Thru-Hiking with CBD
Thru-Hiking With CBD

by, Tracey Roizman, DC

Thru-hiking is a rigorous sport that offers as many challenges as rewards. When you are in the most remote areas on the trail the equipment and supplies on your back are all you have to get you safely through. For this reason, good planning and smart packing are the first steps to successful thru-hiking. Where health and first aid supplies are concerned, CBD offers a great variety of health benefits; possibly more than any other single supplement, making it a thru hiker’s best trail buddy ever.

Energy and Endurance

CBD can help your body keep up with the physical demands so you get the most out of every rugged day on the trail. CBD improves endurance by supporting healthy heart and respiratory function. If your hike includes high-elevation climbs CBD may help you adapt by improving circulation while protecting your brain during the transition to low oxygen levels at those high altitudes. And, if you love to hike but suffer with exercise induced asthma or are allergic to pollens or airborne particles, CBD has been shown to help the allergy-prone breathe easier by reducing airway inflammation.  

Pain Relief

Scrapes, bumps and bruises, twisted knees and ankles, bee stings and bug bites. It’s all part of the hiking life. And it’s also how you earn some of your bragging rights as thru-hiker! CBD can help extinguish aches and pains of all sorts. In fact, pain relief is one of the main reasons many people use CBD. Studies indicate that CBD works by blocking pain messages and preventing them from reaching the brain. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects that can help reduce minor swelling and put you quickly on the path to healing.
