The Best CBD Products for Cyclists and How to Use Them
At GetEvoke, we specialize in the formulation of CBD products to enhance all types of active lifestyles. This includes super busy moms who are always on the go to high-performance athletes looking for ways to push their bodies just that little bit further.
Over the past year, our products have become particularly popular with cyclists, mainly because they’re easy to use and designed to improve performance in the saddle. In this super informative blog, we outline exactly how the avid cyclist can get the most out of our premium CBD product range by taking a look at each product in turn. Let’s get started…
Find your Focus with our LEVEL500 CBD Tincture
When traveling at high speeds, when competing in races, when needing to have complete focus on the saddle to move and swerve with the winding track of the road ahead, a quick 1ml shot of our LEVEL500 CBD tincture is just what the avid cyclist needs.
Our recommendation is to place just one dropper of our mint-flavored, full spectrum CBD oil under your tongue, 20 minutes before you head out on your ride, so that the positive effects of CBD kick into gear and accompany you from the start.
Each bottle of LEVEL500 contains 30ml of CBD oil, which means cyclists have enough to last them for an entire month, even when riding every day. It’s a good idea to monitor how your body responds to the use of CBD pre-ride over a one-month period and to up or reduce the dose accordingly so that you eventually find your cycling sweet spot. You can find more information on CBD dosage and potency here.
Speed-Up Muscle Recovery with our LEVEL1000 CBD Tincture
Any avid cyclist will know that it can sometimes take a while for muscles to fully recover after a particularly heavy ride. But if you love to cycle hard every day, you need to find a natural solution that can help speed up muscle recovery and get you back in the saddle, at the top of your game, in record time. This is where our LEVEL1000 CBD tincture comes into play.
Our LEVEL1000 CBD oil is a lemon-flavored tincture that has been specially formulated to speed up muscle recovery post-exercise and cyclists can enjoy the oil in two ways. The simplest way is to drop a 1ml dropper of the oil under your tongue post-cycle, but a more creative approach to your post-cycle muscle-recovery program is to mix 1ml of our CBD oil into one of our post-exercise CBD juices.
CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it’s so effective at helping cyclists renew and recover muscle tissue after each and every ride. The quicker you recover, the quicker you can get back on your cycle, and this is one of the reasons why our LEVEL1000 is proving so popular with the professional and semi-professional cycling community.
Benefit from Restorative Sleep with our LEVEL1500 CBD Tincture
When you cycle hard, or when you cycle for long periods of time, your body always needs to rest. The problem is that after a really intensive ride, it can sometimes be difficult to get your brain to switch off. A tired body doesn’t immediately guarantee a good night’s sleep. You need to quiet your mind, so that when you eventually drop off you experience the right kind of restorative sleep needed.
Our LEVEL1500 CBD tincture is a special night-time tincture. It’s particularly potent nature makes it the right kind of tincture to induce quality sleep. Even if you get the recommended eight hours of sleep every night, it doesn’t mean that you’re getting the right kind of sleep, and this is where our LEVEL1500 can really help.
A 1ml dropper of LEVEL1500 CBD oil, 20 minutes before bed, helps prepare the mind to pass through the four stages of quality sleep and to spend enough time in each of the stages. If you think you sleep well, but your body is finding it difficult to perform to its best in the saddle the following day, then you might be one of those cyclists suffering from a lack of quality sleep.

Soothe Sore Muscles with RESOLVE, our warming botanical CBD salve
What do lots of cyclists suffer from on a regular basis? Sore muscles. What’s one of the best natural solutions for dealing with muscle soreness? CBD. Particularly when it’s a CBD product, like our warming botanical CBD salve, infused with high levels of cayenne pepper.
The naturally warming character of cayenne pepper, combined with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, makes our RESOLVE salve an effective product for all cyclists, whether cycling professionally or just for fun. Post-cycle, we recommend massaging our CBD salve into large muscle groups – back, legs, glutes – to improve circulation, encourage the reduction of toxins in the body that cause soreness, and to combat muscle inflammation.
The great thing about our CBD salve is that it’s a topical, so if you don’t like the taste of CBD oil, you can get all of the goodness without having to consume orally. What’s more, as a topical, cyclists can better target specific areas of the body after each ride. It’s something that cyclists have told us they love!
Cool Painful Joints with RELIEVE, our CBD-infused freeze gel roll-on
When you cycle for long periods of time, or when you’ve been cycling on a regular basis for a lifetime, most joints in the body are put under a great deal of pressure, particularly wrists, ankles, and knees. And when you’re in the middle of an awesome ride and your niggling joint pain starts playing up, it can ruin the entire experience or even force you to bring your ride to an abrupt end.
So, we created a CBD-infused topical called RELIEVE. It’s a roll-on freeze gel, designed to be applied to small areas, like joints, to give instant pain relief. It taps into the naturally-cooling character of menthol, combined with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, to keep painful joints at bay.
What most cyclists love about RELIEVE is that it’s packaged as a neat roll-on. You unscrew the cap, roll the product onto the niggling area, and replace the cap. No gel on your hands, no fuss. Simple, neat, easy-to-use, and so effective. Again, if you don’t like the taste of CBD oil, this topical is the perfect way to reap the body benefits of CBD without having to ingest.
Enjoy a Post-Cycle Full-Body Relax with our REVIVE bath bombs
So, what about a CBD solution designed to bring about an all-body relax? Yep! We have that too. Our CBD-infused bath bombs, aptly named REVIVE, are available in five awesome aromas.
At the end of the day, or after a particularly draining ride, cyclists can benefit from the rejuvenating benefits of CBD by dropping one of our bath bombs into a relaxing hot bath. Soak for as long as you like and let your skin, the largest organ in the human body, absorb all the rich CBD goodness, washing the stress out of our body at the same time.
The super cool aspect of our CBD bath bombs is that when you get out of the bath, you’ll notice that there’s a film of CBD oil on the surface of the bathwater. Just rub that oily film into your skin and give your epidermis a real CBD treat. Our CBD bath bombs make great gifts for avid cyclists too. Just saying 🙂
Pay Attention to Long-Lasting Body Wellness with our RECOVER broad spectrum CBD softgels
On a final note, we turn our attention to our broad spectrum CBD softgels. We call them RECOVER, because it’s exactly what they help your body to do. Our CBD softgels are all about long-term, long-lasting body recovery, which is just the kind of CBD treatment people who cycle regularly most benefit from.
When you enjoy physical activity, and you want to be able to commit to high-intensity physical activity over a long period of time, you need a natural product to support you in your goals.
The broad spectrum CBD oil that’s packed into each of our softgels offers a slow-releasing CBD solution, keeping you feeling great for between 8 to 10 hours at a time. Our recommendation is to take one softgel per day – which means that one pot will last you an entire month – and to take the softgel at the same time every day.
Think of it as another vital supplement that just contributes to your overall wellbeing in the same way that other vitamins and minerals do. Stay balanced so that you can stay on the saddle for years and years to come. The CBD softgel is your key to long-term wellness.
