The weather is warming up, and we’re all getting our summer bodies ready for fun in the sun. But it’s been a little challenging for some of us to get back into the swing of things — fitness, to be more specific. Most of us sat still for a year in the house, trying our best to remain active, but the pandemic made it hard.
Nonetheless, we’re on our way to normalcy. You’re ready to hit the ground running — but there’s one problem, your body might not be in agreement with your new fitness routine. If your body is sore and you’re finding it hard to keep going, we’ve got five CBD products to make the transition a little smoother.
1. Muscle & Joint Cream: Cooling Formula
Do you know that prickly, burning sensation you get when you run or work out? That’s lactic acid building up in your muscles, and it can be pretty uncomfortable to work through and deal with after your workout.
This is where our Muscle and Joint Cream comes into play. This formulation contains a slew of beneficial ingredients, like white willow bark, caffeine, and menthol. The menthol provides an instant warming and cooling sensation that counteracts the feeling of lactic acid building up in the muscles.
But it doesn’t stop there. White willow bark is a natural anti-inflammatory containing salicin — the same compound found in aspirin. When you combine these powerful natural ingredients with CO2 extracted CBD, the end result is a post-workout product that allows you to work out without all the unnecessary discomfort afterward.
2. Muscle & Joint Balm Stick
If you don’t like putting a cream-based product in your hands to apply, you can get the same level of relief with a Muscle and Joint Balm Stick. Similar to its predecessor above, this Balm Stick still has some distinct differences. It contains camphor oil to loosen sore, tense muscles, and it has peppermint and wintergreen oils to provide that warm, soothing sensation we mentioned earlier.
Since this formulation simplifies the application, allowing you to pull your Balm Stick out and rub it on as needed, without having to get your hands all messy. Plus, it contains a skin-nourishing blend of natural butters and oils to keep skin nourished.
3. CBD Bath Bombs
If you want to double up on post-workout wellness, then why not have a good soak with one of our CBD-infused Bath Bombs when you get home? And if relaxation is your primary focus, then you’ll want to try our Soothing Bath Bomb, since it contains lavender essential oil and Hawaiian black salt.
On the other hand, if you want to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of our bath bombs without being too relaxed afterward, then you’ll want to take a dip with our Recharge Bath Bomb. The combination of peppermint, wintergreen, and spearmint essential oils uplifts the senses, while natural arnica oils join forces with the cannabinoids to provide the relief you’re looking for after an intense workout.
Our bath bombs contain 200mg of CBD isolate, making bathtime your new favorite time of the day. Many people don’t know baths enhance wellness in a special kind of way. They provide a quiet moment for relaxation and self-reflection, but they also benefit your muscles and joints and improve sleep quality.
We don’t know about you, but we’re thinking a bath sounds pretty good right about now!
4. CBD Foot Cream
If you think about it, where would you be without your feet? When you’re working out, your feet are working double-time to keep you moving towards your fitness goals. If your feet suffer the most during or after your workout, then you deserve a relaxing foot rub after it’s all said and done.
Never underestimate the power of a good foot rub, especially when you’ve got 500mg of high-quality cannabinoids working their way through the many layers of your skin to provide the heavenly feel CBD is famous for. Plus, this CBD Foot Cream contains lavender to soothe tired, achy feet. Lavender also provides some pretty impressive detoxifying properties.
This foot cream also softens stubborn dry patches of skin on the feet with natural shea butter and sunflower oil. Who doesn’t want baby soft feet?!
5. CBD Recovery Set
If you want well-rounded CBD wellness benefits, you have to add our CBD Recovery Set to your regime. Some days, different workouts call for different products. Some products work better for targeted relief; then there are some days you need a product that offers full-body therapeutic vibes. Our CBD Recovery Set gives you a little bit of everything you’ll need after a variety of workouts — Muscle and Joint Cream, CBD Soft Gel Capsules, and a crowd favorite, our Recharge Bath Bomb.
It’s essential to have a variety of CBD products, since different product categories have different bioavailability levels. CBD topicals are great, because they go right to the source of the problem. CBD edibles take a little longer to kick in, since they have to travel through the digestive system — but they provide a longer-lasting sense of relief once they take effect.
If this combination of products isn’t quite what your fitness routine calls for, you can create your own! Some people like pairing their favorite CBD topical with CBD gummies, and some people like to have a personal treasure trove — grabbing whatever the day calls for.
Final Thoughts on Working Out With CBD
There are plenty of reasons to add CBD to your pre- or post-workout routine, but getting the relief you’re looking for, after a grueling workout, tops the list for most. Getting back on track with your fitness goals can be a challenge, but having CBD on hand makes it a little easier.
Most people find they can incorporate CBD into more than their workout routine, since it enhances health and wellness in various ways. So, if you think it’s time to hit the gym, make things easier for yourself. Throw one of these in your bag and work out with ease.
