Can You Use CBD to Boost Your Energy and Focus?

Back to blog

CBD is well-known for being a popular sleep aid and for its relaxation benefits, but did you know that you can also use CBD to help boost your energy and potentially improve focus? While some forms of CBD like our Valerian & Melatonin Capsules are designed to be taken before bed, other types of CBD can actually help be used for mental clarity and energy. Learn more about how you can use CBD to boost energy and focus by reading below. 

Can You Use CBD to Boost Your Energy and Focus

How Can I Use CBD for Energy and Focus?

To start, let’s clear up any misconceptions you may have about CBD. It is correct that a lot of people use CBD for relaxation and to help them sleep, but this is typically the case in larger doses (above 15mg). Lower doses of CBD (under 15mg) may actually have the opposite effect. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system. While higher doses of CBD may have a calming effect on some people, lower doses could be energizing. A 2014 study on the effects of cannabidiol showed that low doses may have a wake-promoting effect due to the way it acts as a dopamine-increasing agent. 

Stabilizing one’s dopamine receptors could make all the difference in how wakeful, alert, and focused they feel. By contrast, CBD could be used to boost energy and promote focus even when used as a sleep aid. If this seems way too far-fetched, just bear with us for a moment. The CDC reports that 1 in 3 American adults do not get adequate sleep on a regular basis. Chronic sleep deprivation can not only lead to a feeling of tiredness, but it could also be associated with high blood pressure, depression, and a negative mental and emotional state. Those who use CBD for a more restful sleep may experience better sleep during the night and more alertness during their waking hours, which could lead to more energy and focus.   

What Types of CBD are good for Energy and Focus?

  • Edibles
  • Capsules 

If you’re looking to use CBD to directly enhance energy and focus, the two best ways to do it are with edibles and capsules. 

  • CBD Edibles in the form of CBD coffee could be just what you need if you want an energy boost without the jitters. The calming properties of CBD work in tandem with coffee’s caffeine to gently uplift you without giving the typical spike and crash. 
  • CBD supplements may also be useful for delivering the vitality you need to stay clear and focused throughout your day; in fact, our Mental Clarity tablets are designed for just that. Then there’s our Supreme Vitality, which offers the health benefits of mushrooms including Reishi, Chaga, and Cordyceps. For another variety, we suggest our Super Greens tablets, complete with a blend of Spirulina, Chlorella, and Wheatgrass to take nutrient absorption and immune health to the next level.
