Many people who have not used CBD before ask when to take it? Often what they mean is the best time of day to take it. Well, to answer this question, it is essential to start by saying that it depends on many factors. For instance, why are you taking CBD? What desired effect do you hope to experience from taking it? And in what form are you taking it?
Honestly, finding the best time your body will respond to CBD varies from one person to the next. So, there is a bit of experimenting involved. That’s why you will want to use it for 3-4 weeks to explore its effects. Sure, it isn’t an exact science, but there are ways to find what will be best for you.
In this article, we’ll explore how to find the best time to take your dose of CBD.
Why Are You Taking It?
When you are trying to figure out the best time to take CBD, you will want to start with understanding why you are taking it. A friend or family member might have recommended CBD oil or tincture, or maybe you read about it online. Regardless, think about what you want to achieve from taking it?
For instance, many people like taking some CBD to wind down after a hard day’s work or to decrease work-related stress. If that’s why you are taking it, then a few drops after dinner and right before bed works best. If you perhaps want to boost the feeling of wellbeing, try adding it to your daily morning coffee. If you have an important meeting, eating a couple CBD gummies can help calm you down, or if you’re sore after a yoga session, you can use a topical CBD to relieve aches and pains.
Your Choice of CBD?
As mentioned earlier, what form you’ve decided to take CBD in will affect what time of day to take it. Here are a few common types of CBD:
CBD Oil Tinctures
CBD oil tinctures continue to be one of the most popular ways to ingest CBD since they have a more immediate effect. The body quickly absorbs tinctures via the endocannabinoid system. Most of our customers will take our Chill Pill CBD Tincture at night to have a good night’s sleep. A recent study by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health reported that a good night’s sleep is imperative to optimal cognitive function and responsible for good health.
Many people may decide to take CBD tinctures in the morning or sometime in the afternoon. Adding a few drops to your daily coffee may be enough. People who take CBD with their daily dose of caffeine swear by its ability to balance out the adverse effects of coffee. Also, a fair bit of research shows that taking CBD first thing the morning on an empty stomach ensures that it works faster.
Many people may not know this, but our skin has cannabinoid receptors. That means if you rub it (CBD) into the affected part of your body after extraneous exercise, it can help with muscle soreness and other types of muscular pain. Many athletes rub it into their bodies first thing in the morning before going to the gym to mitigate inflammation or right after a workout to alleviate soreness. Our Muscle Magic relief salve is the perfect CBD topical to get the job done!
Many people also take CBD edibles, especially if they want to benefit from a sweet treat craving or midday snack. Like CBD tinctures, edibles are ingested into the digestive system and can work quickly – depending on your dose, body type, and desired effect. CBD edibles can be taken at any time of the day, but we prefer to use our Mommy Candy CBD gummies and Mom of the Year CBD fruit chews as a midday snack or a long stressful day of work, kids, school or all of the above!
Amount of CBD
Another thing to consider when trying to find the best time to take CBD is how much you’re taking. Don’t be afraid to experiment a bit to find the right amount. You will want to start with a low dose and gradually increase it.
For instance, start with 250mg, which is a small dose, then gradually increase it to 500mg and 1000mg. Once you start seeing effects and think this is what you want, continue taking that dose daily. You can also take CBD throughout the day, which means you don’t have to only take it first thing in the morning and later at night. It is pretty common for people to take CBD three times a day.
Why Should You Take CBD Daily and Consistently?
Everyone is different, and so our bodies metabolize CBD differently. However, the key is to be consistent to see results. Many people taking CBD for the first time will only take one dose before stating it does not work and giving up. That is not how it works; that’s not even how vitamin-D supplements work. You will not see immediate results with supplements, especially not with CBD, except for drugs.
If you decide to take CBD three times a day, make sure you continue taking it three times a day for several weeks to know if it works. Not to mention CBD, in general, is healthy, which means that if you’re sourcing it from a reputed seller like us, then you don’t have to worry about it having any adverse effects from unknown compounds in the product.
Conclusion: Developing a CBD Routine
Now that you have figured out what desired effect you want and the type of CBD to take, the next step is to develop a regular dosage routine. The routine may include maybe taking CBD once a day or multiple times, depending on the effect you want to experience.
The use of CBD tends to vary, from people who want to be calmer to those who want a better night’s sleep. It is also an excellent skin moisturizer – like our Get Glow CBD body oil.
For example you can take half a dropper of Chill Pill in the morning and a half at night and evening. If you don’t enjoy the effects as much during a given part of the day, change the routine to maybe once before going to bed. Remember, it’s all about how your body reacts and what your desired effect is. The exact answer to when to take CBD is entirely up to what works for you. Are you ready to try out SuperMom CBD?
