In our opinion, CBD + Yoga = Match Made in Heaven
If you ask us, this is by far, the easiest equation we’ve ever had to remember.
So now, let’s dive a little deeper and break down this equation (we promise to keep the break down as simple as the equation appears).
*Important: If you have a medical condition or take pharmaceutical drugs, please consult with your physician before using CBD products.
But before talking about anything else, let’s dive into how yoga can be a form of self-care. We’re really big on self-care over here (in case we didn’t make that clear enough before).
Question: How is yoga a form of self-care?
Our answer: The World Health Organization defines self-care as “the ability of individuals, families, and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider”.
With that being said, we think practicing yoga can allow you to connect deeper with your mind, body and soul due to the fact that the practice is focused on not only physical and meditative elements but mental and emotional elements as well. Also, practicing yoga can hold many benefits.
Some benefits are
- improved balance, flexibility, strength,
- managed stress and pain throughout the body,
- aid in sleep, and so much more.
What a coincidence… because similarly, there are also many potential benefits to administering CBD such as
- managing stress and anxiety,
- reducing pain and inflammation,
- aiding in sleep, and so many others.
Hmm… these two have quite some things in common, don’t they?
Now that we were able to point out some of the benefits of both, let’s explain how administering CBD before and after yoga can potentially enhance your overall yoga experience.
Administering CBD (either topically or orally) before the yoga session may potentially alleviate any physical tension or stiffness that has been built up in the muscles. It may also loosen you up and clear your mind before the session begins. During the yoga session, the effects of the CBD may kick in and work their magic. You might notice that you have a deeper connection with your mind, body, and soul and are fully engaged in the session because you are in a more calm and relaxed state. Administering CBD (either topically or orally) after the yoga session may potentially have you maintaining your calm, relaxed, and less tense state after all that breath and strength work.
Bottom line, we think the incorporation of CBD with yoga is a match made in heaven.
