How Does CBD Make You Feel?
9 min read
We believe that CBD shows a lot of promise in its potential to change the way we feel. So, what exactly does that mean? That’s an easy question, and a hard one. There’s no guarantee that two people will feel the same effects from the same product. For some people, two ibuprofens knock out a headache while for others, the same amount doesn’t move the needle at all. Some people may be unaffected by a glass of wine, while others may feel dizzy and light-headed after two sips. Our customers have shared hundreds of their own stories about how CBD has had positive effects on their comfort and state of mind.
A Well-Designed Machine
We all share the same basic structure inside; so, there are a few things we know for sure.
Every human being has an endocannabinoid system.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are typically found in major organs, including the brain, liver, kidneys, and lungs.
CB2 receptors are found throughout the various parts of the immune system.
When CB1 and CB2 receptors are activated, they can create reactions in other cells in the body.
Let’s draw an analogy here between our bodies and a large, sophisticated manufacturing facility. In both instances, there are switches found throughout that make things happen when they’re activated. Pushing a particular switch in the facility may turn on the conveyor belts in the shipping department, while another may activate the assembly line. Turn on all the right switches, and you have a factory running at peak efficiency. Activating the right switches in the body, in the form of cannabinoid receptors, may also cause positive effects that can help promote relief and harmony in our systems, organs, and mind.
All The Feels
So, what does CBD feel like? The short version is, CBD has the potential to help you feel like your best self. Not everyone is going to feel the same effects from Onyx & Rose CBD. However, take a look at our reviews, and you’ll find that there are a few general effects that are consistently observed by those taking CBD.
Anxiety & Stress
Scientists believe that CBD plays a part in helping lower stress levels, and gives you a better sense of well-being throughout your body. This may provide a welcome relief to those with stressful lives or busy careers, and help promote a calmer, happier existence every day. CBD doesn’t cloud your mind or make you feel intoxicated in any way. Some customers have shared that CBD helps them feel more at ease and less overwhelmed.
It doesn’t feel like your life is spiraling out of control. Tackling your to-do list feels more manageable, and you can breathe a sigh of relief, thinking, “I got this.”
I have been taking an antidepressant (that doesn’t really work) and benzos for anxiety/panic for over a year, and finally, I decided to try CBD oil after seeing so many great reviews. I’m SO glad that I did! This stuff really works. I have completely gotten off my medication, and I only use 10mg of the oil under my tongue every night. – Anna M., verified Onyx & Rose customer
I wanted something to calm my social anxiety but not make me feel high or foggy, and it’s helped me so much! – Amanda D., verified Onyx & Rose custome__r
I have bad anxiety and also have problems sleeping. I didn’t like taking medicine for my anxiety so I recently stopped taking it and this stuff has helped me so much. I also take it before bed to get a good nights sleep and it works great. – Carly N., verified Onyx & Rose customer
The CBD capsules have allowed me to stay so much more grounded with graduate school stress and I am so thankful for that. I have noticed a significant reduction in anxiety, inflammation, and my sleep has never been better. – Lily T., verified Onyx & Rose customer
Aches & Pains
Reports show that an increasing number of people who deal with pain are incorporating CBD into their wellness routine. The CDC reports that a whopping 20% of the U.S. adults are impacted by chronic pain. And it doesn’t end there. Dealing with chronic pain is tough, and has been linked to dependence on opioids, depression, and a lower quality of life. For those looking to get their groove back, including CBD in a regular wellness ritual may be worth a try. Some customers have shared that CBD helps them feel less burdened by aches and pains, and more like themselves.
It doesn’t feel like you’re on any sort of mind-dulling pain medication. Prescription medications and chemical concoctions often have a slew of icky side effects. Our CBD products have no chemical additives and are made from simple, natural ingredients that you can feel good about taking.
My boyfriend was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident that left him with multiple broken vertebrae in his back. This is almost two years later and he is still in severe pain. His bad days can be very debilitating. We have been applying this to his back before he goes to bed at night, and the pain relief he gets will last through the next day almost a full 24 hours. I am blown away. – Breanna S., verified Onyx & Rose customer
I’ve gone through my fair share of pain-relieving balms and sprays and patches, and THIS has saved me from my chronic back pain and back cramps. – Poailani K., verified Onyx & Rose customer

After years of fighting the pain of both osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis due to scleroderma, I have found relief using this Full Spectrum Oil. – Patricia B, verified Onyx & Rose customer
I have very tight hip flexors that usually cause me a lot of pain, especially after training legs or doing more intense cardio. I usually start feeling pain and tightness before bed and just Know that I am going to wake up in the morning hurting for the next few days. After training legs, I took 1 dropper of CBD oil and went to bed. I was shocked when I woke up in the morning feeling amazing and able to function 100%. I love it already! – Sara M., verified Onyx & Rose customer
Swelling & Inflammation
Whether used daily by those with severe conditions or taken as needed after a strenuous workout, there is a growing body of research that indicates that CBD has the potential to improve your quality of life. Some customers have shared that CBD helps them stay at the top of their game, like being able to focus on what matters and avoid feeling limited by inflammation.
It doesn’t feel like you’re out of options when it comes to managing pesky swelling and inflammation, or like living with these conditions is an unavoidable part of your life. If CBD improves your quality of life, chances are you’ll feel hopeful and revitalized.

Two months ago I had sudden, severe left knee pain. The diagnosis was arthritis. A friend of mine, who had knee pain, told me about CBD balm. It really helped him. I’ve been using CBD balm for almost 2 months and it has greatly reduced my knee pain. I’m very thankful to have learned about the product. It works! – Pam W., verified Onyx & Rose customer
I have TMJ, constant headaches and tension, herniated back and neck docs so inflammation is a usual with me. CBD oil continues to really help me keep the tension at a minimal and also calms me. – Kayla S., verified Onyx & Rose customer
Sleep & Insomnia
Many people have written to us that taking CBD has helped them enjoy more restful sleep. If your whole body is relaxed, it’s easier to drift off. Some customers have shared that CBD allows them to feel more at ease and less frustrated by difficulties falling and staying asleep.
You don’t feel like you’ve taken a sleeping pill or had a glass of wine. Imagine snuggling into your pillow and floating away. It’s like you’ve spent a long day at the beach or hiking. Chances are, your body just feels ready to rest.
I was feeling anxious at the end of the day and wouldn’t be able to sleep for hours even though exhausted. This oil has helped me get some solid sleep and help me feel refreshed in the morning! – Heather P., verified Onyx & Rose customer

Our bodies are complex machines with a lot of moving parts, and every system affects the others as it operates. By activating the cannabinoid receptors throughout your body, CBD may promote balance and harmony to every system individually, while helping them all work together as a whole. If you’re looking for natural, holistic wellness in body and mind, CBD is worth trying.
