CBD Treatment Forms and Time to Action



For those already familiar with the therapeutic promise of cannabinoid-based treatments as a solution for various health conditions, then you already know about the wide range of ailments that can be positively impacted by this wondrous family of compounds.

The main substance we are interested in here is Cannabidiol (CBD), which is the principal component in CBD Oil. Many folks are more familiar with THC. However, CBD does not get you high. It has no serious psychoactive effects at all, which is why it is so important as a therapeutic compound given that CBD also causes important changes in the body’s physiology that are now understood to have significant benefits of a medical nature.

Medicinal CBD is generally derived from raw cannabis plant flower matter. When dried out, we find that the CBD concentration in most hemp plant flower matter is around 1.2%. That means, if you start with about 100 grams of dried hemp flower matter, you can extract around 1.2 grams of CBD.

But, with some selective breeding, strains have been developed that can produce nearly twice that much. However, plants that have been cultivated strictly for the THC high – recreational pot – the CBD level is often quite a bit smaller.

However, one common question that often arises from those wishing to take advantage of this therapeutic force is about how long it takes to be effective.

Time to Action for CBD

The question of how long it takes to receive “felt” benefits of CBD is more complicated than it might appear on the surface.

First off, different conditions are impacted in different ways. Some conditions take longer to impact with any treatment. Secondly, the method of “delivery” of the CBD is also a major factor in how long it takes to be effective. Finally, the concentration or dosage plays a role in time to action.

For the reader, the most important of these issues will likely be delivery method. So, we will concentrate our discussion on this line first. The four principal methods of CBD delivery are topical application, ingestion of edible CBD through oral intake, sublingual absorption, and vaping.

We will briefly look at each with a focus on speed of action.

Topical Application. Many administer CBD treatment through a topically applied cream or gel. We typically see this type of application method used in the treatment of muscle or joint pain, or for skin problems such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis, with the balm spread onto the affected area and massaged into the dermis.

But this is also the slowest-acting method of application, taking over an hour before its impact is clearly perceivable to the user. But its effects should be potent for nearly 6 hours once it kicks into gear.

Edibles. One of the most popular methods of application is simply eating the CBD Oil in some form.

However, digestion is the real route into the bloodstream in this case, and that takes time – typically anywhere from 45 minutes to over an hour.

And even this estimate is highly variable, depending on when the subject has last consumed some other digestible substance, and how durable during digestion that substance is. This is exactly why those undertaking this form of application are generally encouraged to do so on an “empty stomach”.

Here’s how it works: one consumes CBD Capsules, or CBD-infused edible items such as candies or gummies. It can also be mixed into any form of beverage. It should remain effective for somewhere between 240 to 360 minutes.

Sublingual Absorption. Placing an absorbable CBD substance under the tongue constitutes the second fastest option for delivery of a CBD-based treatment. Effects can be experienced in just a few minutes through this method.

For most people, this is the chosen way to administer CBD oil. It is placed under the tongue and held there for a short period before the saliva mix is swallowed. It can be consumed either in drop or spray form. It should be felt as in effect roughly 30 minutes after administration and should last roughly 5 hours in an effective capacity.

Vaping. This is clearly the fastest acting method of delivery. The route into the system is through the lungs, which is the fastest way into the bloodstream short of injection into a vein or artery. Effects can be experienced almost instantaneously with this method.

The mode of delivery will include the Vape Pen or Vaporizer. A CBD Vape Oil will be needed. In addition, the effect of CBD using this method lasts for multiple hours.

How Should CBD Users Determine Proper Dosage?

If you want a one-size-fits-all answer to this question, you’ve come to the wrong place. And if you go somewhere else and find it, it’s bogus. That type of answer simply doesn’t exist. Why?

The simple answer is this: It depends on what you’re using it for.

Our advice? Start small and work your way up. Much of this process is trial and error, but the user should slope the process away from high doses.

That said, we have found that most people end up homing in on a dosage level that is a bit above what the packaging indicates.

In short, you want to start at the small end of the spectrum and gradually amp it higher until you find the desired result. But we have never come across any reports of serious problems arising from too much. Even 750 mg over a 12-hour period has been found to be just fine.

Refining the Process

There are other factors that contribute to the recipe that determines length of time after administration of CBD Oil dosage until desired effects can be perceived.

We recommend all users to let their licensed physician know that they plan on starting a CBD Oil regimen before actual treatment has begun.

While amount of dosage, condition being treated, and method of delivery are all highly important in determining time before its active in the system, it also depends on you. Everyone is different. Some people experience effects much quicker, and others experience them slower. It is a process of personal experimentation in terms of refining usage.

However, as noted, we advise an err-on-the-downside approach in the initial stages of that process of experimentation. Once you establish that baseline, you can work your way up methodically until you reach that sweet spot and get it just right.

It should also be noted that CBD is a totally natural treatment option, which means it will not have any of the harmful side effects associated with many chemical compounds on the market today.

If you want to use it in its most concentrated form, we recommend CBD Oil Concentrates, such as CBD Oil created through a process of supercritical CO2 extraction at a professional extraction and processing facility.

Demand for such concentrated forms of CBD is growing fast, which has incentivized the development of a supply infrastructure that has driven the price lower and expanded the available supply and quality dramatically.

CBD: How it Works

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a physiological system in the human body.

Think of it as a system of keys and locks. The keys are called “agonists”. The locks are called “receptors”. The agonists unlock the receptors, but they also deliver instructions when they do.  In the ECS, the receptors involved are called CB1 and CB2. And the agonists are endocannabinoids (which just means “internal cannabinoid”).

CB1 receptors are pervasive in the body but highly concentrated in the brain. Those in the cortex are generally designed to impact motor functions, pain sensitivity, emotional stability, cognitive functionality, appetite, parietal functions like memory, as well as other brain-related issues. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is known to attach to CB1.

CB2 receptors are more readily linked to the immune system and deal more in pain and inflammation. This receptor is acted on by endocannabinoids produced internally by the body.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phyto-cannabinoid that can be introduced into this complex system. We believe, according to current research, that when CBD is introduced, it has the effect of essentially inspiring the body to use more of its own endocannabinoids. It’s somewhat analogous to how methamphetamine works to stimulate more dopamine in the brain.
