Make IGNITE CBD Part of Your Workout Routine!

Let's be honest — there's nothing better than getting in a great gym sesh. Every day you dedicate yourself to fitness, you get closer to the best version of yourself. 

If you're obsessed with the gym and looking to improve your performance and recovery, you've likely considered taking CBD before a workout. CBD and working out complement one another. It can help athletes and gym goers get more from their workout — helping them improve mentally and physically.

After a tough leg day or trying out a new HIIT exercise, CBD is there to help you with muscle recovery and help you stay ahead of your workout goals.

Here's everything you need to know about CBD and fitness:

How to use CBD in your Workout Routine

Going to the gym and getting active is a great form of self-care, and taking CBD is, too! If you want to incorporate CBD into your workout routine, here are some of the benefits you can look forward to:

Relieve Muscle Soreness 

CBD is a great tool gym-goers can use for muscle recovery. Studies suggest that CBD can aid with sports recovery and improve the health and performance of athletes. 

When used regularly, it can help delay muscle soreness and reduce inflammation. If you want to use CBD for muscle relaxation, apply it topically, drop a few drops into your pre-workout, or try both methods! We recommend applying CBD after a workout for the best results. This will help you combat the soreness and help your muscles recover quicker.

Combat Anxious Feelings

Do you get anxious before heading into the gym? Are you dealing with intrusive thoughts, depression, or anxiety? If so, it could be what’s standing in the way of your progress. 

Fitness is just as much a mental game as it is a physical game. If you don't have the right mindset when you get ready to exercise, you'll never see the results you want to see. With the help of CBD before a workout, you can help your mind relax and eliminate the side effects of anxiety, depression, or other mental health disorders you might be struggling with. 

If you're looking to combat anxiety, we recommend trying our Broad Spectrum CBD drops. This formula contains a potent blend of Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT), CBD Hemp Extract, and Terpenes. These CBD drops can be applied topically or incorporated into your diet. 

Get Better Sleep At Night 

After a long gym session, the one thing you need is sleep... Getting a good night's sleep is vital to your progress in the gym. It helps your muscles recover quicker and re-energizes your body, so you can take it to the gym the next day. 

Adults should aim to get at least 7-10 hours of sleep at night. However, this is sometimes easier said than done. CBD can be a great tool to improve your sleep patterns. It has a calming effect on the body, which will help you relax and unwind after a long, much-needed gym sesh. To improve your quality of sleep, we recommend taking CBD orally after a workout for the best results. 

CBD and The Endocannabinoid System

So, why do CBD and working out go hand in hand? It's because of the way CBD works with your endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is part of your nervous system. This system interacts with different molecules, receptors, and enzymes in your body and affects your mood, metabolism, appetite, and sleep patterns. When you pair CBD and exercise, you stimulate your endocannabinoid system. This leads to a boost of energy, mood, and motivation.

The Best CBD for Fitness 

There are many ways to incorporate CBD and exercise into your routine. Whether you're looking for a topical you can apply to your legs after leg day, or you want a serum into your diet — there's a type of CBD that can help you get the results you want to see. 

Here are some of our favorites. 

350mg Full Spectrum CBG Drops 

After a great workout — there's nothing better than getting your daily dose of Full Spectrum CBG. These CBD-rich drops contain high levels of CBG and are formulated with Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT), CBD Hemp Extract, and Terpenes. The presence of terpenes and other plant compounds helps magnify the effects of CBD and provide an entourage effect. This effect may help treat unwanted pain and inflammation and help with muscle relaxation and recovery. CBG is also known for its uplifting effect on the body, which may help motivate you before a big gym sesh.
