Modern life is fast and demanding, which is why everyone from life coaches to wellness experts continuously keep emphasizing the importance of “balance.” The to-do list of any adult’s life is endless. From things like balancing friends and relationships to health and work, the list just keeps going on.
To keep the balance whilst juggling everything, one needs to be in the right place mentally and physically. Thankfully, there are things like Yoga and CBD that can enable you to achieve that equilibrium in life.
Yoga, as most of us are aware, is all about striking a holistic balance of the mind and body. Maintaining balance while performing difficult poses or asanas requires time and patience. It takes time because, in order to balance your body, your mind needs to be completely alert and relaxed, and it needs to be both at the same time to be able to perform Yoga. This may be tough to achieve but is extremely rewarding in the long run.
Yoga requires complete meditative focus to work on the body. The benefits of yoga are mostly visible once someone is off the mat. It can help support better sleep, blood circulation, and mood. Studies suggest that the reason why yoga works wonders in the human body is because of its interactions with the Endocannabinoid System also know as ECS. The ECS is responsible for creating a balance in the systems of the body and providing better digestion, memory, appetite, and even mood.
What does the ECS have to do with Yoga and CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is many of the substances of cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant. It’s non-psychoactive meaning that it won’t get you high. It’s known for its ability to relieve pain, nausea, stress, and more.
Just like yoga, CBD does this by working on the Endocannabinoid system. CBD blocks the enzyme that breaks down the Anandamide, which is a lipid mediator that binds the cannabinoid receptors together so that it can stick around in your body for longer periods of time.
Much like with CBD, the balance will not present itself within minutes of first trying CBD. However, a person with an endocannabinoid system that is out of balance is likely to feel the effects much sooner than someone with a better endocannabinoid tuning. It’s likely to feel feeling the benefits after about a week of consistent use, and just like yoga, you’ll feel a sense of calm and relaxation. With time, you’ll notice that your ability to handle stress has become stronger, and your focus has increased too.
Yoga gives you the perfect balance of calmness and alertness – and so does CBD.
The practice of combining CBD with Yoga is not new. People across the US have been combining both to reap the benefits of the natural compound found in hemp and the ancient practice of Yoga.
Not only do they share common benefits, but CBD also makes it easier to practice Yoga by increasing the focus and leaving a sense of calm.
