We’ve covered ‘the what’, ‘the why’ and ‘the how’ when it comes to CBD. Up next: ‘the when’. At what time of day should you be taking your daily dose? All the answers are here, from how to time your CBD intake for maximum impact, to how it works in the morning vs. evening. Read on for the complete guide…
So, When Should You Take CBD?
Taking CBD supplements as part of your daily routine is simple when you’ve got a consistent schedule going, but adding on-the-go dosage is easy with quick to take formats like CBD gummies and CBD capsules on the rise. There's no right or wrong time to take CBD; it's unique to each individual and their preferences.
How Long it Takes to Feel CBD Effects
Each CBD food supplement has different onset times by product, depending on the format, so you can time your dosage perfectly. As a general rule, CBD oils act faster than CBD capsules or edibles such as CBD Gummies, and the timings vary from one brand to the next.
Here’s your easy onset guide for the Cannaray collection:
CBD Oil Drops (Bright Days or Night Time): 30 minutes – meaning you should take a dropper (or two if you are using our 10ml bottles) of oil around half an hour before you want the CBD to absorb.
Keep Your CBD Dosage Consistent
‘Start low, go slow, and keep consistent’ is our mantra when it comes to CBD dosage. We help you track your experience and keep your daily CBD consistent with our 7-Day CBD Diary.
Take CBD in the Morning If…
You Tend to Save Your Supplements For the AM
Don’t break your routine; taking CBD alongside your daily multivitamin will help you turn that daily dropper of oil or capsule into a morning ritual. Basically, what we’re saying is this: if you take your supplements alongside your AM coffee, adding CBD to that line-up will make it much easier to remember. (That’s half the battle, right?)
You’re Due Some Self-Care
It’s all about that moment of self-care in a busy day. That second where you go ‘but first, let me take CBD’. Hit pause mid morning and squeeze a dropper of oil underneath your tongue. We’ve been taking the CBD Bright Days Oil Drops between Zoom calls; the zesty citrus flavour acts as a delicious pick-me-up.
You’re Warming Up For a Workout
If you’re an early-rising runner or a crack-of-dawn yogi, you might find that giving yourself a (quick) morning massage helps your muscles loosen up much quicker. A speedy pre-workout rub-down is said to limber you up, so you’re ready to go. Try it with a scoopful of the CBD Muscle Balm, working it into any tight muscles.
Take CBD in the Evening If…
You Need to Massage Away End-of-Day Aches
Because the busy day struggle is real; trying giving yourself a massage in the evening. Warm the CBD Muscle Balm in between palms, then rub it into anywhere you’re feeling tension. This might be the back of your neck, your shoulders or even over-typed hands. The relaxing scent of eucalyptus in the balm will help you to recentre in no time.
You're Starting Your Wind-Down
Laptop closed, work done – what next? Try taking CBD as soon as the daily grind is over as part of your self-care routine. Try it for yourself any time of day – evening included. We’re big fans of a peppermint-fresh dropper of the Night Time CBD Oil Drops once 6pm hits.
