CBD has become more and more popular in the last few years. But what are the benefits behind the buzzword? It can be confusing to understand how CBD might benefit your life in real terms and how to start introducing it into your routine. CBD is a multi-faceted ingredient that’s available in a variety of forms, from CBD Drinks to CBD Oil, gummies to topical creams and gels, meaning it has a variety of benefits depending on how and when you take it.
Before we start, it’s important to understand how CBD interacts with your body, as each person will experience the benefits of CBD differently thanks to this uniqueness! Enter, the endocannabinoid system…
HOW DO ENDOCANNABINOIDS WORK?
Similar to cannabinoids, endocannabinoids are produced by our own bodies. When the endocannabinoid system is functioning properly, it impacts mood, memory, and sleep as well as factors that have an effect on health, such as inflammation, the cardiovascular system, liver function, and the reproductive system. The endocannabinoid system also regulates a number of critical bodily processes, many of which are vital to maintaining good health. Even if you don't consume any additional cannabis supplements, such as CBD, your body still has an active endocannabinoid system. But, incorporating cannabinoids into your routine can optimize the system, making things even more efficient.

Among CBD's many advantages is its ability to reduce inflammation in the body. Many people, therefore, use it to treat chronic pain or illness (always consult a healthcare professional before treating a condition with CBD). Thanks to this benefit, CBD is also popular with athletes. Muscle damage from exercise triggers inflammation naturally, and severe or repeated injury can make recovery slow and painful. Because CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, it’s a great option to incorporate into your post-exercise routine to aid this process.Discover more: CBD Drinks and Athletic Performance
