Have you ever thought about what a CBD-inspired yoga routine involves? Combining cannabis and yoga isn’t anything new. There’s actually an ancient connection between the two. Cannabis is referred to in the Vedas (sacred Hindu spiritual texts) as one of the five sacred plants, where it is said that a guardian angel lives within its leaves.
According to the Vedas, cannabis is a source of happiness, a substance that offers joy and something that was compassionately given to humans to help liberate them from worry and fear.
Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means to “unite” or “to be made whole.” Like cannabis, it can be used to liberate the mind from worry and fear. Yoga is the ultimate liberation, allowing us to unite with the limitless potential we all contain.
Yoga is a practice that invites us to center our energy through pranayama (breathwork) and asana (postures) and is wildly beneficial for body, mind and soul. It promotes relaxation while building strength and offers inspiration to live more mindfully in our everyday lives.
There’s a reason yoga has become so popular in Western society over the past couple of decades. It’s amazing for reducing stress, anxiety and depression — things far too many people experience on a day-to-day basis in our modern, fast-paced society.
CBD is an awesome complement to yoga. This non-psychoactive cannabinoid has shown to have an astounding effect on our endocannabinoid system, helping to promote a calm mind and bring balance to the body.
What happens when you combine yoga and CBD together? We’d like to think it’s nothing short of magic.
While CBD won’t get you high, it’s incredible for helping you relax. Combine that with a gentle yoga routine that inspires you to do the same, and you’ve got something that has the potential to make you feel really, really good.
Aside from the amazing benefits the combination of CBD and yoga have for promoting tranquility, the physical benefits of the two together are unprecedented. CBD can help support healthy joints and muscles, just like yoga. Additionally, yoga and CBD can both help you recover after a workout.
