Can You Take CBD for More Energy

Have you ever tried to take CBD for more energy?

We get it. Some days, we’re all running on empty—life is demanding. It pulls us in multiple directions at what seems like the worst times. 

You know, those times where you’ve misplaced your motivation or those days where you can’t seem to get your “engine” going? 

These types of days have one thing in common—energy levels are extremely low. Needless to say, we all know how challenging it is to power through a list of tasks if you feel like all you want is to curl up the fetal position and sleep for a good 8 hours. 

CBD surprises people in various ways, but one of the most surprising capabilities of CBD is its ability to produce energizing, attentive effects—in contrast to the usual calming, relaxing effects we tend to think of first. 

Those who love CBD, both novice and experienced, are always surprised to learn you can adjust your serving amount to achieve energy-boosting effects. We’ve all heard how versatile CBD is, and this is one of the many reasons. 

Is your head nodding at your desk on the low? 

Are you struggling to keep up with your kids during the day? 

Is it hard for you to find the energy and motivation to get started on things?

If you’re shaking your head yes and want to know more about this idea and how to incorporate it into your life, keep reading to find out more. 

How CBD Works in the Body

Did you know the cannabinoid compound is what makes CBD effective? The hemp plant has around 100 cannabinoids we know of so far, and they all produce different effects and benefits.

CBD, specifically, is non-psychoactive and is well known for its ability to calm the mind and reduce discomfort in the body. 

CBD is on the cutting edge. There’s still much to learn about the hemp plant and its cannabinoids. There are studies conducted to expand all the knowledge we have about particular cannabinoids. 

Your body produces cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids naturally, whether you take CBD or not, and these cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system to maintain a much-needed balance within your body. 

This is possible due to the signaling of specific receptors in the body. The CB1 receptor is responsible for the brain, central nervous system, lungs, liver, and kidneys. In contrast, the CB2 receptor is responsible for immune cells moving about the body, as well as the spleen, bone, and liver cells. 

This system and the interaction between these components significantly influence some of the body’s primary functions and processes such as pain, inflammation, sleep, mood, reproduction, and much more. 

Let’s be honest; the complexity of the human body is quite extraordinary. 

How to Use CBD for Energy

Many find it surprising they can use CBD for energy, but all you have to do to achieve this is cut back on the daily serving amount because large amounts of CBD induce drowsiness and relaxation. 

On the other hand, small amounts of CBD can be calming, but work to give you focus, concentration, and attention. 

Here are the steps you need to take to achieve this effect: 

  1. Find a product you like for this approach. If you can find a product already pre-measured in lower serving amounts, this is perfect. There are gummies as low as 5 mg each; these are a perfect example of what’s needed. 
  2. Make this product part of your daily routine. Take it when you get up in the morning, or any time during your morning routine that’s easy to remember—before or after coffee, with your parfait—whatever works for you. 
  3. Stay consistent with your new routine. Taking your CBD every day allows it to build up in your system for increased effectiveness and duration. 

Taking CBD in small amounts consistently allows the cannabinoids to act as a stimulant and reduce slow-wave sleep and REM sleep. 

Products Made with Energy-Boosting Ingredients

Not only can you reduce the serving amount to see an increase in energy levels, but you can also explore products created with other energy-boosting ingredients. 

There are products created with L-theanine, taurine, vitamin B12, and much more. Let’s look at some of these individually and see how the combination can benefit you. 

L-theanine is an all-natural amino acid generally found in certain tea varieties. It’s called “smart caffeine” because it’s a natural source that works to boost concentration, focus, energy, and attention. 

When combined with CBD, you have the best of both worlds. You’ll have the energy and focus you need without the anxious thoughts that creep up on us all during the day. So, not only does it give you the energy and focus you need, but it enhances relaxation without drowsiness.

It sounds like a formula we can all use throughout the day!

You’ve probably heard of taurine if you’ve had an energy drink before. You might be surprised to learn you can find some CBD products combined with ingredients like taurine.

While a few people have encountered jitters with this element alone, the combination of taurine and CBD pair quite well because they provide the perfect balance. 

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient we’re all familiar with too. Many people go out and get B12 shots when they feel their energy levels take a dip, but you can find vitamin B12 in a wide range of health and wellness products, especially CBD products. 

Moving Forward—Getting the Energy You Need

Now you’re equipped with the tools needed. Now you can have all the energy you need because you know how to adjust your serving size.

Look around and see what kind of product is best to keep with you.

There are all kinds of products on the market that help people achieve the energy levels they’re looking for.

They say life is what you make it—the same applies to CBD!
