How To Start Your Mornings With CBD

Mon, Feb 14, 2022 | Reading Time: 4 minutes

Is getting up in the morning a little harder than it used to be? Does it take several cups of coffee before you’re able to communicate with others? Do you find yourself slipping into a cycle of staying up and waking up later and later?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, it could be time to reconsider your morning routine — and maybe consider throwing some CBD into the mix.

Why a good morning = a good day

We humans have known about the delicate balance between rest and work for eons now. Life becomes pretty dull when one works too much and rests too little. And guess what? Staying well rested doesn’t begin in the evening…it begins in the morning. That is why you need a good morning routine. 

Virtually every super-successful person throughout history had a morning routine that was distinctly their own. [1] While life isn’t all about being super-successful, it is about finding what works for you. 

And so far CBD has been working pretty well for people who want to start their morning off right — but more on that next.  

3 ways to use CBD to supercharge your morning

Any good morning routine should be grounding, focused, and energizing. It turns out that CBD checks these boxes with ease! If you want to incorporate it into your morning routine, consider trying any of the following three things. 

CBD ‘bulletproof’ coffee 

First there was coffee, and then ‘bulletproof’ coffee infused with energizing MCT oil came along. 

But things get even better if you add some CBD oil into the mix. Some research shows that CBD may balance out caffeine’s effect on adenosine receptors; in theory this could allow CBD to make coffee less jittery. Another thing: CBD is fat-soluble, so taking it with the healthy fats in bulletproof coffee could help it get fully absorbed. [2]


CBD Oil in Your Skincare Routine

A beneficial behavior we recommend practicing every morning is drinking a large glass of lemon water along with your CBD. CBD acts as an antioxidant [3], which means it helps to minimize skin damage produced by free radicals, which leads to premature skin aging.

Additionally, because topical CBD oil has potent antibacterial effects, it can be utilized as a spot therapy if you suffer from breakouts.

Good Morning Routine with CBD

CBD Before the Morning Workout

Pure CBD oil derived from good hemp is useful as a sleep aid. It also allows the body to repair itself in preparation for the day ahead.

Our bodies work to restore our immune, neurological, skeletal, and muscular systems when we sleep, which are essential for sustaining our mood, memory, cognitive, and other crucial processes. All of this helps to ensure that we'll be in the best possible shape for our workout the next day.

CBD doesn’t only not damage cognitive performance — it might actually improve it. Studies are just beginning to demonstrate that CBD could improve blood flow to important areas of the brain, notably the hippocampus. [4]

CBD After the Morning Workout

CBD oil can aid athletes in a variety of ways, including lowering pain and inflammation after a workout. Anyone who exercises and runs regularly is aware that workouts and competitions that push you to your limits generate small tears in muscle tissue, which induce inflammation. 

Reducing inflammation can help alleviate the pain of typical muscular soreness after a hard workout. Several studies postulate that CBD can aid with pain relief. They explain that pain relief occurs through the activation of certain receptors as well as the reduction of inflammation. [5]

All in all, CBD oil's capacity to reduce inflammation may make it an effective recovery aid. 

CBD + Yoga

Natural components in cannabis can improve your overall health and, as a result, help you practice yoga more effectively.

If you're familiar with CBD's wellness and health benefits. In that case, it shouldn't come as a surprise that our endocannabinoid systems directly impact the regulatory mechanisms that respond to yoga. CBD also has a direct impact on your ECS regulatory system.

CBD is popular among yogis because of its potential to enhance and promote the different benefits of yoga.

When CBD and yoga are combined, it is thought that they work in unison. They seem to complement and augment one another's characteristics, providing relief from pain, tension, stress, and other symptoms associated with a variety of diseases.

During the Mid-Morning

CBD's characteristics have been found in studies to aid cognitive clarity and focus. Additionally, CBD may reduce tension, allowing you to concentrate on the work at hand rather than fretting about your lengthy schedule.

The advantages of incorporating CBD into your morning and everyday routine become more apparent as CBD research advances. CBD oil can make your mornings less of a struggle and lead to a more active day by boosting your mind, attitude, and body. The important thing is to determine the proper dose and delivery method for you. 

Summing Things Up

Listening to your intuition is one of the most crucial things you can do while starting a mindful morning practice. Your body may require various things on different days. This must be respected.

However, keep in mind that incorporating a mindful morning practice into your life can benefit you in much more ways than you realize. We also feel that using CBD first thing in the morning could have a similar effect. 

Trust us, once you dial in your morning routine, you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish during the day.
