You may know and love CBD for its well-known benefits surrounding stress, sleep, and feeling more balanced, but did you know it can also help many stay focused and alert throughout the day? Many of our members find that CBD helps them focus and stay calm to get through their busy days. Since one of the roles of CBD is to work alongside our body to regulate our stress hormones, many folks find that they have more clear-headed energy and patience to deal with their long list of to-dos.
How CBD can improve focus and concentration
Before we dive into the different ways you can use CBD for better focus, it’s important to understand how CBD works in the body.
CBD works with our Endocannabinoid System, which helps maintain balance, or homeostasis, across nearly all major systems in your body. The ECS plays a vital role in keeping our systems functioning properly – you name it, the ECS regulates it!
When your ECS is firing on all cylinders, it can perform its duty as your master regulatory system. Unfortunately, chronic stress is one of the biggest strains on the ECS, and when it isn’t firing, we see our other systems break down. This includes our ability to regulate mood, stress, and sleep.
Committing to a daily CBD routine is key to kicking your ECS into shape. CBD, like all cannabinoids, builds up in the body over time, which means your daily dose can help maintain sustained levels in your system and promote a more effective ECS.
Now that we’ve reviewed the basics, let’s dive into what products to use and how to use them for focus and concentration.
Products that may be helpful for focus and concentration
Take a slow-release 10mg Softgel in the morning with breakfast
This product is a slow-and-steady-release version of CBD. It’s swallowed like a vitamin and works best alongside a meal, particularly a meal or snack with a healthy fat. The Softgels take 1-3 hours to start working, and then it slowly releases CBD for up to 8 hours! Many women find that if they take a Softgel in the morning, they’ve got support to stay calm and focused throughout their workday.
Micro-Dosing with your 300mg Daily Drops
The Drops are great because you can really dial in the dosage to get the exact amount of CBD you’re looking for. Many folks like to take small “micro-doses” of Drops like 1/4 dropper (2.5mg/0.25mL) before their Zoom meetings or to stave off their 2 pm “afternoon slump”. We often find from our members that smaller doses of CBD tend to help more with focus and concentration, while larger doses of CBD are good for relaxation and sleep. Try a small micro-dose of your Drops and see how your workday feels!
Using your Dynamic Roller Duo
You can use the Roller Duo as a quick “pick-me-up” by rolling either the Calming or Energizing Roller on your wrists, temples, or jawline — anywhere that carries a little extra tension. Many folks on our Dosage Support team like to keep one Roller in the fridge and apply the chilled oil to their skin — it’s especially nice if you have a Zoom call and want to feel awake and alert!
