One of the most popular questions that we receive. Is there a time of day that is optimal? Should I take it right before sleeping?
Since we all react differently to CBD, it is important to test different times of the day and see which one works best for you.
First timers to CBD will probably want to take it late afternoon or early evening since it can make you tired and sleepy the first few times you try CBD.
For some people CBD gives them energy and focus which keeps them awake. If that's you, then take it in the morning.
If you are using it for anxiety or stress, definitely take it in the morning so that you can have a calmer day. If you tend to get stressed in the afternoon, don't wait till the last minute to take CBD, try taking it 2 hours before you anticipate stress.
The full effects of CBD remain for approximately 4-12 hours. How long a serving affects you depends on several variables, including on the mg of CBD you ingested, your method of consumption, as well as your body fat percentage and total body size. With this in mind, some users prefer to take a serving of CBD 2-3 times throughout the day so that they’re able to obtain sustained CBD level in their systems.
There are many potential reasons why you or your physician may determine that CBD is a beneficial option. CBD interacts with the body through the endocannabinoid system, a signaling network responsible for regulating functions like appetite, mood, sleep, pain management, and immune response. When absorbed by the body, CBD can augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, increasing the endocannabinoid system’s ability to promote balance. Studies have found these balancing effects may be beneficial for inhibiting seizure activity, reducing anxiety levels, managing pain, and protecting the health of neurons.
How often you should take CBD depends on your health needs and how deficient you are of endocannabinoids. Most find that consistently taking CBD at least once per day provides the best benefit. CBD can build up in the body, stimulating an increase in cannabinoid receptors to make the endocannabinoid system more effective. In other words, supplementing the endocannabinoid system with CBD every single day may potentially increase the beneficial impact of the natural compound.
