Wellness Rewind: How to Take Your Self-Care Routine to the Next Level with CBD
What You Need to Know: Here's 5 ways to add CBD into your wellness routine that is simple to implement and very effective.
The Big Picture: CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant that has been shown to be a great addition to your healthy lifestyle routine.
CBD is like vitamin C because you can’t take too much of it. And it will not get you high. When starting CBD, start with a low dose. And then gradually work your way up to find the right dosage for your body.
5 ways to Add CBD into your Wellness Routine
Sublingual administration: One of the easiest ways to use CBD tinctures is by placing the drops under your tongue. Since it is water soluble using Deeper Green technology, it absorbs almost immediately. This technology allows the CBD to absorb into your bloodstream more quickly and effectively.
Add to your favorite beverage: You can add CBD tinctures to your morning coffee, tea, smoothie, or any other beverage of your choice. This is a great option for those who do not like the taste of the tincture on its own.
Topical application: CBD tinctures can also be used topically to help with your body issues. Simply mix the tincture with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil and apply to the affected area.
Cooking with CBD: You can also incorporate CBD tinctures into your cooking and baking. Add a few drops to your favorite recipes to enjoy the benefits of CBD in a delicious way.
Bedtime routine: CBD tinctures can also be a great addition to your bedtime routine. Taking a dose before bed can help your relaxation routine and promote a restful night's sleep.
How to get the most out of CBD
The way to get the most out of CBD is to use it consistently. And sometimes that is easier said than done. Here are two ways to turn action and intention into a habit:
Consistency: The key to forming a habit is consistency. Doing the same action repeatedly at the same time every day can help it become a habit. Set a specific time and stick to it until the action becomes an automatic part of your routine.
Cue and reward: Another way to form a habit is to create a cue and a reward. For example, if you want to make a habit of going for a walk every day, you could use getting dressed as your cue. Once you're dressed, you go for your walk, and your reward could be a healthy breakfast or a cup of coffee. By consistently following this cue and reward system, the action of going for a walk will become a habit.
Is CBD legal? – Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made some hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3 percent THC federally legal. However, CBD products over 0.3 percent THC are illegal federally.
