Every year, the young CBD industry grows even larger. The secret to this boom is simple; more and more people are trying CBD and finding that it works for them. That said, people who are new to using cannabidiol, or haven’t started yet, tend to have many questions. Information can sometimes seem contradictory since there’s a great deal of user testimony and an ongoing shortage of hard science. If you ask someone when to take CBD, some will swear by taking it in the mornings and others might proclaim they only take it in the evening. So which is it, do you take CBD in the morning or the evening?
Do You Take CBD in the Morning or Evening?
This question has an extremely simple answer, which is that there’s no wrong time to take CBD. The fact that some people take it at either time goes to show that neither is wrong, and you can adapt cannabidiol to your own schedule and preferences. In general, you should consider practical concerns and your own needs to decide when to take CBD. Experiment with taking your Hello Mellow in the morning and in the evening, and see what works best for you!
When to Take CBD for Sleep
Depending on what else a CBD product contains, it may take as little as 20 minutes or as long as a few hours to kick in. In general, if the CBD product contains only CBD, you’ll want to use CBD products for sleep a few hours before bed. Betoken’s Nighty Night capsules, however, which contain a proprietary blend of CBD, Valerian Root, Hops, PassionFlower and Lemon Balm, are effective within 20-30 minutes. We suggest only taking them at night, or when you’re prepared and have time for at least 6 hours of sleep.
One running theory on how cannabidiol works is that it regulates the body and works to achieve optimal function. As such, it may improve sleep by tackling the causes of bad sleep rather than inducing tiredness. Unless you rely on anxiety to meet deadlines, it’s unlikely you have any reason to worry about taking CBD in the morning.
When to Take CBD for Pain
If you suffer from chronic pain, you might have heard that some people use CBD to alleviate it. While this route works for some to relieve some pain, it’s not for everyone. We always suggest talking to your doctor first before starting a new treatment option. Using topical ointments for targeted relief is a common choice, in this case, but some topicals can take time to produce effects. Whether you’re looking to relieve pain before moving about during the day or you want to stop it from interfering with your sleep, apply Betoken’s Pain, Pain, Go Away cream an hour or two before you desire relief. It’s important to note that the length of the effects varies by person, so you’ll have to pay close attention to how long CBD works for you (if at all!) and reapply suitably to maintain the effects throughout the day.
