What is the best time of day to take CBD oil?

Many of us are now familiar with CBD and the reasons people choose to use it. However, one of the questions that often gets asked is when the best time is to use your CBD oil or other product. We explore the different options in this blog.

How often should you use CBD oil?

Before we delve into the best time of day to have CBD, it’s first important to consider how often you should have CBD (and how much CBD you should have).

Most people suggest that you should use CBD oil regularly in order to feel its effects – if you use it just on occasion, it is unlikely to have any impact! With that in mind, it’s probably best to include CBD in your daily routine.

However, how often you then use CBD in a 24-hour period is down to the individual. The important thing to remember is to stick to an overall daily serving so that you’re not having too much!

It is recommended that, if you’re trying CBD oil for the first time, you start with a smaller amount (for example, 20mg) and then increase this gradually over time until you find a serving size that works for you.

Morning vs. evening

Whether you choose to have CBD in the morning or evening can depend on what your intentions are for the CBD oil. People who take CBD in the morning have reported that it helps them focus and allows them to feel more alert.

On the other hand, those that take CBD in the evening do so as part of a relaxing evening routine, after a long day, before trying to get to sleep.

It can also just depend on when CBD oil best fits into your wellness routine. If you prefer to have your CBD oil with your breakfast or your morning cup of coffee, then that will be the best option for you. If you prefer to take CBD oil or apply it topically in the evening before bed, then that’s the option to go with. It’s all about finding a way to make CBD a part of your routine!

Dosing throughout the day

If you want to have your CBD oil more frequently and continue to feel the effects throughout the day, another option is to take smaller doses at different intervals. This has the advantage of spreading the CBD intake throughout the day, so that you don’t have to choose one particular time.

However, this can be an impractical option for those who are busy, on the move, or simply forgetful! If that’s the case for you, it may be worth choosing one time each day and sticking to it, so you remember to have your CBD oil on a daily basis.

The most accurate answer when it comes to the question of the best time of day to take CBD is whenever works best for you! It might take some trialling to see what makes you feel the best and allows you to slot CBD oil into your existing routine, but you will find a time that works for you.
