When you want to keep fit and healthy but have a new (or old) area of discomfort, it can be frustrating getting over that initial hump of muscle soreness and get properly warmed up for your workout.
After all, you just want to feel good when you hit the pavement for that walk or run, do a few extra vinyasas in your yoga class, or even add some extra weights when you lift at the gym.
Nature’s Athletic Edge
You might have heard about the benefits of CBD for temporary, occasional discomfort, but did you know it’s a powerful ally in stimulating and rejuvenating your muscles before workouts?
Because CBD products directly target exercise-induced inflammation and soreness, they naturally reduce discomfort and help you to get the best out of your workouts.
Here’s the nitty-gritty of how CBD works:
1. Warm Up Muscles
When paired with essential oils and cooling menthol CBD helps to release tension and promote a calming sensation in the body Because it warms up muscles, after 5-10 minutes you can then properly stretch before your workout or warm up (and loosen up) faster during that initial jogging phase of your run.
2. Relaxes Muscles & Releases Tension
When our bodies are working out, temporary, occasional discomfort is a natural response, but because CBD has a calming, hydrating effect it stimulates your body to target that discomfort. Plus, the addition of essential oils into the mix means your muscles simply can’t resist!
3. Feel Refreshed
If you’re consistently working on increasing stamina or raising weights at the gym, rowdy muscles soreness and recovery time won’t slow you (and your goals) down. Instead, you can exercise without that familiar feeling of temporary, occasional discomfort digging in and feel refreshed and revived instead.
So while it’s quite common to wait until after-the-fact to seek solutions to discomfort, give your body a helping hand to reduce temporary, occasional discomfort and get more out of your physical activity—before your workout, not just after!
