CBD is one of the latest health crazes that is proving to be more than just a passing trend. There are real positive effects that can help you improve your life. But is CBD better taken daily or just as needed? Research has found that CBD is excellent at targeting inflammation and pain and anxiety and that it can assist the body in multiple ways. In other words, CBD can be just like your daily multivitamin—or even better!
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a chemical known as a cannabinoid, which can exists within all strains of the cannabis plant, including industrial hemp. CBD oil is extracted from cannabis and hemp at varying amounts. The way CBD interacts with the body is beneficial, for it balances your endocannabinoid system, helping the body regulate itself more readily.
CBD is also non-intoxicating (not psychoactive). This means it won’t get you high. Because you don’t have to worry about psychoactive effects, you can utilize CBD oil and other CBD products more fully, creating a comprehensive wellness regimen that fits into your daily schedule. You won’t have to worry about dealing with negative effects of cannabis.

Benefits of Taking CBD Daily
Let’s have a look at the many ways supplementing with CBD daily can benefit you:
Less Joint Pain
Are you suffering joint pain caused by arthritis and inflammation? CBD plays a significant role in reducing joint inflammation by inhibiting certain reactions within the endocannabinoid system. The best part is that CBD does not have side effects like other pharmaceuticals used for joint pain relief. Although you may feel some tiredness (or conversely, insomnia), that usually goes away with a few days of continuous use.
Heightened Focus and Concentration
As cannabidiol starts to effect the endocannabinoid system, you will begin to notice that you are able to focus and concentrate better. This is because one of the main benefits of CBD is better sleep at night and more relaxation throughout the day. When you are better managing stress, you are able to stay more motivated and attentive throughout the day.
CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory. It can suppress autoimmune reactions, like those caused by microglial cells and macrophages. Those who experience chronic inflammation from autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis or irritable bowel syndrome may be able to reduce symptoms with CBD.
Improved Sleep Cycles
If you are struggling to get a decent amount of sleep, making CBD oil a part of your daily routine could help. CBD has been noted to increase your duration of sleep, as well as the length of the REM cycle. Now, researchers are speculating about CBD as a treatment for REM sleep behaviour disorder. However, you can’t just use CBD like you would melatonin. You need to take it consistently in order to get the best sleep ever.
You can add multiple CBD products to your daily regimen. For example, instead of just using a tincture for anxiety, you can also use a CBD balm, salve, or lotion for healthier skin. Cannabidiol may be able to reduce lipid (fat) production, which can reduce the activity of oil glands in the skin. If you suffer from acne, daily topical application of CBD may help reduce its appearance or eliminate acne over time.
Headache and Migraine Relief
Although a lot of the research behind this is still in its infancy, there has been evidence that cannabis and CBD oil can reduce the severity and frequency of headaches and migraines. This is especially true if your headaches are caused by tension. Since CBD oil can also be used for stress relief, it cannot be said whether headaches and migraines are experienced less frequently because you are more relaxed or not; but either way, it’s a positive benefit!
Reduced Anxiety and Depression
Multiple studies have found that CBD is a promising treatment for both anxiety and depression [1, 2]. Although more research is necessary to understand exactly how CBD affects the brain to soothe anxiety and depression, those who take CBD can often provide anecdotal evidence. If you experience anxiety throughout the week, CBD may be able to help.
Researchers are beginning to look into CBD as a way to help maintain blood glucose levels in those with diabetes . Studies are being done on diabetic mice to monitor how blood sugar reacts in the presence of CBD. Other studies are looking into how CBD may be able to assist with weight loss.
Since daily use will help keep CBD in your system, it could potentially assist with keeping your blood sugar and insulin levels in equilibrium, giving you more freedom.
Try CBD Today
Although you don’t have to take CBD every day to receive the amazing benefits, taking CBD daily can increase the positive effects of the supplement. CBD, like other cannabinoids, needs to build up within your body first to work effectively within the endocannabinoid system. Daily CBD use will improve the endocannabinoid system and help your body achieve homeostasis.
