According to a 2017 report, physical and mental health are key motivators for travelers seeking adventure travel experiences. Conveniently, those are two huge benefits of CBD. Adventure travel is the concept of vacationing with the purpose of experiencing activities that have an exploration component. These often involve physical activity ranging anywhere from yoga to skydiving and everything in between.
One important part of adventure travel is the specific intention to disconnect from the rest of the world and be in the moment. Being in the moment (mindfulness) requires conscious effort to minimize distraction. Common distractions not only include the digital world, but also internal discomfort and stress.
CBD for Adventure Travel
CBD is a cannabis compound that is taken sublingually, orally or applied topically to support a healthy and active lifestyle. CBD does not induce the negative psychoactive effects of its cousin THC. Taking CBD on your adventure travel excursion can help you relax and may increase physical athletic performance. Here’s how.
The antioxidant properties in CBD oil have the ability to decrease inflammation-causing free radicals in the body. Inflammation can be the result of injury or overuse of muscles. Even sitting on a bicycle or in an airplane for an extended period of time can cause soreness which can hinder your experience. Taking CBD oil on your adventure travel experience can help you keep moving up mountains and across oceans throughout your whole stay.
Topical CBD can also be used to decrease a lot of the aches, pains, bumps, and bruises that may arise on your adventure. Receptra Targeted Topical interacts with cannabinoid receptors right underneath the skin to provide relief.
Depending on the adventure, feeling distracted could have some big consequences. CBD has the potential to make you feel sharper and ready to take on the day. Unlike THC, CBD does not leave you feeling hazy or stoned. This could be important if you are flying down a steep and rocky trail on a mountain bike or hiking along the edge of a cliff. Adventure travel can be unpredictable so it is best to bring your A game!
Being in a new place can cause anxiety and stress. This is especially true if you are also trying something new on your adventure. The endocannabinoid system is known to affect the impact of stress on the brain, which can make for a much more positive response to questionable situations. It’s not so much about what you do feel as it is what you don’t feel. What you probably won’t feel is super stressed out!
When taken in a slightly higher serving, CBD oil can calm the body and mind providing a sense of relaxation. This makes it easier to adapt to a new time zone and find rest. Unlike the cannabis compound THC, CBD will not get you high. The restful state is generated by the interaction of CBD with endocannabinoid receptors throughout the body. Getting a good night’s sleep has amazing benefits, including helping you wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Traveling with CBD
CBD is easy to transport domestically through the majority of airports (not DFW) and can be taken many places internationally as well. Receptra CBD oil can be put in a carry on or checked bag, though checked baggage is not always handled with the most care. Just be aware and take precautions to keep it cushioned. We do advise looking into the legalities of CBD oil possession wherever you are going before traveling with CBD.
