At MTN CBD, we understand that CBD may benefit a variety of individuals, all with different lifestyles. One of the ways we’ve found that many people enjoy taking CBD is when going out on the trails, hiking, doing yoga, or just enjoying the outdoors! We’re going to take a look at 4 outdoor activities that CBD may help enhance your experience with.

4 Outdoor Activities CBD Can Enhance

1. Hiking 

Hiking is a challenging, yet rewarding outdoor activity that can help lower stress levels and promote healthy exercise. But the main reason going for long, serene hikes is beneficial for you? It gets your blood pumping and jumpstarts your circulatory system, promoting healthy exercise. So, what’s the deal behind so many hikers turning to CBD to enhance the outdoor activity? Because, not only does CBD help also improve your circulation, but it provides neuroprotection and supports healthy respiratory functioning as you hike. If you’re hiking in high altitudes, the low consumption of oxygen can have damaging effects on your brain. However, because CBD has neuroprotective properties, it may be able to protect your brain from the low oxygen levels. CBD and hikes also give your brain a boost of dopamine, allowing you to better enjoy the beautiful scenes all around you and enhancing your outdoor activity.

2. Yoga

CBD and yoga? Many CBD users report feeling focused and more intuitive when consuming CBD. Because of this, researchers believe there may be a connection between the endocannabinoid system and human consciousness. Meditation and yoga also go hand-in-hand. CBD may enhance your experience on the mat by enhancing the meditation aspect of yoga, further clearing overthinking and reducing anxiety. Therefore, CBD may promote a better mood, deeper relaxation, and reduced muscle tension as you practice yoga

3. Camping

Ah yes, camping, the classic outdoor activity loved by the masses and a big favorite of ours too! Whether you’re a tried and true, bare bones camper- living off the earth and foraging for your food and basic nutrients …. OR if you prefer the fairly more common “glamping” and taking full advantage of outdoor amenities but still waking up to the fresh scent of due on the ground and getting a fire going to start breakfast. Camping is a staple when it comes to outdoor activities. There will always be benefits to getting outdoors and out of your normal everyday routine – but what if we told you that CBD could help extend them? Maybe you’re stuck thinking about emails or calls back at the office while trying to enjoy an outdoor activity with friends or family – CBD has been shown to help calm your mind. Or perhaps you struggle with allergies when you change your location and sleep away from your cushioned mattress – CBD has helped many people tame their allergy symptoms. Speaking of your mattress, many struggle to get quality sleep when out of their home. Hotels or campgrounds- sleep can feel unobtainable for a wide range of people. CBD has been shown to help people more naturally ease to sleep- we personally recommend trying it with your hammock!

4. Rock Climbing

One of the more extreme physical endeavors when it comes to an outdoor activity, rock climbing is a great way to test your strength, coordination, and overall aerobic capacity. Along with this, however, is the fatigue and inflammation that comes with sustained time under tension. Time under tension refers to the amount of time a muscle is held under tension or strain during an exercise set. The idea is that this forces your muscles to work harder and optimizes muscular strength, endurance, and growth. And with any type of workout or sustained efforts, there is going to be inflammation at some point while rock climbing but certainly after as well! A great way to help your body heal, naturally is to take CBD. Available in many forms, CBD is a great way to lessen the pain you feel after a longer outdoor activity. Here are some of the other benefits that CBD has for Rock Climbing:.

  • Boost of energy
  • Actively relieve muscle soreness
  • Pain management if any accidents occur
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Keep mind clear (lowers stress levels)

Best Ways of Taking CBD to Enhance Your Outdoor Activity

Tinctures

Tinctures are a quick way to consume CBD. As you consume the CBD oil orally, it gets ingested and into the bloodstream quicker than other methods. Tinctures are a popular way to consume CBD for any outdoor activity. You can add a couple of drops into your morning coffee if you’re out camping, on the yoga mat, or about to head out on an outdoor adventure rock climbing or hiking. The heat from your morning coffee will help induce the CBD into your body sooner and you’ll experience the effects quicker. Try our tasty peppermint-flavored tincture! It’s made from organic hemp seed and grape seed oils and is vegan-friendly.

CBD Edibles

Edibles are the perfect tasty treat for the trails. They come in compact packages that you can carry with in your backpack, purse, or fanny pack. Some CBD users complain about the taste of CBD. However, masked by delicious, fruity flavors like watermelon and green apple, it’s no surprise that many people prefer edibles over other CBD products. Try our watermelon-flavored hard candies, perfect for any outdoor activity! They will have your mouth watering.

Topicals

Topicals are typically used for pre- outdoor activity warm up or post- outdoor activity recovery. CBD topicals bind to receptors underneath the skin, allowing for localized relief. Thus, why many people turn to CBD topicals for easy application and all day comfort. Plus, the soothing scents of the lotions also help with stress relief. Try our blood orange scented topical lotion. Naturally scented with the terpenes of blood oranges, it’s infused with full-spectrum CBD oil and perfect for pain relief or relief from muscle tension.
