Since the US government legalized hemp in 2018, pro athletes have become some of CBD’s biggest cheerleaders. Everyone from Mike Tyson to Rob Gronkowski is now touting CBD oil’s miraculous effects. But that doesn’t mean you need to be a marathon runner to derive benefits from this non-psychoactive cannabinoid.
If you’ve set a New Year’s resolution to get fit, CBD can give you the extra push to keep you on track. Here are a few ways you could use our high-quality hemp products to help you achieve your fitness goals.
You’re probably tired of hearing doctors tell you to drink more water—but chances are you need to drink more water! This is especially the case if you’re going to sweat it out on the treadmill. More than half of Americans are already dehydrated, which means athletes should be extra careful about their water intake.
FYI: If you’d like to learn more about the importance of proper hydration, be sure to read our previous blog posts.
Although CBD can help you push through a workout, this cannabinoid really shines after you leave the gym. Most athletes who swear by CBD primarily use topicals to soothe their achy joints.
If you’re looking for fast relief from post-workout sores, we’d recommend looking into our Sport Muscle Recovery Balm. Packaged in a convenient roll-on tube, this product contains 500 mg of our proprietary Bio-Nano CBD. On top of CBD, this balm stick has traces of warming herbs and spices like ginger root, menthol, and cloves.
While our CBD topicals can provide localized relief, please remember they won’t penetrate your bloodstream. So, if you want to experience CBD’s max healing potential, we recommend stacking the Sport Muscle Recovery Balm with our Mellow Mint Drops. Just two dropperfuls of this potent CBD tincture per day should be enough to provide superior relief from aches.
Please remember: if you want “big gains,” then you’ve got to prioritize bedtime. Your muscles need at least seven hours of sleep to recover while you’re training.
Thankfully, it also appears CBD could help in this department. In fact, we put together our Deep Sleep Capsules that take advantage of CBD’s sedative potential. On top of our hemp-derived CBD, each of these capsules contains traces of melatonin, Valerian root, and chamomile. Keep these pills on your bedside if you’ve suffered one too many sleepless nights.
