Why I use CBD in my protein shakes
As I said above, I make this shake every time before leaving for a yoga class. I always make sure to add CBD to it as taking CBD oil before my classes has become my routine! CBD, or cannabidiol, works directly with the nervous system as a natural relaxant. Working with the mind and body, it has improved my practice significantly. Yoga by itself has been my escape for many years. I’ve been able to find a space within my practice for patience, mindfulness, and peace. Adding CBD to this already calming and centering practice has done wonders for me! CBD is a great addition to any sports or activity.
I used Green Cuisine CBD’s Isolate Drops in my shake as they don’t have any taste and therefore don’t affect the chocolatey goodness in my cup! They also offer high percentages of CBD which I really like. It is such an easy and effective way to boost the beneficial value of my protein shakes!
I hope you enjoy this shake as much as I do. Until next time!
