The Power of CBD + Yoga

CBD and yoga share many of the same purported benefits, so it makes perfect sense that some yoga practitioners have chosen to incorporate CBD into their yoga practice. Since CBD doesn’t have intoxicating properties, it’s an appropriate addition to asana and may help enhance the experience.

From simple relaxation to relieving pain, yoga and CBD can both have a positive impact on your state of mind and way of being — together or separately.

How to use CBD in your yoga practice

CBD has a wide range of listed benefits, including but not limited to:

  • Relief from anxious thoughts
  • Reduction of pain symptoms
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Enhancing mood
  • Improving focus

Anyone who’s taken a few yoga classes has likely heard their yoga teacher emphasize the importance of all of the attributes listed above.

So, how can you combine the two?

First, experiment with CBD off of the mat to assess its effects on you personally and then evaluate your intended style of practice. CBD is often a perfect fit for Yin yoga, or a restorative or gentle class, especially if it makes you feel more relaxed and in tune with your thoughts and body.

However, some people find that CBD helps focus their mind and invigorate them, which could enhance a power vinyasa session or more upbeat class. Even the most experienced yogi can find it challenging to quiet their mind while on the mat — CBD can help.

CBD can help make savasana feel like it lasts longer.

If you’re a fan of those blissful post-practice sensations experienced in savasana, CBD can prolong that feeling of floating. Not only does CBD help with sore joints and muscles by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce an anti-inflammatory response, it can also triggers neurotransmitters that tell your brain that you feel good.

Yoga and CBD are both effective at reducing stress while improving focus, pain management, and overall health. The natural synergy that occurs when combining both can give your asana a beneficial boost. Take your yoga practice to the next level by adding CBD to your arsenal of wellness tools.
