Five Ways To Enjoy CBD On The Go

Finding time for yourself between work, school, friends, family, other commitments, and deadlines can be a real challenge—let alone if you’re dealing with aches, pains, insurmountable stresses, or anxiety. Luckily, CBD might be able to help! How exactly does the busiest bee work  CBD into their day? We’ve got you covered! In this article, we’ll give you a couple of our favorite tips for enjoying CBD on the go.

What Is CBD—And How Does It Work? 

CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in hemp that won’t cause you to feel high but may be helpful for your body if you are always on the go. It works by interacting with the receptors in your endocannabinoid system (ECS) and could help balance out its overall function.¹

Your ECS is responsible for managing a host of crucial processes—like mood, immune system function, pain, inflammation, metabolism, body temperature, and sleep-wake cycles, to name a few. The role of your ECS is to keep the body functioning at a healthy baseline level, also known as homeostasis. If your ECS is out of whack, you may experience uncomfortable sensations like increased anxiety, sleep disorders, and/or increased sensitivity to pain.²

That’s where CBD comes into play. Its potential interactions with the ECS may make it possible to function more effectively—which is necessary for lifestyles that are always on the go.³

How Would CBD Benefit Busy People? 

While the naturally therapeutic properties of CBD harness the potential to benefit anyone, it may be especially useful for those living a go-go-go lifestyle. If you’re always on the move—or being pulled in different directions by a chaotic work life and a busy at-home life—CBD may be able to help.

For starters, some studies suggest that CBD may help with stress and anxiety.4 CBD works with the ECS to aid in dampening your natural response to stress, which helps to limit the release of ”the stress hormone” known as cortisol.⁶

CBD isn’t solely helpful with managing your typical on-the-go stresses. Evidence suggests that it may also be great for people who deal with inflammation or pain. Some research indicates that CBD is a potent anti-inflammatory—and in many cases chronic, overbearing pain is largely due to inflammation.

By reducing inflammation via CBD, you might be able to feel well enough to make the most of your everyday life. People who live a hectic lifestyle but also live with chronic pain may have a harder time accomplishing all of the things they’d like.⁸ However, that’s why CBD may be able to help make a difference.

There are a few other potential benefits of CBD that could help stressed-out individuals—but at the end of the day, its potential to help manage inflammation and stress is the cornerstone of its therapeutic properties. When stress and inflammation are effectively managed, you may find it easier to get more restful sleep, experience more positive moods, become sick less often, and feel like a more balanced and happier version of yourself.⁹⁻¹¹

Ways To Enjoy CBD On The Go 

One of the biggest questions busy people ask before trying something new is how they can fit it into their established, active lifestyles. Working CBD into your routine isn’t as hard as you think, though! Below are a few different ways that people with little time on their hands can easily work CBD into their routines.

1. Working It Into Recipes 

CBD is a very versatile cannabinoid that can be worked into all sorts of your favorite foods and drinks. However, high temps can cause CBD to become less effective, so you will want to avoid cooking it or baking it at temperatures over 350º F.¹² Some cannabinoids are able to withstand temperatures of up to 400º F, but CBD is more delicate than others—which can actually make it an excellent addition to dressings for salads, seasonings, or stir-fries. You could also add some drops of CBD oil into your morning coffee or evening tea—or incorporate it into one of the many CBD recipes on our blog!

2. As Part of Your Evening Wind-Down

After a busy day is done, it’s time to relax and recharge for the day ahead. You could try out our Cannabinoid Sleep Gummies for a tasty treat to help relax, decompress and de-stress. Adding CBD into your evening regimen can help alleviate soreness or pain—which may help you to fall asleep faster.

You can try a CBD tincture formulated for sleep to amplify your relaxation and help you find your zen. If you already take vitamins or supplements in the evening, you may enjoy our Cannabinoid Sleep Capsules for their precise serving size (no measuring needed) and their easy-to-swallow and familiar format. If you deal with a lot of pain, you can reach for CBD topicals or oils to help moisturize your skin—potentially reducing some of the pain or anxiety keeping you up at night. 

3. Elevate Your Morning Routine

Waking up in the morning isn’t always easy—especially when you know how long your to-do list is that awaits. There’s not much worse than waking up already feeling overwhelmed or stressed about the day ahead. Fortunately, CBD is just as easy to incorporate into any morning routine as it is into your evening routine.

You can add a few drops of CBD oil tincture to morning coffee or tea—or take it in capsule form with any other vitamins and supplements. You also may enjoy fruit-flavored CBD gummies, with four specially formulated, function-forward blends that could improve energy levels while helping better manage stress or anxious feelings.

4. Keeping Some In Your Car, Desk, or Bag

Sometimes when you’re in a rush to get out the door in the morning, it’s easy to miss your daily serving of CBD. However, a great tip for even the busiest of bees is to keep CBD in a handful of accessible places. If you missed your normal serving at home, it might help you to have some of your favorite products on hand when you get into your car or to the office. You may also want to keep some of it in a bag or briefcase, so it’s right there when you need it!

Some of the best offerings for taking on the go are topicals—like our CBD Balm Stick, which is an excellent choice for spot-treating aches and pains. It provides targeted, lasting relief all in an effective and non-greasy formula (that won’t require as much rubbing in as other CBD topicals).

You can also keep our CBD Fruit Tarts in your car or bag since they’re small, are able to remain stable in higher temperatures, and are as discreet as a tin of ordinary breath mints. If you have a lot of driving to do, you may want to use THC-Free CBD Gummies to help ensure there’s no unwanted intoxication while at the wheel. While most full-spectrum CBD products don’t contain enough THC to get you high, they could show up on a drug test. But if you prefer full-spectrum products, you can always keep a tolerance journal to ensure you won’t experience intoxicating effects above a certain threshold.

5. Integrating It Into Self-Care Rituals

The most successful busy people are those who still make time for self-care. Fortunately, CBD will fit easily into just about any self-care routine. Whether “self-care” for you means a few quiet moments of personal reflection or a relaxing bath with a good book, CBD is ready to help make the most of your time recharging. You can use our CBD Body + Massage Oil to help soothe any sore muscles—or apply some nourishing CBD Skin Repair Cream at the end of the day to begin winding down and recovering for tomorrow.

You also might benefit from taking CBD gummies or tinctures before, during, or after exercise or meditation—as it could help alleviate inflammation and feelings of stress. Self-care is about the leveling and recalibrating of body and mind, and CBD may naturally be able to make that more attainable to even the busiest lifestyles.

Convenient Relief—Anytime

At the end of the day, there are many easy ways to integrate CBD into even the busiest routine. You can count on Lazarus Naturals for a wide range of high-quality, third-party tested CBD that’s effectively formulated, accessibly priced, and (maybe most importantly) made to work.
