If you lead an active lifestyle, or are looking for an energy boost – a good balance of supplements can help you along your journey. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has been linked with regulating sleep patterns whilst Vitamin C has been proven to reduce tiredness and fatigue especially, after exercise.
As far as how the cannabinoid CBD may affect sleep, some research indicates that this may interact with specific receptors, potentially affecting the sleep/wake cycle and helping you to achieve a longer, deeper sleep. Additionally, CBD will not make you drowsy as some suspect.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has many receptors throughout the body and by supporting your ECS with a regular supplement of CBD, you may help to manage some of the symptoms of stress. By also supporting your gut brain axis with the addition of a Biotic, you can help to maintain a healthy gut biome, something which is often affected by prolonged periods of stress and anxiety.
Studies suggest the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) may help to regulate inflammation and pain response in the body and due to the way that CBD interacts with your ECS, you may find that incorporating CBD into your lifestyle could have an impact on the inflammation often associated with injury.

CBD Topical FAQ's
Will CBD topicals get me high?
No, CBD products do not get you high. As CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, people often wrongly assume products that include it will make you feel high. However, it is the THC component of the cannabis plant that gives you a euphoric feeling of being high which is why it is strictly regulated in the UK and may often see some products claim to be “THC Free”. On the other hand the CBD component actually helps your body’s regulating system to keep it balanced.

Will CBD topicals show up on a drug test?
Our CBD Thermal Joint Gel and CBD Muscle Rub are BSCG Tested which guarantees they are free from banned substances, so you don’t have to worry about testing positive on an anti-doping test. Regular drug tests are designed to detect the presence of THC but our CBD Topicals are made with CBD Isolate, meaning they are THC free.
How much of a CBD topical should I use?
Scientists haven’t yet developed official guidelines for dosing with CBD topicals, but you can determine the right amount through a simple process of experimentation. Just apply a small amount to the affected area, wait for 15-20 minutes, and see how you feel.
Is It Safe to Use CBD Topicals Multiple Times in One Day?
Yes, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has reported that CBD is a non-toxic substance with no potential for addiction or abuse. That means you can apply your CBD topicals as often as needed.
Can I use CBD Topicals if I’m not an athlete?
Yes, CBD Topicals have a lot of different uses and benefits. Besides being great for athletes and people with active lifestyles they are great for day to day use too. Some customers use our CBD Muscle Rub during their menstrual cycle or in small amounts on their temples when suffering with a headache. Our CBD Thermal Joint Gel is popular with mature customers who feel the aches and pain associated with growing older.
