What Are Ways to Include CBD into Your Daily Routine?Melissa Dugan
We are expected to do it all these days: somehow perfectly balance our work, home life, relationships and hobbies, as well as eat healthy, exercise, get 8 hours of restorative sleep, and carve out some “me time.” Oh, and don’t forget about volunteering and keeping up with the latest politics and social media trends. In this fast paced world where we seemingly go, go, go from the second we wake up in the morning until the moment our head hits the pillow at night, it can feel impossible to squeeze it all in. What more can we possibly add to our already full plates?
Since most of us are not expert multitaskers, and it can be difficult to stick to a strict routine due to the unpredictability of the day, something generally “has to give.” And what typically gets sacrificed first? Without a doubt, one’s self-care. There are many things we know we should do for our mental and physical health on a daily basis, but they seem to reside on the “back burner” unless they are easy and convenient and fit flawlessly into our already packed daily routine. It feels overwhelming to think about adding even one more thing. If this sounds like your dilemma, CBD might just become your new favorite, as it is highly effective and surprisingly easy to insert into any routine.
First off, it’s helpful to review what CBD is and its basic (yet amazing!) properties before diving into why it may be a welcomed addition to your life. The following is a quick snapshot of CBD (which stands for cannabidiol):
- It is a non-addictive, versatile molecule extracted from the hemp variety of the cannabis plant.
- It contains 0.3% or less THC and is completely legal thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill.
- It is one of over 100 cannabinoids present in the hemp plant that interact favorably with the human body (and the bodies of other mammals, too).
- It causes no mind-altering (psychoactive) effects.
- It has very few, if any, side effects – which are typically remedied with a slight adjustment to dosage – and the body does not appear to develop a tolerance to it.
- It quickly provides many noticeable benefits to the mind and body.
- It is extremely versatile and can be effectively used in everything from oral drops to topical balms to easy-to-swallow softgels and delightful edible treats.
Is CBD Really Something I Want to Add to My Routine?
Everyone’s personal health and wellness goals are different, but at Pharmstrong™, we encourage adding CBD to your daily routine. It’s not just “one more thing” to add to your already full plate. It is more of a “missing link” – that one small thing that can make a world of difference. Not only is CBD safe and effective, but it truly can fit seamlessly into just about any routine. At Pharmstrong™, we’ve come up with 5 easy ways to incorporate CBD into your day-to-day life:
- As a Morning Kick Off – Most of us need a little jolt of something, usually caffeine, in the morning to help give us the energy and mental clarity we crave to make it through the day. While a delightful cup of hot coffee or a refreshing energy drink are most people’s go-to’s, it is surprisingly just as easy to reach for an all-natural CBD product. One serving of refreshing mint or zesty citrus flavored CBD oral drops (such as these natural orange flavored drops), placed under the tongue, will quickly awaken the senses and get the mind and body going. CBD softgels also fit right into a morning routine, positively affecting energy levels for hours to come. Quickly swallow with water, or any other beverage, on your way out the door and you are minutes away from experiencing the many wonderful benefits of CBD.
- As Part of a Nightly Routine – Calming the mind and body in preparation for a restful night’s sleep can be a challenge to say the least. Nearly a third of adults struggle with getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep and, as a result, are desperate to find something that will help them with their sleep troubles. Check out our best tips for a rejuvenating night’s sleep here, but also consider incorporating a CBD product with melatonin into your nightly routine – such as the one offered in our popular and unique Pharmstrong™ Sleep Kit. Adding these perfectly paired products, which are scientifically-formulated blends of phytocannabinoid rich CBD and melatonin (a well known natural sleep aid), are quite the sleep-inducing pair. Simply take these Pure + Potent, and extremely effective, CBD products as the evening winds down and prepare to be amazed.
- As a Mini Travel Companion – Are you always on the go? Whether you travel for work, pleasure, or simply to seek the next epic outdoor adventure, CBD is a must-have travel accessory. Check out one of our personal favorites here.
- As Part of a Daily Self-Care Regimen – As mentioned above, self care often gets sacrificed when one’s schedule fills up and more pressing needs arise. That doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Nourishing your body with phytocannabinoid-rich CBD mixed with other beneficial ingredients can now happen in no time at all – and make a world of difference in your day-to-day life. CBD products created using nanoemulsion technology, like any number of our premium softgels, are especially easy to incorporate into any routine and have long-lasting effects.
- As a Sports Recovery Aid – Whether you are a world class athlete, or simply enjoy getting out and exploring nature, it’s important to give your fatigued muscles and joints some TLC after intense physical exertion. Most people already incorporate some type of supplement and/or self-care practice into their post-exercise routine, so CBD is often a logical and easy addition. Targeted relief is only minutes away when you apply a topical CBD infused balm, like the one in this Sport and Joint Kit, to the area in need.
Adding premium grade CBD into your daily routine doesn’t have to be complicated – nor do we want it to be. At Pharmstrong™ we’ve combined quality ingredients with advanced technology to create Pure + Potent, easy-to-use CBD products that are sure to be a welcomed addition to your day.
