5 Easy Ways to Add CBD to Your Morning Routine
There are a million and one ways to take CBD, but finding the right way to add CBD to daily routines can be a little intimidating for new users.
Well, worry no more: we're here with five simple, easy ways to start your day off with CBD and greet the morning with your best foot forward!
So without further ado, let's jump into these five easy ways to add CBD to your morning routine.
1. CBD + Caffeine Energizing Capsules or Gummies
There are loads of reasons to start your day with caffeine or CBD. And for those looking to start the day on the best foot possible, combining the two just makes good sense.
Caffeine is mainly taken for its ability to boost energy, attentiveness, focus, and mood. CBD is primarily taken for reducing anxiety, improving focus, and quieting many common forms of pain and discomfort.
Combining the two supplements allows users to reap the benefits of both. The combination improves energy and mood, reduces anxiety, and even takes the edge off of caffeine's most common side effects and downsides — such as stomach upset, jittery nerves, and other symptoms of overstimulation.

2. CBD + Bulletproof Coffee
Coffee is a staple of the morning routine, but there are ways to make it more energizing, filling, and satisfying.
One standout: bulletproof coffee (and no, that's not an affiliate link).
Bulletproof coffee combines coffee with a blend of healthy fats, mainly from MCT (coconut) oil. The combination energizes and provides a healthy, easily-digestible supply of nutritional fats that can keep the body fueled, full, and running at peak performance for hours to come. And for those on ketogenic or other low-carb diets, it's an extremely diet-appropriate meal substitute like few other breakfasts can be.
Adding CBD only sweetens the pot, and it's easy as can be. By using CBD-infused coconut oil (probably my most-plugged product here in the CBDC blog!), you can slap together a rich, healthy, CBD and coffee treat either the night before or first thing in the morning.
3. Soothing Post-Exercise CBD Topicals
For the more athletically-minded, starting your day with a bit of exercise is the method non-pareil of setting the day off right. But, of course, that can leave you achy, tired, and needing a bit of relief!
And when that happens, CBD is there as the perfect post-workout supplement. It does a bit of everything: soothes muscles, fights inflammation, gets your after-exercise blood pressure back to normal, and the list goes on.
Whether you take it as a tincture (offering full-body relief) or use a powerful, cooling topical (offering targeted muscle and joint relief), CBD after your morning exercise is a perfect way to make sure that your workout routine doesn't leave you winded and weary for the remainder of the day.
4. Revitalizing CBD Skincare
No matter your walk of life, skincare is key! Applying a revitalizing moisturizer to your face or other exposed skin can insulate it from the elements, keeping you more comfortable throughout the day and looking younger and healthier for years to come.
And CBD-infused skincare products are a powerful tool in your skin-healthy arsenal, the perfect option for treating your thirsty skin before setting out into the wide world. Because it is so anti-inflammatory, incorporating CBD into your skincare routine will give it a welcome boost in reducing redness or puffiness. If acne is your struggle, adding CBD to the mix will go a long way, as it is known to reduce the amount of sebum produced by the skin.
There's a wealth of options for CBD skincare, and it's virtually impossible to narrow it down to just a few recommendations. But when it comes to the absolute best out there, I highly recommend looking at the Mary's Methods line of products. They're specialized in combining CBD with the most well-researched and proven ingredients from the cosmetics and skincare industry.

5. CBD-Infused Fruit Smoothies
Whether it's as a standalone healthy breakfast or alongside your bowl of granola, a fruit smoothie is a classic, energizing, delicious breakfast option. And adding CBD to it only sweetens the pot.
There are a ton of different ways that you can add CBD to your favorite fruit smoothie recipe. A flavored oil tincture, for instance, can enhance the taste experience and become a staple of the recipe.
But if you're like me and already have the perfect blend of fruits and other ingredients, nothing beats CBD isolate powder. It's virtually flavorless, mixes well in the blender, and is by far the most cost-effective CBD product you'll find anywhere.
But regardless of the product you use, adding a dose of CBD to your regular fruit smoothie makes for a delightful, invigorating, healthy breakfast that's sure to start the day off right.
