Hitting the slopes? As we enter peak season, make the most of your wintertime experience with the power of high-potency CBD.

There’s nothing quite as thrilling as being at one with nature on the wintery slopes, which is why skiing and snowboarding are some of Americans’ favorite winter activities. But before you map out all the fun and games, you need to prepare. While hitting up a ski resort can be one of the healthiest ways to spend your winter break, it can also be the riskiest if you don’t properly take care of your body.

Whether you’re a newbie learning to “PIZZA” or a seasoned pro, prep yourself with the following info to stay healthy before, during, and after you zip down the mountains.

Inflammation, Soreness, & CBD

Chairlift jitters, a couple of bruises from a fall, the following day of extreme soreness; your mountain adventure could be a pretty impactful one on your mind and body. Luckily, CBD is known to have properties to help all of the above… Let’s break them down:

Pain Management: Compared to traditional pain medications, CBD can be a compelling alternative as a natural and potentially safer remedy. Studies have indicated that CBD can reduce inflammation while alleviating pain. Conditions improved include joint pain, arthritis and multiple sclerosis. 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 early stages of research, is thought to have high anti-inflammatory benefits which can be useful both during and after winter activities. The ability to keep inflammation away by blocking receptor messages to the brain, CBD is able to assist the body in its recovery process.In addition to reducing inflammation and promoting cell repair, research shows that CBD may aid in strengthening bones. It can also promote the body’s ability to heal.

Anxiety Relief: CBD may have the potential to help manage anxiety. Researchers believe it changes the way the brain’s receptors respond to serotonin, which is closely associated with mental health outcomes. CBD products can help promote stress reduction and lead to fewer physiological effects from anxiety, like increased heart rate from nerve-inducing winter sports.

CBD’s Role in the ECS

What is your ECS and how do cannabinoids play a role in regulating the body?

CBD is one of many compounds found in sativa cannabis and hemp plants. Cannabidiol is in early stages of scientific research and studies, but the benefits are looking promising. 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. CBD can be utilized through a variety of methods to help with pain management and relief for winter sports enthusiasts of all kinds.

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 on the ECS System and CBD here.
