How long for cannabidiol to take effect: metabolism, subjectivity and modalities of intake
This is without a doubt one of the most frequent questions asked by those who decide to take cannabidiol for the first time: when I take CBD, after how much time does it take effect?
Like for any substance we introduce in our organism, also cannabidiol takes effect according to the characteristics of the individual and to the modalities with which it is taken.
Without a doubt, the metabolism plays a key role here, as it is involved in a multitude of physiological processes. Subjectivity, in this case, is practically total and many elements should be taken into account, among which body weight. The “time frame of CBD to take effect” is generally related to the administration modalities.
The importance of administration modalities of CBD
If one should opt for oral administration, for example, it should be taken into consideration that cannabidiol undergoes first pass metabolism at hepatic level, where part of it is inevitably digested, while only thereafter the remaining exerts its modulating action on the endocannabinoid system. The most effective way of oral administration of CBD is certainly the sublingual application of some drops of the product. In this manner the passage directly into the bloodstream is made possible, by means of the capillaries present in the mouth and under the tongue (a highly vascularised area). Cannabidiol is not "dispersed" and exercises its functions in a minimum time lapse, almost immediately.
The oil is full spectrum: it also contains the terpenes present in the hemp plant from which the oil is extracted. In line with the specific requirements, the build and the taste of the person, Enecta CBD oil is available in different concentrations.
In the same way, also cannabidiol crystals can release their effect in different time periods, according to the selected modality of intake. If crystals are used in a herbal tea or a culinary recipe, the effects will manifest following the metabolic cycle. If, on the other hand, one opts for vaporisation, cannabidiol passes through the lungs, entering in circulation instantaneously and taking effect immediately.
When using CBD crystals, one is certain to consume the pure active principle and avoids whichever possibility of interaction performed by the other compounds of the hemp plant like, for example, another cannabinoid or a terpene. The use of crystals is more targeted, differently from full spectrum products. One of the advantages guaranteed by CBD in the form of crystals is the possibility to dose the quantity of active principle one is taking easily.
The Enecta product lines offer various possibilities for satisfying the requirements of each and every individual. One can choose the type of product one prefers, the concentration of the active principles from the cannabis plant, as well as the modalities of intake, making it possible to benefit from the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) in the most suitable time period with respect to the specific needs of each individual.
