How long does it take for CBD to have an effect?


“How long does it take” is one of the most frequent questions regarding CBD use.

It is essential to underline that when it comes to CBD products, meaning capsules, tinctures, edibles, and oil, every organism performs different results.

How long does it take for CBD to work?

In some people, the results are immediate. A lot of people report improvement in their sleep even from the first time of oil use.

Others need at least two weeks or even one month until they observe its effectiveness. Therefore, it is essential to be patient on the first days of CBD use. Many people give up pretty soon or fail to experiment until they find a suitable dosage for themselves.

When CBD is taken sublingually, enters the bloodstream and the circulatory system in about 20 minutes. However, they may need up to two hours if it is edible or capsule, while through vaping the results are even more immediate in just a few minutes.

I have taken CBD oil for a while and I didn’t feel any difference.

When you take CBD for an extended period without evident results, that means you don’t take the right dosage. The recommended dosage starts with a minimum dosage of 5mg per day and increases slowly every 5-7 days.

For those who have psychological problems or inflammation, a daily dosage of 10mg before sleep is enough to improve their sleep quality, but sometimes they may need a higher dosage. For other cases, such as anxiety, chronic pain, and depression, the recommended daily dosage is 60mg. It is vital to experiment in the beginning and understand the dosage that works best for you. It is necessary to be patient and give cannabidiol time to work.

 Recommendations to optimize the beneficial properties of CBD;

  • Buy the right percentage – It will take a while until you find a suitable dosage for yourself. So take time to experiment.
  • Be consistent regarding the dosage – It is essential to use a daily CBD dosage for better results. In case you miss a dosage, the effectiveness and the quantity of CBD in the system will decrease.
  • Try to hear your body – In case you feel uncomfortable, try to decrease the dosage until you feel the desired results. Observe your body and keep a diary where you track the dosages and the effectiveness every week.
  • Split your dosage – Sometimes, a dosage of 5 mg may be efficient when used 4 times a day ( in total 20mg) instead of one unique dosage during the day or night.


There isn’t one unique dosage for all people. As a result, the effectiveness differentiates from organism to organism, exactly the same thing that occurs with the conventional prescriptions.

Be patient and hear your body while you are experimenting. In this way, it is possible to arrive at the desired results.
