Now that Illuminate has been out in the world for a year, I have observed and collected reports from friends and patients on how they’ve incorporated Illuminate into their routines.
When formulating Illuminate, I used an Eastern Medicine approach with the goal to provide consumers with a natural alternative to handle anxious feelings and emotions and to help patients to lower the dosage of their prescription anxiety medications. While our noted suggested use is 3 capsules, 2-3 times per day, there are many benefits / uses for Illuminate and depending on what you’re hoping to get out of it you may not need the full dosage.
Below, I outlined common uses of Illuminate as a guide and to help you get the best out of this very multi-use product.
Mental Clarity / Increased Focus
Illuminate is fantastic for mental clarity and increased cognitive function. For increased focus and to assist with brain fog take 2 capsules 20 - 30 minutes before beginning work. You can also empty two capsules into your favorite morning beverage, my favorite is our Golden Milk Illumi-latte when I have time, otherwise coffee or tea.
If you’re experiencing occasional anxiety, take 2 capsules when you begin to feel signs of anxiety, you should feel relief and an overall sense of calm within 20 minutes.
Event Induced Stress / Anxiety
Anxious, stressed or nervous for an upcoming event, meeting or interview? Take 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to the event to begin with ease. For longer events, take 2 additional capsules should feelings of anxiety arise later in the day.
If you had a stressful day and need help winding down or often have a challenge getting a restful sleep, take 2-3 capsules 20-30 minutes before sleeping.
If you have anxiety that has been present in your life for an extended period of time, take 2-3 capsules 2-3 times daily. You might find that after sometime, lower dosage is enough.
Everyone experiences stresses of daily life differently and also have different sensitivity to CBD. I have many patients that take 1-2 capsules occasionally when needed and others that take 9 capsules daily to help with more severe symptoms.
There is no one dosage that works for everyone but if you’re wondering where to start, I hope you will find this guide helpful!
Play with it until you find your sweet spot!
