Why CBD might not be working for you

At BeYou we love talking about all things CBD. Whether it’s which type is best for you, taking it on holiday or whether or not you can take it through your belly button, we are to here to answer your CBD questions. We understand that not everyone will be satisfied with CBD from the get-go. That’s why we are here to breakdown your CBD concerns so you can have the best start to your CBD journey. 

Over the past few months, we have been reaching out to our CBD customers, asking them how they use their CBD. We love to hear honest feedback from our customers and making sure they are satisfied with our products. From their feedback, this is what we found out...

Our findings 

We asked over 1000 different BeYou customers for their feedback which has, in turn, informed our advice around the best ways to use CBD. CBD works differently for everyone but there are some top tips that all CBD users should stick to, to have the best CBD experience possible. 

We found out that many of our customers had questions about CBD Drops and Sprays as just over 20% stated that they weren’t completely satisfied with their CBD. This then dropped to less than 5% after we followed our new CBD journey. That’s why the data below is so important. 


Finding the correct CBD dosage 

We found out that dosage is key in getting the most out of your CBD. Our most satisfied customers use at least 70mg of CBD a day which is why we recommend to all users to take 70mg a day, for a week. After one week, you can then gauge how your body responds to CBD

Those who explained to us they weren’t as satisfied with CBD were actually taking very small doses. However, when they increased their daily dosage we received many more positive reactions from our wide variety of users. That’s why we recommend trying out a higher dose to see if CBD is right for you. 

Don’t worry, you can always start off with a higher dose and decrease your dosage every week after you notice the desired effects. You can use our handy graph below to see if you need to increase or decrease your CBD.  


Your CBD routine 

Another result from our findings showed us that some users are unsure of the best way to take CBD. Follow our top tips below to perfect your CBD routine. 

  1. If you’re using a pipette, make sure to monitor how much oil you’re using. We recommend using two halve doses for ease. 

  2. Remember to take CBD under the tongue! Our CBD Drops and Spray should be left underneath the tongue for at least 90 seconds until fully absorbed. 

  3. If you’re struggling to reach 70mg for your daily usage then why not try using different products. We recommend using our CBD Oral Spray in combination with our CBD Muscle Balm.  

Looking for lower dose CBD in an easy format to use on the go? Try our CBD Gummies, available exclusively at Superdrug. 


Using CBD regularly 

If you’re just starting out on your CBD journey then consistency is key. Getting into a new habit can be difficult, especially if you have to do something twice a day. However, from our findings, we found out our most satisfied CBD customers were those who took the recommended CBD dosage every day. Another question we get asked a lot is whether it is better to take CBD in the morning or evening. There isn’t necessarily a ‘prime time’ to take CBD. In fact, we found that customers who spread their CBD doses throughout the day were the most satisfied.
