Incorporating CBD oil into your customer’s training sessions can be an innovative way to make their trip to the gym more effective and, ultimately, more enjoyable. Additionally, CBD oil products can help your customers recover between sessions and maintain their overall wellness.
Give your customers the top of the line CBD they’ve been talking about with HempMeds® CBD oil. Learn more about how to add these products to your gym and how they can benefit your customers below.
What is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most exciting restorative compounds available today, and athletes, weekend warriors, and those looking to maintain their wellness are discovering the many benefits it can provide them.
CBD is a cannabinoid, a class of over 100 chemical compounds present in the cannabis plant, including marijuana and hemp. Found in the cannabis plant’s flowers, seeds, and stalks, CBD can be extracted from the plant as part of its cannabis oil.
This oil can then be processed into a number of CBD products that can be used to boost the body’s ability to maintain balance, even when pushed to its limits. When CBD oil is extracted from low-THC hemp, the resulting products are non-psychoactive and safe to use by everyone, even competing athletes.
How Can My Customers Use CBD in Their Workout Routine?
CBD oil products can be given to your gym’s customers to help them achieve wellbeing by promoting proper sleep, appetite, metabolism, immune response, and more.
When CBD oil products are used, plant-based cannabinoids or phytocannabinoids like CBD are absorbed by the body where they make their way to the bloodstream and are transported throughout the body to interact with special cannabinoid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
The neural communication network that uses these cannabinoid receptors, known as the endocannabinoid system, plays a critical role in the nervous system’s normal functioning. Endocannabinoids such as anandamide and 2-AG function as neurotransmitters, sending chemical messages between nerve cells throughout the nervous system.
Phytocannabinoids mimic the roles of the body’s endogenous (naturally-occurring) cannabinoids like anandamide and 2-AG. CBD and THC’s chemical structures are similar to those of 2-AG and anandamide, allowing us to use them to manipulate the endocannabinoid system to achieve beneficial effects in the body.
HempMeds® distributes its line of hemp-derived CBD oil products while following all Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. Because of this, we are unable to make specific medical claims about products and instead encourage you to research CBD oil’s many effects for yourself.
CBD oil products come in a variety of consumption types, such as capsules, tinctures, topical salves, vaporizers, pure hemp oil oral applicators, and more, giving your customers a choice in how to get their daily CBD. These daily use products provide all the benefits of CBD with none of the worry over THC present in other medical marijuana products.
CBD Oil Products from HempMeds®
Our CBD oil products cover a wide range of consumption methods, concentrations, and price points, fitting the many different needs of your patients. Whether you are looking to provide a topical application for focused effects, an adjunct to prescription medication, or use a serving daily to improve well-being, HempMeds® carries the safe and effective CBD oil products your customers want.
Pure CBD Hemp Oils:
Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) is our CBD hemp oil in its most unadulterated form. A thick, viscous oil, RSHO™ contains high levels of CBD, up to 120 mg, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other trace cannabinoids. Perfect for those looking for the highest concentration of CBD in their product, these products allow users to quickly load up on CBD in their system.
RSHO™ is available in 3 labels (Green, Blue, and Gold) and provides a high-CBD hemp oil product with minimal processing. Learn more about the differences between RSHO™ Green, Blue, and Gold Labels here.
While our RSHO™ pure hemp oil is our most potent products, our tinctures are our least potent. Made with the same hemp oil as our other products, our tinctures are mixed with vegetable glycerine or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil to give them a thinner consistency and lower overall strength between 1 mg and 10.5 mg per serving. Low potency products like tinctures help users maintain a constant level of CBD in their system all day long.
RSHO™, Dixie Botanicals®, and Cibdex® all feature tinctures in their brand. While RSHO™ tinctures are unflavored, Dixie Botanicals® and Cibdex® offer all-natural flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint, in addition to an unflavored option.
Our RSHO™ brand also carries a line of liquid products. RSHO™ Liquid is made by combining our pure hemp oil with MCT oil for a mid-potency product that combines the benefits of pure RSHO™ hemp oil with the ease and portability of tinctures.
Because RSHO™ Liquid is made using coconut oil, it can easily be added to your pre- or post-workout smoothie or shake as an essential part of your routine. It can also be taken on a spoon and swished in the mouth before swallowing. Read our guide to creative ways to enjoy your RSHO™ Liquid here, or come up with your own favorite method to take RSHO™ Liquid.
Several of our brands (RSHO™ and Cibdex®) also offer our CBD hemp oil in capsule form for unrivaled ease and portability. It is easy to slip these hemp oil capsules in among your daily vitamins without much change to your day.
For customers with a preference, RSHO™ capsules come in Green, Blue, and Gold Labels, contain 25 mg of CBD each, and are combined with 200 mg of calcium and 200 mg of our proprietary blend of powdered turmeric root and white willow bark for added botanical effects. Cibdex® also offers similar 25 mg CBD capsules, but without the turmeric root or white willow bark.
RSHO™ CBD Isolate:
At 99% purity, RSHO™ CBD Isolate is the most potent CBD product available on the market. Found here in its pure crystalline form, CBD isolate is a fine white powder containing only the CBD chemical compound. CBD isolate is an all-natural product, extracted from the hemp plant and refined down to an incredible purity.
When consumed off a specially-equipped vape pen, CBD isolate can be vaped, allowing the user to inhale the pure CBD vapor. CBD isolate can also be dissolved into vape liquids for a CBD infused-vape.
For oral consumption, RSHO™ CBD Isolate is easily consumed as is, mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil, or blended into smoothies or other foods and beverages.
Designed for external use, CBD hemp oil topicals are a popular option among athletes. Massaged into tired muscles and joints, CBD topicals are absorbed into the skin for localized benefits and never make it into the bloodstream.
RSHO™ CBD hemp oil salve and Dixie Botanicals® Hemp oil Salvation Balm offer 50 mg of CBD per jar. These topicals combine full-spectrum hemp oil with ingredients like beeswax, camphora essential oils, and cedarwood and lavender oils to revitalize after a tough workout.
Is CBD Safe for My Customers?
CBD is considered to be safe and non-toxic for humans, even at high amounts. A research paper titled Safety and side effects of cannabidiol explored this subject.
To further ensure the safety of our products, we extract our oil using safe supercritical CO2. We examine our oil at three points in our manufacturing process as part of our Triple Lab Tested™ standard to ensure consistency and protect our end users from any potential contamination.
Once our hemp oil is certified to be safe, our formulators in San Diego infuse our oil into our complete line of CBD hemp oil products.
