CBD & Yoga: The Perfect Match for Finding Zen & Balance

CBD & Yoga: The Perfect Match for Finding Zen & Balance

Today, we delve into the remarkable synergy between CBD and yoga, a pairing that can elevate your practice and enhance overall well-being.

Yoga offers the ultimate opportunity to connect with our bodies, providing a sacred space for self-discovery, relaxation, and inner peace. However, if you find it challenging to fully unwind during a yoga session, incorporating CBD may help you relax and immerse yourself more deeply in the practice.

The History of Yoga and Cannabis

Originating in northern India, where marijuana was regarded as sacred, yoga practitioners used it to deepen their spiritual connection and find inner peace. These spiritual practices continue to this day but while getting high at your local yoga studio may not be feasible due to legal restrictions, CBD offers a practical alternative.

CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant. It offers a range of potential benefits and, unlike THC, does not produce any mind-altering effects. This makes CBD legal, safe, and accessible for most individuals.

When used consistently, CBD can provide remarkable benefits and is a valuable tool on your journey to achieving harmony and inner peace. It serves as a bridge between ancient traditions and modern wellness, allowing you to experience the profound synergy of yoga and cannabis.

How CBD can enrich your yoga practice


CBD encourages mindfulness in your self-care routine. By checking in with your body and observing how CBD makes you feel, you can determine the right dosage for you. This self-awareness translates to the yoga mat, helping you connect with your breath, and movement, and develop a deeper understanding of your body.

Inner Peace

Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD may help to promote a deeper sense of calm, allowing you to feel more at ease in group settings. While not a cure or treatment for anxiety, CBD can help you tap into a more relaxed state of mind, allowing you to focus on your own journey without the weight of self-consciousness.


CBD supports the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a crucial role in maintaining balance throughout the body. Incorporating CBD into your yoga practice aligns with your journey towards improved wellness, as both CBD and yoga promote physical and emotional equilibrium. When we talk about balance, it’s more like your sense of inner balance. The endocannabinoid system is awakened when CBD is taken, and it plays an essential role in maintaining homeostasis (or balance) throughout the body.  So you could say that CBD is the recipe for perfect internal harmony.

Combining CBD & Yoga

If you’re planning on using CBD to enrich your yoga practice, we recommend adding it to your daily routine rather than simply using it before you hit the mat. 

CBD works best when used consistently so whether you add a few drops of CBD Oil to your morning coffee or a couple of CBD Capsules before bedtime, establishing a consistent routine can maximise the benefits for yoga and beyond. This is because CBD is best used consistently to support the endocannabinoid system. Why? Well, think of it like this: if your iron levels were low and you were advised by a medical professional to start supplementing with iron, you wouldn't just take 1 tablet and your iron levels would be back up to the right level permanently, you would need to take daily supplementation to reach the desired level and then maintain it, and it’s the same concept with CBD. Taking it just once isn't enough to reap the benefits of this wonderful plant compound. Taking it daily and consistently is the best way to ensure the right level builds up in your body. It can take up to 3 weeks to feel the effects, so be patient and persistent with your daily dosing.  

However, for those looking for a quick burst of hemp-fuelled goodness before yoga class, CBD gummies can be a convenient choice. Our delicious 600mg Jelly Domes offer an easy and discreet way to enjoy the benefits of CBD while on the go.

So, as you step onto your yoga mat today, consider adding CBD to your routine as a combined, holistic solution to improved wellbeing. Allow it to be your ally in finding tranquillity and deepening your connection with your mind, body and spirit.
