Adulting is hard. It seems like there are never enough hours in the day, we’re pressed to be ever-increasingly efficient, we’ve never gotten quite enough sleep, and things are always going to slow down “next week.”
But things never really do slow down.
How can we do all the things and still actually enjoy ourselves?
There are a million blogs and magazine articles with tips and techniques ranging from the Eisenhower Principle to productivity journaling. But did you know that CBD is actually an incredibly effective addition to your productivity toolbox?
We don’t just rely on the therapeutic effects of CBD to relax and de-stress. Many people find that CBD products actually help them focus and get more done in the day.
How? It turns out a little planning and proactive self-care can transform a day from a stressful mess into a productive pleasure.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant. It doesn’t get you high, but rather interacts with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system to achieve a number of therapeutic effects.
The endocannabinoid system is closely integrated with the central and peripheral nervous systems, the gastrointestinal tract, and the immune system. This means that CBD interacts with receptors throughout the body’s systems, including systems that regulate balance, appetite, coordination and mood.
Another less well-known but valuable hemp compound is known as CBG. People who use CBG actually find its therapeutic effects to be energizing. When combined with CBD, the two work together for what people describe as a focusing effect.
Focus, energy, and health are keys not only to productivity, but to maintaining a sustainable and enjoyable routine. Here are some methods to incorporate CBD into your productive day, from morning to evening.
Start Your Day With a Kick
Before reaching for that cup of coffee or tea, consider starting your day with an energizing CBD Morning Capsule. With a combination of CBD, CBG and caffeine, our morning capsules are designed to start your day with a focused boost of energy.
Formulated with extended release caffeine to avoid the both jitters and caffeine crash, these capsules make the most of the Entourage Effect achieved by pairing CBD and CBG.
With the Entourage Effect, combined cannabinoids work together synergistically, creating an overall effect that is far more effective than either would achieve on its own.
Focus is the key to productivity. A sleepy brain can’t focus, but all the energy in the world won’t help if you can’t turn your attention to one task at a time and ignore distractions.
A focus shot formulated with an energizing blend of CBD, L-Arginine, and caffeine is a quick and tasty way to get yourself into the right frame of mind for a productive day.
L-Arginine is an amino acid that dilates blood vessels for better blood flow, working in tandem with caffeine and CBD to help you get your head in the game and to give you the energy required to clear that inbox.
It can feel like we’re always tired, and our unhealthy sleep habits certainly don’t help. Good sleep, exercise, and nutrition are critical to having a healthy, energized day.
The best way to maintain productivity throughout the day is to keep your battery charged. Although people often associate CBD with seeking a good chill, it also carries a number of energizing benefits, especially when combined with other powerful ingredients.
CBD Gummies with Turmeric and Spirulina are a perfect example of a CBD product that maximizes energy. Both turmeric and spirulina are superfoods that contribute to metabolism, managing stress and maintaining energy. Spirulina also enables the production of vitamin B6, which manages energy release.
Our Wellness Tincture combines CBD with CBG, which people typically find both energizing and focusing. It also features the antioxidants curcumin (found in energizing turmeric) and coenzyme Q10.
It’s easy to get caught in a cycle of too little sleep, too little rest and too much work. We eat unhealthy food on the go and push ourselves to burnout.
If we want to be optimally productive and also stay happy doing it, we need to take care of our bodies and minds.
In addition to sleep, exercise, and nutrition, supplements like multivitamins can ensure our body’s reserves are topped off with the fuel we need to keep all our systems running properly.
CBD Multivitamins are an ideal way to streamline your CBD regimine by combining it with your daily vitamin routine. This all-in-one option includes vitamins A, C, D3, E, B Complex, calcium, and zinc, as well as 50mg of broad spectrum CBD. These multivitamins come in formulas designed specifically for women and men.
Apple cider vinegar is another wildly popular health supplement. Although we’ve used apple cider vinegar for thousands of years to treat heart health, digestive issues and allergies, it has recently resurfaced as a gut health, detox, and weight loss supplement. CBD Gummies with Apple Cider Vinegar provide another supplementary one-two punch, delivering 1000mg of apple cider vinegar, 50mg of broad spectrum CBD, and vitamin B12 for an energy and immune system boost.
Good rest is integral to an energetic, productive day. When it’s time to wind down after a long one, CBD is your optimal choice.
A Chill Shot combines CBD with the calming amino acid L-theanine for a sweet evening refreshment sure to help you ease into a good night’s rest.
Alongside CBD, melatonin is one of the most popular choices for helping our bodies settle in for a deep, peaceful sleep. CBD Gummies with Melatonin capitalize on the power of both supplements for a natural sleep aid that won’t cause grogginess in the morning.
Productivity is about more than just working harder or using efficiency techniques. It’s about a healthy mind and body. To work better and make the most of your day (and be able to enjoy yourself while you’re at it), safeguard your focus, energy and health.
From focus shots to wellness tinctures to sleep tinctures, we have CBD products to help you make the most of your day.
