So far, studies have not yielded large-scale evidence, but early signs and user stories indicate that cannabis could become a natural medicine. In this article we take a closer look at how CBD oil works. No time to read everything? No problem! Click on one of the titles in the table of contents and we will refer you directly!
CBD oil effect: How does CBD oil work?
The CBD oil effect varies per person, since CBD does not work the same for everyone. Every body is different. The way you take cannabinoids such as CBD largely determines how and how quickly the oil works.
How does CBD oil work? When inhaling the CBD product, the combination of substances from cannabis can enter your blood within a few minutes. If you opt for oral administration via CBD oil, the peak absorption in your blood can take up to 90 minutes.
Different ways of use
Whether you smoke cannabis, apply it to your skin or take it orally as a dietary supplement, your body can only process about 35% of the administered CBD. The rest is removed from your body as waste. Well-known ways to take CBD in addition to oil are CBD ointment and CBD massage oil. Both forms of CBD keep the skin supple in a natural way and they have a moisturizing function.
Our customers often also opt for CBD capsules; the effect is the same as the CBD oil effect. Due to the gastric acid-resistant layer of the capsules, the active substances are only released in the intestines. CBD capsules are ideal for a higher bioabsorption.
How and when does CBD leave your body?
After transport through the blood and processing in the liver, CBD leaves the body through your digestive tract or is stored in fat cells. Similar to the intoxicating other cannabis compound, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), most of the remaining CBD is excreted in your stool within one to two days of your first dose. Only a quarter of the residual CBD products leave your body through urine.
The effects: oral use
Because everyone is different, this also relates to how long it takes for CBD oil to start working and what the effect of CBD oil is. Most people have the best results after half an hour to an hour and a half by taking CBD oil by mouth. It is important that you always let the CBD oil sit under the tongue for at least three to five minutes when used orally for a fast and effective effect.
The effects: topical use
When applying CBD to the skin, the effect can often start faster. When using capsules, it can take three hours before the effect really starts. This is mainly due to the opening of the capsule in the intestinal region. The Cannabas brand offers CBD capsules of superior quality.
In addition, it is very important that you realize that the result you will get with the use of CBD oil can certainly last between 6 and 12 weeks. It is essential to first maintain a build-up phase to check how CBD oil works for you.
Also try other cannabinoids
Combining CBD oil can also be combined with other types of cannabis oil from the hemp plant, as hundreds of other cannabinoids with impressive effects occur naturally in the hemp plant. In addition to CBD oil, we also offer other oils from the hemp plant with cannabinoids that have a positive effect, including:

What is the effect of CBD oil?
For many of our customers, the effect of CBD oil is not immediately noticeable. Finding the right dosage by means of a good instruction for use is therefore of great importance. The effect of CBD oil depends on several factors, including:
- Body weight;
- (Healthy) lifestyle;
- Specific complaints;
- Quality of the oil;
- The immune system;
- Method and frequency of use;
- Combining another product/supplement;
- The use of complementary cannabinoids;
- The use of medication;
- The CBD concentration;
- Guidance in use;
- Human or animal? (Read also: CBD oil for animals).
The effect of CBD oil cannot be fully determined in advance, as each person reacts differently to the oil. This also applies to the cannabinoid THC. In one person, CBD helps to reduce pain and inflammation, while someone else uses hemp oil for a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
How CBD oil works on your body
CBD oil has an internal effect. The points below clearly explain in a few steps what CBD oil does to your body.
CBD is taken with a certain dosage. This is done orally through CBD oil under the tongue, through the skin with ointment or massage oil or through CBD Capsules. Are you starting with cannabis oil for the first time? Then start with a low dose.
As soon as the CBD starts doing its job internally, it comes into contact with the cannabis’ own internal system, also known as the endocannabinoid system. This system works closely with receptors called: CB1 and CB2 receptors.
The substances are absorbed by the CB1 and CB2 receptors when ingested. The CB1 receptors are mainly located in the higher region of the body. Think of the brain, lungs and heart. The CB2 receptors are mainly located in the lower organs, such as the liver, intestines and stomach.
The effect of the cannabinoid CBD is activated and shares the necessary support to the body and immune system through the receptors.
What is CBD oil used for?
The cannabis plant has been used since prehistoric times, mainly for the cannabinoid CBD and THC. Our ancestors mainly used CBD to treat inflammation, pain, anxiety, stress, a migraine, sleeping problems, neuropathic pain, epilepsy and other physical and mental complaints and conditions. It is forbidden by law to make medical statements about the benefits of CBD oil, but we can tell you that research is currently still being done into the functioning and healing effects of cannabis and the various cannabinoids from the hemp plant.
Long-term and consistent use
If you start with CBD oil, long-term use and consistent intake are of great importance. Long-term use of CBD oil can also ensure that you can reduce the number of drops you need, which leads to a lower dosage. This is because the body has built up a kind of mirror, so to speak.
Always try to reduce the dose after a build-up phase of an average of 12 weeks until you only use the CBD oil drops in a complementary and additional way. In this way you will achieve the best results according to experience.
We will contact you after 6 to 8 weeks of use to find out how you experience our CBD oil. During this conversation we can also provide expert advice and guidance on the correct approach to the dosage.
Is it safe?
Yes, taking CBD drops or other products is completely safe if you follow the recommended dosage and use the right CBD oil. CBD has no psychoactive effects. Since it is a non-psychoactive substance, CBD oil is not addictive. The psychoactive substance THC (weed) is known for its intoxicating effects that can make you feel ‘high’ or ‘stoned’. This is not the case with CBD.
In addition, CBD oil is 100% legal in the Netherlands, that no chemicals are processed in our oil and that we only work with natural ingredients and the highest quality.
Also suitable for children and animals
Our CBD oil is also suitable for pets such as dogs and cats, as they also have a body’s own ECS. Even children can use the right CBD oil. We offer oils of different concentrations, never exceeding the legal THC content.
Are there side effects?
No, you don’t have to worry about side effects if you follow the instructions on the packaging and start with a low dose. Know that if you take too much CBD, this could possibly lead to an overdose. Don’t panic, you don’t have to go to the doctor. All you have to do is stay calm and relax on the couch or in bed. After all, these are minor side effects such as dry mouth, nausea and drowsiness.
Is CBD oil legal?
Yes, CBD oil is completely legal in the Netherlands. If you live in Belgium, oral use is prohibited. Please contact us if you have any doubts. We are happy to help you so that you can also use our products.
Storing CBD oil
Store the bottle of CBD oil in a cool place and in a dark place, for example the refrigerator, the cellar or a kitchen cupboard. Remember to always keep the bottle with the cap closed. The CBD oil has a shelf life of at least one year after opening.
