If you know all about CBD oil then you probably know how versatile it can be. Sure, you can take it and put a few drops under your tongue like everyone else, but have you ever thought about using some high quality CBD oil to enhance some of your other “favorites”?
By now, with all the traction and attention CBD has received, most of us already know all about the endless capabilities of CBD. It really seems like it can help any situation! Maybe you’ve already experimented with some creative ways to utilize your CBD oil, but if not, check out some of these clever ideas!
Create Your Own Spa Night
There are so many ways you can include CBD into a spa night. In fact, there are a multitude of products designed for this specific purpose, but what if you don’t have any of those products and only have your CBD tincture on hand?
No problem, you have a few options. The first thing you can do is put one full dropper under the running water along with your favorite bath salts—you can even add in some essential oils for aromatherapy. If you’ve never taken a CBD bath, you’re in for a real treat.
Your CBD oil is going to penetrate the deepest layers of skin to get to those overworked muscles that are craving some relaxation. So, turn down the lights, put on some calming tunes, and light your favorite scented candle because this hack is a game changer!
All of us fancy ourselves a mixologist in some fashion. Sure, you probably can’t compete with that amazing bartender downtown with the cute little man-bun, but you have your “specialties”. Next time you whip up your favorite cocktail, give yourself a little dropper of CBD oil.
You shouldn’t be driving anyhow when you’re drinking so it’s the perfect time to be a little more “chill”. It’s also helpful to know that a good number of companies are creating flavored CBD oil options now, so you’re not stuck with that earthy, plant-like flavor. That doesn’t mesh well with every drink, so flavored options are nice.
There are also some great benefits that come along with the “CBD Cocktail”. If you’re an introvert and have some trouble talking to people in bars or social settings, CBD oil can help ease your nerves and allow you to be more conversational.
Who says you can’t be the life of the party? It can also decrease your chances of having a gnarly hangover because it has an antiemetic effect. It will stop nausea and the possibility of vomiting from ruining your party, whether you’re in the moment, or kicking it on the couch the next day.
Make Your Own Topical
You understand the magic of a CBD topical if you’ve used one before. True enough, you could pop an Advil and be done with it, but what if you suffer from chronic pain? Do you really want to sabotage your internal organs? So, the next time you reach for that Advil bottle stop yourself.
Take a quarter-sized amount of lotion or cream (more depending on the area) and add in one dropper of CBD oil. All you need to do is combine them and rub your makeshift topical into the area that’s bothering you. With any topical application, you’ll need to wait a bit for the oil to take effect, but it’ll last for about 5-6 hours once it kicks in.
DIY CBD Gummies
Doesn’t this sound like a fun little project? Sure, not all of us are blessed to know our way around the kitchen, but this recipe is simple enough for anyone to work through. Who doesn’t love gummies, furthermore, who doesn’t love CBD gummies?
Yes, you have CBD oil, but it isn’t so practical to take along sometimes. The oil can spill somewhere, cause a huge mess, and not to mention, you’d be out of the amazing product that cost you a good amount of money. So have some fun and whip up these gummies in your free time.
1 Package of gelatin
1 ½ cups of coconut water or fruit juice
1 tbsp of sweetener to taste.
A desired amount of CBD
If you’ve made Jello, or gelatin before, the same process. You’re basically going to start by adding your fruit juice or coconut water to a low/medium heat (not too hot). Then, add your sweetener, gelatin, and last the CBD. You just continue to whisk over the medium heat, pour it into the molds, refrigerate, and you’re all done!
Summer is here! Yes, it’s hot and that means we all have to work a little harder to stay hydrated and healthy. You certainly need to be keeping up with your water intake, but make sure you get those recommended daily amounts of fruits and veggies.
Some of us despise “eating” our fruits and veggies so we blend them up and chug them. You can spruce up your favorite smoothie recipe with….you guessed it…..CBD oil. You know what to do—one dropper full, or the desired amount in and blend it on up! This might work better with a flavored oil option, but it’s totally up to you!
CBD smoothies are a great option if you’re someone who suffers from daily headaches or migraines because you can start your day off with one of these smoothies as a preventative measure. Headaches don’t stand a chance against the powers of CBD!
These are just a few fun, creative ways to put a little spark into your daily CBD oil use. Once you start to be a little creative with your CBD oil all kinds of ideas are going to come to you! The great thing is that CBD oil is natural, so you really can’t “mess up” with any ideas.
It might not taste the best, or come out how you imagined, but doesn’t that happen in any type of experimentation sometimes? So, enjoy your CBD a little more and start thinking outside of the box!
