We’re already half of the way through 2020, so it’s only reasonable to ask — how’s the pursuit of your goals going?
We understand it’s easy to get distracted from the ideals you hold at heart. Life often gives us a heftier dose of stress than we would like, perhaps now more than ever.
That’s where CBD comes in. This plant compound is basically the supplement we didn’t know we needed, and it could be the perfect catalyst to jumpstart your daily routine and help you truly thrive.
How can you incorporate CBD into daily life? We’ve outlined a few ideas below — let’s take a look!

CBD Dosing 101
Getting the appropriate dose of CBD is just as important as consistency and timing. But how do you know how much CBD to take?
It’s a good question — and the answer is, CBD dosing is highly individualized. Everyone’s body responds differently to CBD, which means there’s no one-size-fits-all recommended dosage. Your body has a unique endocannabinoid system...so you’ll have a different dosage “sweet spot” than the next person.
That said, the average recommendation is to begin with a dose of 10-20 milligrams of CBD per day. Some people have noticed relief from nausea, anxiety, pain, and inflammation in as little as 20-30 minutes; for others, several days of consistent use is needed. You can increase your dose slowly if you’re not quite feeling the difference yet. CBD can be fun to experiment with, so enjoy the journey!
Keep in mind that some CBD products are more effective than others. Full Spectrum CBD oil is a common preference for a lot of people because it contains over 300 plant compounds. When featured together, according to nature’s design, these compounds produce something called the Entourage Effect.
The CBD-Powered Morning
Initial clinical research hints that CBD is best taken daily, perhaps because daily use best stimulates the endocannabinoid system.  You can set yourself up for consistent success by taking your CBD at similar times every day. Just like your toothbrush’s location makes brushing convenient (thankfully!)...just like your other supplements might be positioned somewhere prominent...your CBD products of choice can be put someplace noticeable where you won’t forget them!
You can even incorporate CBD into your morning rituals. Meditation is already great by itself; imagine how much richer it could get if amplified by a little pro-serotonin CBD. Taking your daily dose of CBD sublingually (under the tongue), first thing in the morning, could be the best way to ensure you stay consistent. Try mixing CBD oil into your coffee — the pairing goes great together.
Stay in Motion with CBD-Powered Workouts
Early research shows that CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits may be a boon for athletes. Here’s an explanation from endurance athlete expert Chris Charmichael: “as an athlete you apply greater stress to your body [than most others], leading to pain and inflammation greater than what your endocannabinoid system can handle. Adding exogenous CBD may help this overloaded system get your neurotransmitters back under control and help athletes maintain homeostasis.”
Athletes and enthusiasts across the board have reported noticing an increase in stamina when incorporating CBD with endurance exercise. Ready to give it a try? Start by consuming Toast premium extract an hour or two before your next workout!
Rest and Recover with CBD at Bedtime
But life isn’t all about output. Another vital aspect of health — and of any truly healthy daily routine — is making time for rest and recovery!
Once again, CBD may help. Research shows it may lower stress hormones like cortisol  and calm the CNS. And there’s one type of CBD product that does this better than others...that’s where smokeable CBD comes in.
More specifically, Toast Emerald is a smokeable 100% hemp flower pre-roll (or Slice). Toast is entirely free from low-CBD biomass and truly rich in terpenes (alpha-pinene, sabinene, beta-myrcene, limonene, and alpha-humulene, to name just a few). This all translates to an immersively relaxing smoking experience.
The endocannabinoid system that CBD impacts, plays a vital role in maintaining your body's circadian rhythm (your internal clock). Because of the gentle effects of CBD, many have people report sleeping better when consuming CBD an hour or two before bed. You can experiment with different dosages to feel what levels help you relax from the day, and which will inspire a deep sleep.
