In a world where modernization and technology have taken over many consumers are returning to a more natural way of living. They are also looking for a more natural way of treating ailments and medical conditions. The popularity of hemp oil has grown leaps and bounds in the last year. All natural cannabinoid oil has been proven to calm anxiety, ease pain and help reduce inflammation.
There are six common mistakes that new cannabinoid oil consumers make. The first one is not researching the hemp’s country of origin. Hemp is not regulated in certain parts of the world. This allows the grower to use chemicals to promote growth. These chemicals have the potential to cause adverse reactions. Hemp is a bioaccumulate, making it easily absorb chemicals and substances from the soil that builds up in the plant’s tissues. These substances and chemicals can reach the final product causing side effects. Cannabinoid oil usually has no side effects when it is all natural. In certain countries, hemp farmers use very harmful pesticides that can be very dangerous.
The second mistake is choosing a non-lab tested oil. It is always recommended that cannabis oil is tested. If the supplier is reputable their hemp oils are usually lab-tested and have all the details of their raw and final products. Not all companies test both raw and final products but always choose a company that has at least tested the final product. Make sure that an all natural product is chosen.
The third mistake would be not verifying the dosage on the hemp oil. Medication from a primary care physician has a dosage label, you should read the label on cannabinoid oil also. If you have hemp tincture the bottle should say how many milligrams are in each dropper full. A few tinctures even list how many milligrams per each drop. It is suggested to start with the lowest recommended dosage and increase from there for effectiveness. It is key to remain consistent when taking hemp tincture.
The fourth mistake would be not documenting in a journal when taking hemp. Each individual reacts differently to cannabinoid oil, a dose that is effective for one might not be effective for another. If the consumer isn’t keeping up with what dosage and when they are taking their hemp oil they could become inconsistent in their regimen. When taking hemp it requires a certain amount of experimentation to get the dosage right. Keeping a journal eliminates inconsistencies. Always write down the type of oil your take, the dosage, the time it was taken, and the effects that it had on your body.
The fifth mistake would be expecting immediate results. As with any medication or treatment, it might require a few doses before a person notices the effects it has. Some individuals do not require a build up of cannabinoid oil in their system and it is effective immediately. Those cases are very rare.
The sixth mistake would be consuming hemp the wrong way or in the wrong form. There are many different ways it can be consumed. Such as, topically, vaping, sublingual, orally in gel capsules, or transdermally. The condition for which you are treating and looking to improve should determine the route of administration. Always consult a healthcare professional for advice on the correct dosage and route of administration. Keeping a journal will also assist the professional in making the correct changes to your regimen.
A select few individuals would like to give cannabinoid oil the status of being magical that can cure all diseases. While it is effective in most cases it is not a cure-all for everything. Hemp has been very effective for many people but hasn’t worked for everyone. Not making these six mistakes will increase the chances of hemp being effective for new users.
