Introducing CBD into your everyday routine
Learning more about CBD
As CBD continues to become a part of everyday life for people across the globe (recent estimates put active UK users at 1.3 million), we’re understanding its range of applications more and more. The most significant finding? That CBD isn’t a simple supplement, but something that works with users at every stage of their daily routine.
Almost everyone in our office now uses CBD in several different forms throughout the day due to its versatility, but this isn’t just about our team of CBD fanatics. We’ve also spoken to a wide spread of our consumers and found that the majority prefer to use CBD via different methods at different junctures throughout the day.
So how do you make CBD part of your day-to-day routine? And what form of CBD is right for which occasion? We’ve put together a comprehensive guide of how each of our CBD products has been designed for use at optimal points, whether situational or at a certain time. First though, let’s discuss why CBD isn’t necessarily pinned to a time or place.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 compounds known as cannabinoids that have so far been discovered in the hemp plant. The most famous of these is THC, the compound that gets cannabis users high. Meanwhile, CBD, the second most prevalent cannabinoid, has no psychotropic properties whatsoever.
Why do people use CBD then? Well it's all to do with how it interacts with our biology. The human body already produces cannabinoids itself, including a chemical called 2-AG that is a direct mirror of CBD. Despite the fact that cannabinoids are named after cannabis (where they were first discovered) the endocannabinoid system is incredibly prevalent, being found in the nervous system, immune system and most major organs.
The reason CBD is so applicable to all parts of your daily routine is because it doesn’t have a set series of properties. Instead, it promotes homeostasis throughout the body, otherwise known as balance. Rather than acting as an outside contaminant, CBD indirectly stimulates the production of cannabinoids the body already synthesises. That’s why we consider CBD the natural choice.
Now you know why CBD’s promotion of balance makes it usable at various points throughout the day, let’s get into what products best suit what time. We’ll provide a simple walkthrough of our entire range using an easy-to-understand timeline that you can map onto your own everyday life.
Early morning riser
CBD has a reputation for being used before bed, but that’s really not the case. In fact, using it first thing in the morning is a great way to ensure you have a consistent dosage throughout the day, and that CBD is acting as a consistent support for the endocannabinoid system.
What product works best in this instance then? From our core range, we’d use our CBD Oral Spray right after getting out of bed. Since it’s light and easy to apply, the spray atomiser makes it a fresh way to start your morning. We’d recommend the berry flavour for an extra-added juicy flavour.
Once you’ve showered and cleared your head, we’d suggest using the CBD Skin Cream. It’s not just a great way to deliver CBD, it’s also a great cosmetic product in its own right. Our formulation includes a unique and potent blend of moisturising ingredients, ensuring your skin will be left feeling rejuvenated for the day ahead.
On the go
You’ve had your morning dosage, and now it’s time to leave the house. For on-the-go, we’d recommend our CBD Oral Spray again, because of the easy action of its spray applicator. It’s perfect for popping out for a quick few sprays on the walk to your train, or after getting out of the car on your drive to work.
Vaping is ideal for being on-the-go too, but it’s better when you’re at rest. Whether you’re sat working in a vape-friendly office, or outside a café enjoying a hot drink, our entire range of CBD e-liquids are great for having a quick dose in a variety of situations.
Which e-liquid though?
Well if you want the premium CBD experience, the obvious choice is our Whole Plant E-liquid, which includes additional cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, waxes and oils for a complete hemp experience. If you want a lighter vape, then our Full Spectrum E-liquid does away with the waxes, and adds two tasty fruity flavours.
We’ve also launched a range of CBD isolates. With a lower dosage, and none of the cannabinoids found in the other two, they’re a light and simple way to take CBD. They come in six delicious flavours too, meaning they’re perfect for first time CBD vapers.
Not a vaper? Then you might want to consider a CBD Oral Spray as an easy alternative instead. We’re proud of our provenly safe e-liquids, so if you're unsure why not check out our articles on our core e-liquids, or our CBD isolates?
You’ve made it home, and it’s time to put your feet up. But first, why not use some Oral Drops? Using a more traditional pipette than our spray, they’re not perfect for when you’re dashing about, but they’re a great staple to have on hand in the home.
Rather than a light spray, Oral Drops give a far fuller taste experience thanks to the rich hemp seed oil. Apply it under the tongue in the same way, and enjoy either our fully natural hemp flavour, our lemon citrus-blast, or our fan-favourite berry. There are plenty of potential favourite flavours to try!
After a long day, our favourite option before bed is our CBD Muscle Balm. Simply apply our fragrant blend of organic essential oils and CBD to the desired areas, either by yourself or even as part of a massage. Since CBD is so versatile, you can really use CBD in any way you choose.
We've got plenty more new products planned on the horizon too, each one with an important role in your day-to-day life. Keep an eye out for our future product developments for even more ways to incorporate CBD day-to-day.
Making your own timeline
Of course, you don’t need all of our products to build your own CBD daily routine. The joy of CBD is that you can take it as much or as little as you want, and use five different products throughout the day, or just one. It’s all about finding what the right balance is for you.
The main purpose of this piece is to encourage you to experiment with your methods and your dosage. Try taking it first thing in the morning, and try taking it in the middle of the day. Try doing all of your daily dosage in two sets of drops, and try spacing it out by vaping throughout the day. That's the best way to reach your CBD potential.
Buying every single product in our range isn’t always practical, so why not check out our favourite product combinations? That way you can begin to build your own comprehensive CBD daily routine even more easily.
