If you follow fitness influencers on social media, you may have heard some buzz around CBD for fitness routines. Many CBD advocates believe that this hemp-derived compound can help lower your stress levels and improve muscle healing, as well as offer a number of other benefits that directly support fitness and wellness routines.
In fact, a number of celebrities, including Jennifer Aniston, have publically celebrated the regular inclusion of CBD in their fitness and wellness routines, particularly as a complement to the standard post-workout.
CBD for Fitness Innovation
Whether you’re about to launch into a new exercise routine, or you’re a hard-seasoned keep-fit-fanatic, your muscles need tender loving care. At the beginning of 2020, the CBD industry is one of the most innovative industries to date.
CBD product formulation over the past few years has been a super hot topic and we’ve seen, nationwide, the launch of CBD products across a wide range of existing industries. The world of fitness and wellness is no exception.
Muscle solutions for quick application, CBD soft gels for easy ingestion, CBD-infused freeze gels to help calm the body after intensive experiences, tinctures to help get you into the fitness mood, CBD roll-ons for a hands-free post-workout routine, and CBD sprays that feel cooling to the touch. The list goes on and will no doubt continue to expand and surprise us as 2020 kicks into gear.
The creation of specialist products like soft gels, roll-ons, pocket-sized balms, and high-intensity sprays, have made it easy, fun, and trendy to include CBD products in all kinds of fitness routines. Even when we have little time to concentrate on post-workout recovery.
Twist, open, select, and swallow. That’s all that’s needed to ingest a CBD soft gel as you’re walking out of the gym, or out of the yoga studio, and traveling onward to work.
CBD products are available in a range of sizes, making it easy to choose a small 30mg topical to throw into your gym bag or even your work bag for use at a later, more convenient time of day. The size and ease of use of CBD products is what makes them particularly discrete; another reason for their booming popularity countrywide.
Smoke Your Way Down
If you happen to enjoy a relaxing smoke after a heavy workout, you might want to try swapping out your usual smoke for a premium, CBD-rich pre-roll. More or more strains are coming onto the market and for many people, even the fittest among us, there’s nothing like a smoke to help bring things down and get focused for the next part of the day.
Naturally, CBD hemp flower is also available in loose form and is normally sold in eighths or one gram bags, so if you like to roll your own, the option with CBD is there for the taking. It’s also a good idea to stick with indica-dominant strains when it comes to post-workout purposes.
Indica strains tend to work best for recovery purposes, owing to their special blend of terpenes and cannabinoids. They’re the group of strains that most help to bring the body back down into a calming state of relaxation and unwind.
A Relaxing CBD Routine
CBD bathbombs are perhaps one of the most relaxing ways to bring your wellness or fitness routine to a careful and natural end. Sore muscles, tired limbs, a racing heart, and an even faster-racing brain, can all benefit from slipping into a CBD-infused bathsoak.
The fun element of a CBD bathbomb is being able to choose from a range of aromas.
The CBD industry has become just as creative as the regular beauty industry when it comes to bath bomb magic, offering scents that go from creamy vanillas and chocolate limes, to zesty lemons and floral explosions.
While a CBD bath bomb might not offer the kind of quick, easy, on-the-go post-workout solution that you can get from products like soft gels and roll-ons, it definitely provides one of the most indulgent. If you workout in the evenings and you need a soothing way to bring your body and mind back down into relax-mode in preparation for a good night’s sleep, the CBD bath bomb may well be the useful and effective remedy you’ve been searching for.
CBD and the Basics
Remember that products made from hemp-derived CBD contain 0,3% or less of the psychoactive cannabinoid called tetrahydrocannabinol, or better known as THC, which means that they don’t get you high. This remains the case even when you choose to smoke CBD in the form of CBD-rich hemp flower.
It’s for this reason that the decision to incorporate CBD into our wellness and fitness routines is becoming more and more popular. We’ve no doubt that the trend will continue as we surge forward into 2020. For more information about the use of CBD for post-recovery purposes, feel free to contact the Get Evoke team directly.
