Summer is here and the games have begun. Many of us want to take advantage of the beautiful weather to get/keep our bodies in good shape. Moving your body on a daily basis is one of the pillars of good health just like eating and sleeping well. Whether you enjoy walking, running, cycling, swimming, or outdoor yoga — your body may get a bit achy after.
Enter CBD and the many ways to help with recovery, muscle aches, strains, and overuse. CBD and Delta 8 THC, which are sourced from hemp, may be very effective in reducing systemic inflammation and calming down those areas that are causing you discomfort.
Some people like to take a gummy or dose with a CBD or CBG tincture to help them recover after a workout. Within a relatively short period of time, those cannabinoids are going to get into your bloodstream and help your muscles relax by bringing down the inflammation that underlies any kind of pain.
Topicals are also amazing at melting into your body in the targeted area which allows that CBD to give you relief fairly quickly. For example, if after walking, your calves are aching then you can spread the topical all over your lower leg and within approximately ten minutes you will feel so much better. You may also use a topical more than once a day if you’ve got pain that is breaking through.
All kinds of professional athletes are using CBD to enhance their performance and to feel better when they’re training. Instead of NSAIDs and pain medications that upset your stomach and are highly addictive — why not consider integrating CBD into your workout routine and be on the road to feeling your best.
