CBD oil has taken the UK by storm and is now infused in all manner of things from food & drinks to luxury skincare products and now, thanks to Gymbox, a well known London gym chain, it even has its own workout class!
Gymbox has a wide range of unique classes combining exercise with pleasure and in keeping with their early trendsetting ways, they now have a new Cannabliss class.
Cannabliss is a stretching exercise class that combines yoga-like poses together with meditation and that well-known cannabinoid CBD.
These qualities make it an excellent addition to Cannabliss and to any exercise lovers who need relief from the Delayed Onset Of Muscle Soreness.
At the start of the session, you are invited to take a CBD patch and place it on your arm or any part of your body that is giving you trouble. Transdermal CBD patches work by interacting with receptors in your skin targeting both the site of application as well as entering the bloodstream.
The class itself is designed in particular for office workers who live a mostly sedentary lifestyle as it helps them stretch out, increase mobility, and relieve those aches and pains.
Gymbox created this class as that they saw both how CBD with its medicinal potential had become a hot trend in the UK and how its potential benefits tied in with exactly what gym-goers wanted and badly needed.
The class space has a calming green-mood lighting with a knowledgeable instructor who is kind but also gives just the right amount of nudging to make sure you do what you came to do.
The stretching involves using a massage ball placed under the glutes or shoulder blades and leaning in hard to stretch every limb so that when you leave you feel revitalised, flexible and strong.
Gymflex have 11 gyms located throughout London but for anyone living elsewhere, you will be glad to know that CBD is available in pharmacies throughout the UK as well as online in shops such as CBDVillage.co.uk.
