Purchasing CBD is an investment that you’re going to benefit from. However, you might have felt like you went through your CBD fast. It’s ok, we’ve all been there before. There is a way to get the most out of your CBD; we’d like to share some tips with you on how to make your CBD last longer.
Make Your CBD Last Longer
If you’ve ever smoked weed you know that the more you take, the more stoned you feel. However, this is not the case for CBD! You don’t need to hotbox, take it to the head, or anything like that to feel it’s effects. On the contrary, you’ll want to stop taking CBD once you’ve reached your desired effect.
The thing about CBD is that a little goes a long way. Once you’ve figured out what the right dosage is for you, continue to take that amount until you feel you need more. Products like Marijuana or Delta 8 THC tend to make you feel high almost immediately. But CBD has more mild effects that won't produce a high; therefore, figuring out how much you personally can enjoy is key.
The type of product that you take is also important along with how often you take it. Certain products like the CBD Tinctures might last you a little longer than a CBD Disposable. On the contrary, a CBD Tincture might not last as long if you’re taking 3.0ml a day (3 full droppers); or a CBD Disposable might last longer than a CBD Tincture if you only take 5 puffs a day.
Another factor to consider is how your body absorbs CBD. When your body absorbs CBD it gets stored in your body fat. The less body fat you have the faster your body can process the CBD. Also, the more body fat you have the slower your body will process the CBD. If you don’t feel the CBD immediately then you may need to wait a little longer before you decide to take more.
When you compare a CBD Tincture to a CBD Disposable, you’ll discover that you’ll feel the CBD a lot faster when vaped. This is due to your body having to bypass your digestive system, body fat, etc. A CBD Vape product goes straight into your system, through your lungs within 15 minutes.
This is not the case when it comes to a CBD Tincture. The CBD will have to wait for your body to fully absorb it before you feel its effects. This can take 40 minutes to 1 hour and ½. However, you’re able to choose from 3 different strengths which include 1,000mg, 1,500mg, and 2,000mg. One important thing to keep in mind, the higher the strength, the less CBD you’ll need.
Method of CBD Use
In order to make your CBD last you’ll want to keep in mind the method of use. In the case of CBD Topicals, you only need to apply small amounts at a time. This is because you’re applying a highly concentrated amount of CBD onto your skin. Therefore, you don’t need to lather your entire body with CBD, only the areas you want the CBD to be absorbed to.
The same goes for vaping your CBD. There is no need to have a long vaping session and go through an entire CBD Cartridge. You will only need to take 2 - 3 puffs of your cart, and wait for the effects to kick in. If you feel that you need more after 15 minutes then take another 2 - 3 puffs.
Does CBD Have An Expiration Date?
Our products don’t come with an official expiration date. However, the longer you let your CBD sit the less potent it will become. Buying in bulk is always a good idea as long as you don’t let it sit for more than a year.
If you’ve had some CBD laying around for more than a month then it should be fine. Even if it’s been sitting around for 6 months your CBD should still be good. If you’ve held on to your CBD for more than a year then it might not be as potent compared to when you first got it. Also, it depends on how you’ve stored your CBD.
Buying CBD in bulk is a great way to ensure you’re getting the most out of CBD. You’re not waiting around for more CBD to arrive, all the while your body is becoming accustomed to CBD. However, you’ll want to make sure you’re storing your CBD properly in order to ensure it stays fresh, and potent longer.
CBD should be stored at room temperature. Any extreme temperature, both hot or cold will result in not so ideal CBD quality. This is not to say that you still won't be able to enjoy it, but it will take some creativity to either unfreeze or make your products solid again.
For example, our CBD Gummies can melt in extreme heat. The same goes for our CBD Lotion and Balm. You will have to bring the products back to a solid state in order to enjoy. CBD loses its potency at 350° so be sure not to throw your CBD in the oven at high temperatures.
When you purchase any type of CBD you will want to keep it out of direct sunlight. This means you want to store your CBD somewhere dark like a cabinet or closet. Not only can it dry out the product, but it can cause the CBD to lose its potency.
The best way to make your CBD last longer is by considering how CBD affects you personally. You might be taking too much, and decreasing the amount of CBD that you’re intaking can have the same effect. However, to really get the most out of your CBD you’ll want to ensure that you’re properly storing it. This will cause the CBD to stay potent longer and you won’t need as much to get the desired effects.
