Hemp Extract and a Healthy Lifestyle
Disclaimer: I was sent one bottle of CW Botanicals about Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Extract for review as well as monetary compensation in exchange for this post. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Lately I have been thinking all about the best ways to recover after a big race or a monster workout (20 milers, Brick workouts). Right now as I sit here my legs are feeling the soreness of my long run yesterday. My quads are screaming and I feel tired walking upstairs. Recovering well from strenuous activity is an important part of being an athlete so that you can maintain your desired level of activity and continue to move forward in your training.
There are many different things that you can do to aid in recovery after pushing your body hard. As an endurance sports athlete (triathlete and runner) I am always looking things that I can do so that I can perform my very best. Recently I was contacted by CW Botanicals about trying their Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Extract. I have never tried hemp extract before but love Hemp Hearts and frequently add them into smoothies and into my morning oatmeal. I have always loved Hemp Hearts because they are a Superfood containing Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids as well as high levels of protein all. Now, I was curious to learn more about CW Botanicals and how their Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Extract can help me to recover and aid in my active lifestyle as a runner and triathlete.

My experience with CW Botanicals Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Extract.
I was sent one 11 oz. bottle of CW Botanicals about Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Extract. The flavor I was sent is Mint Chocolate which you could smell even before opening the bottle and I must say it smells delicious! The minty taste is strong and reminds me of my favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream.
I typically like to keep things pretty basic with my eating before I head out for a workout so as not to upset my stomach so I have tried CW Botanicals Charlotte’s WebTM Hemp Oil after my workouts. I have simply been adding this hemp oil into milk after workouts as well as chocolate and vanilla smoothies because the taste is very strong. I haven’t been using this product for too long as I didn’t want to try anything new before my Half Ironman so I will keep you posted as to my thoughts about whether or not I feel any added positive effects on post workout recovery. I do like this product because it is clean tasting. If you do not like mint flavored this product also comes in unflavored as well. This would be great for adding into other flavors of smoothies and into your breakfast oatmeal and more.
