Wellness advocates across the globe are reaching for CBD to support their individual goals. To ensure that you get the most from this natural therapy, there are a few things that you should do. Read on to learn how to use CBD to reach your greatest potential.
1. Take CBD daily
When using supplements, consistency is essential. You would not take a probiotic once and expect your digestive health to flourish. Similarly, you will not get the most from CBD if you take it randomly. To experience the greatest benefits, take CBD daily over an extended period of time. Think of CBD as the newest addition to your wellness routine. To help you remember to take it, pair it with another daily ritual—maybe as an addition to your morning sun salutations or evening meditation wind-down routine.
2. Use CBD at the right time
We each have our own unique aspirations and challenges. We hope that you find your daily stresses melt away after you take your morning CBD or your nighttime restlessness calm following your evening CBD. To best support you on this journey we call life, we encourage you to use CBD when you feel like you could use a helping hand. Ask yourself, what are you hoping to achieve by taking CBD? If you use CBD as one part of a routine to support restful sleep, it may be best to take CBD in the evening. But if your biggest wellness struggle is heightened stress during the day, you should consider using CBD in the morning and see if it helps*. Once you determine your wellness aspirations, use that information to guide you to the best time to take CBD. There is no right or wrong route. You may find that you live your best life with CBD used in the morning, the evening, or both. And if you do not experience immediate effects, remember, it can take time for a new routine to work its magic. Be consistent (see #1) and play around until you find your right dosage (read more about how to find your best CBD dose here).
3. Follow a healthy lifestyle
As any wellness advocate understands, life offers no panaceas. There are many pieces that work together to create a healthy, fulfilling life. To get the most from CBD—or any other supplement—you need to include it as part of a healthy lifestyle.
View your life holistically. Take care of your body, inside and out. Spend more time doing the things that make you feel alive. Surround yourself with people who lift you up. And never forget the importance of a balanced diet and regular physical activity. This is the recipe for lasting, meaningful change.
Looking to try CBD but don’t know where to start? We recommend one of our CBD oil’s. They are available in three flavors and varying CBD concentration levels. Take them in the morning or at night; and try different dosing levels the first couple of weeks until you find the best daily routine that works for you. And remember to always use them as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. To find more information about CBD checkout the Yesterday Journal’s CBD 101 section, available here.
