Being fit and active doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be all lean chicken and dry salad leaves, sure you can throw in the occasional salad dressing, but more often than not sweets or treats are forbidden. This fact alone makes the task of maintaining a healthy lifestyle daunting, do we love sweets and sugary goodness because of the taste, or is it more about seeing the items or baked goods and eating them out of habit.

For the majority of people, it is the latter and, thankfully, a solution has been considered which has significantly changed the way people view an active lifestyle and maintain it.

No, we are not talking about a fad pill or a diet capsule that takes your weight loss to the extreme, we are looking at an organic, all-natural ingredient that has essentially been around for centuries but its health benefits are only recently being discovered and implemented into lifestyles.

Wonder ingredient.

We are looking at a naturally-grown plant known as the Hemp plant, with its flowers and main components known as CBD and THC respectively. THC, known as the black sheep of the Hemp plant (read about it here https://www.healthline.com/health/cbd-vs-thc#_noHeaderPrefixedContent ) is labeled as the negative component due to its hallucinogenic and psychoactive effects and is used more for recreational use.

CBD, also known by the name Cannabidiol, is the one we will be discussing and taking a closer look at and how its positive health effects have improved the quality of lives of users across the globe.

The main appeal factor for this ingredient is that it is a chemical, and preservative-free alternative to the generic and usual off-the-shelf supplements we find in supermarkets. A plant compound that is extracted using various methods, CO2 is the most effective (but also a bit pricier, although, you get what you pay for am I right?) and implemented into a diverse portfolio of products.

And this is where it gets exciting.

  • When you train and push hard at the gym you essentially break down the fibers in the muscles, CBD can help to reduce if not prevent any inflammation allowing them to repair, grow, and recover quicker.
  • Often due to excessive sweating in a heavy gym session the pores of the skin can get blocked and cause dirt and oil to build up causing pimples and if not treated or you don’t scrub enough afterward this can lead to acne. Cannabidiol can help prevent overproduction of the oil glands thus helping you maintain clearer skin.

Anti-inflammatory.
