Hemp-derived CBD can be a helpful supplement for staying on top of inflammation and handling anxiety and depression. Read on for how to make this hemp-derived CBD blueberry breakfast smoothie.
Mornings can be a marathon: Shower, brush your teeth, get dressed, feed the dog (and maybe the kids), make sure everyone has everything they need and can get to everywhere they’re supposed to be. In the midst of all this, finding time to eat breakfast can be a stretch. If your life is always hectic, smoothies can be a great way to give your body the boost it needs from the jump. They’re quick and easy to make, and you can sip them on the train, in the car or at your desk.
Smoothies are also a convenient way to get a dose of daily superfoods. You know the ones—flax, chia, spirulina, maca and, of course, hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD). CBD can help to reduce inflammation and ease stress, which may make the mornings feel a little less harried.
We tend to think of hemp-derived CBD (and CBD in general) in an acute context: Got a migraine? Maybe a hemp-derived CBD tincture will provide quick relief. But the more we learn, the more it becomes clear that hemp-derived CBD may work well as a supplement.
Taking small amounts of hemp-derived CBD everyday may lead to better results than taking it only when an issue arises. Make our hemp-derived CBD blueberry breakfast smoothie for a tasty application.

How to Make Hemp CBD Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie
