3 DIY's with CBD that you can use Every day

It’s no secret that CBD consumption has a long list of health benefits. It’s been proven to help reduce anxiety and depression, cure migraines, regulate digestion, and help with chronic pain.

It’s hard to believe a plant can have so many benefits for the body and mind. Once you know what your goals are from using CBD, you can decide on an affective method and find what works best for you and your condition.

Looking for some immediate relief? CBD tinctures are your best bet. Back’s been bothering you? A topical application, like a CBD cream, should do the trick!

 

 

With so many ways of using CBD, there’s plenty of space to get a little creative with how you use it, so we put together a list of our favourite DIY recipes and remedies

 

CBD Latte

Putting CBD oil in your coffee is a lovely (and discrete) way to add it to your daily routine, so why not treat yourself and make it a little more delicious with a homemade latte?

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of coffee (or 2 if its Monday)
  • 1 cup hemp milk (or milk of choice)
  • Water soluble CBD oil or tincture (or 2 tsp hemp oil)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tsp honey, date syrup, or sweetener of choice

This recipe will leave you feeling calm, focused, and ready to start your day. Simply combine the ingredients over low- medium heat in a saucepan. Enjoy it hot or chilled. 

 

CBD Bath Bombs

After a long, hectic day, one of the best ways to relax is with a nice warm bath. But if you’re looking for a whole new level of relaxation, try adding one of these CBD bath bombs to the mix.

 

 

Ingredients (makes 2 bath bombs): 

  • 4 oz (118 ml) baking soda
  • 2 oz (60 ml) citric acid
  • 2 oz (60 ml) corn starch
  • 2 oz (60 ml) Epsom salt
  • 1 tsp water
  • 5-10 drops of essential oil of your choice
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 200 mg CBD
  1. Combine the baking soda, corn starch, citric acid and salt in a bowl and whisk to remove any clumps.
  2. Mix the melted coconut oil with the other liquid ingredients.
  3. Gradually whisk the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients (If the mixture begins foaming, pour in the liquid more slowly). The mixture should be just moist enough to be able to be clumped together in your hand. If it’s slightly too dry, add a little more water.

Once the mixture is a good consistency, put it in molds of your choice. If you don’t want to buy bath bomb molds, muffin tins work just as well.

Leave them in their molds to dry overnight and they’ll be ready to use the next evening. The next steps are easy: fill your bath, drop a bomb, and chill.

 

CBD Cream

Another effective, yet discreet method of getting your daily dose of CBD is via creams and topicals. There are plenty on the market, but most are filled with unnecessary additives and chemicals.

 

 

This all natural formula is what you’ve been looking for you soothe your inflamed or irritated skin. It’s perfect for sun burns, muscle tension, and arthritic pain.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup shea butter or cocoa butter
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup aloe vera gel
  • 2 tsp concentrated CBD oil or tincture
  • An essential oil of your choice for fragrance
  1. Fill the bottom of a double boiler ( or heat-proof bowl on top of a sauce pan) with water over low-medium heat.
  2. Add the shea butter and coconut oil to the top of your double boiler.
  3. Gently melt the shea butter and coconut oil until there are no lumps, stirring frequently so it doesn’t burn.
  4. Once melted, transfer oil and butter mixture to a glass blender or heat-safe bowl and let cool for at least one hour.
  5. Add aloe vera gel, vegetable glycerine, as many drops as you’d like of essential oil, and your desired amount of CBD oil.
  6. Use a hand mixer or blender to create a whipped consistency and store in a container with a lid.

 

CBD is a natural remedy that’s been known to work for many people, with many health conditions. But it isn’t magic- it can’t cure everything.  If you’re experiencing severe discomfort, pain, or mental health concerns, we recommend talking to your doctor or a health care professional.
