CBD has become an extremely popular product in the health and wellness industry.
The reason it has become so popular is that it is completely natural, has little to no side effects, and it can be used to treat, maintain and improve a number of mental and physical health conditions, making it a versatile product.
Most people who try CBD have reported the benefits of the natural plant extract and have started to look into new ways to incorporate it into their diet and lifestyle, especially if they require higher doses throughout the day and/or don’t enjoy the taste of the oil.
Today, we will be taking a look into 5 unique ways to get your daily dose of CBD.
Experiment with Different Flavors
Taking CBD in oil form has many benefits. As we mentioned previously, CBD is completely natural. It is extracted directly from the hemp plant, so it should be no surprise that it has a grassy or herbal taste.
If you struggle to consume your daily dose of CBD every day because you don’t like the taste, then you should look into flavored CBD oils or mix it into a tasty meal.
Enjoy the Occasional Edible
CBD edibles are foods infused with cannabinoids. Some have a trace amount of THC, the ingredient that gives users the characteristic ‘high’ cannabis is known for, but most only contain CBD.
It’s worth pointing out that to be legal, CBD edibles must contain 0.2% THC or less. Always check this before you buy, and to stay on the right side of the law, stick to reputable suppliers.
Adding CBD to your dinner menu is a great way to cover up the taste of CBD and get it into your system.
However, this requires preparation and can take up valuable time. If you enjoy eating CBD and have a sweet tooth, then you should treat yourself to the occasional edible.
These usually come in a chocolate bar or candy form, but they are perfect to enjoy on special occasions.
CBD gummies are extremely popular. They are candy with a nice CBD infusion extracted from hemp. There are many different sorts of CBD gummies available.
If you want to try gummies with an unusual flavor, look for CBD gummies with extra turmeric.
Mix It into Drinks
If cooking with CBD isn’t your thing, then you should look into consuming it through beverages.
If you like to drink a coffee in the morning to wake you up for the day ahead, then you should look into buying some CBD infused coffee beans.
If you aren’t a fan of hot drinks or you need something refreshing, then you should crack open a can of sparkling CBD water to quench your thirst.
There are other CBD drinks available, such as juice infused with CBD. However, CBD drinks are less effective than other methods of taking CBD because the active ingredient is fat-soluble, so it won’t dissolve in water or other juice.
Instead, it’s more likely to stick to the bottle. Also, CBD is vulnerable to sun exposure and a clear plastic bottle left in the sun will harm the shelf life of any CBD contained therein.
Be careful if you decide to try CBD beer. It might sound like an awesome idea to mix CBD and your favorite beverage, but the experts say mixing CBD with alcohol can be dangerous.
It’s rather like mixing painkillers and alcohol – both are processed by the liver, which can lead to nasty side effects.
CBD shots added to drinks are another way of enjoying some extra CBD. This can be more effective than infused drinks, as CBD is less stable in large volumes of liquid.
If you decide to try a CBD shot in your coffee, check how pure the shot is. A higher purity is more effective.
Try CBD Protein Powder
If you choose to mix your protein powder with CBD, then you will see all the benefits of muscle growth and repair, plus more. You can either add the oil yourself, or you can purchase ready-made CBD infused protein powder.
Add CBD protein powder to your post-workout recovery drink or snack to ease inflammation and promote active muscle recovery.
CBD paste, like drops, is taken sublingually, which basically means under the tongue.
This means the active ingredient is transferred very quickly into the bloodstream and avoids any problems caused by intestinal disruption.
You only need a very small amount of CBD paste to get the desired effect. Pop a bit on your finger and rub it under your tongue. Hold in place for a minute or two and then swallow.
Use CBD Skincare Products
Applying CBD directly to your skin will not give you the same full-body results as consuming it, but it can benefit your skin in many ways.
CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can make it a great treatment for acne or blemish-prone skin.
Luckily, there are loads of CBD skincare products to choose from, including skin oils, moisturizers, hair masks and face masks, brow setters, and more.
Topical balms containing CBD are very relaxing. Apply the product to the affected area and your skin will thank you.
CBD balms usually contain Vitamin E, coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, lavender essential oil, beeswax, and other natural ingredients. This means they are safe and non-toxic, so you can use them without any side effects.
If you have sensitive skin and you are not sure if this will work for you, then you should look into purchasing mini travel versions of the desired product.
Finding new ways to get your daily dose of CBD can be a challenge, but once you find something that works for you, topping up your CBD will become easier than ever before.
