God Save the Queen and Her Stash of CBD
by Kat Helgeson
According to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS), adults should indulge a weekly minimum of 150 minutes worth of aerobic activity in order to maintain a healthy weight. Although this is good advice, anyone who is aware of the phrase “no pain, no gain” will understand just how debilitating post-workout muscle strains, pains, and aches can be.
Every single day, over 10,000 Americans will find themselves inside a hospital, emergency care facility or doctor’s office with a workout-related injury. Even for those who are lucky enough not to wind up in a hospital, muscle strains and tension can make exercise unbearable.
Discomfort and injuries arise once the body responds to the intensity of a workout. Physiological processes, such as cardiovascular performance and motor functions, may fall out of balance unless the body is indulged with or is producing an adequate amount of cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids are the cannabis plant’s naturally-occurring chemicals and there are hundreds of them. For this post, we will take a look at a cannabinoid that is on track to earn the industry $12 billion in annual sales for the U.S. cannabis industry by 2024.
CBD, or ‘cannabidiol’ as scientists would call it, is a primary constituent of hemp and cannabis. It is not an intoxicating chemical and therefore will not leave you feeling ‘stoned’, ‘baked’ or ‘high’. Instead, it will deliver your body a dose of therapeutic goodness, devoid of any overly sedating or intoxicating effects.
Some of the NFL‘s most notable players such as Eugene Monroe, Nate Jackson, and Joe McMahonare are proud users of CBD. Join them, why don’t you? In doing so, you can reap the ongoing health benefits of CBD, which include – but are not limited to – relaxation, pain relief, anti-inflammation, improved sleep, faster healing, and nausea and spasm relief.
You can start benefiting from the therapeutic properties of CBD when you buy broad-spectrum solutions and pesticide-free oils online. There are plenty of reasons to introduce this non-intoxicating cannabinoid into your everyday life.
To get you inspired, we’ve made a list of 10 ways in which you can use CBD to enhance a workout routine:
The standard of technology used to test an individual for suspected cannabis consumption poses a challenge for consumers and law enforcement officials alike. Urinalysis testing – which involves urinating into a container and having the liquid tested for cannabinoids – is a tried-and-tested way of determining whether or not someone has cannabinoids in their system.
However, there are more than 100 different cannabinoids contained in the cannabis plant. Since some (like CBD) are non-intoxicating, testing for all of them is not exactly fair. Although extremely rare, some users could potentially fail a drug test if they use a full-spectrum oil that contains traces of THC.
To reduce the chances of a drug test producing a false positive, request a hair follicle test or blood test. You may also want to steer clear of full-spectrum oils and instead, choose a THC-free oil such as a broad-spectrum solution.
