The benefits of adding CBD to your workout
Working out is an important part of your wellness regime, especially if your job involves a lot of sitting or low impact activities. Unfortunately, the sudden shift from low to high gear can take its toll on your body.
The neurotransmitters and receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your body are responsible for keeping it balanced. Athletes and very active people place more stress on the body than normal, so their bodies can become out of balance. Sometimes your ECS needs a little boost and that's where CBD comes in.
What CBD can do in your workout
Are you familiar with post-workout discomfort and the occasional injury? When working out, exercise can affect motor and cardiovascular performance due to an imbalance in your ECS.
CBD can help combat this imbalance in the following ways:
- Works as a pain-killer and muscle relaxant.
- Promotes joint health.
- Supports sleep.
- Controls stress and anxiety.
- Reduces inflammation.
As you can see, it's a versatile product. The main issue is that sprays, oils and tinctures can be awkward or messy to take, which is not ideal for people on the go. That's why we provide great-tasting chewable CBD, for the no-mess, no-fuss alternative to traditional methods of intake.
Pre- or post-workout: the choice is yours
Whether you choose to use it pre- or post-workout, you'll likely benefit from a faster recovery afterwards. And that's in addition to decreasing excessive inflammation, and lowering muscle tension. The overall effect is that you may find it reduces the need to use other medication with far worse side effects than CBD.
As with all medication, we recommend you start small and work up if you need it. That's easy with the precise dosage in each tablet. The full flavour orally disintegrates as you chew, releasing the active ingredient.
