Can You Take CBD Every Day?

Can You Take CBD Every Day?

If you’ve heard of CBD, AKA cannabidiol, you’ve likely heard that it can be great for soothing body tension, easing discomfort, and promoting relaxation and calm.

And that’s true!

But are CBD products only for the occasional bouts of body discomfort or the once-in-a-while stress-induced sleep disturbance? What if you deal with symptoms like long-term discomfort or restlessness? Are there any health benefits to taking CBD even when you aren’t feeling stressed or tense? What’s more, should you?

Well, we are here to tell you that not only is it okay to take CBD every day, but we enthusiastically encourage it! So, can you take CBD everyday? Let’s get into it.

What Are the Benefits of Daily CBD Use?

CBD supplements can support your mental and physical wellness in a number of ways, especially when taken consistently.

CBD can actually build in the body when taken daily, allowing the effects to last longer every time you use it. And because CBD can build in fat-storing cells, it may stay within the body for up to several days to be released when needed.

Read on to learn more about the specific ways CBD from the cannabis plant can support your wellbeing!

Supports and Strengthens the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system (or the ECS) is an internal messaging system that uses naturally produced endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors (CB receptors), and enzymes to help the body maintain homeostasis.

The ECS helps monitor and regulate discomfort, sleep, appetite, and mood.

When the body is out of balance – as a result of stress or injury, for instance – the ECS produces endocannabinoids capable of binding with CB receptors throughout the central and peripheral nervous system.

These chemical reactions help send messages throughout the body that can help restore balance.

When endocannabinoids bind with CB receptors, it can assist in easing muscle tension, lowering cortisol levels (also known as the stress hormone), stimulating the appetite, and promoting sleep–among other things!

As a phytocannabinoid, CBD can work within the endocannabinoid system, providing an additional layer of support.

Basically, daily CBD use can help boost your ECS so that whenever irregularities arise within, the ECS is better able to provide balance throughout the mind and body.

Promotes Mental Wellness

When taken every day, any type of CBD product can provide a wealth of benefits to your mood and emotional well-being.

CBD can support endocannabinoids like anandamide (whose nickname is the “bliss molecule,” if you're wondering what anandamide can provide) as they bind to CB receptors in the brain.

Studies have found that CBD may also enhance serotonin levels and lower stress.

Because the active ingredients and compounds in CBD can help your body adapt to stress, taking it every day can boost your mood and help your body handle stressful situations as they arise.

Sleep Support

Taking CBD tinctures or other products when sleep is evading you into the wee hours of the night is a great way to help shut your mind down and promote sleep. Using a CBD product consistently can help improve your sleep quality overall and boost drowsiness when you need it.

While research is still being done to understand exactly how CBD helps support a night of restful zzz’s, there is evidence that taking low dose CBD before bed can help lead to more time spent in NREM Stage 3 Sleep. This is a deep sleep that uses up less energy than REM sleep, so that you wake up feeling more well-rested.

Getting more and better sleep each night goes far beyond how you feel when that alarm goes off in the morning.

Sleep provides our body and its many systems the time needed to refocus and reset. The immune system works best during sleep–those who get over seven hours of sleep a night are actually four times less likely to get sick than those who get between four and six hours of sleep per night.

Levels of the stress hormone cortisol also naturally decrease as we sleep, while production of other beneficial hormones such as Insulin Growth Factor (which plays a role in muscle growth) go up. And sleep is vital for cognitive function – if you’ve experienced that hazy brain fog following a sleepless night, you don’t need us to tell you this one!

Clearly, sleep is pretty important. Daily CBD use can positively impact all of these areas, just by helping you get that improved shut-eye.

Eases Tension and Discomfort

If you deal with chronic tension or discomfort, such as muscle soreness or swollen joints, taking CBD every day can help.

CBD’s naturally soothing properties can support the ECS in providing relief found throughout the body, as endocannabinoids bind with CBD receptors at the source of discomfort. As CBD builds in the body through consistent use, its soothing effects can last longer!

Aids With Muscle Recovery

CBD can also support muscle soreness related to DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). So, if you hit the gym regularly (or regularly enough), taking CBD post-workout and in the days following can help reduce soreness as it hits and aid in the muscle recovery process overall.

Rejuvenating Skin Care

CBD’s natural benefits can flow from the inside out! Because our skin cells house lots of CB receptors, the ECS can use cannabinoids to support healthy skin growth and repair.

When used daily over a period of a few weeks, the naturally soothing properties of CBD can help the ECS reduce the visibility of scarring, blemishes, and even acne, as CB receptors exist in the sebaceous glands responsible for producing oil in the skin.

Are There Any Risks With Taking CBD Daily?

CBD is extremely safe, and there are no adverse side effects associated with ongoing CBD use. In clinical studies, participants often take CBD daily for months at a time with no issue.

Are There Any Side Effects?

The few and minor side effects associated with CBD largely took place when extremely large doses were taken at once, rather than with ongoing daily usage.

Many of the side effects were also related to sensitivity to the carrier oil used in CBD oils. Side effects may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Head and neck tension
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue

CBD Dosage

CBD has been safely studied in doses as high as 1,500 per day, but this is far more than anyone really needs to feel the beneficial effects. To best avoid side effects, it is typically recommended to take no more than 100 mg of CBD per day.

Everyone is different, so you’ll likely want to experiment a bit to find the amount of CBD that works for you. On average, a low to average dose is often considered anywhere between 20mg to 40mg per day.

We recommend starting with ten milligrams and working your way up by another five to ten milligrams a day until you feel the desired effects.

Starting low will help you find your ideal dose while avoiding side effects and also helping you avoid moving through products faster than necessary if your dose ends up being on the lower end!

Is CBD Addictive?

CBD is not considered addictive or habit-forming. In fact, CBD has been used to help lessen the undesired effects of consuming high amounts of intoxicating substances from the cannabis Sativa plant, such as THC or tetrahydrocannabinol.

How Can You Take CBD?

CBD comes in a number of convenient forms with high bioavailability that you can fit into your daily routine. This includes:


CBD oil is a popular and versatile option that combines CBD with a carrier oil like hemp seed oil, making it easy for the body to absorb into the bloodstream. It is a great option for finding the right dose for you, as it is easy to control and change the dose as needed.

You can hold a few drops under your tongue for 90 seconds or mix them into a favorite drink.

CBD Gummies

CBD gummies make getting your daily dose of CBD as fun and flavorful as can be! Taking one before bed or on the go is a breeze, and they can satisfy your sweet tooth along with your wellness needs. With flavors as enjoyable as Raspberry Lemonade, how could you ever miss a day?

CBD Capsules or Softgels

CBD capsules and softgels are easily consumable and tasteless forms of CBD. Keep a bottle by your bed for easy access morning or night, or throw in your bag to have on hand whenever you need a boost.

CBD Powder

Our CBD powder stands apart from other consumable options because it is actually water-soluble. This means that the body can absorb it without requiring fat (such as that found in oils) to break it down.

You can easily mix CBD powder into just about any food or drink, easily incorporating it into one of your meals or snacks every day!

CBD Topicals

Topicals, like creams, are applied directly to the skin as needed and can support dry or irritated skin, reduce blemishes over time, and help ease discomfort beneath the skin.

The Bottom Line

Taking CBD on a daily basis can not only help ease tension and discomfort when needed, but also support your overall wellness by providing sleep support, lowering stress levels, and nourishing your skin.

At evo hemp, our hemp-derived CBD is sustainably sourced from BIPOC farmers and third-party tested. Hemp products you can feel good about taking every single day.
