You did your product research, you read all about what CBD is and what it can do for you, and your ordered yourself a bottle of Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD Oil Drops to get started. Great!
Trying to figure out how to use your CBD oil can feel like total options overload: there’s almost too much to choose from. No worries; we’re here to help. We’ve got 7 easy ways to incorporate CBD oil into some habits that are already part of your everyday routine. Try out one, a few, or all of them: the key to learning how CBD oil can work best for you is experimenting.
Suggested serving size is important, and there’s no one right answer on how much CBD is best for you. One dropper full from the tincture contains 10 mg of CBD, and four pumps of the spray contains 5 mg of CBD. Many people start out with one of these lower amounts then increase by 10 or 15 mg each day until they find what’s right for them. Try keeping a journal for 30 days and record your thoughts and feelings (both physical and mental!) as you test drive these different ways to use CBD oil.
1. PUT CBD OIL DROPS IN YOUR TEA OR COFFEE
There’s a lot of versatility with this idea – you’ll never get bored of trying new combinations! A hint of refreshing peppermint from our CBD Oil Drops or CBD Oil Spray is a great addition to hot or iced tea.
If coffee is your wake-me-up of choice, keep a bottle of unflavored CBD oil in your bag to add to your hot coffee in the autumn and winter or cold press in the spring and summer.
2. ADD CBD OIL DROPS TO SALAD DRESSING
Unflavored CBD oil fits right in next to your other cooking oils in the kitchen cabinet. If you regularly whip up lunchtime salads, adding a few drops to your regularly scheduled dressing is the perfect way to slip the goodness of CBD into your everyday habits with ease.
3. INCLUDE CBD OIL DROPS IN YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
You’re out of the shower and just kind of going through the moves – brush teeth, floss, rinse, facial toner, daily serum, moisturizer, SPF 30…CBD oil drops! Keep your Hemp Extract CBD Oil drops next to the sink in the bathroom as a reminder to hold some under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing for fast acting absorption.
4. USE CBD OIL SPRAY AS A MOMENT OF CALM BEFORE DAY-TO-DAY STRESSES
Headed out the door for a first date? Big job interview jitters? Stage fright because you’re an internationally-renowned opera singer and you have to perform for an audience of dignitaries? Yeah, we totally hear you there. Having peppermint CBD oil spray on hand offers you a moment of calm before life’s little storms. Take a few pumps from the spray bottle to give your endocannabinoid system a little kickstart promoting a calm, balanced mind.
5. MAKE CBD OIL PART OF YOUR YOGA PRACTICE
CBD oils are right at home as part of both your pre- and post-yoga practice routine. It’s hard to prepare for a calm, Zen experience if your mind is racing, and CBD can really allow your body and to unwind. Try incorporating some of Zoe Welch’s favorite ways to move and meditate for inspiration.
6. CREATE A CBD OIL MOCKTAIL
Treat yourself to a little post-work You Time with a CBD-infused mocktail. A few spritzes of peppermint CBD oil spray on a non-alcoholic mojito or gimlet can help ease you into your evening with calm and balance – all our CBD oils are non-intoxicating. There are SO many drink concoctions you could try!
7. BRING CBD OIL INTO YOUR NIGHTTIME SELF-CARE RITUAL
Bedtime rituals are a great way to wind down at night. CBD can help promote a restful sleep cycle, so adding it to your usual nighttime to-do’s is an obvious choice. Snuggle in under the covers and grab that CBD oil tincture on your bedside table. A dropper or two under the tongue as you settle in with your e-reader means that by the time you fall asleep, your brain is prepped for a great night of sleep.
The only person who can decide how much and what kind of CBD oil use is best for you; trust your body and trust your instincts, because you deserve to love the way you feel.
