Hemp oil is easy to add to your daily routine and believe us, your body will thank you!
Its therapeutic effects, along with the numerous untold benefits it can hold for overall well-being, are among the many reasons that a growing number of people are turning to hemp oil products to improve their lifestyles with a sense of wellness and balance. Pure hemp oil is quickly becoming one of the most popular natural remedies on the market. An uncommonly versatile product, there are innumerable ways to incorporate hemp oil into a daily routine.
Here are a few ways to add hemp oil to your daily routine, we suggest giving a few of them a try, allowing you to choose what works best for your body and your lifestyle.
1. Add Hemp Oil To Your Meals
It turns out that adding hemp oil to a meal isn’t just an easy way to incorporate it into your daily routine, it might also make a major difference to how effective the hemp oil is for your body! A recent study by the University of Minnesota found that consuming cannabinoids with high fatty food quadrupled the concentration of cannabinoids in participants’ bloodstream as opposed to when taken on an empty stomach. That means your body may get even more benefits from pairing your daily dose of hemp oil with a meal.
Breakfast is an especially easy time to incorporate hemp – especially if you’re a fan of smoothies. You can add a dropper-full straight into the blender along with your protein powder, fruit, yogurt, etc., and not only look forward to absorbing extra amounts of those beneficial cannabinoids into your body but also an extra punch of flavonoids a.k.a powerful antioxidants that are also found in fruits and veggies. If you’re not a fan of smoothies you can always add it to your coffee (try subbing full-spectrum hemp oil for regular MCT oil in your butter coffee!) a glass of juice or your morning tea. Just make sure you eat something with it to help those cannabinoids absorb into your body!
If hemp oil in the morning isn’t your thing, you can easily incorporate hemp oil into any other meal throughout the day. Try adding it to salads instead of olive oil or mixing it into any other beverage throughout the day paired with a favorite snack. Or, if you’re not a fan of the unique taste of hemp oil, simply take a capsule before you eat to get the same benefits.
2. Pair Hemp Oil With Your Favorite Alcoholic Beverage
There is a lot of speculation around mixing alcohol and cannabinoids (a.k.a full-spectrum hemp oil.) Some people think it’s an incredible combination that brings out the best qualities of both substances, while others see no effect or don’t like it. There is speculation that it may help prevent some of the negative side effects associated with alcohol, or that it might contribute to a more pleasant relaxed experience. Some folks also find that it helps in recovery from those nasty hangover symptoms.
The truth is we don’t know a lot just yet about it because very few studies have been done. Since none of this has been proven, your body is going to be the best expert on whether this is the right way for you to enjoy consuming hemp oil. This is where experimentation comes in! And it’s a pretty fun experiment to conduct. There are great recipes out there for cocktails created to combine and bring out the extra special flavors of hemp oil with other liquors. Just be sure to be safe and not go overboard while trying them out!
3. Incorporate Hemp Oil Into Your Exercise Routines
Help your body out with a little hemp oil before or after exercising! More and more athletes are discovering the benefits of hemp oil for pain relief and performance improvement. From professional golfers to regular folks adding it to their yoga routine, hemp oil can be a great way to improve your exercise routine directly and indirectly for a range of reasons. We even wrote a blog post on it!
4. Rest & Relax With Hemp Oil
If you’re looking to bring greater calm and relaxation into your life you might find that incorporating hemp into rituals around relaxation for your body is the way to go! Hemp oil pairs wonderfully with a relaxing yoga class, meditation, or taken before sliding into a warm bath. (Better yet, add some hemp oil directly to the bathtub!) Hemp oil is also a wonderful addition to bedtime routines to help your body get more and better sleep. This is also a great time to incorporate topical forms of hemp oil, such as a salve or a roll-on. In these forms, hemp oil can be rubbed into sore muscles, or anywhere that you feel tension in your body so you can slide into bed with a feeling of peace.
5. Add Hemp To Your Body Care Routine
Hemp oil isn’t just good for your insides, it’s a nutrient-packed winner for your whole body! Try adding some hemp oil tincture to your existing body products such as lotion or serums and your body will thank you! We suggest adding a few drops to the palm of your hand and mixing it with whatever other product you want to pair it with to test how much you need to see the effects and to make sure your body likes it.
Another great method for adding hemp oil to your skincare routine is through face masks, you can either make your own or add a few drops to a store-bought mask. Between the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes your face will get a powerful anti-inflammatory dose of antioxidants and nutrients. A topical salve can also be easily incorporated into an overall skincare routine either in addition to your existing products or as a special ointment for troublesome dry skin or other irritations.
Don’t forget about your hair! Hemp tincture can be added to your shampoo, condition, hair oils or really anything – it’s up to you and your body. Just make sure you are using a whole plant full-spectrum hemp oil so you are getting all of the benefits of the phytonutrients, and that it’s third-party tested and grown without lots of chemicals and pesticides.
Whether you take hemp oil as a tincture added to your morning smoothie, in capsules or use it topically via salves or roll-ons, hemp oil is easy to incorporate into your daily routine. For those looking to support an active lifestyle, hemp oil presents a risk-free and non-intoxicating enhancement, while others may find that hemp oil offers all the same benefits to their days as a way to decompress and relax. Because hemp oil provides a safe wellness experience, you are free to experiment and discover the routine that works best for you and your body!
