To date, CBD has shown remarkably positive clinical results helping with hard-to-treat chronic and neurological pain and inflammation, such as that associated with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease, and has been approved as an effective medication for two types of childhood epileptic seizures that accompany Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. But beyond these remarkable results, CBD can help with many ailments that, although less chronic, impair our daily functioning: stress and anxiety, restlessness, minor aches and pains.
Much like a teenage girl, the ECS is complicated, and the extent of what it helps to regulate within our bodies is an ongoing investigation. But this complicated nature is exactly the reason CBD is so versatile: it can help regulate functions we might not even be aware of yet. Moreover, because ECS receptors are found pervasively within the body and brain, and even close to the surface of our skin, CBD’s therapeutic potential reaches even further. So whether you’re eating it, dropping it under your tongue, or applying it to sore muscles, CBD works where it’s needed.
And because of this, producers and sellers have put CBD in everything from beer to bathwater. But if you’re looking for a few new, inventive ideas to try at home, we’ve got you covered. Without further adieu, here are three easy things to try with CBD to incorporate it into your day:
DIY Acne Treatment Mask –
CBD is known for helping with things within our bodies, but it’s also great for helping improve the appearance of our skin as well! CBD oil contains a large amount of vitamins, fatty acids and minerals that nourish and protect the skin. But beyond this CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, it’s ability to reduce sebum production, and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal nature makes it an excellent acne fighting companion.
Simply remove the flesh of the avocado into a bowl and mash until smooth. Then add all other ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Apply to a freshly washed face and leave on for 10 minutes. Wash your face thoroughly and apply your favorite moisturizer/serums.

If you experience trouble switching off before hitting the hay, this CBD application will have you drifting off in no time. Ingesting CBD creates a subtle, prolonged experience, which is ideal for drifting off and sleeping all the way through the night.
- 1 cup tart cherry juice
- 1 cup white grape juice
- 1/2 dropper valerian root tincture
- Preferred dose of good quality CBD oil
Just combine all ingredients and ingest about an hour before bed. Both tart cherries and grapes have naturally high amounts of melatonin, and valerian root has been used throughout history as a natural sleep aid. To take CBD’s potential to the next level, try drinking it before a night time meditation!
Super Simple CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you’re sick of awkwardly trying to find some peace and quiet to drop some CBD oil under your tongue in the office, why not incorporate it into your favorite cookie recipe to be enjoyed at home and on the go?
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup softened butter
- 5 oz Unflavored, good quality CBD Oil

- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F/160 degrees C
- Place the softened butter mixed with CBD, brown sugar, and white sugar in a bowl and cream until smooth
- Beat in the eggs one at a time before stirring in the vanilla extract
- Add salt, baking soda, and flour together in a separate bowl and combine – then add dry ingredients to wet and incorporate chocolate chips
- Drop large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans then, then bake for about 10 minutes
Of course, we would advise using the best quality CBD products for any experimentation. The brand should be able to provide a lab test result to solidify their transparency and best practices. If you want to branch out into further and more experimental applications, it’s best talking to a medical professional for the best possible advice. But, with a little guidance and a lot of fun, you can explore many easy ways to use CBD a little bit differently!
