Keep Your Resolutions This Year
With everyone planning on bettering themselves this time of year, we wanted to take this as an opportunity to educate.
Whether you're looking to become healthier by exercising more, eating better, or just being happier, CBD can be your right-hand man for all of it.
Diet & The Endocannabinoid System
"Cannabis has been a friend to humankind since before the written word, providing fiber for cordage and cloth, seeds for nutrition, and roots, leaves and flowers for ritual and healing. During the Neolithic period, our ancestors discovered uses for every part of cannabis, which was one of the first agricultural crops, perhaps the first, ever to be grown and harvested some 12,000 years ago."
Can CBD Help Your Workout Results?
"Any workout, especially a rigorous one, causes microscopic damage to the body's muscles and tissues, explains Dr. Alan Beyer, sports medicine doctor and executive medical director of the Hoag Orthopedic Institute in California.
It's this inflammation that triggers the body's repair processes, allowing tissues to grow back stronger and fitter. However, too much inflammation left unchecked can contribute to excessive muscle damage and poor workout results.
Studies show that CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound. Thorsten Rudroff, an exercise scientist and director of the Integrative Neurophysiology Laboratory at Colorado State University, explains that he has seen a dramatic increase in the number of older adults and collegiate and professional athletes consuming CBD edibles and oils. By taking them immediately after exercise, they aim to recover quickly and effectively. Some believe that CBD reduces the body's tendency to break down tissues and promotes muscle growth."
We know how hard it can be to stick to our resolutions, but luckily, with CBD, it might just make it a little easier.
