Your Self-Care Routine is Important
Self-care is a critical part of any happy, healthy, holistic lifestyle!
It's a simple way to say "I love you" to yourself every day.
And adding cannabis to your self-care routine is a great way to help take care of yourself mentally and emotionally.
Having a self-care routine is about making time throughout the day to check in with yourself and make sure that you are feeling your best.
But it doesn't always come that easy.
Whether it be the fear that there is just not enough time in the day to add one more thing to the to-do list, or the overwhelm of knowing where to get started, taking that first step towards creating a self-care routine can be the hardest.
That is why I’ve put together five of my favorite ways to easily add cannabis to your self-care routine to help get you started.
But before we get started, the one thing I cannot stress enough is the important fact that there is no right way to do self-care.
I just want you to create a routine that works for you and your lifestyle!
Supplement with Cannabis
Smart supplementation can play an important role in any daily self-care routine and healthy lifestyle.
Many of my community members who use cannabis take it simultaneously with their vitamins, probiotics, and other supplements.
This is perfect because the cannabinoids and terpenes found within the plant can interact with and nourish our endocannabinoid system.
One of the most popular ways to supplement is with sublingual tinctures.
Depending on your specific needs, you can choose which cannabinoid is best to supplement with, including:
- CBD oil - best for general wellness, managing inflammation, anxiety control
- CBG oil - best for mood enhancement, focus, and energy throughout the day
- THC oil - best for pain relief, anxiety, and depression management
- CBN oil - best for help falling asleep and staying asleep
Another popular option for many consumers is to make and fill capsules.
Capsules are easy to consume and are easy to add along with your other daily supplements.
Cannabis For Skincare
Our skin is the body's largest organ, which is why it is so important to take time to care for our skin.
Both men and women are rapidly discovering how amazing cannabis can be for skin health.
Hemp seed oil is a nourishing botanical that contains important nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Many cannabis topical products also contain cannabinoids, which provide relief for a wide range of symptoms because they are absorbed directly through the skin1.
Here they interact with receptors from our endocannabinoid system and provide targeted relief for common skin symptoms like pain, inflammation, dry skin, acne, and more.
You can make amazing personal care products infused with cannabis at home or your can purchase them for quick and convenient use.
My favorite homemade topical recipes that are perfect for self-care include:
If you don't have the time or desire to make your own products at home, I have some amazing products available in my shop:
- Full-Spectrum CBD Skin & Face Cream - my personal favorite!
- Full-Spectrum Recovery Salve - a thick cream that can be applied anywhere on the skin
- Full-Spectrum Muscle Recovery Stick - the best product for helping to relieve pain from sore muscles and body aches
- Topical CBD Roll-On - a customer favorite because it is packaged in a convenient travel-size roller-ball bottle that can be used discreetly at home or on the go!
Add Cannabis to Food & Drinks
Sometimes, adding one more thing to the to-do list can feel like too much.
That’s why many members of my community prefer adding cannabis directly to their food and drinks because they are already eating and drinking anyways!
And with so many options for making sweet treats, healthy treats, and everything between - it's easy to make cannabis fit into just about any diet.
You can learn more about how to cook with CBD oil and how to make your own edibles here.
You can also easily make homemade edibles with store-bought products like cannabis concentrates.
If you're brand new to working with cannabis concentrates, you can learn more in my guide to making edibles with concentrates here.
If you prefer to stick with the store-bought route, you can find all of my delicious cannabis gummies available in the shop:
Cannabis at Bedtime
Bedtime routines are all unique, but many of my community members swear by including CBN in their cannabis routine for a good night's sleep.
Research published in Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology suggests that cannabinoids like CBD and CBN may help to improve sleep quality, decrease sleep disturbances, and decrease sleep onset latency2.
CBN is another cannabinoid that is nicknamed 'the sleep cannabinoid'.
You can either make your own CBN oil at home or purchase it from my shop. We have several CBN products to try:
You can add the oil to your bedtime routine by winding down with a relaxing CBD massage or incorporating it into your nightly meditation routine and applying it to the head, neck, and shoulders to release tension.
Cannabis For Stress Management
While we can focus on stress prevention, the truth is that stress happens in all of our lives on a daily basis.
Any sensible self-care routine should include a stress-management plan with many tools for when things get rough, and stress hits an all-time high.
For many people, having cannabis readily available in many forms is a stress management secret weapon.
For quick-acting relief, many of my community members prefer dry herb vaping or vaping cannabis oil.
Vaping is a quick-acting, 1-3 minute, way to consume cannabis and experience the immediate effect of calm, taming mood swings, and restoring control of your emotions.
There are potential benefits of vaping cannabis depending on each individual, your certain circumstances, and your individual health goals.
If you want to give this method a try, I exclusively recommend this CBD vape cartridge product which was formulated with quality, safety, and purity in mind.
Cannabis For Mental and Physical Health
I always tell my community members that, just like anything else, there is no magic pill or cure-all that will magically erase stress and anxiety.
Cannabis should be used as a tool, in conjunction with various other stress and anxiety-relieving modalities, for maximum effectiveness.
This includes good sleep, proper nutrition, exercise, and other stress management techniques for a more holistic approach to stress and anxiety management.

I want to make THC tincture but I live in California and can buy 190 proof alcohol. Do you have any suggestions on where to purchase/deliver etc. I have looked at several sites but they won’t ship to California.
Hey Rebecca, I'm sorry to hear this! I wish I knew of a better solution for you. The only other thing I've heard of people doing is getting it from another state, say you were on a road trip or something and bringing it back home with them.
