Optimize Your CBD Experience
At River Organics, we want to help make the most of the holistic supplement so we’re here to help you form a deeper understanding of CBD while you enjoy the benefits from our USDA Certified Organic CBD.
You may be wondering about the journey CBD takes when it enters your system. Taking the time to understand the ins and outs of any holistic supplement you take is vital.
While CBD becomes an integral part of your routine, it’s important to recognize how it’s performing in your system and the steps to take to ensure it works at its optimal levels.
Today we will take a closer look at some of the most vital things you need to know to maximize your use of CBD. We will explore how CBD activates in the body, address how to properly store CBD, investigate how long it stays in the system and uncover why it is so crucial to know exactly which ingredients are in your CBD product.
Understanding CBD in the Body
No CBD user is the same. Your metabolism and body mass index will also help you understand how long your dosage will last. CBD is stored in our fat cells, so those who have a lower density of fat cells will tend to see the effects subside faster. Those who metabolize quicker may also notice CBD’s effects dissipating more quickly. Younger people have a faster metabolism than most adults, so CBD may not last as long in someone young as someone older in age.
The type of CBD you use will directly affect how long it lasts in your system. When CBD tinctures are ingested sublingually, they directly enter your bloodstream, working quickly and lasting about six hours— with the potential to remain in the system for days following. If used regularly, CBD accumulates in your body over time. This is why it’s recommended you take it daily for at least a week to see if it has the desired effect. If you only use it occasionally, it’ll clear your system faster, and results may be inconsistent.
When using CBD massage oil or topical creams, the cannabinoids penetrate into the skin, also lasting about 4 to 6 hours in our systems. Whichever you choose, both CBD tinctures and massage oils and topicals offer an array of benefits to enhance your health and wellness.
A more seasoned CBD consumer will notice that, with more usage and a higher dosage, comes a longer lasting effect. When you use CBD more often, it grows familiar with your system and wants to stay awhile.
Is It Safe to Take CBD daily?
CBD is indicated to positively enhance health and wellbeing. CBD helps to alleviate anxiety, muscle soreness, surface and internal pain and reduce inflammation amongst a host of other health benefits. You can't overdose on CBD, and it is lipophilic (or fat soluble), which means it builds in your body over time, adding to potential health benefits. CBD is tolerated very well by the body and our USDA Certified Organic CBD tinctures and wellness products ensure you are receiving the highest quality CBD available.
How Long Does CBD Stay in the System?
Metabolizing CBD varies from person to person and it depends on a variety of factors: specific body type, the dosage, frequency, and the manner – sublingually, orally, or topically all impact the holistic impact of CBD on our bodies. What you eat, how much you eat, and when you eat all matter. If you take CBD on an empty stomach, it gets metabolized and eliminated faster than it does when you take it on a full stomach, which slows its digestion. By and large, the consensus is that the immediate effects of CBD last between two to six hours.
How Do You Properly Store CBD?
Research shows excess light could diminish the effects of cannabinoids. Maintain the integrity of your CBD by storing it at room temperature and away from any light source – in a cabinet, or in your gym bag, somewhere it is insulated from light or extreme temperatures.
At River Organics, from seed to bottle, we ensure your CBD is grown, manufactured, and preserved. The way both you and the manufacturer store the CBD product will determine how long it lasts. When choosing a CBD massage oil or CBD tincture, an amber or blue glass bottle will protect the formula in the airtight, dark environment that it needs. Knowing how to properly store your CBD products will help you make the most of them.
The longer your CBD lasts on the shelf, the greater the chance for it to remain at its most potent.
What’s in a CBD Bottle?
Knowing the ingredients in your CBD formula is critical to choosing an effective product. Quality ingredients will provide a more impactful, holistic experience. CBD massage oil may contain essential oils, which are indicated to provide a longer shelf life as they contain natural antibacterial and antifungal properties – read the ingredients, and look for USDA Certified Organic on the label.
CBD Quality and You
