3 Super Smoothies To Start Your Day Alongside Your CBD
In the heat of the summer, the last thing you want to do first thing in the morning is to cook a hot breakfast! With these easy, nutritious smoothie recipes, you can face the day ahead while keeping your cool and get the nutrients and energy you need to make your day great. To make sure you’re getting the best possible start to your day, these creative concoctions all pair beautifully with our Mint Daily Drops, ensuring you have everything you need for a balanced, focused day.
Why Pair Your CBD With a Smoothie?
At Equilibria, we recommend members take their daily CBD dose along with a healthy dietary fat. Because the CBD and other cannabinoids in our Daily Drops are fat-soluble, taking your dose with a healthy fat will increase its bioavailability, or how much of the CBD can be efficiently used by your body. Healthy dietary fats paired with CBD help ensure you’re getting the most out of your daily dose, making sure the variety of cannabinoids in our full-spectrum formulation are working as efficiently as possible.
When pairing your CBD with a smoothie, we recommend taking your Daily Drops and then enjoying your smoothie, rather than mixing the drops in directly. When mixing CBD into drinks, you, unfortunately, lose a significant amount of bioavailability to the digestive system, meaning that your dose’s effectiveness is decreased, and you won’t get the full benefits you’re looking for. Daily Drops’ sublingual delivery method allows the CBD to bypass the digestive system, giving you a faster onset of relief, while the cannabinoids bind with fatty tissue in the body to provide you with maximum benefits.
Our smoothie suggestions each contain healthy fats alongside fruits, vegetables, and nutritive add-ins for a delicious, balanced way to start your day. Feel free to get creative and adapt each recipe to your taste; no matter which way you mix it, a smoothie is a tasty accompaniment to your daily Equilibria CBD dose.
