Why Didn’t CBD Work?

The fact that CBD did not work in your experience does not mean that CBD does not work at all. In fact, it does work well for many ailments.

Learning why the problem occurred can help you improve your experience for the future. Let’s look at some common issues that may make it seem like CBD does not work.


As with any medication or supplement on the market, if you do not use enough, then you will not see any results. Since the government does not provide a serving size, it leaves you guesstimating.


CBD does not heal all that ails you in one use. For many conditions that CBD treats, you need to take it continuously. If you only took CBD one time, then it probably did not make enough physiological changes within your body to produce the desired result.


If you do not purchase your goods from a reputable CBD company, then you cannot guarantee a quality outcome. Some companies simply do not provide a product that works.

Factors that will affect the quality of your CBD include:

  • The hemp or marijuana plants
  • CBD Extraction methods
  • Whether or not they winterized and decarbed the oil
  • What they mix the CBD with

Some companies provide a product with little CBD or inactive CBD due to cutting corners for money saving purposes. Buying a cheap product does not always mean that you got a deal.

Furthermore, some brands actually create imposter CBD products. This can lead to a psychoactive effect, no effect at all, or poisoning, depending on what they actually use.

Isolate Vs. Full Spectrum

Though pure CBD products that contain isolate provide a number of health benefits, they may not work for your specific ailment. More severe inflammation or conditions may call for a full spectrum oil instead.

CBD isolates provide users with pure CBD and no other cannabinoids, taking away any fear of failing drug tests. This works well if you suffer from milder conditions or simply take it as a long-term supplement to keep yourself healthy.

However, full spectrum products and CBD tinctures that also contain other cannabinoids will pack a more potent punch. You may simply need the entourage effect created when CBD mixes with other cannabinoids to see real results from your CBD oil.

Misguided Expectations

Yes, CBD works for a wide variety of conditions. However, it does not work for everything. CBD will not work for you if you use it for something that it cannot treat.

It also does not work magic, though it may feel like it for some people.

The fact that CBD may help reduce tumor sizes or stop cancer cell proliferation in some cases does not mean that it cures cancer. If you want to reap the benefits of cannabidiol, then you must go in with realistic expectations.

How to Properly Use CBD

Now that you can figure out why this cannabinoid did not work for you before, read this CBD user’s manual to learn how to make it work in the future.

1. Take Enough

Your proper dosage will depend on your height, weight, metabolism, ailment, severity, and other factors. If you suffer from mild symptoms or are taking CBD for maintenance, try 1-2mg of CBD for every 10lbs of body weight. For moderate symptoms, use 3-4 mg per 10 lbs of body weight.  With more severe symptoms, you may need 5-6 mg per 10 lbs of body weight.

However, always start with the lowest dose for your weight and move up. For instance, if you weigh 130lbs, start by taking 13mg, and increase the dosage one mg each day until you reach your desired effect. Determine what CBD dosage will work for you through trial and error.

As mentioned above, you also need to take enough of it. Taking this dose once may not improve your chronic pain or inflammation. Take your CBD twice a day regularly, until you heal.

2.  Choose Regenefi

At Regenefi, we offer CBD products that you can trust. We begin with high quality, organic hemp, and do not cut any corners or skip a step during the processing. We mix our tinctures with MCT oil to provide an optimal delivery mode with added benefits and you can trust our attention to detail on our labels and website.

3. Choose a Product Based on Your Needs

Different CBD products serve unique purposes. For muscle pain, a CBD topical cream may work best. For insomnia, our sleep tincture may better serve you. Understand your needs and then choose a product based on them.

4. Use CBD for Intended Uses

Unfortunately, CBD oil does not cure the flu or work as birth control. However, this cool cannabinoid does  serve other wellness purposes, including:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-anxiety
  • Anti-depressant
  • Anti-convulsant
  • Anti-nausea
  • Sleep Aid
  • Analgesic
  • Antioxidant
  • Skin and hair care
  • Alzheimer’s deterrent
  • Treats symptoms of many autoimmune disorders
  • Fitness booster
  • Eases migraines
  • Aids in heart health

CBD can effectively improve your life if you use it for the right reasons.
