Did you know that CBD is full of vitamins, nutrients, and essential fatty acids? In fact, you can get most of your daily nutrients from CBD. Here are just some of the essential vitamins and nutrients you will be getting:
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin Bs
- Fatty Acids including Omega 3 and Omega 6
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Calcium, magnesium, and potassium
Although CBD is packed with nutritional value, it does not replace a good multivitamin and doesn’t contain the full recommended daily dose. However, it is a great way to start getting a little extra.
Not only are you getting a daily dose of some incredible nutrients, but CBD has amazing benefits for various ailments that may plague you.
Furthermore, research has also found that CBD helps the body maintain homeostasis by interacting with our endocannabinoid system.
For more information on the endocannabinoid system, read “All You Need to Know About the Endocannabinoid System.”
CBD directly affects are endocannabinoid system by binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors found throughout the body. These receptors use cannabinoids to promote homeostasis in the following ways:
- Relieving depression
- Lowering blood pressure
- Decreasing intestinal problems
- Increasing brain-derived neurotrophic factor (vital to learning, working memory, and higher thinking).
- Lowering anxiety
- Reducing fear

So, here are 10 incredible ways to get CBD into your daily diet:
#1 Blend it Into Your CBD Coffee
Most people need their daily cup of coffee before they can even function, so why not pack your coffee with a little more nutrition. Not only will it give you the energy you need to have a great day, but mixed with your coffee, CBD provides an overall great way to wake up.
If you like a little flavor in your coffee, skip the creamer and sugar and add a some of Nuvelio Natural’s spearmint CBD tincture. Or, you can make it into a latte by adding a little spearmint flavor to your vanilla latte.
#2 Eat it as CBD Snacks
The great thing about CBD hitting the market by storm is that you not only have tinctures and capsules, but you have a multitude of hemp infused snacks to choose from. Here are just a few ideas:
- Goodbites Truffles
- Hemp Heart bites
- CBD protein bars
- CBD cookies
#3 Infuse it Into CBD Honey and Drizzle
One way people are getting their daily dose of CBD oil is by mixing it into their favorite all natural honey and then using it as a drizzle or a spread. My personal favorite is some toasted sourdough bread with peanut butter and bananas drizzled with honey. It is delicious and nutritious.
#4 Blend it Into Your Favorite CBD Salad Dressing
Of course, you don’t have to try and get your dose of CBD in when you wake up. If you are like many people who don’t have time to eat breakfast, you can mix your CBD in with your favorite salad dressing or drizzle it over your salad. It pairs nicely with a lemon-garlic salad dressing and kale.
#5 Mix it into Your Dinner
Many people have found that CBD gives them a relaxed or sleepy feeling. In that case, you wouldn’t want to take your CBD in the morning or during the day. So, try adding it to your favorite dish in the evening or placing it in a glass of chocolate milk. Nuvelio Natural’s spearmint CBD tincture would pair perfectly with a big glass of chocolate milk.
#6 Use it at Bedtime
If you are using CBD to help with your insomnia, you are going to want to take it at night. So, you will want to take 40-160 mg of CBD oil in the evening. A great way to get that in is to add it to a cup of decaffeinated tea, a glass of milk, or a cup of hot chocolate. Not only does the CBD help you get your Zzzzz, but research has shown that a glass of warm milk relaxes and warms you getting the body ready for sleep.
#7 Blend up a CBD Smoothie
CBD has a lot of great vitamins, nutrients, and essential fatty acids, but when you couple that with a healthy fruit and veggie smoothie, you are sure to get your day on the right start. Not only is it a great way to get all your nutrients in at one time, but the spearmint of the CBD tincture adds a little kick.
#8 Sip it in a Glass of CBD Beer
Research suggests that 1.4 pints of beer a day for men, and half of that for women is actually heart healthy. So, if you are going to have a glass of beer anyway, you might as well add a dose of CBD oil to the mix.
#9 Combine it with Your CBD Artichoke Dip
Most CBD has an earthy tone to it which would pair perfectly with veggies such as artichoke. Not to mention, parmesan cheese, cream cheese, garlic, and a few chips; how could you not devour the whole thing?
#10 Sprinkle it on Your CBD Popcorn
For a healthy snack and a Netflix and chill kind of day, sprinkle a little CBD oil on your popcorn with some melted butter and salt. Remember, however, to put the CBD on after you have given your popcorn a chance to cool for a minute. High heat can destroy the medicinal properties of the CBD oil.
