Finding calmness in daily activities has been the focus for people around the world since the beginning of time, but recently the yearn for reconnecting with our bodies in the moment has been detrimental to the mental health of individuals across the nation. People are searching for a way to unplug, and yoga combined with CBD can be that outlet.

Various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation.Studies show that yoga practices can reduce exaggerated stress responses and may be helpful for anxiety and depression.
CBD or cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance that comes from the hemp plant. Cannabidiol interacts with the endocannabinoid system. Since the endocannabinoid system aids many different areas of the body, CBD’s use can benefit different areas like cognitive and biological issues that help with stress and anxiety-related conditions.
CBD has terpenes, Linalool, which helps with stress reduction & discomfort. This option would be great for a deep meditation during a yoga sequence. Different types of terpenes aid different things.
- Myrcene (reduce muscle tension & healthy inflammation)
- Pinene (alertness & memory retention).
Both will result in a more intentional yoga session by focusing during the session and recovery after the session.
