“My friend and I were riding our horses at the time in my hometown of Big Bear. We began to pick up speed and my horse got too excited and started bucking. I felt myself starting to come off, so I closed my eyes to try and relax my body but when I opened them, I saw the sky above me moving and when I looked to my left, I saw my horse’s legs running with me because I was being dragged.”

CBD for Muscle Pain

Perhaps the most common use for CBD is for pain management. Cannabidiol (CBD) has numerous properties that help with anti-inflammation and pain. As a result, CBD is a great option for people who are dealing with muscle pain or chronic pain every day. Chronic pain will affect everyone at some point in their life and it’s good to know there is a natural remedy that can help. When combining CBD into your daily pain management regiment you can help relieve pain associated with muscle soreness and inflammation. CBD directly interacts with the Endocannibinoid System within our bodies.

“For the following 8 years I was told I would never be the same because the bones were so out of alignment. I would have to go to the chiropractor once a month because of my back spasms. For the past two years, I’ve really immersed myself into Pilates to build up the muscles and my spine, but I utilize the balm to relax the muscles. The patches are also great for my busy schedule.”

ENDOCANNIBINOID SYSTEM & PAIN MANAGEMENT

 If you haven’t heard of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), there’s no better time than now. Our bodies have an innate network of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors that occur naturally. Everyone has the receptors, whether they’ve used cannabis to treat their ailments or not. Studies have shown the ECS to be present in every system in the human body, which is why cannabis is so useful as a means of medical treatment. Learn more about the Endocannabinoid System from our knowledge center.

CBD FOR CHRONIC PAIN

 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it is estimated that 20.4% of U.S. adults (50.0 million) had chronic pain. It was also estimated that 8.0% of U.S. adults (19.6 million) had high-impact chronic pain, with higher prevalence associated with advancing age. 

The most common medical treatments for chronic pain are nerve blocks, steroids, and opioids. However, narcotics and NSAIDs, like aspirin and ibuprofen don’t have to be your only option for pain relief. Options such as physical therapy, self-care, and CBD can be easily incorporated you’re your daily life to help with chronic pain. Choosing CBD as a natural, plant-based pain relief option can dramatically improve your health when used daily.

CBD is fundamentally different than most painkillers because it is not addictive and non-toxic. Whether you’re are suffering from chronic pain in your back, neck, hands, feet, or elsewhere CBD can help. Want to learn more? Check out our knowledge center.

Hemp CBD for Self Care

Incorporating Hemp CBD into your daily health and wellness regiment is a great way to supercharge your self care. People from all walks of life are using CBD to decrease stress, manage pain, and even shorten recovery after workouts. The medicinal qualities of Hemp CBD help decrease muscle inflammation and aid in sleep. It works by activating the Endocannabinoid receptors located within your muscle tissue while reducing strain and common aches. 

“I work in the fitness industry and I teach about 25 classes per week. They range from cardio hit classes, weight training to yoga, which is a lot on my body.”

Hemp CBD for Fitness & Health

A difficult aspect of personal training and fitness is maximizing the recovery period after a workout. Strenuous work outs break down muscles. Afterwards, you can experience inflammation or even pain. You’ve likely felt sore after a max out session at the weight bench, especially the next day. This is where CBD comes in: Cannabidiol has numerous anti-inflammatory properties that help with recovery and relieve the normal aches and pains associated with working out. 

“Incorporating Papa & Barkley products into teaching has helped so much because I use it for recovery. I teach early in the morning and late at night so when I’m super-hyped at night its hard for me to fall asleep… it has helped incorporating it into my schedule.”

“Papa and Barkley’s recovery drops assist with my muscle inflammation and joint pain. When training with intensity our body needs to be well recovered. Since I started taking these drops, I never have to think about lingering aches and pains during training or throughout my day. P&B CBD has quickly become part of my nightly routine.”

A little more about Cavan:

“I was not happy with who I had become so I made a decision to change. One meal, one workout after the next. Left foot, right foot. There were great days and there were tough days. It wasn’t a straight line and it wasn’t easy, but it was definitely worth it. Fast forward to today and I could not be happier with where I’m heading. I love where I am, but I believe the best is yet to come. I love that I have the opportunity to help and train others in nutrition and in fitness. I love that I get to push my body beyond its limits. I love that I get spend the rest of my life with my best friend, Lindsay, and my little Australian Sheppard, Kilo. We get one chance at this thing and I’m just getting started.”
