In this blog post, we'll explore some tips on how to incorporate CBD products into your daily routine.
Choosing the right CBD product for you
Before you get started with adding CBD to your daily routine, it’s important to establish what type of product is best for you. With the rise in popularity of CBD has come a boom in different CBD products - making choosing the right one a minefield! CBD products are now available as CBD oils, drinks, capsules, gummies, topical creams…the list goes on. Each form has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it's important to choose the one that best suits your needs and preferences. CBD Drinks vs CBD oil...
For example, if you're looking for a lifestyle dose to help you focus during work, a CBD Drink, such as our INTUNE drinks, is an easy way to reap the benefits in a delicious way!

When’s the best time to take CBD?

Everyone’s needs and endocannabinoid systems are different, so it’s important to experiment with different times of day to see what works best for you. We also recommend starting with a low dose and gradually building it up until you find the right balance for your needs. INTUNE Drinks, for example, have been carefully formulated to include a 10mg lifestyle dose of high-quality CBD, meaning you can comfortably and safely drink several throughout the day.
Add CBD to your skincare!
Another great way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine, which you might not have come across, is through CBD-infused skincare. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for reducing redness and irritation in the skin. It also has antioxidant properties, which can help to create a barrier from environmental stressors.
To benefit from these anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, simply incorporate a CBD-infused moisturiser, serum or mask to your morning and nighttime skincare routine.
CBD food and drinks (our favourite!)
These days, CBD can be found in a wide variety of food and drink products, like - you guessed it - our Great Taste Award winning CBD Drinks! Consuming CBD in food and drink products is an easy and delicious way to incorporate CBD into your day. Absorption through the stomach also allows for a slow release, so you can enjoy long-lasting feelings of focus and balance. As well as being able to find a variety of products that already include CBD, you can also make your own by adding CBD Oil to your favourite dishes and drinks, such as coffee [coffee blog] or salad dressings.
When choosing CBD food and beverage products, or making your own, it’s important to start with a low dose of high-quality, food grade, CBD. Read more about our CBD here.

In conclusion, incorporating CBD products into your daily routine can be a great way to promote overall wellness and relaxation. By choosing the right product, determining the best time to take it, and experimenting with different methods of consumption, you can find a CBD routine that works best for your needs and preferences.
