How Come Some CBD Oils Affect You Differently?

Have you ever wondered why some CBD oils might seem to affect you – or people you know – differently? There’s a huge amount of variation when it comes to CBD oils, and not every CBD oil supplement is created equally. With this thought in mind, today, we’re looking at why different CBD oils might affect you differently and how you can ensure your choice of CBD oils doesn’t leave a bad taste on your tongue (literally).


How Come Some CBD Oils Affect You Differently? 

CBD is rapidly growing in popularity, but unfortunately, not all CBD supplements are necessarily made to the same exacting standards used for our range here at Provacan. With this thought in mind, this begs the question: how come some CBD oils affect you differently? Well, there are several different factors that can play into the efficacy of a particular CBD oil. It’s also worth remembering that CBD oils come in different types, too – and this may somewhat alter how you use them.


CBD Oils Come in Varying Strengths and Sizes

Strength is one of the main things you should consider when thinking about CBD oils and how they can affect you differently. Indeed, in many cases, CBD oils are available in highly variable strengths – for example, our own range of top-quality CBD oils varies between 3% and 25% CBD, representing a massive spectrum!

CBD also comes in different sizes. The most popular are 10ml bottles such as Provacan’s high concentration 10ml CBD, while others come in bigger sizes of 30ml. It is important to understand the strength differences between the bottles as bigger does not necessarily mean stronger. 

Understanding how strength can impact your CBD oil affects you doesn’t take much explaining. A single drop of high-strength CBD oil is likely to have a much more profound impact than a single drop of low strength CBD oil. As such, why leave it to chance – always ensure you’ve got the highest-quality CBD oil in place to begin with before getting started and pay attention to the strength.


Full Spectrum vs. Pure CBD Oil 

Another factor you should consider in terms of how CBD oils affect you is whether it’s full-spectrum or pure CBD Isolate. Full spectrum, which means it contains a wider array of cannabinoid compounds (including CBD). By contrast, CBD Isolate will not containin the range of cannabinoids and is rather 100% pure CBD; this could of course impact your experience accordingly.


Not All CBD Oils are Novel Food Approved 

Another factor to consider when looking for CBD oils and outlining the differences between them is that not all CBD oils are novel food approved. An unauthorized CBD supplement is significantly more likely to contain impurities that may impact the final quality and your overall experience with the supplement. 

For example, if a chosen CBD supplement is not novel food approved, there’s a much greater chance it will contain THC. This is the psychedelic compound in cannabis plants that creates the sensation of being “high.” Why risk this? Instead, buying a Novel Foods-approved and authorised product is a much safer bet. And, don’t forget that authorised products also help give you peace of mind that you’re genuinely taking legal, hemp-derived CBD supplements that have been made with quality in mind. This can reduce the risk of complications or experiencing unexpected side effects of your chosen supplement as a result.


Beware of So-Called “Snake Oils” in the CBD Market

Unfortunately, many people still believe that CBD oils are a miracle cure – which isn’t the case. However, CBD oil may offer support for well-being and sleep quality, which can provide numerous benefits to your quality of life. After all, a good night’s sleep will make us all feel better! 

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for so-called “snake CBD oils.” Ignore the odd term, as it generally refers to a dishonest and sneaky product – potentially trying to dupe customers into thinking it can do more than it actually does.

Often, “snake” oils are products that are sold as being able to cure a wide range of ailments but without having a genuine medicinal value. In terms of snake CBD oils, this may refer to products containing genuine doses of CBD misleadingly claiming that they can fix any condition. Alternatively, in some scenarios, these “snake CBD oils” may not even contain any – or only marginal amounts – of CBD, rendering their dosage too low to provide any benefits to your well-being.

It’s always worth checking the quality and potency of your chosen CBD oil before starting. If a brand seems hesitant to provide this information, this may be a warning sign.


How Can I Check the Quality of my Chosen CBD Oil? 

By now, you may be wondering: if the quality of CBD oils can vary so significantly, how can you be sure your chosen CBD oil is of a high standard? Well, this is fortunately a very simple thing to check (provided you’re looking at a genuine product). 

All high-quality, approved CBD oils should offer a copy of a relevant third-party laboratory test for the product, proving the batch’s authenticity and purity. Our team here at Provacan, for example, display this directly on our product pages to make it effortless for our customers to find the confidence they deserve in our products. After all, your confidence is our number one priority, and we’re immensely proud of the quality of our CBD supplements. 


Unfortunately, not all CBD oils are created equally. And while we all like to hope that we’re buying top-quality CBD oils and supplements, in reality, this often is not the case. As such, it’s crucial to take some time to consider the different features of CBD oils and how these might influence your decision regarding the best CBD oil for a specific application.

Remember: when purchasing CBD oil, quality is everything. As such, it’s critical to ensure your chosen CBD oil is Novel Foods approved and contains a pure, uncontaminated combination of ingredients, for the best results.
