How can CBD improve your performance in the gym & daily life?

CBD has exploded in the wellness world. The industry is booming and becoming more talked about in one form or another for helping someone with pain relief, recovery, sleep, or stress. Athletes, in particular, are increasingly touting its positive properties.

Science discovered a few decades ago that the human body naturally produces cannabinoids, and, in fact, has an entire network within the nervous system called the endocannabinoid system. CBD binds to receptors in that system and scientists believe they act as a neurotransmitter. Studies show that products such as CBD oils and CBD gels, support reduced inflammation, calm nervous reactions to stimuli, reduce anxiety, and prompt healthy brain function.

CBD is powerful, full stop. But what makes it particularly effective for athletes are the anti-inflammatory properties in particular.

If you’re a gym bunny, runner or just a lover of bodyweight exercises, you’re familiar with the soreness that comes the day after a workout.

Even if you’re not hitting the gym hard, the daily wear and tear of sitting at desks, working around the house or chasing kids can still be helped by incorporating CBD into your daily routine. Commonly reported to ease stress and anxiety, it’s a great way to kick-start your day.

Gaining the full benefits of CBD requires an understanding of which products work best for your system. But product lines like B-YOND Performance offer a variety of combinations and delivery mechanisms to help you identify what works best to improve your performance at the gym, in the outdoors, or just throughout your daily life.
