Can You Build a Tolerance to CBD?

by | Nov 23, 2020 | CBD Education

Our bodies are extremely intelligent and highly functional. They alert us when we are sick, happy, angry, or scared and are always working to keep us as healthy as possible. One of the most important things that our bodies can do is metabolize the things that we consume. From food to medication, our bodies work to process whatever it is that we choose to invite into our system. The more that we consume the same thing, though, the body can become tolerant to it. So, for example, someone who is addicted to alcohol is going to develop a tolerance because their body is able to metabolize alcohol faster than usual. Therefore, they need to increase how much they drink in order to feel the effects they want. The same goes for other things we consume, such as caffeine or over-the-counter pain relievers. The more we expose our bodies to these things, the faster the body starts to metabolize it. This is not true for everything, but our bodies have the ability to become tolerant to several things.

Today, one of the most popular all-natural medications people are seeking out is CBD. Whether it is oil or an edible, CBD has proven to help alleviate pain, treat symptoms of common mental illnesses like anxiety and depression, and increase physical function. But, like alcohol, caffeine, or over-the-counter pain relievers, the body can become tolerant to CBD. When this is the case, some people might think that it is no longer working, but what it means is that the body needs more CBD in order to provide the desired results. 

Water Soluble CBD

Rapid Absorption. Rapid Uptake.

To make our CBD water-soluble, we bond our ultra-refined CBD isolate and proprietary terpene blend to pure vegetable glycerin and encapsulate it in micro-sized nano-water clusters.

CBD Tolerance

You can become tolerant to CBD just as easily as most anything else. If you are using CBD on a regular basis, it is more likely that you will become tolerant faster than someone who only uses it periodically. If you find that you are tolerant to the amount of CBD you are consuming, you can:

  • Increase your dose — By upping how much CBD you are consuming, you can get the effects you want. Unlike other instances where increasing your consumption of something you are tolerant to (such as heroin or cocaine), you cannot overdose from CBD.
  • Step away for a minute — If you use CBD regularly and are no longer experiencing the benefits of it, know that it is probably because you are tolerant to it. Simply taking a break from using it for a few days can help lessen that tolerance so that when you use again, you will get the effects you want.
  • Change things up — Take into consideration some factors such as what time of day you are taking your CBD, how you are consuming it, and what type you are using. Consider changing up how you normally consume CBD by choosing another method of use or by taking it at a different time of day.
