3 Things we Love about CBD for the Active

3 Things we Love about CBD for the Active

If you know very little about GetEVOKE, the most important thing to get clear from the start is that our premium CBD products are 100% designed to support and enhance your active lifestyle. 

This means, we’ve got products to help you push your body further – to run for longer, to cycle harder, to stretch deeper – and we’ve got solutions to help you stay active with the grandkids on the weekend, to ease niggling complaints, or to find moments of calm and focus when your crazy, busy life just gets a little too much.

And we’re not the only ones who believe in the benefits of CBD. In a revealing study, jointly managed by the Brightfield Group, an independent marketing research firm, and HelloMD, 42% of CBD users have left their traditional medications behind and now rely solely on hemp-based solutions to treat their conditions, which include anxiety (67%), insomnia (60%), joint pain and inflammation (52%) and depression (43%). 

That’s right! Joint pain and inflammation! Interesting stuff for the active lifestyle community, right?

But if we had to select just three things that we love about CBD and why we think it’s such a great alternative for the active, we’d highlight the following…

  • CBD is a natural, plant-based ingredient. It comes from plants that are grown in our soils.
  • Our bodies are designed to connect with CBD and reap its benefits. We connect via the human endocannabinoid system.
  • CBD products are fun and innovative. They can be consumed in a variety of ways, making them accessible to all.

Let’s go into a little more detail…

 

1. CBD is natural, plant-based and is grown in our soils

If you’re a physically active person, then we know that you like to take care of your body. So, would you rather consume a product made from our planet’s natural resources, or a synthetically produced drug that’s been clinically manufactured by a big pharma corporation? Errrrr, a no-brainer, right? At GetEVOKE, we love the fact the oil used to craft CBD products comes from a plant. 

Of course…

Not all hemp is equal, not all hemp is grown using the same farming techniques and, as such, not all CBD products are the same. But, there’s no getting away from the fact that CBD is a natural, plant-based solution. End of story! 

So, if you like taking the natural approach to fitness and to your overall well being, then CBD could be of interest to you.

 

2. Our bodies are built to connect with CBD via the human endocannabinoid system

First up, what is the endocannabinoid system, or the ECS, for short? Put simply, the ECS is a complex cell-signaling system inside the human body that was identified in the early 1990s. And why should you care about it? Because it’s 100% designed to connect with the many types of cannabinoids found in plants, including our friend CBD.

This means that the human body is filled with internal cell receptors that are ready and waiting to connect with cannabinoids, which means that our bodies were made to interact with CBD. So, if you haven’t yet tried CBD, it might be time to get the ball rolling. Your body was, quite literally, made to receive CBD’s benefits. 

While experts are still trying to fully understand the ECS, we do know that it plays a significant role in regulating a range of human functions and processes, including sleep, mood, and appetite… all of which are no doubt of interest to those who lead an active lifestyle and love staying fit and healthy.

 

3. CBD can be swallowed, massaged into you skin, thrown into your bath and more

You can drop a CBD oil under your tongue, mix a small amount into your favorite smoothie, treat sore muscles and joints with roll-ons and salves, relax in a steaming hot tub of CBD-infused skin therapy, chew on a fruity gummy, swallow a softgel on-the-go, and the list goes on and on.

CBD manufacturers are becoming more innovative by the day and the CBD consumer is happy to give a new product format a try. And why shouldn’t we have a product that’s as fun to take as it is effective? 

Move over boring big pharma. CBD’s getting creative and edging its way over into the fast lane 🙂 

Soooo…. Feeling inspired? Feeling interested? Feeling like you wanna knock back a CBD tincture and head out for a midnight run? We hope so!
