Occasionally, we will hear about someone who is finding that their CBD product works great for one symptom they have but not so much for another. And so we get asked, “Can I take multiple CBD products at the same time?”
The short answer is yes, you can use multiple CBD products at the same time. It’s relatively common for people to use different products for different issues. As with most things CBD-related, it’s all about finding the right type and mix of products that work best for you.
Reasons to Use Multiple CBD Products
Taking multiple CBD products at the same time can be a great way to get symptom relief for multiple conditions. It can also be a great way to control acute, breakthrough pain while still taking products preventatively.
For example, someone with chronic migraines may want to use sublingual CBD oil drops daily as a general migraine preventative. But let’s say they also get an increase in migraine pain during their monthly menstrual cycle.
This breakthrough pain may not be as easily controlled by their daily preventative CBD oil drops, and so they can turn to other methods. Vaping CBD oil, applying transdermal CBD creams, or applying CBD patches are all great way to give yourself a boost during the times when you just need a little more. Vaping especially, due to its near immediate effects.
Another example of using multiple methods is someone who finds their sublingual oil great to use in the early morning and evening, but not so great to carry around and dose with during the day. Other methods can be more portable, such as capsules, gummies, and vaping, so they may choose to use those to fill in the gaps.
What About Different Symptoms?
You’re probably still wondering about using products not just for breakthrough pain, but also for completely different problems and symptoms. Rest assured, it’s completely fine to use multiple products for this. If one product works amazing for anxiety you experience before work, but gives you too much energy at night, you can substitute a different evening product.
Terpenes are a great way to make multiple products yourself, catered to your symptoms and needs. You can make your own CBD oil products or buy a pre-made one and add terpenes to it. Terpenes have their own benefits when it comes to symptom management, so you could make your own blend of “terpsolate” that fits all your needs.
Final Thoughts on Using Multiple CBD Products
Using multiple methods is a great way to really find a system of CBD use that works for you. “One size fits all” does not always apply, and you may need to do some experimentation to find the right products that best fit your needs. Sometimes you may experience breakthrough symptoms, so it’s okay to use another product to give you a little boost.
