How to get the most out of your CBD routine.

Establishing a daily or weekly routine is the best way to ensure you are getting the most out of our CBD products. A consistent CBD routine will allow you to feed your endocannabinoid system (ECS) and its tiny receptors (CB1 and CB2) on a regular basis so your body can maintain homeostasis or balance. Sometimes it can be confusing when to take your CBD products, how much to take and in what application. Whether you’re a busy parents, working professional or living an active lifestyle, establishing a consistent CBD routine can make life a whole lot better.
This article is meant to provide you with a few tips on how to maximize the full benefits of hemp CBD products to help feel your best.

Add CBD to your mornings
Are you a coffee or tea drinker? Well, if you’re like the 30 million Americans who like to wake up with a fresh cup of brewed coffee, here’s a helpful tip to keep the morning jitters away. Just before you take your first sip of coffee, drop a dosage of the Full Spectrum Stress CBD Oil Tincture under your tongue and let it sit for 30+ seconds while your coffee is brewing. This will kickstart your vagus nerve and parasympathetic nervous system to keep your mind and body calm before adding caffeine to your system. You can also take a dosage (25mg of CBD) of either the No THC Gummies or No THC Gel Capsules if you prefer that application as well.
If you’re like millions of people who have ditched caffeine altogether, we highly recommend taking our Energy Drink Tablet in the morning to kick your system into full gear. Blended together is a plant-stacked formulation of Green Tea Extract, Ginseng, Rhodiola Rosea and Vitamins B6, B12 and C to elevate your mood before you tackle the day.

Incorporate CBD into your daily or weekly supplement regimen
The next CBD pro tip, is to simply incorporate your daily preference of CBD products, whether ingestibles or topicals, into your existing vitamin routine. CBD Gummies, Softgel Capsules and Tincture Oils are a convenient way to add to your existing wellness supplement regimen, since they don’t require any extra preparation. All you need to do is establish your dosage and add it to the mix.

It doesn’t matter if you take CBD at night or in the morning, the most important factor is that you’re using it consistently to maximize the medicinal benefits. Keep your CBD products near other vitamins or supplements to remind you.

Use CBD post-workout or activity
Exercise can take a toll on your muscles, joints, bones and nervous system. In fact, regular exercise breaks down our muscles and tissues, causing inflammation throughout our body when we push ourselves in the gym, on the track, trails or wherever. Luckily, CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps heal our muscles, joints and nervous systems after we workouts by reducing inflammation and mitigating acute pain.

Adding Gummies, Tincture Oils, Gel Capsules or Stress Drink Tablets to your post-workout routine will boost your performance and maximize results. This will allow you to feel more recovered the next day to continue staying active and healthy.

Another great way to help with your performance is to add a CBD topical such as a Salve Stick or Massage Oil into the mix to help with pain and inflammation that might occur in your muscles, joints or bones. Topials don’t pass the blood brain barrier, however they do target the receptors in needed areas. The onset can be felt within 15-20 min and can last up to 2-3 hours. The Salve Stick is formulated as a quick-rub-on pain relief solution for sore, achy or irritated muscles, joints, rashes, etc. It is more of a cooling reagent that is soothing and calming for the skin. However, the Massage Oil is formulated to heat up your tissue fibers so the enriched essential oils such as turmeric, arnica, juniper, apricot and more plus CBD oil can get deeper into the tissue. This creates a heating effect that has lasting pain relief effects.

Incorporate CBD into your post-work & nighttime routine
One of the reasons CBD has become so popular is because of its incredible properties that help us fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed. When consumed in higher dosages, CBD is a wonderful all-natural tool to help with sleep disturbances. Especially our Full Spectrum Sleep Tincture Oil which is formulated with advanced plant compounds such as Reishi, Passion Flower, Valerian Root, Hops and Beta-caryophyllene. This is our best selling sleep tool for our community. We recommend dropping a half or full dosage (33-66mg CBD) under your tongue after you brush your teeth and let it sit for 30 seconds or more. You will feel the sedative effects within 20-30 minutes.

Key CBD routine takeaways
CBD is a powerful plant compound that can be used in a variety of ways, applications and can be taken as a wellness tool throughout your day; mornings, mid-day, post-workout and at night. It can be used to kick start your busy days so you can tackle more and to calm your mind for a good night’s sleep. The most important thing is to take it consistently. Find products that you enjoy taking, that work for you and are the right dosage. We always recommend going low and slow until you find the dosage that works best for your specific needs.
