How does CBD provide more focus?

In a life full of stimuli and distractions, it is important to relax. While taking a focus supplement is one way to support cognitive function, CBD is a good natural alternative.

Although there is still a long way to go in terms of quality research to test the ability of CBD early studies (and plenty of anecdotal evidence) suggest that being sharper or calming down may help.

Benefits of CBD for better focus

While research on hemp-derived CBD is only just getting started, the initial findings are promising. It evokes a sense of calm: “Factors that negate your ability to focus are stress and anxiety. CBD can support focus by helping to manage stress, enhance our sense of calm and regulate our mood,” explains holistic practitioner Sony Sherpa. In addition, recent research from 2019 and 2022 suggests that cannabidiol can promote a state of calm that can help us get into a focused flow.”

Better night's sleep

A bad night's sleep leaves us drowsy, irritable and unfocused the next day. Since most of the anecdotal and research-based support for CBD is related to its sleep-promoting benefits, taking CBD before bed can help you fall asleep more easily and stay asleep longer. A better night's sleep ensures better focus during the day. Pain in joints and inflammation can also distract and make daily tasks more difficult. Research suggests that cannabidiol supports the body's inflammatory response.

Types of CBD for focus

Cannabidiol has a different effect on everyone. There are several possibilities when people consider CBD for better focus. Full spectrum cannabidiol contains the full range of compounds (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, etc.), including less than 0,3% THC on a dry weight basis. Scientists say this combination of native plant compounds can interact with each other (entourage effect) to produce synergistic effects making it a go-to for the most comprehensive CBD experience.

Still, not everyone wants those traces of THC. That is why there is also broad spectrum hemp that still contains beneficial substances such as CBD, terpenes and flavonoids, but filters out the THC. Many people still claim to get many benefits from broad spectrum hemp products, but you may want to try the full spectrum first to see how it works (as long as you are not routinely drug tested).

Ways of use

There are several ways to use cannabidiol. When joint pain is the reason for a loss of concentration, a CBD ointment or cream can help. If mental problems, lack of sleep, unbalanced mood or sleep deprivation are the cause then a gummy, capsule or oil tincture may work. It is smart to start with a low dose and slowly increase it. It is wise to consult a doctor. Especially with medication.
