How to Integrate CBD Into Your Wellness Routine

Prioritizing your physical, mental, and emotional well-being is an investment in your future self. The long-term sustainability of nearly any wellness routine, however, requires making incremental changes, setting realistic daily goals, and finding joy in the journey. It's also important to keep sight of the fact that overlooking imbalances in one area can have a significant impact on others. 

When physical discomfort disrupts your sleep, for example, the impact on your hunger hormones could derail your diet. Too many days of inadequate nutrition can drain your energy – so you don't exercise. Without exercise, you're less resistant to stress. How can you get back on track? Consider integrating CBD into your daily routine. Busy moms nationwide are using their favorite high-quality CBD products to help support their wellness goals naturally. Should you? 

CBD Explained: How Cannabidiol Helps Support Overall Health and Well-Being  

CBD (cannabidiol) is the dominant cannabinoid in the oil extracted from hemp flower, an active plant element that asserts its influence across multiple molecular pathways.1 After crops are harvested and dried, the plant oils are extracted, distilled, and used as an ingredient in an impressive range of popular products, CBD oil tinctures, topicals, softgels, gummies, and more. 

When you add CBD to your daily routine, the cannabinoid interacts with the receptors of the largest regulatory system in your body, your endocannabinoid system (ECS). That system is involved in nearly every crucial function, everything from emotional regulation to immune system function and muscle movement. Experts believe supporting ECS function with CBD promotes homeostasis2 – meaning it helps restore equilibrium when internal and external stressors threaten essential balance.3 

CBD for Busy Moms: How the Cannabinoid Helps Support Common Wellness Goals  

Whether your children are still in diapers or asking to borrow the keys to your car, the demanding schedule, inevitable worries, and never-ending list of parental responsibilities can make it difficult to prioritize self-care. Whether your current wellness routine is practically non-existent, or you've managed to stay relatively consistent, CBD could be just what you need to support your wellness goals. According to a 2019 CBDistillery® survey of 1,900 customers, most CBD users report positive results for multiple aspects of overall health and well-being, including the following examples. 

Better Sleep  

Parental stress, physical discomfort, hormonal fluctuations, and even seemingly minor changes in daily routine can make it difficult to fall asleep. Once your sleep patterns are disrupted, you could be missing out on the restorative sleep needed for cellular repair, optimal cognition, emotional equilibrium, and appetite regulation.4 Of our 1,900 survey respondents, 89% reported better sleep while using CBD. 

Relaxation  

Stress impacts every mom differently. Some turn to wine, alcohol, or comfort foods for temporary relief; others end up feeling too tense, overwhelmed, or agitated to relax and unwind. Of our 1,900 survey respondents, 89% say CBD calms their minds, 79% prefer CBD over wine for relaxation, 82% feel CBD is more effective than meditation, and 79% prefer the effects of CBD over yoga. 

Discomfort After Physical Activity 

Whether caused by a productive workout, keeping pace with your teen on the court, or indulging a toddler who expects to be carried, the inevitable discomfort you'll feel after strenuous activity could keep you on the sidelines for several days. Eighty-four percent of our survey respondents report that CBD helps with pain after physical activity, and 9 out of 10 choose CBD over turmeric to support recovery. 

Mild or Temporary Anxiety   

For many moms, occasional bouts of mild or temporary anxiety seem part of the job description. Regardless of the circumstances triggering the amplified response from your central nervous system, the impact can make it difficult to focus on anything but the cause of your distress. An impressive 88% of CBD users responding to our survey say CBD helps with mild or temporary anxiety. 

Shopping Smart: What to Look for Before Buying CBD to Support Wellness  

Finding hemp-derived CBD products is easy. Product purity and potency, however, can vary significantly from one brand to the next. Not only does industrial hemp have a way of pulling heavy metals, pesticides, and other potentially toxic substances from the soil as it grows,5 cannabinoid concentrations can vary from one crop to the next, and some extraction methods can leave solvent residue behind.6  

The best way to ensure you're not wasting money, risking your health, or stalling your progress is to stick with companies investing in third-party batch testing by an independent lab. After narrowing your options to brands that seem to tick all the right boxes, look for a Certificate of Analysis (COA) to verify the results of that testing. Of the 75% of CBD brands labeling their products as third-party tested, only about 13% submit samples for at least 90% of their products.7  

Refining Your Search: Choosing Between Cannabinoid Profiles and Product Types  

As you're browsing brand websites looking for third-party test results, you'll likely notice that most CBD products fit into one of three main categories based on their composition. Full spectrum products, for example, deliver hemp's many minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in the same ratios found in nature. You may find the effects stronger than other product types because of the potency-optimizing property unique to cannabis called an "entourage effect." The 15-20:1 CBD to THC ratio means there's little risk of intoxication. If you're opposed to ingesting a small amount of THC (0.3%), you have two alternatives: broad spectrum extract and pure CBD isolate.   

Broad spectrum hemp extract has many of the minor cannabinoids and terpenes needed to initiate an entourage effect, but the THC is reduced to non-detectable levels (.01% or less). For a 0% THC CBD experience, look for products made with flavorless, odorless CBD Isolate. Once you've refined your search parameters according to the type of extract you prefer, it's much easier to focus on how each of our industry's most popular CBD products could fit into your wellness routine. 

CBD Oil Tinctures  

Full spectrum, broad spectrum, and 0% THC CBD isolate tinctures are made with a precise blend of hemp extract and a carrier oil. The carrier oil helps ensure maximum bioavailability of the fat-soluble cannabinoid. Tinctures can be mixed with foods and beverages or applied topically. Most CBD users, however, prefer holding the oil beneath their tongue for 45-60 seconds before swallowing.   

CBD Gummies & Softgels   

CBD gummies are the product of choice among busy moms who appreciate their convenience, portability, and delicious flavors. Softgels deliver concentrated hemp extract in an easy-to-swallow gelatin shell. When you choose gummies, you have the option of adjusting your serving sizes as needed by cutting them into halves or quarters. With softgels, you won't taste the hemp.   

CBD Topicals  

Ingestible CBD products work systemically. CBD topicals, on the other hand, are the better option for targeted relief. You'll get the best results applying CBD topicals liberally to clean, dry skin. They're fast-acting and long-lasting. Since the CBD doesn't absorb into your bloodstream, you can use topicals on their own or to complement the effects of your favorite tinctures, softgels, and gummies. 

How Busy Moms Are Integrating CBD Into Their Wellness Routines  

CBD products are generally well-tolerated and carry no risk of chemical dependency. In a detailed report published by the World Health Organization, the agency found no indication of "public health-related problems." But side effects are possible. Some people find that hemp-derived products cause unexpected fatigue, diarrhea, stomach upset, and changes in appetite. Most often, their mild symptoms resolve with smaller serving sizes. 

To minimize the risk of adverse effects, most experts recommend that first-time users start with less CBD than suggested on product labels – a partial serving – and increase gradually (if needed) over time. Starting low and going slow is the best way to find the serving size that's right for you – the amount of CBD you can rely on to support your wellness routine at multiple points throughout the day. 

Adding CBD to Your Morning Routine  

The key to making CBD part of your wellness routine is consistency. For most moms, that means starting their day with CBD. What that looks like is different for everyone. If you start your day bulletproofing your morning coffee, for example, you might prefer adding a serving of a CBD oil tincture to your cup before frothing. If you take vitamins or supplements every morning, CBD softgels or gummies could be the best fit. 

Using CBD Mid-Day  

Although individual results can vary, most adults can expect the effects of CBD oil tinctures, softgels, and gummies to last 6-8 hours. At some point mid-day, you might find it helpful to add a second serving to keep the effects going strong. You may also want to consider keeping a CBD sports stick or full spectrum CBD balm on hand to ease muscle tension before, during, or after your workout. 

Adding CBD to Your Nightly Routine 

To ensure you're getting the rest you need to wake feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, support your nightly wellness routine by enjoying one of your CBD gummies or maybe a soothing cup of CBD-infused herbal tea about an hour before you plan on turning in for the night. If a relaxing soak in the tub is part of your pre-sleep ritual, consider taking it to the next level with a DIY CBD-infused bath bomb
