Why should you use CBD and how do you use CBD as an athlete?
A frequently asked question to us is, why should I use CBD and how do I use it? We try to explain that based on the profiles below. Calculate your CBD in Milligrams per day. Bottles that have % indications must be converted into Milligrams. a 10 Ml bottle with 10% CBD contains 1000 Mg CBD. You get 200 drops from a bottle. 1000 mg divided by 200 drops is then 5 mg per drop. A 2.5% 10 Ml bottle: 250 Mg CBD divided by 200 drops is then 1.25 Mg CBD per drop. Depending on the reason for taking CBD, you use 20 mg to 100 mg ore more per day. You can do this by using various products such as oil, tablets, protein and superfoods. In addition to the daily Milligrams CBD, athletes also use the so-called topicals such as the Freeze or the Salve. These products applied directly to the painful muscles and joints provide immediate relief.
Profile 1 Age is just a number:
In your teenage years you already worked out a lot. You played outside every day and took your bike everywhere you went. You climbed, you jumped, you fell, broke a wrist or an arm and slept like a baby every night. You could sleep until late all day if possible. You are now a few decades further and some ailments and injuries have been added. You want to sleep late, but you always wake up early. Also during your vacation or in weekends. You work out because you want to stay fit and know that exercise is important for your health. You are still a teenager in your head, which is why you occasionally join in with the rest. You are fit, so you will recover. Just not as fast as in your teenage years.
CBD can help you recover quickly from your "youthful" actions. You can sleep better and you can experience less pain from the muscles and joints that you already used half a life or more.
Typical CBD products you use are:
Gaia Botanics Salve or Living Freeze to massage those painful, stiff muscles and joints, so that they feel like you're in your teenage years again.
CBD Oil, CBD tablets, CBD Superfood or CBD Protein you use daily in a quantity of Milligrams. Just like your extra vitamins, Omega 3, Magnesium and healthy food.
Depending on your age, your ailments, your weight and digestion and your training intensity, you take around 25 Mg to 75 Mg or more per day. You first start with 20 - 25 Mg in the first week and increase the number of Mg slowly until you sleep well, experience less pain and can train every day. You feel like a teenager again with CBD and your age is just a number.
Example: Roald 55+, trains 5 to 6 times (CrossFit and Boxing ). Roald takes 85 Mg daily.
Profile 2: The warrior:
You study, work, work out and travel around the world. You may also have a little baby who requires all your energy and time, but you are there for your child, your family and your friends. Your professional career is important to you. You are ambitious. A few times a week you need your “just you” time. An hour of training. Jogging, cycling, yoga, fitness or maybe even a full 90 minutes game of hockey? You don't have real illnesses, you are still young . Your friends and family call you a warrior. Occasionally you think; how do i keep this up? How many hours can a normal person spend in one day? You want a bit more peace and quiet in your head and feel a bit more energetic.
CBD can help you to get your energy level up, give you some peace in your busy head and allow you to recover quickly from all your activities. Just check, with all your travel to exotic places, where you can take your CBD.
Typical CBD products for you:
CBD Oil, CBD tablets, CBD Superfood or CBD Protein that you use daily in a quantity of Milligrams. Just like your extra vitamins, Omega 3, Magnesium, your chia seeds, your granola in your yoghurts and other healthy food.
Depending on your age, your illnesses, your weight, digestion time and your training intensity, you take around 15 Mg to 35 Mg or more per day. You start with 10 - 15 Mg in the first week and increase the number of Mg’s slowly until you sleep well, don't feel exhausted every day and can train every day if you just had a little more time. Your friends do not only think you are a warrior, you are and you also feel like a warrior!
Example: Roos 20+, trains 3 times a week. Weight 50 kilos eats vegan, studies, works and travels all over the world if she can.
Roos takes Prásino superfood daily in her SKIR / Yoghurt and a 12 Mg melting tablet before she goes to sleep. That’s 22 Mg daily.
Profile 3: Beyond amateur:
You are above average in sports in general. You have been exercising for a while and are among the best in your gym, club or country. You train more than an hour every day and you just want to get better. You strive for perfection. Bigger, stronger, faster and better is what you want to be.
This all comes with a lot of pain (literally) and effort. You sometimes wake up with cramps at night. Not so strange with how you let your body suffer every day. You might want to stay in bed for a day, but no, you have the discipline that many others do not have. That is why you are also above average in your sport and you are already looking forward to your next competition. You are naturally anxious before game day comes, but that is part of it.
CBD can help you get a better grip on that anxiety. Some peace and quiet in your head before the game. Your body screams for a rest day to recover. CBD can make your body recover faster and also gives you the energy to go full out again tomorrow.
The CBD products that you take every day are:
Gaia Botanics Salve or Living Freeze to massage those painful, stiff muscles and joints, so that they feel like you had a rest day yesterday.
CBD Oil, CBD tablets, CBD Superfood or CBD Protein you use daily in a quantity of Milligrams. Just like your extra vitamins, Omega 3, Creatine, Magnesium and healthy food.
Depending on your age, your ailments, your weight, digestion cycle and your training intensity you take around 25 Mg to 50 Mg or more per day. You start with 20 - 25 Mg in the first week and increase the number of Mg slowly until you sleep well, experience less pain and can train every day and the next competition you will be on that podium again.
Example: Marcha 40+, trains 6 to 7 times a week and does multiple workouts a day. Weight 68 kg takes 50 Mg to 60 Mg CBD per day in drops / tablets, superfood, CBD vitamins and CBD protein. Before going to sleep, she massages with Salve on her muscles that feel sore. If there is a pain, then she uses Freeze for instant relief.
