Why CBD May Not Be Working for You: Uncovering Potential Factors Impeding Its Effectiveness

Apr 16, 2024

CBD, or cannabidiol, has garnered immense popularity for its potential health benefits. However, one common frustration among users is its apparent lack of effectiveness. If you are one of those individuals experiencing limited or no desired results from CBD, fret not. In this Blog post, we will examine potential reasons behind CBD’s ineffective outcomes and shed light on factors such as poor product quality, incorrect dosage, absorption issues, individual body chemistry, lack of patience, and inconsistent usage.

1. Poor Product Quality

The quality of CBD products varies considerably in today’s market. Substandard extraction methods, improper formulation, and impurities may result in subpar products that fail to deliver the expected results. When purchasing CBD, prioritize reputable brands that provide third-party lab testing and transparent information about their sourcing and manufacturing processes. Ensuring you choose high-quality products significantly increases the likelihood of experiencing the desired therapeutic effects.

2. Incorrect Dosage

The right CBD dosage is crucial for achieving optimal results. Many users either take too little or too much, hindering its effectiveness. Determining the appropriate dosage is a process that relies on factors like body weight, condition being treated, and individual metabolism. Start with a low dose and gradually increase it until you find an optimal balance. Consulting with a healthcare professional familiar with CBD could provide invaluable guidance in determining your ideal dosage range.

3. Absorption Issues

CBD’s bioavailability, or its ability to be absorbed by the body, varies depending on the method of administration. Factors such as poor product formulation, low-quality carrier oils, or inefficient delivery systems may impede its absorption. Consider using CBD products with enhanced bioavailability, like nanoemulsions or transdermal patches. Experimenting with different delivery methods might help improve CBD’s effectiveness for you.

4. Individual Body Chemistry

Every person’s body chemistry differs, meaning the way CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system can also vary. Various genetic, metabolic, and hormonal factors can influence how CBD affects you. As an individual, you may need to seek alternative cannabinoid ratios (such as THC to CBD), different administration methods, or even different types of CBD altogether (isolate, full-spectrum, or broad-spectrum) to find what works best for your unique physiology.

5. Lack of Patience and Consistent Usage

CBD is not a magical cure-all with immediate results. Building up CBD’s effectiveness often requires patience and consistent usage. Many beneficial effects of CBD may take time to manifest, especially when addressing chronic conditions. Establishing a regular dosing routine and persevering with daily consumption over an extended period is essential to allowing CBD to work effectively within your system.


If you have been disappointed by CBD’s seeming inability to provide the desired relief, understanding the potential factors hindering its effectiveness can be enlightening. By considering product quality, dosage, absorption issues, body chemistry, patience, and regular usage, you can optimize CBD’s potential benefits and achieve the results you desire.

My husband suffers from severe leg cramps. And not restless leg syndrome. I stoped to talk to Nikki at HOPE LIVES! I was tell her about my husbands horrible leg cramps. She asked me if he would use PROPER CANNA NATURALS? The one Ms. Nikki... suggested was a cream the name is Rocky Mountain chill. It’s a muscle gel. I brought it home he looked at it two or three days tried it and almost instantly it took his cramps away. He spent two days with no leg cramps whatsoever using that cream. We ran out of the sample I have ordered the big bottle and I can’t wait for it to get here. It was hard to imagine that some thing all natural could do what it did for him and he feel better and get sleep. Not only him but me because he was not up and down all night . Thank you Nikki for the recommendation. It’s the best. I will be looking into their other products. Sincerely Mikieread more

I love my monthly subscription to Proper Canna Naturals! The soft gels are part of my daily routine and the Rocky Mountain Chill feels good on a sore back. All of their products are made with Organic Colorado hemp and lots of love 🥰

I recently switched from another big box brand of CBD oil to Proper Canna. Within a few weeks I knew I had made a really great decision. My back use to hurt every day of the week. I have about 1-2 days a month after heavy exercise now that I will... get moderate pain. The customer service is stellar and the product ships to your home very quickly. I love the packaging and supporting a small business, all while feeling better inside and out. I do have to rave about the Rocky Mountain Chill Gel. It can kick a headache is 10 minutes! My husband and I both absolutely love it. I would highly recommend Proper Canna to anyoneread more

As an avid proponent of grass roots businesses that do it right. Not only have I tried most of the products Proper Canna produces but I have incorporated most of their products into my lifestyle, permanently. The muscle gel has come through for... me when my body aches after an intense yoga session or a long bike ride and if I’m cramping. The tincture supports my overall well being and keeps me focused and on point.read more

I use the cooling muscle gel and love it! As a triathlete there are days that every inch of my body aches and the cooling muscle gel helps tremendously with recovery. I’ve tried other products and this is by far the best!
