Which CBD Products are Best for Pre and Post Workouts?

January 12, 2017

When it comes to keeping our bodies as healthy as possible, there is nothing like a regular exercise regimen.  Working out regularly has been proven to do the following:

  • Elevate the mood.
  • Improve stress levels.
  • Maintain hormonal balance.
  • Improve the cardiovascular system.
  • Increase blood flow throughout the body.
  • Decrease the risk of diabetes.
  • Regulate a person’s weight.
  • …the list goes on.

While many people are aware of the importance of exercise, not all of us actually prioritize fitness in our day-to-day lives.  And, it’s hard to blame anyone, because many of us struggle with overwhelmingly busy schedules, stress, and fatigue that can get in the way of craving a workout session.

That is why cannabidiol (CBD) might become the perfect addition to your workout routine.  Not only can hemp be useful before you hit the gym, but it may be a gamechanger for your post-workout recovery as well.

Before Working Out: Energy, Motivation, and Mood

Most of us have been there – we know that we really should exercise, but we just can’t seem to get ourselves to find the motivation in order to do so.  Either we are feeling tired, stressed out, or flat out lazy. 

If you’re looking for something that will get you into the right mindset to exercise, try giving CBD a shot thanks to these studies.

Study #1: Cannabidiol seems to play a role in managing energy homeostasis, which can help in combating fatigue and a lack of motivation.  Energy homeostasis is the body’s means for regulating energy levels throughout the day, so that they peak in the earlier hours and fall at night when we’re ready for bed.

Study #2: We know that cannabidiol offers anti-inflammatory properties which can really help if what’s holding you back from a fitness regimen is aches and pains that you’ve been accumulating.

After Working Out: Recovery, Pain Relief, Sleep

A lot of people underestimate the importance of recovery after working out.  Exercising takes a lot of energy, and any activity that builds the muscles requires downtime so that the tissue can properly heal and strengthen.  There are a couple of primary studies that also suggest using CBD for this purpose.

Study #1: With its noted anti-inflammatory properties, cannabidiol may help aid in the recovery process by reducing inflammation throughout the body so that it can thoroughly heal from physical exertion.  This can also help with sore muscles following strength training.

Study #2: Cannabidiol may help promote more regular sleep, which can really be useful to fitness enthusiasts, as most of the body’s inner repair work takes place during sleeping hours.  This also restores our energy levels so we can exercise again the next day.
