It is of our belief that CBD should not be used solely to enhance an experience but should be part of a holistic self-care routine. Having said that the stress-relieving qualities of CBD and meditation could work hand in hand to reduce the anxieties of the modern world.
Similar to the practice of meditation, CBD also has properties that may help you to relax. The addition of CBD into your daily routine can produce similar effects as those seen with the addition of meditation. We believe that this is why many people often choose to enhance their daily meditation with a dose of CBD.
Results do depend on the dose and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all. As a general rule of thumb, it’s always good to start with a low dose when incorporating a new supplement into your routine and then gradually increasing this when required.
Another consideration to take into account is that CBD can take time to work and it may not show results right away. CBD works with your endocannabinoid system in an interesting way; the more you consume it, the more receptive your body becomes to it. It might take some people a couple of months of continuous CBD consumption in order to fully experience the benefits. If you are consuming CBD orally it’s also important to know that it can take up to an hour to absorb into your body — this delay will need to be worked into your preparation for mediation.
Many CBD users report positive and relaxed moods after consumption, something that can help a lot when it comes to meditation. It also promotes awareness and focus, helping people’s thoughts stay in the moment.
All in all, there have been very few studies on CBD and meditation and whether or not they are more effective taken together. However, we do know that by themselves, CBD and meditation are independently capable of helping a person relax and feel a sense of calmness so why not give it a go.
