CBD products can be used to help you feel your best in a multitude of ways — from equipping you to combat the everyday stress of life to helping you sleep better, and even providing a boost to your sex life. Though more research is still needed, there are many anecdotal accounts from CBD users who have experienced benefits from regular usage.
But how can you incorporate daily CBD products into your routine? Here, we break down how to use CBD to achieve a variety of benefits.
For a Better Night’s Sleep
If you’re regularly not getting the sleep you need — whether in quantity or quality — CBD may be able to help. For example, a 2019 study found that cannabidiol improved sleep in 66.7% of participants. Interestingly, CBD may address some of the possible causes of poor sleep, such as anxiety and discomfort, with the knock-on effect of helping you sleep more soundly. At lower doses, CBD oil like SHEbd’s CBD-rich Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil (which also features a host of beneficial terpenes and flavonoids) is great for helping you feel more focused and less groggy throughout the day, whereas taking more of it can make you feel sleepy. If you’re looking to improve your sleep, it’s best to take a little oil in the morning and a bit more of it about an hour before bed.
To Regulate Your Mood
Whether you’re feeling groggy, stressed, demotivated or just a little down, CBD can help lift your spirits when you take it daily. It can make you feel calmer and generally put you in a better mood. To keep yourself in a positive state of mind, take a CBD-rich hemp softgel capsule in the morning as part of your routine, then another about 30 minutes before bed. Depending on how you feel, you could complement this with some CBD oil as well. As with every use of CBD, start with a small dose, then slowly increase it if you feel you need more of a boost.
To Support Your Active Lifestyle
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that are thought to help provide relief for aching muscles and joints. That’s why if you’re an athlete or just love working out, it could benefit you to take a hemp softgel capsule every morning and every evening to help you fight sore muscles from lots of exercise. You could also keep a soothing tube of SHEbd’s CBD-rich Hemp Comfort Cream on hand to spot-treat throughout your day.
To Soothe Irritated Skin
In addition to working within your body to help restore balance, CBD can also help you deal when your skin is misbehaving. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects, CBD-rich hemp balm offers relief from general itchiness and irritation. Bonus: you can also use it to help heal chapped lips and nourish cuticles.
Similarly, using a hemp sheet mask two to three times a week can help you soothe oily, dry and sensitive skin and promote a natural, clear glow. Not to mention it’s a precious mindful moment of self-care.
Whatever the benefits you’re looking for, CBD health and wellness products can fit seamlessly into your daily life and help you feel more energized and balanced. SHEbd carries THC-free broad spectrum hemp oil products, which combine the best of CBD with the other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in hemp, in five handy formats, so you can adapt your usage in whichever way works best for you.
