  1. The problem with CBD oil is it isn't tested or regulated, so there is a good chance there is no CBD in the oil you are buying. Further more it may actually be contaminated with THC; the component that gets you high.

  2. CBD oil is NOT legal in all 50 states. With the recent Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD is legal federally, but as usual states have the ability to regulate. Some still do not allow it or haven't caught up with federal law yet..

    I just listened to the Trail Runner Nation podcast from last week on this topic and it is very well-researched – I suggest giving it a listen for a deeper, more accurate dive.

  3. Blimey, I was just looking at whether to buy some of this stuff this this week! Thank you so much Elizabeth. It really does sound like it will help me in my winter "get my running back on track" season over the Christmas break. Thank you again for all of your tips and videos, hopefully this will help my sleep too.

  4. CBD is basically garbage without the THC. CBD and THC work together. For either of them to have any actual benefits they need to be combined. Its the entourage affect. I run 50+ miles every week and I fully use cannabis. THC+CBD Edibles, and a strong indica to vape after a long run to cool the muscles.

  5. I put some in my protein shakes after workouts and it makes a big difference in recovery time. I got my roommate to use it as well and says it helps him ton as well.

  6. How do you think this best fits in an overall fitness and health maintenance regimen? I think it might be easy to view it as a panacea for a myriad of symptoms. Hemp related products have, after all, only recently been legalized and I'd be concerned about long-term effects. What does the research suggest for long-term impacts?

  7. But fr personally im a 4:30 miler, 9:50 2 miler, and 16:00 5k, and i used cbd during my most recent collegiate season and it honestly helps so much with muscle soreness and recovery! In addition to that it helped me sleep and a 2 hour nap felt like i got a full night's sleep, so highly recommended on my part
