Bespoke Recovery: The Best CBD for After A Workout
08 Dec 2020-
Whether it’s hitting a PR at the gym or grabbing gold on the field, getting to the top isn’t easy. It takes energy, dedication, and perseverance. Bespoke Recovery is designed to support you on your journey so you can keep going strong, conquer challenges with confidence, and crush your goals.
We crafted two citrus-flavored tinctures specifically for extraordinarily active people: Bespoke Recovery specifically designed for men and Bespoke Recovery crafted for a woman’s body.
Both formulas consist of high-quality handpicked ingredients, including full-spectrum CBD and CBG distillate, known for their ability to help the body maintain a healthy inflammatory response. Each also includes Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP) Terpene, another powerful anti-inflammatory agent, vitamin E, medium-chain triglycerides, and orange oil.
Why Full-Spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD, also known as full-spectrum hemp, contains most or all of the known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. While the most predominant cannabinoid is CBD (cannabidiol), it also includes CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin). Each cannabinoid, of which there is at least 100 total, has distinct beneficial properties.
CBD isolate products, which contain CBD alone, can also provide therapeutic benefits. However, research shows cannabinoids are most effective when rolling with their squad instead of flying solo. Think of it this way: As much as we love Beyonce, Destiny’s Child just wouldn’t have been the same without Kelly and Michelle on board.
While more research is needed to understand how cannabinoids work together and in the body, the phenomenon, known as the entourage effect, is well-documented and widely known within the scientific and health communities.
CBG is an antibacterial agent and up-and-coming cannabinoid. While it’s not as well-known as CBD and THC, it is no less critical. It works similarly to CBD, interacting with the nervous and endocrine systems. It is best known for its ability to help the body maintain balanced inflammatory and pain responses, a stable sleep cycle, and healthy joints and muscles, all of which are crucial for athletes, fitness fanatics, yogis, and anyone else who’s always pushing their body to the limit.
Full-spectrum CBD already contains CBG. But we’ve added CBG distillate to our Recovery line to provide the extra inflammatory support athletes need for a smooth post-workout recovery to minimize downtime.
Why all the emphasis on inflammation? This immune system response is well-intended, designed to protect injured and vulnerable areas from further harm. However, in some cases, it can go into overdrive and do more harm than good. Think of it this way: if your body is a machine, inflammation is a wrench in the gears. This is particularly true for athletes. An increasing body of research suggests DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) may be linked to inflammation. Inflammation also goes hand-in-hand with pain. While many of us wear pain like a badge of honor after a strenuous workout, it, too, can be more detrimental than beneficial, especially if it’s keeping you out of the gym.
What About BCP Terpene?
BCP (beta-caryophyllene) is one of the more than 100 terpenes found in the cannabis plant. Like cannabinoids, terpenes have distinct health benefits.
Different strains of cannabis have different terpene contents, which affect the flavor and aroma. A strain that smells like citrus, for instance, probably contains the terpene Limonene, while those that smell of lavender likely have linalool. BCP has a smell similar to that of cracked black pepper.
BCP is unique because it’s the only terpene we know of that behaves similarly to a cannabinoid. It interacts with the ECS (endocannabinoid system) and binds with CB2 receptors. Among other benefits, it can help the body maintain a healthy inflammatory response and cholesterol levels and a balanced emotional state. Along with the various cannabinoids and fellow terpenes, it’s there to support you in staying on top of your game and in optimal health.
What Are the Benefits of Orange Oil?
Orange oil is extracted from the orange peel. Along with all-natural vegan lemon flavor, it gives Bespoke Recovery its light, sweet, and refreshing citrus flavor. But it also has antimicrobial properties and may support a stable inflammatory and stress response, among other perks.
How to Use Bespoke Recovery
The Bespoke Recovery tinctures are the perfect addition to your post-workout regimen.
You can administer it sublingually (under the tongue), holding it for about 30 seconds before swallowing. You can also add it to water, tea, a smoothie, or juice.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to CBD, so you may need to experiment a bit to find the perfect dose, especially if this is your first time trying it. But as a rule of thumb, we recommend starting small with a single dose and increasing the dosage by 10mg as needed. Try keeping a journal to see how you feel day by day before you take your dose and after. This will help you decide if you might benefit from changing things up.
Each bottle contains 30 x 66mg doses. One dose is one dropper full. You can also split the amount into two.
We suggest taking one dose a day after (or with) food. You can take it after the gym or in the morning, or even at night, whatever fits best with your routine. What’s really important is consistently taking a dose every day to establish a cumulative effect.
