What Is The Best Way To Use CBD?

Whats the best way to take CBD

Tinctures are proven to be one of the best ways to deliver CBD oil directly into the blood stream.

But, If you are OK with inhaling vapor or smoke,  Inhaling hemp flower is the optimal and fastest cannabinoid delivery method due to the massive quantity of Cannabinoid receptors found in the lungs.

Ingesting or eating CBD takes the longest to process due to the time it takes your body to process and deliver the nutrients.

CBD Oil Tinctures (THC Free)

CBD Oil Tinctures are the perfect alternative to help support everyday wellness.

Broad Spectrum means THC free in most cases.

When a CBD manufacturer is making a CBD Oil Isolate (like the one below), the process used will effectively remove all other Cannabinoids and Terpenes from the oil and all that is left is the Cannabidiol(CBD).

This means all Terpenes and other cannabinoids are removed from the oil leaving nothing but pure Cannabidiol.

4 thoughts on “CBD as a Pre Workout?”

  1. Great review, I really learned a lot from the article. 

    I even did not think that it would be permitted for athletes to take CBD products. I honestly have not tried any CBD products. 

    I go for organic food and a bit of supplementation to give myself that extra boost for an extreme performance when exercising. 

    Do you think CBD will branch out its products for post-workout intake nutrition?

    1. Thank you for your comment CBD as a Pre Workout.

      Professional Athletes must adhere to the rules set forth by their organizations.  Although it is completely legal for anyone to consume CBD,  some professional sports organizations still ban CBD for the athletes they employ. 

      The fact is that CBD is being shown to have amazing effects on the body and mind.  Athlete could benefit greatly from adding CBD.

      Multiple companies out there have CBD infused pre and post workout supplements. 

  2. Wow! 

    I never knew that cbd can really help a lot when taken before working out. 

    Well, I have never tried doing it like this but I do take cbd.. 

    Knowing this information about the effects of CBD for a pre workout has actually given me a whole new drive to try this when I am going for my next workout probably tomorrow. 

    Thanks so much for sharing here

    1. Nath, Thank you for your comment on CBD as a Pre Workout

      CBD effects the body by activating the Endocannabinoid System or ECS

      Read more about the ECS here

      This is important because the body has been proven to better “self regulate” both internal and external environment factors when the ECS is working strong.  

      This aids in post workout recovery, blood pressure regulation and nutrient distribution.  Some cannabinoids like Delta 8 THC help with settling you into a deep REM sleep witch aids in post workout recovery.
