Picture yourself shredding down the slopes, taking in the crisp, mountain air. What could possibly make that scene any better? Two words, three letters—lost range.® CBD.
Before you hit the slopes, it’s important to prepare and take proper care of your body. You can make the most of your winter sports experiences with the power of high-potency CBD.
Inflammation, Soreness, & CBD
Pre-ride jitters? Bruises from a couple of wipe outs? Extreme soreness the next day? The mountains can take a toll on your mind and body. Luckily, CBD is known to have properties to help with all of the above. Let’s break it down.
Pain Management: CBD can be an effective, and potentially safer, remedy for pain relief compared to traditional medications. Studies show that CBD use was associated with improvements in pain (83%), physical function (66%), and sleep quality (66%). A study from The Arthritis Foundation also found most CBD users reported improvement in physical function, sleep, and well-being.
Anti-inflammatory: CBD, though still in the early stages of research, is thought to have high anti-inflammatory benefits, which can be useful both during and after winter activities. In addition to reducing inflammation and promoting cell repair, research shows that CBD may aid in strengthening bones. It could also promote the body’s ability to heal.
Anxiety Relief: CBD may have the potential to help manage anxiety. Stress is an important contributor to anxiety disorders. In this study, systemically administered CBD reduced acute increases in heart rate and blood pressure induced by restraint stress, as well as the delayed (24 h) anxiogenic effects of stress in the EPM, partially by 5-HT1AR activation [67, 73]. In other words, CBD products have the potential to help promote stress reduction like increased heart rate from nerve-inducing winter sports.
CBD’s Role in the ECS
CBD is one of many compounds found in sativa cannabis and hemp plants. Cannabidiol is in the early stages of scientific research and studies, but the benefits are looking promising. How? CBD works directly with the human endocannabinoid system or ECS.
This direct interaction can lead to reduced pain and inflammation through CBD’s communication with receptors transmitting messages to the brain. CBD attaches itself to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS which are responsible for sending transmissions to the brain and central nervous system and can aid in reducing aches, pains, and inflammation.
Whether you’re hitting the slopes or gliding along the ice, you can encourage a faster recovery time by stimulating your endocannabinoid system. Learn more about the ECS System and CBD here.
Best CBD Products For Winter Sports
Adding CBD to your winter sports arsenal is trending for a reason, but there are so many products available on the market. How can you know which brand and product is best for you?
CBD tinctures are great for rapid relief as it is consumed sublingually and enters the bloodstream almost immediately.

Know Your Source
Finally, when it comes to buying quality CBD, it’s important to know what ingredients are in it. To ensure you are purchasing a premium CBD product from a reputable brand, it’s important to review documentation that shows that you’re actually getting what it’s advertising on the label.
One of the most important documents a CBD manufacturer should offer is a certificate of analysis, which will help you better understand exactly what is in the product you are considering buying – and more importantly – consuming. (Read more on understanding the COA here). And always look for third-party testing results that indicate the formula is clear of contaminants and contains appropriate CBD and THC levels (Read more on how to spot a quality product here).
