How long does it take for hemp oil to work?
Depending on the delivery method, effects can be felt in minutes.  Vaping CBD is one of the quickest ways for absorption but the act of heating the oil diminishes the quantity received.  Taking your CBD sublingually is the most effective method, giving you relief within minutes.  The absorption is more complete and measurable per dose.  When consuming a product with CBD, there is a delayed onset and will typically be felt within 20 minutes to hour depending on body weight, time of last meal and metabolism rate.  While with topicals, the absorption is slow yet uniformed and takes the longest to enter the body. 
What should I look for when buying hemp extract products?
