For some, CBD products seem like a mysterious trend that require vast knowledge and training to understand and use. The truth is, it doesn’t take much to learn how to effectively use CBD – even if you’re completely new to it. As long as you have a basic understanding of what CBD is and adhere to label instructions, it is easy to start reaping the benefits of CBD right away.
Not only do you learn as you go with CBD, but it is also applicable to your daily routine. It is a total misconception that you must be following a “green” or “all-natural” lifestyle or have a deep knowledge of cannabis to be able to use CBD in your everyday life. CBD can easily be incorporated into things you already do every day.
For some ideas on how to incorporate CBD into your daily routine, read the suggestions below.
What is CBD?
First, a quick refresher on what CBD is.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the primary compounds in cannabis, which includes both hemp and marijuana. CBD does not cause a high or stoned feeling, like THC does, but instead promotes calm, helps provide better sleep, fights inflammation, and reduces pain.
CBD products derived from hemp legally contain 0.3% or less THC, and do not induce a high.

How to Incorporate CBD Into Your Daily Routine
CBD for Better Sleep
One of the best ways to incorporate CBD into your daily routine is a CBD tincture for sleep. For CBD beginners, we recommend taking CBD tincture for better sleep or calming nerves. Tinctures are taken sublingually (under the tongue) and are an easy way to consume the CBD molecules, thus calming an active brain. You can go about starting this routine by ordering a CBD tincture and following the serving instructions listed on the label. We recommend starting with the 300mg potency and working your way up to the 1200mg CBD tincture.
CBD to Start the Day Right
Start your day off with the best vibes possible by enjoying a CBD pre-roll in the morning. Begin by lighting the CBD pre-roll and taking a few small and fast puffs to get the joint started. Once the joint is lit, move on to taking heavier drags.
The best thing about CBD pre-rolls is they are already rolled for you, so there is no work. They also do not leave you foggy-headed or impaired, just relaxed. They’re the perfect stress-buster with which to start your day.
CBD and Breakfast
Our CBD tincture is made with lipid extraction and is water-soluble, so it can be added to liquid. Add a dropper of CBD tincture to your morning cereal for a boost of relaxation. Mornings are often hectic for many people, so why not slow things down with a bowl of CBD cereal?
Need that morning cup (or several) of joe before you can focus? Add CBD tincture to your coffee for an uplifting, yet relaxing start to your day.

Moisturize With CBD
After your shower, moisturize your skin with healing CBD body butter. Once you’ve taken your shower or bath, pat your body down with a towel to dry off. This will leave your skin slightly damp, which will help with the moisturization.
Next, apply a generous amount of body butter directly to your skin and gently massage in, using a circular motion until all of it is absorbed. Try to avoid using too much body butter at once and remember you can always put more on if your skin needs extra moisturization later on throughout the day.
When applying the CBD body butter, pay attention to dry areas like your knees, elbows, hands, and feet. These are all areas prone to dryness, so they will benefit greatly from a layer of CBD body butter.
Relieve Mid-Day Tension With CBD Roll-Ons
You can’t always carry around a jar of CBD topical balm with you, and sometimes need something a bit more portable. That’s where CBD roll-ons come in handy. Pocket-sized and scented with essential oils, these pain-relieving roll-ons are the perfect choice for localized pain when you’re on the go.
Simply roll the CBD oil onto the area with pain and gently massage the oil into your skin.
Alleviate Evening Aches and Pains
When daytime distractions are eliminated, you are able to feel pain more, which is often why pain feels worse at night. There is also the fact you spent the day doing things, moving around, and stretching. If you already have an existing painful condition, daily activities can exacerbate the pain.
To help you unwind at night and prepare for bed, use CBD topical balm on painful areas. Apply the topical balm to the affected area and gently massage into the skin.
Smoke the Stress Away
The stresses of the day can all come slamming together at once now that it’s evening and you have time to sit and reflect on the day. Relieve that stress by packing a bowl of some CBD hemp flower. Inhalation is the fastest way to reap the benefits of CBD, as the effects are typically felt right away. By smoking hemp flower on the daily, you’ll find it easy to incorporate CBD into your daily routine.
CBD can be used in a variety of ways. Its use depends on your needs – do you want to relax or do you need to alleviate pain? A good place to start is our blog. Be sure to take note of how each type of CBD product is used, as some are used externally and others are used internally. Follow the directions on the label, consider your individual reactions, and watch for any side effects.
A few things to keep in mind about CBD products if you want to start using them:
- Always buy your CBD products from a reputable brand to get the highest possible quality and reap all the benefits of CBD. Poor quality CBD products are made with less potent CBD oil and may contain synthetic fragrances.
- CBD tinctures come in proper packaging, usually in a dark green or brown bottle. Store them in a cool, dry, and dark place.
- Be vigilant when buying products, as you want to be sure you are buying CBD oil and not hemp oil. CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same, and hemp oil does not have the same benefits as CBD oil. Hemp oil does not contain CBD.
- Look for full-spectrum CBD products, as these will provide the most benefits. They contain all of the phytonutrients, flavonoids, and cannabinoids contained within the hemp plant.
