It’s important to know that not all CBD products will make you feel the same. There are several factors that can influence a product and its ultimate effects on your body. One major factor is whether or not any additional cannabinoids, terpenes, or phytochemicals from the cannabis plant are included in your CBD oil. After all, the cannabis plant contains over 100 different cannabinoids, as well as other naturally occurring substances, many of which carry their own unique benefits.
This may seem obvious, yet many people overlook the impact of a slight change in dosage. If you aren’t noticing any benefit or change from your CBD consumption, then you may consider increasing your dosage. And keep in mind: a person with a high body fat percentage will unavoidably need to take more CBD than a person with a lower percentage of body fat, simply because of how your body digests and processes new supplements.
The Difference Between Full-Spectrum and CBD Isolate
Of course, when you alleviate painful symptoms, this makes it easier for your natural appetite to return. Now, you may not notice a difference in your appetite if you do not suffer from GI or appetite issues, but those who do will likely appreciate how CBD makes them feel.
Plus, you can enjoy CBD in many different forms. Some people apply CBD topically to sore muscles to enjoy targeted pain relief. Others, especially those living with daily pain, may prefer to ingest CBD so it can interact with your endocannabinoid system, producing effects throughout your entire body.
But how does all of this make you feel different? With a CBD isolate, you will notice a smaller change in how you feel, since the CBD is working all alone. However, with a full-spectrum CBD, you will notice a more significant change in how you feel.
Taking CBD oil has been studied to have pain-relieving, inflammatory-fighting, and anxiety-reducing prowess, so ingesting it on the reg seems as though it might not be the worst idea in the world. “A daily dose of CBD will rebalance imbalances within the body and, depending on the specific individual, the benefits manifest themselves differently,” explains Emily Heitman, co-founder, COO and CMO of Leef Organics. “As a regulator and a modulator, CBD acts in a dynamic and comprehensive fashion to get to the root of individual issues. I believe it should be part of everyone’s daily routine for maintenance and preventative support.”

1. I slept better
Now, obviously, everyone is different, and it’s important to remember that you should check with your doctor before introducing something new into your regimen. But given its cred, I was ready to give it a go. Here’s what happened when I did.
I’ve used CBD oil topically to relieve sore running legs, but didn’t realize that ingesting the wellness ingredient can have a similar effect. Studies have shown, though, that taking CBD has anti-inflammatory benefits, and muscle pain is a sort of inflammation, so I’ve found it to help. As someone who works out almost daily, my legs are almost always sore. I traded my CBD topical oil for the kind you ingest, and still felt a very subtle perk of muscle pain relief. The CBD oil helps my body repair itself in recovery mode, fighting that newfound inflammation from my hardcore workouts and allowing me to do it again the next day without feeling like my legs are made out of cement.
I hate to admit this, but I’m a very stress-prone person. I’ve gotta hit several deadlines each day, survive a number of meetings, and juggle a work life, a romantic relationship, and very dear friendships (in other words: I’m like every other person). In the past, though, I’ve let all of this pressure get to me, and could almost feel coritsol surging in my body. However, I found that taking CBD oil regularly has eased this stress (something it’s scientifically proven to do), and I’m able to get through my day without feeling as though the completion of my to-do list is set to the tune of major stress.
