The Benefits of Running with CBD

Running takes dedication and focus. Whether you’re a casual runner, just getting started, or have a few marathons under your belt, we have something that might help. As therapeutic and beneficial as running can be, to can also take a toll on the body. These are the benefits of running with CBD.

The Effects of Running on the Human Body

Running has both positive and negative effects on the human body.

Those who run consistently experience a number of benefits. Studies show that running relieves stress and improves mental health. In addition to its mood-boosting abilities, running is good for your body. Running also helps to improve your cardiovascular health; by lowering blood-pressure, exercising the lungs, and strengthening your legs and core, running has numerous benefits for your health.

Whether you’re a casual runner or run every day, running can also take a toll on the human body. Unfortunately, running can take a toll on your joints; the impact of running often antagonizes ankle, knee, and hip joints, causing inflammation and lack of mobility. If you are new to running, or just starting up your fitness routine again, your muscles will experience an increase in lactic acid build-up, which will cause soreness. In addition, your new running routine will demand that your muscles lengthen, which can lead to strains if you aren’t careful.

Running is a fantastic cardiovascular activity, but it doesn’t come without risks. In order to enjoy the health benefits of running, you must care for your body physically; this is where CBD can help.

The Benefits of Running with CBD

There are many benefits of running with CBD.

Research shows that the endocannabinoid and cardiovascular systems are interlinked. More specifically, one study suggests that CBD reduces stress, has an anti-inflammatory effect, and increases the survival rate of white blood cells throughout the cardiovascular system. Running also causes oxidative stress which, as a patented antioxidant, CBD can help to alleviate. Lastly, to reduce the impact of running on your joints and muscles, CBD reduces the inflammatory response in those areas; this means that you’ll experience less post-run aches and pains.

Lucky for you, it is easy to integrate CBD into your running routine!

Before a morning run, try NANO CBD Shots (specifically the energy shot). This boost of energy in the morning, combined with workout enhancing vitamins, will help you to power through your run and decrease your recovery time.

After your run, as you stretch, Freezing Point is an excelling anti-inflammatory CBD option. Apply to sore muscles and inflamed joints for cool long-lasting relief.

Sometimes it isn’t until hours after a run that soreness sets in. CBD Asteroid Gummies provide full-body relief, boosting your immune and cardiovascular systems well decreasing the build-up of post-work lactic acid.

Time to Run!

The benefits of running with CBD are endless. From reducing recovery time to protecting your joints, CBD is an amazing running companion. With CBD in hand, you’ll always feel ready to hit the pavement. Running has so many amazing mental and physical benefits – why not enjoy it even more with CBD?
