Using CBD to Support Your New Year Health Kick

Woman exercising with CBD to kickstart healthWith excessive amounts of food devoured during the Christmas season, one too many drinks consumed, and an underwhelming desire to do adhere to any fitness regime, you may well be thinking to yourself that you’re in need of some kind of boost. Let’s look at how you can incorporate the popular cannabis extract CBD into your life on a daily basis to support your health kick this New Year.


CBD & Exercise

Using CBD to complement your exercise programme may not be the first thought you had when you contemplated using this popular cannabis extract. An increasing amount of athletes in the sporting world are starting to use CBD and accept the food supplement for its properties that help aid their recovery from the strains of their chosen sports. From American Football players such as Derrick Morgan to UFC Fighter Nate Diaz, the list of athletes now using CBD between training sessions is an ever growing one. Why not introduce CBD into your workout and let us know how you get on?

Cooking With CBD

The most popular ways to use CBD are by either vaping a CBD vape oil or by placing a few drops of CBD Oil Drops directly underneath the tongue. Vaping is, of course, great for those that use e cigarettes or vaporizers, and for those that don’t mind the bitter flavour of CBD Oil Drops, these methods provide you with the quickest route for the CBD to reach your bloodstream and subsequently take effect, by way of absorption through the mucous membranes in your mouth.

If the idea of vaping or placing drops under your tongue doesn’t sound appealing, then you can always incorporate the CBD Oil Drops with your food and drink. Packed with essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fatty acids, why not make a CBD salad dressing to have post-workout? Or how about a few drops placed in your morning juice? Due to the nature of ingesting the drops, the CBD will take a longer time to reach your bloodstream and will have to travel through your stomach which will ultimately cause the compound to gradually break down. If you’re using CBD with food or drink, you will have to use more drops to achieve the same effects as you would if you were vaping or using the drops under your tongue.

Keep Calm & Carry on with CBD

If the festive season has left you feeling a little wound up, then using CBD may help with a mental health kick and go some way to loosening your tautened disposition. Known for its calming qualities, introducing CBD into your life may help relieve any anxieties you might have for the year ahead and may potentially help calm your general outlook, approaching problems in an altogether more manageable experience.

One VSAVI customer commented;

“Bought for anxiety. Definitely helped, if I ever got heart palpitations as well it relieved almost instantly. Felt much more relaxed and calm.”

The holidays provide a great portion of time in which to rest and relax, but even when we’re supposed to be relaxing, our minds can still whir with worry and being able to ‘switch-off’ is often far easier said than done. By using CBD in your downtime, you may help your batteries re-charge and recuperate quicker, ready for you take on the year ahead.
