There is a variety of methods that people are using to get their daily dose of CBD today... You can purchase CBD infused food & drink, add it to your food in oil form, and inhale it through your vape pen. We firmly believe that CBD is most effective when taken in oil form, directly under the tongue – Or, applied topically for targeted pain relief.  (If you’re not sure on the best method for you, read more about How to Take CBD Oil here).

However, there are ways you can tweak your daily routine to really get the most out of your daily CBD dose.

Make sure you’re taking CBD properly...

This does sound a little obvious, but many people first starting out by simply poping a few drops into their mouths and swallowing – This most certainly is not the most effective way of getting CBD into your body. The drops must be placed under the tongue and kept there for ideally 60-90 seconds. Also ensure you need to understand the CBD dose that’s right for you – It’s not one size fits all. Once you have these two basic but critical items in place, you can start experimenting...


Experiment with timings

Most packaging recommends taking 3-4 drops under the tongue 3 x times per day; however, many people actually prefer 5-6 drops twice daily in the morning and in the night before going to bed, because this is more easily incorporated into your routine (i.e. after brushing your teeth etc.). 

The morning dose of CBD can leave you feeling replenished, ready for the challenges of the day, whereas many people, particularly those with sleep problems, swear by a larger dose at night-time for a sound and restful sleep.


Pay attention to your schedule

Have a stressful meeting on the horizon, or anxious about venturing out to for a visit? Save one of your daily doses for 30 minutes before that event, many people attest to CBD for stage fright and confidence issues, a dose ahead of a stressful situation can really help.

Buy full spectrum products rather than CBD isolate

CBD is a powerful Cannabinoid but it’s not alone – “The Entourage Effect” of a full spectrum product is not to be underestimated. The entourage effect is directly related to the effectiveness of a variety of hemp extracts. More than 100 substances have been identified in the hemp plant. Although each has its therapeutic benefits, when combined they work synergistically to provide even better benefits than alone.

Be mindful of your body

Do you exercise on a regular basis? Or have a big fitness event on the horizon?  CBD can work wonders in muscle recovery – So taking your daily dose after exercise can help speed up the recovery process.

Try meditating following your CBD dose

We are all trying to be more mindful, and meditation is a process that we are now all familiar with to some degree. The process complements CBD beautifully, and when combined, CBDs ability to help centre your thoughts can boost your meditative experience.

Try yoga

Another complementary process, combining CBDs muscle and brain healing properties with yoga can leave you feeling revitalised following a gentle, or more rigorous yoga session.

Know your MGs from your %’s

Be mindful when shopping for CBD products, particularly if new to CBD, or choosing a new supplier. There are a vast range of products out there from both known and trusted brands to new and exciting suppliers. The quantity of CBD in these products also various enormously... Use our handy table as a guide. Beware of CBD Products when they do not show both the % and mgs of CBD.
