Grown and extracted in the USA, Medterra CBD products are made with non-GMO, organically grown hemp. As some of the purest on the market, Medterra CBD is guaranteed 0% THC and free of unwanted additives. In a world where we’re constantly on-the-go, it’s important to set aside time to ease our minds. There are a number of ways to help reduce stress and anxiety, but one practiced by many is yoga. The mental, physical, and emotional benefits that come of yoga are infinite: from increased flexibility, to heightened spirituality, to promoting mindfulness, and more. Many who frequently practice yoga find that they’re able to feel grounded in the moment, but how can we take our yoga practice to the next level?

 

Two words often associated with yoga are, “relaxation” and “recovery”. These two words are also used often when explaining the benefits of CBD. Coincidence? With the recent legalization of industrialized hemp and the search for all-natural alternatives to medicine, it’s no surprise that interest in, and recognition of, the benefits of CBD are on the rise in the United States.

 

Refresher: CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant that works in conjunction with receptors in our bodies endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is known to regulate many of our daily functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, pain and hormones. CBD binds to receptors throughout our body to help maintain homeostasis within this system. With natural anti-inflammatory properties, many turn to CBD to help with relief from pain and anxiety.

 

CBD is a natural complement to yoga practice. Have you ever walked into class, stepped onto your mat, and thought “I wish I could just silence my brain!”? Many people find that CBD helps to facilitate the relaxation they’re looking for during yoga. Both CBD and Yoga aid balance, promote wellness and relaxation, and facilitate focus. With that being said, let’s dig deeper into how CBD can heighten your yoga experience.

 

Since CBD is a non-psychoactive component and doesn’t alter the mind in the same way that THC does, many Yogis incorporate it into their routine both before and after each yoga session. They find that taking CBD oil or capsules before practicing yoga can help their body perform at its best, and assist in achieving an optimal level of focus. Our favorite is Medterra’s CBD oil tincture. Consistency is key here; you’ll get the most out of CBD when taking it every day!

 

Post-yoga is when sore muscles and joints set in, and many Yogis turn to Medterra’s Rapid Cooling Cream to provide relief. Combining CBD, arnica, menthol and a number of other all-natural ingredients, it’s the perfect solution for muscle fatigue. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD will have you back on the mat in no time.
