Cannabinoids are a great post-workout supplement for the autonomic nervous system, helping the body get back into the parasympathetic, or rest and digest. We know you know the benefits of Quill-ing up!
Surprisingly, pre-workout cannabinoids can make a huge difference! Read on...
Steady state cardio can be done in the parasympathetic nervous system. This keeps the body relaxed and loose. Furthermore, the endocannabinoid anandamide is also one of the key chemical components of “runners high” THC gets you high by mimicking this endocannabinoid and binding to CB1 receptors telling the brain to feel massive amounts of euphoria. CBD on the other hand, protects anandamide from being metabolized. Therefore, CBD is a great pre-workout to maintain your happy. =)
We have worked with many athletes who supplement with CBD to help maintain focus and mental clarity intra-workout, a state of calm. We have all had the experience of watching a professional athlete in the zone; it is effortless domination. Using CBD supplementation has had anecdotal effects of helping athletes achieve a more in-the-zone state during workouts and events. Want a little boost in this effect? Try BOOMS today!
And then there’s recovery...Every athlete must remember that there are three facets to recovery: metabolic, muscular and nervous system. Those three aspects make up a large part of performance as well, but they are the pillars of recovery and of equal importance. CBD can help all three of these pillars based on HOW it is used.
Until next time,
Stay healthy, my friends!
