When is the Best Time to Take CBD?

The best time to take CBD is not an exact science, however, there is still likely a best time for you personally. In this article, you’ll learn about the things to consider to find your optimal time.

The true advantage to taking CBD regularly is in its effectiveness in regulating the ECS. Taking CBD daily allows a person to have a steady flow of cannabidiol levels in their system, potentially making it more effective in supporting the alleviation of certain issues.

It’s important to note that users often don’t experience benefits and results instantaneously. Regular use is key. Before dialing in the exact right time of day for YOU, first, get consistent with a daily practice to get long-term benefits. Your optimal dosage and time of day will become clear as you track your results and make minor adjustments.

The best thing to do is to start with a low dose of CBD once per day. Give your body 30 days to adjust to see best results, don’t rush it. Taking only the recommended amount of CBD also makes it much more affordable.

Morning or Night? Which is the Better Time to Take CBD for Me?

As mentioned, whether you choose to take CBD in the morning or at night is not as important as ensuring consistent use. In fact, taking both in the morning and later in the day may be best for you. That said, here are a few useful things to consider.

Larger doses of CBD tend to result in more relaxing effects, while smaller doses seem to do a better job with increased energy and mood enhancement. Therefore, for someone dealing with pain symptoms that worsen at night or someone dealing with sleep issues, taking a larger dose closer to bedtime may be optimal.

People seeking to nurture a more positive frame of mind, combat anxiety or who need a bit of extra energy, could consider taking a smaller dose in the morning as a starting place.  

Taking CBD in the Morning

Consider taking CBD in the morning to:

  • Increase feelings of positivity and well-being
  • Kick-start your morning workout
  • Increase morning mental clarity
  • Balance the mind
  • Beat the brain fog
  • Feel prepared and motivated for the day ahead

Taking CBD at Night

Consider taking CBD later in the day or at night to:

  • Ease aches and pains
  • Promote relaxation and internal peacefulness
  • Unwind from the stresses of the day
  • Promote restful sleep & combat insomnia
  • Support feeling refreshed upon waking

To determine the optimal time for you will require a bit of trial and error with an eye to what you are personally dealing with in your day-to-day life.

Is Taking More CBD is Better?

Many people assume that by taking a higher amount of CBD, they will get better, faster, or longer-lasting effects. That’s not true. Read more about the CBD Misconceptions here.

Just like with any supplement, there is a point where you are taking too much. While CBD doesn’t seem to cause any life-threatening harm in high-doses, it isn't always positive either. Too much CBD can overstimulate your ECS receptors. (Read How CBD Works.) So when you overdo it, you risk losing the effectiveness of CBD, experiencing side effects, and having to take a break.
