5 Ways To Maximize Your CBD Experience at Work

Interested in improving your current CBD experience or making the most out of a new one? You’re in the right place! Here, we’re taking a closer look at how CBD improves our daily lives and how we can use it more effectively to do so. 

From choosing the right products to combining CBD with your current health habits, these five tips will help you maximize your CBD experience and get the most value for your money.

1. Choose Only High-Quality Products

First and foremost, if you want to make the most of your CBD experience, you absolutely must choose only the highest-quality products on the market. Don’t settle for sub-par providers when so many excellent brands are out there. 

You can shop for CBD oil now on dozens of sites across the web; all of which can offer you amazing products. The CBD you’ll find at your local gas station probably doesn’t meet half of the quality standards these brands offer, so you’ll just be wasting your money. 

The higher the quality of the CBD oil, the more potent it will be. Would you rather pay $30 for something that wears off in an hour or $30 for something that can last several hours and have noticeable effects? It’s a simple choice, really. 

2. Combine CBD With Your Current Health Habits

New CBD users think that all they need to do is use CBD for it to improve their lives, and while it certainly does carry its own weight, it’s best to combine it with your current health habits (or create new ones) for the best results. 

For instance, if you’re taking it for anxiety relief, you’ll want to practice anxiety management and stress-relief habits as well.

While CBD might offer many benefits, it’s certainly not a cure-all. It’s a great supplement for things like pain management, anxiety relief, and even improving your sleep, but it can’t do everything on its own!

When you first start taking CBD, it will probably take a few weeks’ time for the effects to become noticeable. Most users report feeling the effects after about 1-3 weeks of regular doses. Try to be consistent as possible with your doses to maximize the benefits of your CBD regimen. 

3. Use It After Your Workout

There are a few reasons to use CBD directly after your workout, not the least of which is because CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the soreness that your muscles feel. 

According to Penguin CBD, when you exercise, you tear your muscle fibers microscopically, but even such tiny tears cause pain and inflammation while they’re healing.

When you exercise, you’re getting your blood pumping through your body, making it the perfect time to take your CBD. Increased blood flow will help the compound’s delivery to the nervous system, and may increase the effectiveness of the dose (though this hasn’t been studied in great detail). 

Athletes and casual gym-goers can both benefit from CBD after a workout. It will help your recovery, keep your pain levels down, and allow for increased focus and mental clarity after a workout. 

With CBD’s anti-anxiety effects, you’ll feel calmer and less stressed out if you don’t meet a goal or miss a milestone. Remember to take it slow, one workout at a time, and focus on where you want to be! You’ll get there! 

4. Choose The Right Delivery Method 

How you take your CBD will affect your individual experience as well. There are several ways to get a dose of CBD, including:

Topicals: these are applied directly to the skin. This includes oils, lotions, salves, and creams. CBD-based topicals are said to help keep the skin looking and feeling healthy, help treat conditions like acne and psoriasis, and may even have anti-aging properties. 

Gummies: this method is certainly the tastiest and most fun way to get your CBD. Who doesn’t love a CBD gummy bear or gummy worm? When you ingest CBD, it passes through the digestive system, which means it’s going to take at least one to two hours or longer to take effect. 

That’s not to say gummies aren’t effective, they just take a little longer to kick in. They do seem to last longer, however. 

Oils: CBD oil is one of the most popular methods of getting CBD. Oils can be taken under the tongue, rubbed on the skin, put in favorite recipes, or included in your favorite drinks and smoothies. The versatility of oils makes them the preferred method of delivery for new and seasoned users alike. 

Capsules: For people who don’t care for gummies and don’t want to mess with oils, capsules are available. These concentrated doses of CBD are potent, and while they offer a great way to get CBD, they also take a while to kick in, since they’ll also pass through the digestive tract. 

A good place to start is with oils. If you find they’re not quite doing it for you, move to an edible. If you only need your CBD for localized pain or relaxation, topicals are the way to go. 

5. Take It Before Bed For Better Sleep 

CBD can help you fall asleep and stay asleep by relaxing the body and the mind. Anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, and anti-anxiety properties make CBD products the perfect pre-bedtime supplements. 

Thousands of CBD users trust their topicals or oils to help them sleep better, and some companies even produce specialized bedtime formulas, which include other herbs and compounds like melatonin and lavender for further relaxation. 

The Take-Away

These five tips will help you make the most out of your CBD experience, whether you’re new to CBD or you’ve been using it for years. These tips only apply to broad-spectrum products, as full-spectrum products contain THC and are also illegal.
Be sure to make the quality of the CBD you purchase your highest priority, not only to maximize your experience, but also to help control the market with your money! As an unregulated industry, CBD doesn’t have any specific standards to adhere to except the ones set by consumers and the brands that produce your CBD products.
