Ways to Use CBD

We here at Enliven Essentials have heard from many of our clients about all the ways hemp extract has helped them, from relieving anxiety and pain to encouraging deep, restful sleep. We want the benefits of CBD to be available to everyone, which is why we offer a range of hemp extract products for every lifestyle. Are you ready to introduce full-spectrum hemp extract into your life and live better? Try these # different methods and find what works for you.


Vaping is the fastest way to introduce hemp extract to your system, so you can feel its effects within minutes. When you choose vaping, CBD is absorbed through the large surface area of your lungs and enters your bloodstream, all without the unwanted side effects of smoking. If you already have a vaping device, you can add our full-spectrum hemp extract oil to any e-liquid. We also offer our own vape cartridge with 100 milligrams of active hemp extract ready to go out of the box.

Sublingual Application

Sublingual – or under the tongue – application is another fast, direct form of delivery. The hemp extract is absorbed through the membranes of your mouth and into your bloodstream without the time delay or lost potency of ingestion. When you eat or swallow hemp extract, it experiences what’s called “first-pass metabolism”, which can reduce the effects of our products. Sublingual application surpasses this step for a more effective delivery. Order our essential hemp extract oil, place a drop or two under your tongue, wait 60–90 seconds, and then swallow. It’s a great option if you have trouble taking pills or other forms of medication!

Topical Application

If you have the patience for slow-acting but long-lasting effects, try our Hemp pain cream! This can be applied to your skin like lotion for targeted effects. Do you experience localized pain or inflammation? You can apply our healing cream right where it hurts for relief without the use of NSAIDs like ibuprofen. 


One of the most versatile ways to add hemp extract to your life is to add it to your diet! Enliven Essentials offers many options that are easy to incorporate into your lifestyle. Try our delicious vegan dark chocolate with 10 milligrams of active hemp extract or add our naked hemp extract oil to your favorite recipes! We also offer CBD gel capsules that you can take with your daily vitamins. Ingesting CBD is not always as effective as other methods of delivery because it takes time to be metabolized and it can lose potency through first-pass metabolism. 

What Method Works for You?

If you have never tried hemp extract before, it can be hard to know where to start. Remember that – regardless of what method of delivery you choose – you should start with a low dose and increase your intake slowly over time until you find what makes you comfortable. We are not doctors or physicians here at Enliven Essentials, so we encourage you to do your own research and talk with your healthcare practitioner about how to best incorporate hemp extract into your life. If you have any questions about our full-spectrum hemp extract products, contact us today!

CBD for Kids

The popularity of CBD and hemp extract is skyrocketing, and the scientific research supporting their benefits is finally starting to catch up. The inspiring story of Charlotte Figi and how hemp extract helped her bounce back from a debilitating medical condition has garnered more attention than ever. More evidence is published every day to support the role CBD plays in everything from pain and inflammation relief to a reduction in anxiety or insomnia, and many parents are asking themselves: can CBD help their families?

Get the Facts

There is a lot of misinformation and public stigma around CBD that can make it hard to know if what you’re learning is accurate. Here at Enliven Essentials, we encourage you to do your research, and we work hard to give you honest, trustworthy information. First things first: hemp extract is not the same thing as marijuana and you are not getting your child high when you give them our products! We use full-spectrum hemp extract created from low-THC, high-CBD plants, so you and your family can experience the benefits of CBD without any psychoactive side effects. Our products are legal and contain less than 1% THC, the ingredient encouraged in high concentrations in most marijuana plants. Using full-spectrum hemp extract also means that our products contain not only therapeutic CBD, but also other vitamins, terpenes, and beneficial compounds found in cannabis.

A Safe, Natural Solution

Do you worry about giving your kids powerful pharmaceutical drugs with potentially nasty side effects? Hemp extract is a natural solution to many conditions, and studies on the safety and side effects show that hemp extract is most likely safe for everyone, even in high doses and with extended use. Especially if your other options are dangerous NSAIDs or opioids, hemp extract is an alternative treatment without the treat of addiction. Here at Enliven Essentials, our products are third party tested for quality and safety so we can ensure that you are getting the best possible full-spectrum hemp extract. Every product is clearly labeled with the amount of active hemp extract per serving, so you know exactly what you’re getting. Enliven Essentials cares about you and your family, and we feel it is important to point out that there are few medical studies on CBD therapy for children and any potential long-term side effects. Restrictions on cannabis, a plant from which CBD can be extracted, have made extensive research next to impossible. If you have concerns about treating your children with hemp extract, we encourage you to speak to your pediatrician or health practitioner. You can also contact us at any time for more information about our products. For the health and safety of your kids, make sure that you begin CBD therapy with a very small dose and adjust the dosage over time to align with your child’s comfort and wellbeing.

How CBD Can Help

Hemp extract interacts with our endocannabinoid system, a natural element of the human body that operates much like our nervous system. The endocannabinoid system – or ECS – has been well researched and found to affect our experience of pain, inflammation, anxiety, as well as mood, appetite, and more! As we mentioned, there are few studies in humans to directly support the use of CBD and hemp extract in treating symptoms connected to your endocannabinoid system, but you can find thousands of testimonials from people hemp extract has helped. Enliven Essentials can’t make any medical claims or recommendations, but we can report the powerful responses from families across the country who have seen the amazing effects of CBD! Families of children with epilepsy report reduced seizures, better sleep, and improved mood with CBD therapy. Hemp extract also has scientific support for its anti-anxiety properties and improvement of sleep quality, from patients with social anxiety disorder to this case study of a child with PTSD. Has hemp extract helped your family? Let us know and spread the word on social media!

CBD for Pets

Hemp extract benefits in humans are well documented, but what about our furry friends? The benefits of hemp extract stem from its interaction with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a system found in all mammals, including dogs and cats. There is plenty of scientific evidence backing up the role of ECS in regulating pain, inflammation, appetite, mood, appetite and much more, so it follows that our pets could also benefit from full-spectrum hemp extract products. It’s important to remember that while there is little if any medical research on the benefits or downsides of CBD, but there are mountains of anecdotal evidence to the efficacy of high-CBD hemp extract.

Pet Owners Love Hemp Extract

Does your dog experience anxiety when it comes to thunderstorms or fireworks? Does your cat have bad back or joint pain? You can find thousands of stories from dedicated pet owners who found hemp extract to be an amazing solution , whether it helped prevent seizures in cases of serious epilepsy or renewed life and energy in pets with a terminal illness. A survey of hundreds of pet owners found that many of them used hemp extract products to help their dogs and cats, often for conditions diagnosed by a veterinarian. Many of them also said their vet reacted positively to their use of hemp extract!

Try Our CBD Pet Treats Today!

If your vet expresses hesitation and concern when you ask about using hemp extract products, remember that there are severe restrictions on the use and study of CBD. Vets simply can’t make any research-based suggestions. The future of hemp extract in science and medicine is very optimistic, however, and many pet owners can attest to its effectiveness. So can Enliven Essential’s Chief Dog, Bruce! Help the pets you love live their best lives, too, with our hemp extract pet snacks!

Important Things to Remember

Before you offer your cat or dog hemp extract, keep in mind that it will affect pets differently than it affects humans. Your dog or cat is much smaller than a human being and can only metabolize so much at a time. Enliven Essentials’ pet snacks contain one milligram of hemp extract in each biscuit, and we recommend no more than two biscuits a day. Start with one biscuit at first and observe your pet’s comfort level — too much hemp extract can make them sick. THC is toxic to dogs and cats, and while we here at Enliven Essentials only use hemp extract from low-THC, high-CBD plants, there is a risk. For more information, read the ingredients and instructions for our hemp extract pet snacks or contact us today!


CBD for Athletes

When you’re an athlete, your body takes a beating. Pushing your limits takes its toll whether you play a full-contact sport like football or if it’s just you and the track. Hemp extract can help you stay on top of your game. Whether you’re a professional or a student athlete, an ultramarathoner or a weekend warrior, you need to know how cannabinoids like CBD can benefit you.

CBD Is Not Marijuana

What is “hemp extract”? That’s probably what you’re wondering if you’re new to this website and this industry. The first thing you should know is that hemp extract is not the same thing as marijuana. Hemp extract and CBD can come from cannabis, but there is a major difference between what you might have seen in someone’s college dorm and our products here at Enliven Essentials. Most marijuana is made from cannabis plants that are high in THC. Enliven’s hemp extract products are made from hemp plants bred for high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. That means you get all the benefits without the psychoactive effect. Explore our blog to learn more!

Can You Use CBD?

Because CBD can come from cannabis, it can often be swept up into rules and regulations about marijuana. Fortunately, the distinction is becoming increasingly clear as new scientific research comes to light and word spreads about the benefits of hemp extract. Restrictions on CBD will depend on the governing body of your sport, but the World Anti-Doping Agency recently took cannabidiol off their list of banned substances for 2018. They recently also raised the levels of THC they will accept, so you don’t have to worry about the trace amounts of THC left in our products.

Advantages of CBD for Athletes

The cannabinoids in hemp extract can help make life better in a lot of ways, but for athletes, the benefits you’ll look for most will probably be pain and inflammation relief. Several American athletes and people around the world have attested to the reduced pain and inflammation that come with CBD use. Hemp extract also offers safe, alternative pain relief so you can avoid NSAIDs and highly addictive opioids, and reduced inflammation and pain lead to faster recovery from injuries. Hemp extract is also an excellent sleep aid and can reduce game-day anxiety without the lingering depressive effects of other medications.

Pro Athletes Speak Out

CBD is gaining traction as a supplement and alternative pain treatment among athletes thanks to many who have stepped forward to speak in support of products like hemp extract. UFC fighter Nate Diaz openly used CBD in the form of a vape pen in a post-fight conference and explained its benefits. Several NFL players have also spoken out in defense of CBD, including Eugene Monroe and Derrick Morgan. Both have joined a campaign called When the Bright Lights Fade, which is pushing for research on how cannabinoids can help victims of brain injury. More research is published every day on the positive effects of hemp extract and CBD, and in the near future, hemp extract products will likely become an accepted part of mainstream medicine.
