This is another question we get quite frequently.
Many curious CBD explorers are wondering if it's safe to take before or even during the workday to reduce stress and/or enhance the ability to focus.
The short answer is YES! It's perfectly safe and even beneficial.
In the relatively short time that CBD products have been on the market, there's already been a dramatic impact in boardrooms, classrooms, and across all industries as people take back control of their own health and wellness with cannabis-infused, non-psychoactive therapeutics.
University students, for example, are increasingly choosing CBD for studying (our Blumenes college kids, included).
Business executives are also reporting more and more that it helps them meet their personal and professional goals amid increasingly high-pressure environments.
Thanks to its range of benefits, a wide variety of products, and expanding availability, CBD is becoming a must-have in every professional's toolbox!
To provide the best CBD for focus, we at Blumenes created a full-spectrum CBD oil from naturally grown industrial hemp.
Industrial hemp plants are federally legal cannabis plants with a THC concentration no greater than 0.3%. That means that the difference between hemp CBD and THC is that, unlike marijuana, which can have THC concentrations over 30%, industrial hemp-derived products won’t give you a psychoactive effect.
With no such thing as a "CBD high" (again, zero psychoactive compounds), you won’t need to worry about a false positive on HR drug screenings.
To get this ultra-pure CBD for focus, we start with organic leaves, flowers, and stalks that are free from chemical fertilizers or insecticides.
Processed in a sterile environment in our pharmaceutical-grade California facility, our multi-million dollar equipment extracts both the full-spectrum CBD and the associated terpenes from the plant.
We then formulate our oil into the highest CBD concentration topical cream on the market (1,000mg) and send it out for testing at an independent lab to verify the purity and potency of our CBD cream.
That way, when you choose our CBD for studying or work, you know exactly what you’re putting into your body. Don't accept anything less.
Cannabidiol: Your Wellness Sidekick
Cannabidiol, commonly referred to by its abbreviation "CBD" works to support the function of your endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system regulates the function of other body systems by controlling the output of neurologic and chemical stimuli.
When the endocannabinoid system is out of balance, your whole body is out of balance.
Using CBD for focus and concentration helps your endocannabinoid system by encouraging the production of your body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, so it has the building blocks to function better.
In addition, CBD can mimic some other compounds in the body, directly affecting non-endocannabinoid receptors that help you feel better, as well.
And then, there are terpenes...
Terpenes are actually not cannabinoids, but they are active aromatic compounds found only in full-spectrum CBD.
When you use a full-spectrum CBD for focus, the terpenes are also introduced into your body, providing synergistic benefits to help you stay on task.
This "Entourage Effect" — as researchers call it — is part of what makes our full-spectrum CBD creams so potent.
Using CBD For Studying And Work
Because it supports one of the body’s main regulatory systems, CBD benefits focus in several ways.
Promotes A Positive Outlook – When you feel optimistic, you’re able to be confident in your decisions. This lets you act firmly and stay the course.
Helps Reduce Anxiety – A lot of people have challenges when trying to focus because of an overactive brain that constantly second-guesses itself. Beyond a lack of self-confidence, anxiety can manifest as a sense of impending disaster that keeps your mind preoccupied with problem-reaction-solution thinking. Taking CBD for focus or using CBD for studying helps you control these errant anxieties, and assist you in powering through the task in front of you.
Prevents Distracting Movements, Spasms, and Tics – If your hands, legs, or body just can’t stay still while you’re working, CBD can help. Many times these jolts are due to errant nerve impulses that your occupied brain can't really control. When you’re able to keep your body still, your mind is able to focus.
- Increases Alertness Without Jitters – Most people turn to caffeine when they need to focus and stay alert. Unfortunately, as caffeine levels rise, so do jitters and even tremors. CBD can help keep you stay alert without giving you the shakes, making it great for all-nighters or when getting ready for an exam.
How To Take Your CBD For Focus
There are several ways to add CBD to your daily health & wellness regimen.
It’s important to note that CBD is not a drug, doesn’t act like one, and for best results, you should use it daily for consistent results.
That being said, there is a perfect way to get your dose in however and whenever you need it.
Vaping – Vaping is now a socially acceptable and tasty way to get CBD before work, during work, at the gym, or even before bed. Pick your flavor and strength and puff your desired amount. The downside of vaping is that you are putting strain on your sensitive lungs. Even though the industry touts it as "safe," many reports of hospitalized teens and young adults have surfaced due to lung infection and disease in correlation to vaping.
Liquids/Tinctures/Oils – Usually packaged into handy dropper bottles, these products can be a good CBD supplement for focus. Just place your dose under your tongue, swallow it straight, or add it to your favorite beverage for a quick pick-me-up. The downside with liquid CBD is that many customers don't like the bitter taste, which is why companies have started adding all sorts of flavor-enhancing compounds—whether natural or not... which obviously dilutes the effectiveness of the oil and increases the price point, since you're now paying more money for less CBD.
Edibles – If you like to have a quick snack while staying busy, edibles like CBD gummies offer you a great option for dosing and satisfying your craving. However, again, to counteract the bitterness of CBD oil, manufacturers are pouring sugar, corn syrup, synthetic coloring, and all sorts of other "food-grade" chemicals into their products. Another downside of ingesting, by the time it finally crosses the blood-brain barrier, much of the CBD has already been uptaken by the body for other areas and functions.
- Topicals (our favorite) – Topical CBD doesn't usually come up when people think about CBD for focus, but if you have a muscle spasm that just won’t stop, a tense neck, or other localized spasms, a CBD lotion may be just what’s needed to get it calmed down and let you get back to work. A trick we encourage our customers to try, is to rub our Organic CBD Cream on both temples. This way, the full-spectrum CBD gets absorbed straight into the brain, without having to work its way from the stomach through the bloodstream. It's the only CBD-delivery system that doesn't have a downside!
