Workout and Recovery with CBD

New Year, New You 

The new year is here!  If you’re like 45% of people who made a New Year’s Resolution last year, you’re looking to get in better shape in 2019.  But the doldrums are also here. We’ve already established that you’re likely carrying a few extra pounds, and it already sucks getting to the gym before work and…

We know you have the will power to concur these challenges.  That workout can really add up to some pain, though. Pain can stop your workout in its tracks no matter how motivated you might be. Proper recovery is essential for maintaining your body’s health. Especially as you add the stresses of a workout and weight loss plan.

CBD can help with renewal

CBD-rich full spectrum hemp oil is a fantastic addition to your recovery planning.  Proper rest, timing, nutrition, and focus can all help improve recovery periods. Nothing addresses more common problems with recovery than alleviating inflammation though.

Inflammation is an immune response triggered by what the body perceives to be injury, foreign substances, or infection.  The body floods affected areas with lymph and blood in an attempt to combat whatever damage may have occurred.  This is very useful in healing the body. But can also cause extraneous problems when the immune system is “tricked” into a response. These tricks can be otherwise harmless stimuli like allergens and certain auto immune responses, and sometimes even beneficial stimuli, like exercise and lifting weights.

CBD is very effective in combating inflammation in the body.  Its stimulation of the body’s natural cannabinoid receptors helps the body regulate immune response. This reduces inflammation both acutely and systemically.  Our line of full spectrum hemp oils are made from whole plant material. They also include an abundance of terpenes and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been independently verified helpful in reducing inflammation.  Whole plant material also contains a variable blend of additional cannabinoids, flavonoids and other potentially beneficial compounds.
