Do you know the best way to take your CBD? With a wide variety in forms of delivery from tinctures to capsules, options abound, and you might be wondering what the best method is and how to get the most out of it. CBD capsules, like Equilibria’s Daily Softgels, are an excellent way to get your daily dose of CBD in a form that allows for extended relief. CBD in capsule form prolongs the benefits throughout the day for a steady, consistent effect, as compared with taking CBD sublingually (like our Daily Drops), which delivers results with a faster onset but often shorter duration.
Of course, what’s in your CBD dose is just as important as the method you use to take it. With so many different brands and formulations, how can you be sure you’re getting the most effective and beneficial CBD possible? In order to derive the most benefits, you want to look for a full-spectrum CBD formulation, which includes a wide range of phytocannabinoids, which contribute a variety of therapeutic properties. Equilibria’s CBD is not only full-spectrum, but hand-harvested, third-party lab-tested, and single-source, so you know you’re getting the most effective CBD dose possible.
To maximize the effects of your Equilibria CBD, we recommend members take their Daily Softgels along with a healthy fat. Because CBD is fat-soluble and cannabinoids bind with fatty tissue in the body, a snack with healthy, plant-based fats will increase how much of the CBD your body is able to make use of. A 2016 study found that when dietary fats were ingested along with cannabinoids including CBD, the bioavailability — how much of the CBD is able to be used by the body — increased dramatically, making the cannabinoids considerably more effective.
You might be asking yourself what, exactly, “healthy fats” are, and how you can incorporate them into your daily routine. Here are a few of the Equilibria team’s suggestions for quick, easy snacks that you can pair with your Daily Softgels to make sure you’re getting the most out of them.
Nut Butter with Banana Slices and Chocolate Chips
Whether you prefer peanut, almond, or cashew, the monounsaturated fats in nut butter are an ideal accompaniment to your daily CBD dose. Make sure you check the ingredients list, though; you’ll want a single-ingredient butter, without added sugar, salt, or hydrogenated oils, which are often found in “no-stir” nut butter. Once you’ve found your preferred flavor, spread a small amount on banana slices and top with a few chocolate chips for a healthy and delicious treat.
If you prefer to take your Daily Softgels in the morning, we have the snack for you! One of the most popular sources of healthy fat these days, avocado toast is a great way to start your day and an even better way to make sure you’re getting the most benefits out of your CBD. Loaded with potassium, folate, and vitamins C, E, and B6 in addition to heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, avocados are a great choice to accompany your daily dose.
Feeling a little indulgent? Satisfy your sweet tooth while you maximize the benefits of your Daily Softgels. Almonds are high in healthy fats, fiber, and protein, and dipping them in dark chocolate not only makes them more delicious but also adds nutritional benefits like powerful antioxidants and soluble fiber. Dark chocolate also has anandamide, the “bliss molecule” that CBD imitates! Taking CBD alongside dark chocolate can potentially boost the properties of your CBD dose.
Celery With Cream Cheese and Everything Bagel Seasoning
For an updated twist on a classic snack, spread cream cheese (high in healthy fats!) on celery, then sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. Get all the flavor of an everything bagel and cream cheese, minus the carbs, and with a satisfying crunch. It’s a perfect snack to have with your Daily Softgels, no matter the time of day!
