CBD Health Benefits: Why Include CBD in Your Wellness Routine

Our bodies have a complex network of chemical signals and cellular receptors known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It’s responsible for regulating a host of biological functions, including mood, sleep, appetite, memory, and pain sensation. Though researchers are not clear exactly how, they believe that CBD binds to our ECS just like the natural endocannabinoids produced by our body, resulting in positive effects.

A good CBD wellness routine leverages the ECS to allow you to target and manage specific health conditions, as well as improve your overall well-being. Here are a few CBD health benefits you can expect from a wellness routine that incorporates CBD:

Helps Regulate Mood - A study conducted in 2020 emphasized the promising effects of CBD as an anxiolytic, antidepressant, and antipsychotic. It’s said to lower cortisol levels and elevate moods.

Insomnia - According to the CDC, 1 in every 3 adults doesn’t get enough sleep. A high-stress lifestyle is a major factor to blame. Several studies have concluded that a CBD wellness routine may be effective in lowering cortisol levels, resulting in lowered anxiety and restful sleep in some people.

Pain Relief - In 2005, Canada became the first country to approve the use of Sativex, a sublingual spray containing equal parts THC and CBD for the management of multiple sclerosis-related pain. A 2018 study also noted the promising effects of CBD for pain relief.

Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory - In many studies, CBD has shown promising results as a neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory agent. Many users include it in their post-workout CBD wellness routine for faster muscle recovery.

Digestive Aid - The anti-inflammatory health benefits of CBD has made it a popular solution for those suffering from digestive issues like IBS, colitis, and gastritis. Many people swear by CBD to aid digestion and prevent bloating.

Healthier Skin - The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD may contribute to healthier skin by reducing sebum production that leads to acne. CBD is also noted to possess the antibacterial and antifungal properties of the cannabis plant which can help with many skin conditions.

How to Create a CBD Wellness Routine in 4 Steps

To enjoy the full extent of CBD’s health benefits, you need to create a streamlined wellness routine that incorporates CBD without too many hoops. You need to have a clear vision in your head, a strong intention, and the motivation to follow through with the plans you’ve laid down for yourself. Follow these 4 simple steps to create an effective CBD wellness routine:

Step 1: Set a Clear Goal

Ask yourself — what are your goals? What do you hope to achieve by adding CBD to your routine? Do you want to target a specific health condition? Improve your daily performance? Or enhance your overall well-being? It’s only by having a clear goal that you can craftily weave CBD into your routine.

Step 2: Find Out Your Dosage

Every individual’s body is different and the same dose of CBD never works the same on two people. Depending on what your goals are, your dosage can vary a lot. But no matter what, always start small on your CBD wellness routine, beginning with the lowest dose possible. Take your time to build up to higher levels if you don’t see results right away. 

Consult your doctor to rule out any negative interactions with other medications you may be taking or how to address pre-existing medical conditions.

Step 3: Incorporate Into Your Daily Routine

CBD is perhaps the easiest natural remedy to include in your routine because it comes in so many types and forms! From topical gels and creams to gummies, flower, and softgels—there are many ways to build a CBD wellness routine with ease. Here are some of our tips to enjoy CBD health benefits:

  • Add a few drops of CBD oil to your morning beverage, whether it’s tea, coffee, juice, or water.
  • Use CBD bath bombs or wash up with a CBD-infused soap or shower gel.
  • Add a CBD-infused moisturizer to your skincare regimen.
  • Pop a few softgels before or after a workout for faster muscle recovery and pain relief.
  • Use a salve on sore muscles or on your face after cleansing.
  • Roll a joint with a CBD flower or smoke a preroll on lazy weekends.
  • Chew on a CBD gummy as a daytime snack.
  • Hosting a party? Add CBD to cocktails and snacks like brownies and cookies.

Step 4: Monitor Effects and Adjust if Needed

Tracking the results and effectiveness is a crucial step in any routine, including a CBD wellness routine. To know whether you’re actually enjoying all the potential CBD health benefits or not, it’s important to keep a wellness tracker and note down even the most minute changes in your health on a day-to-day basis. Have separate sections to track your mood and symptoms if you’re targeting something specific. If you feel like you’re not seeing any results, try adjusting your routine with small changes one at a time.

Tips to Enhance Your CBD Wellness Routine

Though all the information above is enough to get you started, there are a few more things you need to know to create a foolproof wellness routine that draws out the best that CBD has to offer:

1. Don’t Go Overboard

Stick to only a few products. Incorporate them slowly and track their effectiveness before moving on to another. Try adjusting the dose before you rule out a product as being ineffective.

2. Explore Different Delivery Methods

If you’re only taking sublingual CBD (non-digestive method), try edibles that stay in your system for a longer time. Try to use a mix of sublingual, edibles, and topicals for best results.

3. Full-Spectrum Vs. Broad-Spectrum Vs. Isolate

Go with full-spectrum for the most effective CBD wellness routine. Full-spectrum CBD products contain all the compounds present in the cannabis plant. All the cannabinoids and terpenes together are more potent than a CBD isolate or CBD with a few terpenes. This is known as the Entourage Effect. Broad-spectrum products lose out on the compounding CBD health benefits because they don’t contain the trace amount of THC that’s present in the original hemp plant.

4. Try Different Cultivars

Every cultivar is bred to have a specific set of effects on the body. Sativa is stimulating, Indica is sedating, and Hybrid is focusing. But despite this clear theoretical distinction, you may still not experience the same effects. So keep trying different cultivars until you find the right one for you. Also, instead of buying it online, try to extract your own CBD oil to add to your CBD wellness routine. This will narrow down your efforts.

5. Combine With Other Wellness Practices

CBD cannot offset a bad lifestyle. For a holistic wellness routine, you need to include healthy practices in every aspect of your life, from your morning drink to your bedtime routine. CBD is a wonderful companion for those who practice mindfulness, do yoga, and religiously work out. A good sleep schedule and diet are also non-negotiable in your CBD wellness routine if you want to experience the well-talked-about CBD health benefits yourself.
