How does CBD make you feel?

How Does CBD Make you Feel?

CBD can support the mind and body in numerous amazing ways. Some of the best feelings that users get from consuming CBD include a sense of calm and relaxation, healthy sleep cycles, quick recovery from exercise-induced inflammation, and more. So, what does CBD feel like when you take it? Let’s find out in this article.


How Does CBD Make You Feel?

It can be hard to express exactly how CBD makes you feel. Let’s look at what current research has to say. Research demonstrates CBD complements different areas of health and the type of CBD product you use and the total dosage you administer will also influence the overall feeling of CBD.


CBD Products and Their Effects

  • CBD Oils

CBD Oils are ingestible CBD extracts that are usually consumed sublingually. By sublingual consumption we mean you place the oil under your tongue and allow your capillaries within your tongue to directly absorb some of the CBD. The sublingual method is quite fast in producing effects, taking around 15 to 30 minutes to take effect.


  • CBD Edibles and CBD Softgels

Edibles cover a broad range of products. Let’s define “edible” as CBD which is ingested and processed exclusively in the liver. Edibles include products like CBD Gummies, candies, and more. Despite being different all edibles take around 30 to 45 minutes to take effect. Despite this slow effect, the effects tend to last longer than other methods.


  • CBD Topicals

CBD topicals don’t pass through the mouth, they are rather absorbed by the skin. This means the CBD won’t enter your bloodstream but work on the membranes of the skin. This provides excellent localized relief for conditions such as pain and inflammation. CBD topicals take around 10 to 20 minutes to become effective.  


How Long will I Feel the Effect of CBD?

You're probably wondering how long the feeling of CBD effects lasts - this will mostly depend on the CBD products you take (i.e., oil, capsules, edibles, etc). Using CBD oil drops sublingually (under the tongue) ensures instant effects usually within 5-10 minutes. Capsules and edibles take much longer to become effective (up to 90 minutes), and this is because they pass via your digestive system before entering the bloodstream. However, CBD edibles are great for those who want to enjoy CBD in a delicious form.


Can CBD Make You Feel Bad?

While most people know CBD for its good effects it also has its bad sides. Although uncommon, some CBD products can cause side effects – especially when taken at high doses. However, the side effects of CBD are mild when compared to many prescription medications. Common negative effects of CBD include:


  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry mouth
  • Decreased appetite



By now you can understand the feeling CBD brings. This can vary tremendously based on your situation. Also, the effects of CBD might vary from person to person. Individuals have different brains and bodies explaining the differences in effects. However, keep in mind that CBD is not known for mind blowing effects, rather if you want to feel very good consider THC the psychoactive cannabinoid.
