CBD for Daytime and Nighttime Routines
Mon, Feb 21, 2022 | Reading Time: 4 minutes
CBD is unique in many ways. Just think: not many supplements can be taken for all the reasons it can!
Nor can many supplements be taken at any time of the day or night. CBD can be used during the daytime to energize and awaken…and it can be used during the evening hours to relax and unwind. Here’s a closer look at how to take CBD to experience the best of both worlds.

What is energy?
We are always looking for new ways to gain 'energy,' but what exactly does that include, and why are there so many people looking for it? The answers to these questions depend a whole lot on the people you ask.
We are mostly looking for a means to adjust to the 24-hour, seven-day-a-week marathon that has become our usual way of life. We are searching for ways to do more, whether it is due to a lack of sleep, heavy workload, juggling competing objectives, or simply seeking a sense of serenity in the darkest of times. And without sufficient energy, we can't do that.
“What could be more important to understand than biological energy? Thought, growth, movement, every philosophical and practical issue involves the nature of biological energy.”
Ray Peat, Ph.D. endocrinologist
Why Is Energy so Important?
Energy is important for everything, including your career, hobbies, and family time on the most basic level possible.
Even non-living things, such as vehicles, require energy. Your car will soon stop working if you do not provide it with fuel. Similarly, the more energy flowing through us, the better our cells, muscles, organs, and minds can arrange themselves to stay in balance with each other.
Energy is required to generate enzymes, tighten and move muscles, and transfer electrical impulses between cells as we go deeper into the human body. So, everything in society requires energy, from driving to television viewing to keeping houses and businesses illuminated with artificial light.
Many individuals are unaware that the human brain consumes a significant amount of energy. Professional chess players, for example, can expand up to 6,000 calories per day during their tournaments. This demonstrates that mental activity requires nearly as much energy as physical activity. 
Ways CBD Could Energize Your Day
Starting the day can be difficult whether you are a morning person or not. Your morning routine may have also altered in today's environment, adding to your stress.
Everyone is seeking a method to beat the morning traffic and get their day off to a better start. So, including CBD in your morning routine could be the answer you've been looking for.
1. Acts as a Natural Pick-Me-Up
CBD products are becoming increasingly popular to treat a variety of ailments. However, as researchers learn more about CBD's benefits and the way an endocannabinoid system works, some feel it could provide an energy boost and serve as a safe, natural stimulant.
You've heard many stories about how CBD can help you relax and sleep better, but you've probably heard less about how CBD can help you stay awake. CBD's link to enhanced energy and focus is too wonderful to pass up. According to many studies, CBD may act as the natural boost you've been seeking.
CBD, unlike coffee, does not invigorate you by pumping caffeine into your body. Instead, CBD is supposed to support the parts of your brain that keep you vibrant and attentive when you need it, without the negative side effects of coffee. CBD stimulates neurons in the parts of the brain that control attentiveness. 
In short, CBD's actions on your body produce an all-natural, long-lasting surge of energy that is also healthy for you.
2. Boosts Your Mitochondria
Only lately have scientists found that our energy-producing mitochondria have cannabinoid receptors.  CBD has been demonstrated to protect these organelles, implying that it is a mitochondria-targeting medication that significantly improves mitochondrial activity and bioenergetics, exhibiting substantial protection against pathological situations.
3. Increases Motivation
CBD doesn't just help you stay awake, it can also boost motivation by calming you down and provide you increased clarity of mind by quieting the hectic, unproductive ideas that whirl around in your head.
What's the result? You'll be better able to focus on your checklists and less likely to get distracted by social media or too much sleep.
Ways CBD Could Relax Your Night
According to FDA data, 39% of all CBD users are using the product to help them sleep better. So far, it's working. "Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD has made a great deal of difference," says CBD expert Stuart Titus. 
While more research is needed to understand how CBD influences sleep patterns fully, initial clinical trials suggest that it makes getting to sleep easier by calming the mind.
A long-term study of sleep quality assessed CBD actions using a common self-report instrument found a modest improvement in sleep and more patients with improved sleep compared to poorer sleep.
Sleeping better may be as simple as taking a single gummy roughly one hour before bed. If you don't feel much from that, you can always increase your dose slowly over time.
