, or organic chemical compounds, found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the most prominent cannabinoid in marijuana, CBD has no psychoactive properties.

CBD is most commonly sourced from industrial hemp (although it can be extracted in lower concentrations from marijuana). Hemp-derived CBD contains less than 0.3 percent THC and does not make a consumer feel “high.”

How does CBD affect the body?

CBD binds with receptors in the endocannabinoid system, within the brain and nervous system, which plays an important role in regulating physiological and cognitive processes. Many consumers claim that taking CBD helps reduce pain, fight inflammation, curb anxiety and treat a variety of other ailments.

More research is required in order to determine exactly which conditions CBD may be an effective treatment for, but in December 2017 the World Health Organization determined that CBD has no abuse or dependency potential. In June of this year, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first CBD-based drug.

How long does it take for CBD to work?

It typically takes about 30 minutes for CBD consumers to feel a reduction in symptoms, regardless of whether it’s used for anxiety, pain management or something else. Results depend on dosage, purpose and personal considerations. Consulting a professional to determine the best approach is always recommended.
