CBD, Yoga and You
San Francisco Bay Area CBD and yoga practices may be something you’ve never tried, but the practice of stretching and yoga on CBD has been common across civilizations for centuries.
The benefits of yoga are nothing new. Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, yoga is a practice of combining physical exercise, meditation, relaxation and breath control together to develop a harmony of the body, the mind and the spirit. The literal meaning of the word yoga is “to unite” and many consider it to be the key to balanced living. Yoga is known to:
- Build strength
- Improve flexibility
- Improve balance
- Increase muscle tone
- Support joint health
- Prevent back pain
- Reduce stress
To someone just walking by the window of a yoga studio and looking in, it may appear to just be a whole lot of breathing and stretching. But anyone who has ever done yoga knows that it is far more challenging than it may appear. It entails not only the physical challenge of achieving and maintaining a pose but the additional challenge of quieting the mind — which is becoming harder and harder for many in the current climate.
Bay Area CBD and Yoga
Whether you have never tried yoga, are just a beginner or are an experienced yogi, there is something that can definitely help to improve your practice: CBD.
So Bay Area yoga and CBD sounds like the perfect pairing, right? Absolutely. Both yoga and CBD elevate consciousness. And combining yoga and cannabis is also nothing new. Cannabis is actually referred to in the ancient Hindu texts of the Vedas (which is the Sanskrit word for “knowledge”) as one of the five sacred plants. It is said to be something that was compassionately given to humans as an offering of joy to help liberate us from worry and fear. To some, CBD is the very best part of the cannabis plant. Stretching and yoga on CBD in San Francisco are becoming increasingly popular. But what exactly is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is the second most abundant cannabinoid produced within the hemp plant. Unlike the first most abundant cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC), CBD is not a psychoactive compound and does not “get you high.”
Stretching and Yoga on CBD in San Francisco
What happens when you put yoga and CBD together?
If you find your mind wandering during your yoga practice or find yourself thinking, “I’m supposed to be Zen! Ugh, why can’t I quiet my thoughts?! I’m doing this wrong,” CBD can help with that. It can help you feel centered and more focused. It can also relax your muscles and allow you to go deeper into your poses. You may also find that stretching on CBD is easier.
If you wish that you could maintain that post-yoga feeling of bliss for a longer period of time even after you’re done with the final shavasana, CBD can help with that. Seriously. So whether used before, during or after, CBD and yoga are a match made in heaven. Stretching on CBD is divine and post-yoga CBD feelings are miraculous.
And the best part is, you don’t need to use a whole lot of CBD to potentially receive these benefits! Experts state that patients have reported significant improvement while using just a few milligrams of cannabinoids per day.
Yoga on CBD in San Francisco has been all the rage for quite some time. In the Bay Area, CBD and yoga classes are easy to find, but it’s not just for “us hippies in California” — CBD yoga classes are springing up all over the country. Whether your practice is with others in a class or just you at home, incorporating CBD into your yoga practice could be life-changing.
