Understanding CBD

CBD and THC are just two of the many substances found in cannabis plants that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a cell signaling network throughout the whole body. It aids in regulating certain functions like your appetite. The cellular receptors that make up the ECS react to substances called cannabinoids, which synthesize in the body (endocannabinoid).

How does CBD work with Fitness? 

Think of CBD as part of your fitness regimen or supplements that you take to help to further aid your body.  Using CBD in terms of potential pain relief, better sleep and faster recovery are just a few of the reasons why professional athletes and many others use CBD alongside their fitness goals!

Sleep is one of the greatest recovery tools that you have. When your body is well-rested so are your muscles. Making sure you get a good night’s sleep is KEY and CBD may help with that. Another bonus of a good night’s rest is when you are well-rested, you tend to make healthier decisions about food throughout your day!

Another way that CBD works with fitness is with potential pain relief. When you’re lifting weights, you’re going to strain muscles and joints. Pain is unavoidable, but you don’t have to let it interfere with your training.

Topical pain relief formulas like our CBD Balm is a great choice for people who are prone to joint pain.  One way that CBD potentially can benefit recovery from an intense workout is with inflammation. CBD may target that inflammation and help signal to your body for it to go down.
