Updated: Nov 12, 2021
Are you feeling stressed out? Did turning back the clock remind you time is ticking before the holidays hit? Deep inhale (hold it) BIG exhale. Relax. Meditation plus CBD helps calm your racing mind, so you can feel OM-azing as you tackle your to-do list.

For starters, cannabidiol promotes mindfulness, which is essential for meditation…
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness means staying focused in the moment—preventing past and future distractions to invade the brain. It’s not easy! Mindfulness takes plenty of practice, but if you keep at it, you’ll feel more productive and less stressed for the season. Imagine that.
How does cannabidiol help?
CBD has been around for thousands of years. This cannabinoid from the Cannabis Sativa plant delivers safe, calming relief that improves mental and physical wellbeing without getting you high.
CBD promotes mindfulness due to its anti-stress and anti-inflammatory properties. Calming cannabidiol alleviates soreness and stress all over, so you can stay focused on the many tasks at hand.
Combined, CBD and meditation are the perfect calming combo to help you feel zen-
How Does CBD Help with Meditation?
CBD promotes relaxation, which calms the body and mind, so you can decompress enough to focus inward. Many people struggle to sit still and chill out. Is that you? If so, try adding CBD oil and/or gummies to your daily meditation regimen to eliminate fidgeting and increase focus.
Not all CBD products are as effective for meditation. Larger doses of cannabidiol can help you feel calmer faster, so CBD oils and gummies are the way to go.
Our CBD oil tinctures come in several strengths, ranging from 450mg to 1350mg, which are available in broad-spectrum or full-spectrum variations. Each tincture contains only USDA Certified Organic ingredients, so you can achieve peace of mind (and body) naturally.
Our CBD gummies are 100% delicious and junk-free—no artificial flavors or beef gelatin added. Each gummy delivers 10mg of broad-spectrum goodness to help take the edge off a busy day. It’s candy-like healing that calms you down. You might need two—or more—to do the trick, but you can’t overdose, so find your “sweet spot” of relaxation and continue that dosage daily.
What to Expect When Combining CBD and Meditation
For starters, consistency is key for successful mediation. Continue practicing mindfulness and taking your optimal dose of CBD daily to achieve the best state of mind and body.
It might take a few weeks to feel the calming effects of CBD and meditation. Results vary from person to person, depending on weight and overall health.
Combining cannabidiol and meditation can help maintain a good mood—even during the hectic holidays!
CBD timing is important. Don’t expect immediate calm to wash over you once you take it. Remember, everyone’s body reacts differently, so figure out the best CBD delivery method and timing for YOU and plan your meditation accordingly.
Meditation for Stress

Here are some of the stress-busting emotional benefits of meditation:
Better perspective during stressful situations
Stronger stress management skills
Reduced negative feelings
Ways to Practice Meditation on Your Own
You don’t need trained instructors to teach you how to chill out. Sure, those group classes can work wonders, but if you don’t have the time, or the money, practice on your own.
Here are some ways to meditate on your own, whenever and wherever you choose:
Take your CBD. Let the calming effects kick in before you begin meditation.
Breathe deeply. Focus on your breathing, listening as you inhale and exhale. Breathe slowly and deeply. If the mind wanders, bring your focus back to the sound of your breath.
Repeat a mantra. Create your own mantra or use one from a religious teaching. Repeat your mantra over and over and over and o…v…e…r until you feel like mellow Jell-O.
Scan your body. Imagine breathing relaxation into and out of various parts of your body.
Meditate while you walk. Slow down your walking pace and focus on the movement of your legs and feet, not the destination. Repeat words like “lifting” and “moving” in your mind with each step.
Read and reflect. Read poems and reflect on their meaning. You can adapt these meditations as needed in the moment.
Remember, mindful meditation takes practice, so be kind to yourself as you train your brain to focus.
“It’s a zone of no judgment—and that’s a sigh of relief.” ~ Cynthia McFadden
