Frequently Asked Questions About Fitness, an Active Lifestyle and CBD

There is a lot of confusion surrounding CBD Products and the Cannabis industry. 'The CBD Supplier' hopes to answer some of the most commonly asked questions regarding CBD Oil and Cannabis in general. Check out our blog area which has more up to date information regarding the industry

How does CBD support an active lifestyle?

From pro footballers to golfing legends, everyone seems to be using CBD. For most people, an active lifestyle is a key part of feeling good and staying healthy. But if you’re struggling with inflammation, whether it’s sore muscles or aching joints, keeping fit and active is difficult. CBD has been shown to help with both pain and inflammation as it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it the ideal natural, effective way to support your health and well-being. Popular options for athletes include CBD balms for muscle and joint pain.

Can CBD help with sports-related joint pain?

Because CBD is a potent all-natural anti-inflammatory, it can decrease pain for those struggling with arthritis and other forms of joint inflammation. It’s dual effect: targeting both the source of the pain, as well as your brain’s perception of the pain, makes it a multi-faceted method for improving mobility as well as decreasing the use of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen.

What CBD products should you use to complement your fitness journey?

There are many ways to use CBD, although topical CBD products such as CBD balms that promote joint and muscle relief are a good place to start. These products are infused with CBD and can be applied directly onto the target area. You can expect to feel some relief between 15 and 45 minutes after using the CBD joint balm.

I compete professionally; can I use full-spectrum CBD?

If you are using a CBD tincture and regularly undergo drug testing for in order to compete, you may wish to use a broad-spectrum CBD with 0% THC to ensure there is no chance that you will have a positive test result. But, in reality, the THC levels in CBD is so low that even if you use full-spectrum CBD in order to benefit from the full range of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids (and the entourage effect), you will still test negative for THC.

How can I use topical CBD as part of my daily active lifestyle?

To get the best results, CBD should be incorporated into your active lifestyle at several points in the day. You can start the day with a CBD tincture take sublingually or CBD-infused coffee to kickstart your day. Then, during your morning routine, as well as before and after your workout, you could use a CBD balm on sore or inflamed area of the body such as your neck and shoulders or aching joints.

What is BSCG certified?

The BSCG certification is the most comprehensive certification programme in the world. The programme fills in the gaps that have become increasingly apparent due to lack of quality control and regulatory oversight. The BSCG Certified CBD™ program is “the first broad-spectrum third-party CBD and hemp product certification program available internationally”.

The certification program covers hemp supplier verification, contaminant testing, a daily dose limit for THC (for drug testing protection), a review of the claims made by the brand. Their batch certification reports are also publicly available for full transparency.

A CBD product that is BSCG certified means that users can enjoy better safety and risk management because the product will be within the stipulated THC levels so there is no risk of psychoactive effects or a positive drug test.

What does BSCG certification protect against?

The BSCG Certified Drug-Free ® program tests for 485 drugs, including 274 that are on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List. The additional 211 dugs cover over-the-counter, prescription and illicit medications that aren’t yet specifically banned in sports.
