CBD protein shakes do what standard protein shakes do — help you build muscle and contribute to weight loss programs — with the addition of reducing inflammation. If your muscles are less inflamed, your recovery is faster and less painful.
There’s no lack of CBD coffee, with many DIY recipes online and plenty of brands making their own versions. Depending on the blend and the maker of the product, each cup of coffee can contain different degrees of CBD, with all providing some relaxation and reigning in some of the anxious side effects of caffeine. Some brands you should check out include Strava Craft Coffee, Buddha Beans Coffee Co. and Flower Power Coffee.
If you’re planning on going through an intense workout class or hike, an energy bar is always a good thing to have on you. With the addition of CBD, these bars claim to help manage body and joint aches, ensuring your workouts are better and that your body can recover faster afterwards. Some of the most well reviewed brands include SNAAC CBD and Wise Bars.
Although there are plenty of CBD beverages in the market, you can make your own CBD cocktails now with mixers like Aurora Elixirs, which have different flavors and some amount of CBD per serving. Although alcohol and CBD mixed together could quickly transform into a very sleepy experience, some research suggests that CBD can protect the liver from alcohol damage.
