It’s no doubt that CBD is a natural fit for yoga whether you’re into an upbeat flow-style or vinyasa class, or a more gentle / restorative-style yoga. If you’re the type of person that is constantly wandering and overthinking, CBD helps. It tremendously helps the mind from overthinking, so when hitting the mat with CBD, you’ll truly enhance your experience!
Know that you’ll leave the mat feeling good, longer! When we begin to feel good, our brain naturally produces and releases “Anandamide”, a neurotransmitter which creates essentially “bliss” in the body. Most neurotransmitters though, break down quickly in the body which is why the state of “bliss” doesn’t last for long periods of time.
Research has found that CBD suppresses the enzymes that break down Anandamide; so longer lasting effects of “bliss” naturally occur due to the natural healing plant-power in CBD. So it is true that you’ll get an enhanced blissful feeling when incorporating CBD into your routine.
How Much CBD should I start with?
With many varieties, forms and manufacturers of CBD products, it can be overwhelming to choose. When looking into CBD therapy for the first time, it’s important to know if the product is lab tested. Choosing tested products ensure quality control and that you’re actually getting what you pay for.
Some forms of CBD include body lotions and salves which are applied to the body to aid with muscle and body pain. Other forms of CBD include ingested types such as tinctures, soft gels, and culinary products also known as “edibles”.
Regardless of what type of CBD product you choose, the team at Jade’s & Co. recommends starting with a 10 mg dose for the first few times. Once you are familiar and comfortable with the initial dose, it is safe to increase the dose by 10mg in order to achieve heightened effects.
What product do you recommend for first timer’s?
This is a very common question, and as a general rule of thumb it should be noted that tinctures begin working faster than any other form of ingested CBD. You can typically feel results within as little as 15 minutes when placing the tincture under your tongue. Although most tinctures are made with grape-seed oil or coconut oil, if taste is a concern then CBD soft gel capsules or other “edible” types of CBD may be a better fit. It’s important to understand soft gel capsules or other edibles can take a minimum of 30 minutes up to around 90 minutes before you feel the full effects.
Salves and lotions on the other hand are increasingly popular as a self-care routine among both women and men. Applying the CBD product after a shower, bath or yoga class, or before bed, can boost the effects allowing it to enter open pores. Please note you must be consistent with your intake of CBD in order to yield beneficial results of this plant-powered healing.
