How Can Yoga and CBD Oil Work Together?

We all know CBD for its medicinal value. But it turns out that CBD is not only there to help you with your ailments; it also works perfectly with yoga. If you are hearing about CBD for the first time, it is the acronym for cannabidiol, one of the more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

In the recent past, people have been embracing CBD oil UK for its amazing health benefits. On the other hand, yoga is an ancient Indian practice that started long back around 3000 BC. It involves exercising your physical, spiritual, and mental wellbeing.

So, how do these two work together, or what is the expected outcome when you pair your yoga practice with CBD oil? Let’s find out.

The Science Behind CBD Oil and Yoga

When you use CBD oil, your skin absorbs and activates your central regulatory system. The central regulatory system is also known as the endocannabinoid system and is responsible for regulating your immune, digestive, and nervous systems. Once CBD enters your system, it binds with the CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the body. It sends signals to the affected part of the body, which serves to desensitize pain at the nerve receptor site. The overall combined effect of using CBD oil in your yoga classes is that it helps your body to achieve a high sense of flexibility by reducing pain, anxiety, inflammation, and stress.

When you vape CBD oil, the lungs absorb it instantly; thus, the effects of CBD kicks in as soon as it reaches the bloodstream. This is the fastest method of consuming CBD since it has a high bioavailability.

How CBD Oil Is Helpful In Yoga

1. CBD Oil Reduces Stress During Yoga

For the regular yoga diehard, going about your daily yoga practice shouldn’t raise any concerns; however, for beginners, this may cause more anxiety than they first thought. Still, if you want to take your yoga practice to a whole new level, CBD comes handy in helping you reduce your stress levels and do the extraordinary with courage.

It’s turning out clear that yogis appreciate the use of CBD oil in their yoga practice. The good thing about CBD oil is that it helps you improve your yoga experience without getting high. The benefits of using CBD oil during yoga have more to do with the common ingredient terpene that carries lots of positive effects. Some forms of terpenes that you can find in CBD include Pinene, Linalool, and Myrcene.

Linalool is responsible for pain and anxiety relief while Myrcene handles muscle tension and also relieves you of inflammation. Pinene keeps you alert and helps you retain your memory. Overall, CBD offers good relief for anxiety sufferers.

2. CBD Oil works as a Pain Reliever

Apart from relieving stress and anxiety, it’s a good pain reliever too. Besides, CBD oil is also a mood booster for your yoga regime. It would be best to add it to your yoga practice as a natural mood booster.

CBD oil contains cannabinoids that react in different ways with the various CBD receptors in your body. The endocannabinoid system hosts these receptors in your body. When CBD comes into contact with your ECS, it triggers it to produce more natural cannabinoids.

The released cannabinoids help to balance your system and reduce inflammatory instances that arise from the various yoga practices, such as performing complicated yoga poses. Research published in 2018 conclusively suggests that CBD is effective, safe to use, and tolerable as a form of treatment against neuropathic pain. And so, using CBD during a yoga routine helps you in alleviating the pain besides managing temporary aches and soreness.

3. CBD Oil Gives You Focus and Concentration

Some yoga practices are fast-paced and call for more concentration as compared to basic yoga poses. One example of this type of yoga is Vinyasa yoga. If your mind is always wandering and you want to have a sharp mental focus, CBD oil can save help you.

In a 2017 study, the findings show that people who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) improved significantly after using CBD. Adding more weight to this claim is a similar study that shows participants improved focus after using CBD. Another study confirms that CBD can enhance your attention span without having any side effects on your body.

The researchers concluded that the continuous use of CBD could have promising therapeutic effects on your body, which ultimately improves your psychological symptoms and cognition.

4. CBD Helps in Regulating Appetite and Weight

CBD is an excellent catalyst for regulating appetite and promoting weight loss. CBD has the opposite effect of THC on your ECS (endocannabinoid). While THC is responsible for promoting hunger, CBD oil helps regulate your appetite.

A study done on rats shows that CBD reduces appetite, which means it can work on humans too. Another research done in 2018 shows that CBD influences your endocannabinoid system to block the functioning of cannabinoid receptors. The receptors help the body in reducing appetite, thus reduce obesity.


The secret to making CBD oil work wonders in your yoga classes is consistency. When the two are consistently combined, they turn out to be potent stress busters, pain relievers, provide mental focus, and general wellbeing.

Consumption of CBD for yoga shouldn’t be a problem because there are many ways of taking it. Manufacturing companies now incorporate CBD into their products, such as oils, cookies, drinks, and gummies. You can also consume CBD through vaping, orally, or topically.

Additionally, most CBD oil products are available online, which makes them more accessible.

If you are not sure of what CBD oil product to use, it’s advisable to consult your physician or research online and basically start on a small dosage and increase as necessary.
