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.
How CBD Could Take Your Training To The Next Level
Forget Sweat – Replenish With Our Hydration Booster
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.
To help make hydration easier, we created a tasty lemon-flavored Hydration Drink Mix. Each of these easy-to-use packets contains all of the electrolytes you need to avoid dizziness and fatigue while you’re sweating it out. Just like our Energy Drink Mix, there are no artificial ingredients or unnecessary additives in our hydration formula.

Soothe Those Post-Workout Aches With CBD Topicals
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.
Good Recovery Requires Sound (CBD-Enhanced!) Sleep
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.
Not Feeling Gym Ready? Down Our CBD Energy Mix!
When you’re just getting into a fitness routine, it can be challenging to motivate yourself. The mind is excellent at making excuses, especially in our hectic digital world.
Thankfully, we’ve devised a sneaky way to trick your brain to train: try our Energy Drink Mix! Don’t worry; our CBD-enhanced mix has none of those questionable ingredients you’ll find in most store-bought energy formulas. Instead of unpronounceable additives, our energy formula is powered by green tea catechins, green coffee caffeine, and, of course, CBD — which offers a more consistent energy boost, without the crash!
Be sure to keep a bag of this electrifying mix nearby for those days you feel like slipping off schedule.
