When is the best time of the day to take my Cannabis Oil?

Experts believe that both dosage and the time of day can have a huge impact on how your body responds to CBD.

We know that every individual’s endocannabinoid system is different, and therefore each person will respond uniquely to cannabis oil.  It’s vital that you know what you’re trying to treat, or what effects you’re looking for in determining the best time of day to take your cannabis oil.

Many cannabis oil users say that it makes them more focused, alert and energized.  On the other hand, you will have users tell you that it makes them relaxed and has a calming, soothing effect.  Again, that’s why it’s so important to know what you’re trying to treat.  For example, if you’re trying to cure your insomnia or sleeping problems, then naturally you’ll want to take your cannabis oil at night.

  • Focus 

If you’re looking to stay focused and keep those daily stresses away, taking CBD in the morning is the best time of day to do so.  We’ve all experienced that morning fogginess, and while it won’t give you that instant shot of energy like a cup of coffee, cannabis oil has been found to increase your morning alertness.

  • Stress

Most, if not all of us, experience stress in one way or another.   Cannabis oil interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your brain, promoting relaxation as well as reducing hyperactivity.  If you’re wanting to use CBD products to ease your stress, it is recommended you use them in the morning.

  • Muscles

Have you ever woken up in the morning with a little bit of muscle stiffness?  Or maybe you even pulled a muscle somehow in your sleep?  Using cannabis oil in the morning can help to relax your muscles and ease the painTopicals and body balms are an excellent choice in this scenario and can be applied directly to the affected areas.

  • Unwind

Cannabis oil is a great option to help relax your mind and body after a long, stressful day.  When taken in higher doses, CBD can have a sedative effect, helping you unwind and get a good night’s sleep.

  • Wake up fresh

Cannabis oil has been shown to have a positive influence on different stages of your sleep cycle.  It can help reduce certain sleep disorders, and allow you to wake up feeling fresh with little to no morning fogginess.

The effects of cannabis oil have been known to last anywhere from four to six hours depending on the dosage.  It’s important to pay attention and listen to your body in evaluating when the best time of day is for you to take your cannabis oil.  Keep a CBD journal listing the time you took your CBD, the dosage and the effects.  

Consistency is also key if you’re wanting to reap the full rewards from your CBD products.  Many users will try it once and claim that it had little to no effect on them.  One must remember that, as with most supplements, CBD can take awhile before your mind and body experience the full benefits.
