CBD for stress…the calming effects of CBD

CBD Studios founder, formerly a personal trainer I have always lead an active lifestyle. I am no stranger to the daily stresses that can impact our mental health and wellbeing. After trying CBD I found the results beyond beneficial by its calming effect, which made life easier when things got overwhelming.

I noticed the positive effects it was having physically too. Notably the backache from previous sports injuries was diminishing and knee pain was massively reduced when running. With this, CBD Studios Chamonix was created to offer products for body and mind. CBD Studios have created natural CBD wellbeing products to meet this need, complementing daily active life.

I have continued using CBD ever since, as I undeniably feel relief and notice its naturally therapeutic calming effects.

It has evidently been a difficult two years, with Covid 19 and being a solo parent with two children aged four and five.

CBD for calm since the Covid pandemic

Since the outbreak of Covid19 I have been witness to and been faced with many difficult and stressful situations.

Over the last year we have been confronted with confinement, home schooling, compromised family situations, change in work, health implications….the list goes on. With the stress that all this may incur, it is advantageous to at least try and maintain a sense of calm. Which by no means is easy and we often feel the need to explode!

Whilst it may be helpful to take some deep breaths or check we taking enough exercise when we are feeling anxious,  it is also becoming more and more favourable to also supplement with CBD oil.

Why is CBD effective for stress?

Our body has natural cannabinoids (CBD), which work to keep the body in balance by regulating the systems that control stress and anxiety, such as serotonin  (happy hormone), and cortisol  (stress hormone). When faced with the situations of last year these systems may have become exhausted. By using CBD as a supplement it provides a natural boost to keep these systems balanced helping you calm an anxious mind promoting a better sleep.

All our CBD products are made with organic CBD, products and extracts. They help with sleep, calm, skincare, and provide relief,

CBD oil

An easy way to take CBD as a supplement is CBD oil drops, consuming a few drops of oil under your tongue. Drop your dose under the tougue morning or night or as you feel the need.
It is quickly absorbed into the blood stream via the capillaries under the tounge.

If you feel stress taking over and need to manage it better…CBD oil will do just that. This CBD oil formula allows you to maintain a balance of life, allowing you to better cope with the stresses of everyday life. These oils have no trace of THC, so are not harmful to your concentration or can alter your sensations. There is no taste, so a perfect solution for people sensitive to other earthy flavors of this type.

CBD and biking

CBD and cycling

Cycling has increased in popularity over the years as an environmentally friendly form of transport, as a hobby and a sporting activity. The increase in cycle paths for roads and off road bike tracks has made riding more accessible and great fun.

Biking is a great form of exercise as it improves cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and flexibility. The exercise in itself is also a remedy for stress relief and all the benefits of fresh air and the outdoors.

By looking after your physical and mental health you are more likely to reach your exercise potential or fitness goals.

Research on CBD is still in the early stages, however some of what is being discovered is showing promising to help your body to prepare and recover.

The significant and important noted benefits of CBD include, relaxation, improving sleep quality, and anti-inflammation providing relief from muscle discomfort.

CBD for cycling

CBD is one of many components found naturally in the hemp plant.

It is also produced naturally in the human body. CBD helps the body’s endocannabinoid system, which controls the internal balance of natural chemicals notably associated with pain, fatigue, stress, and anxiety.

This is called homeostasis, a term used to describe the process of maintaining the internal balance in an ever-changing external environment.

There is research to suggest that by using CBD as a supplement it can support these functions to maintain balance and overall wellness.

There are many reports that CBD effectively relieves aching muscle and tired joints before and after exercise.

Its soothing anti-inflammatory virtues are highly appreciated by athletes, including cyclists.

Cyclist Teal Stetson-Lee chooses CBD instead of ibuprofen to relieve muscle discomfort from exercising.

How can CBD be used as a cyclist?

Reduces muscle soreness after biking

When you are pushing yourself during a hard ride or competition you will tear the muscle tissue which then creates inflammation. The body will naturally start to repair and build up the damaged tissue, to result stronger muscle tissue. 

However when you push too far, the inflammation and pain can be too much for the body to deal with. This is when you may want to use painkillers or anti-inflammatories.

CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory that can be used after biking for relief of cramps and aching joints so to promote recovery.  Unlike other pharmaceutical drug products, CBD has few side effects and there is no risk of overdose.

Accelerates the recovery of cyclists

CBD is often used after exercise for muscle recovery but it is most widely recognised for its relaxing effects. Relaxing the body’s circulatory system and overworked muscles after exercise will encourage the body to focus on repair. With this power, CBD can therefore reduce recovery time after exercise, training sessions or races.

Promotes sleep

All athletes know that sleep and rest is essential. It is really important to sleep well to be in good shape the next day and recover well.  When the body is tired, performance is compromised as well as the risk of injury being greater.

Evidence is continuing to show that CBD can calm an active mind to help with sleep.

Helps to treat anxiety

CBD oil may help your physical performance and daily life, by helping you regulate anxiety and stress. Exercise is a remedy for stress itself, but if you need a more of a boost, CBD may help promote the calming of mind and body.

The nerves before competitions may be alleviated by CBD oil as it is an effective natural supplement to treat anxiety .

Choosing CBD for cycling

For tired over worked muscles we recommend CBD recovery balm. Its anti-inflammatory properties will help calm aches and discomfort after exercise. It can be applied to knees, shoulders or wherever you need relief.

In addition CBD oil is suitable as an all round wellbeing supplement to boost your body’s natural systems associated with discomfort, fatigue, stress, and anxiety.

If you are ready to try CBD balm or CBD oil or both it could be your next steps towards a more relaxed comfortable body and mind.

CBD for muscle relief and after exercise

CBD has become a widely accepted supplement because of its anti-inflammatory properties. CBD is indeed a supplement from hemp plant but it is also produced naturally in our body as part of the Endocannabinoid system.

The Endocannabinoid system regulates many of the different systems we have to our control our natural functions, this is homeostasis.

CBD for athletes

If you work out or exercise regularly you accept that inflammation and pain can be the outcome of a hard session.

One valuable way that CBD may help athletes is by relieving and minimizing inflammation post-workout.

Recent studies have shown that CBD oil works at receptor sites to reduce inflammation. A reduction in inflammation would result in reduction of muscle soreness, muscle and joint ache after exercise.
