CBD and Yoga!
CBD has rapidly gained traction – chiefly for its potential therapeutic benefits.
Although CBD’s popularity spans only a few years, the compound enjoys overwhelming attention medically – and, of course, legally.
Impressively, manufacturers like Jane’s Emporium have found several interesting ways users can benefit from CBD doses – from CBD tinctures to CBD sports cream, soft gels, and –name it.
Among several discoveries, experts have found CBD and Yoga as an interesting pair. How So?
Before you discover how combining CBD and Yoga may help attain better results at your yoga sessions and the resultant all-around health benefits, first things first…
What is CBD?
CBD is a natural compound extracted from the cannabis species – both marijuana and hemp. Although all the over 130 compounds in cannabis, called cannabinoids, offer their unique properties, CBD and THC are most celebrated.
Whereas CBD and THC have similar therapeutic effects, THC’s psychoactive effect scares potential users. For clarity, THC causes the ‘high’ marijuana users experience.
In fact, cannabis’s widespread, controversial status is primarily based on THC. Across many jurisdictions, cannabis’ legality [or illegality] is determined by THC levels.
In the US, for instance, while hemp plants with under .3 percent THC concentration is considered legal, products with higher concentrations are regarded as ‘marijuana’ and, hence, remain illegal under federal law. However, hemp and all its properties, CBD inclusive, remains illegal across a few states.
Now, back to CBD and Yoga…
Benefits of CBD and Yoga
CBD and Yoga overlap in different ways, making them a perfect pair. Let’s quickly discuss eight ways CBD can benefit yogis –both pros and newbies alike.
- CBD and Yoga helps boost self-awareness
The brain controls multiple body functions, working all day, even when the body sleeps. Handling too many cognitive functions –memories, thoughts, etc. – can weigh on the brain. Such brain stress often causes low concentration during yoga sessions.
Although Yoga itself calms the mind and helps you focus on the here and now, CBD before your sessions promise a solution to the effects of the brain’s overactivity. CBD binds with the endocannabinoid system to increase mindfulness and help your mind connect to [and focus on] your muscles. This improves your yoga sessions and offers higher results.
CBD and Yoga relieves anxiety
Starting your yoga sessions, particularly among newbies, can be somewhat daunting. While you’ll feel more at ease as you settle into your session, the initial stage can be tricky and stressful.
Here, our Broad Spectrum CBD tincture formula may help handle post-traumatic stress disorder and related issues. This makes CBD a thoughtful recommendation for more convenient and stress-free yoga sessions.
CBD and Yoga Supports Digestion
For best effect, many yoga enthusiasts change their long-held food habits, in most cases, for a vegan diet.
Such a sudden switch can affect your digestive system adversely. Gladly, CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties that may help manage digestive concerns.
Remember the general rule to avoid overeating and staying light at Yoga? CBD can help you achieve this and, in turn, boost your yoga session.
CBD and Yoga Improves Sleep
Any activity that demands energy and stamina also requires good diets and quality sleep.
After a long yoga session, people experience poor sleep, which may affect you in diverse ways. Among the adverse effects, poor sleep can dampen the brain’s functionality and reduce muscle recovery speed.
When sleeplessness continues without intervention, it may aggravate severe stress concerns and impair cardio functions. For this, good long night sleep is recommended, particularly for yogis.
CBD is considered a safe and effective sleep enhancer. Besides, the all-natural compound help sustains – or restore – sleep cycles.
Well, there’s no more fun and tasty way to drift than with these delicious CBD-infused gummies.
CBD and Yoga Sustain Poses
Yoga entails sustaining one posture after another, as you proceed with your exercises, maintaining certain postures may become difficult. It demands high-level flexibility. Besides, it can leave you sore. Here, again, CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties come in handy.
CBD topical solution like Jane’s Emporium CBD Sports Cream may offer quick relief when applied to affected spots. Unlike conventional pain killers, which leave adverse effects and a likely drug dependency, CBD is safe and non-addictive.
CBD and Yoga offers Stress relief
When stressed, the body secretes a hormone called cortisol. High levels of this hormone in the body cause anxiety and stress. However, cortisol levels can be reduced.
Research shows Yoga is one way to cut down on cortisol production and reduce fatigue, stress, depression, and anxiety.
Yoga, backed with CBD’s anti-depressant and anti-stress properties, will help keep cortisol levels in good check. Combining CBD and Yoga gives an extensive reach to all parts of the body.
CBD and Yoga Improves life quality
A trial on healthy seniors shows Yoga helps improve overall life quality. Seniors who engage in hatha yoga class or walking exercise recorded high points in energy and general well-being.
Similarly, CBD may offer all-round health for those with severe medical conditions. This makes the CBD-yoga blend a thoughtful one.
CBD and Yoga Reduce Nausea
Some medications and health conditions can cause adverse reactions like loss of appetite and nausea. A study on breast cancer patients shows that an integrated yoga scheme into their chemotherapy helped them handle nausea.
Interestingly, CBD can add more. CBD may help manage nauseous tendencies in cancer patients under chemotherapy.
Is CBD safe?
Yes – safe and widely tolerated. To date, there are no scientifically proven side effects of CBD. However, a hand full of users have reported mild reactions, including:
- Dry mouth
- Change in appetite
Possibly, the reactions may be linked to a heavy dosage.
However, you may experience worse and even deadly effects after dosing toxin-laden products with “Quality CBD” print.
Indeed, the CBD market is currently packed with loads of fakes. Funnily, some of the so-called CBD products contain everything but CBD. Besides offering nothing near CBD’s therapeutic effects, their chemical profile may cause severe bodily damage.
While there are quality products among the fakes, navigating the confusing loads of alternatives on the market can be intimidating.
