Recovery isn’t just about stretching, “off” days, and easy runs. Recovery, and when your muscles repair themselves, happen when you sleep and rest. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body and muscles can’t recover.
That’s where iKOR comes in! I got to test the CBD Hemp Oil. Here are a few details on the product itself:
I was really intrigued to try this product because it’s an alternative way to recover rather than using other sleep aids or even other anti-inflammatory medications like IBUProfin. iKOR’s primary recovery benefits are:
The company gave us a few suggestions for trying the product. We were told to take it twice a day for 10 days straight. Then take 4 days off, to see how we felt and then go back on it.
I did try it for the 10 days and was surprised how fast it actually worked for me. After a few days, I was already sleeping better. This was the main benefit for me. I was able to fall asleep, and stay asleep, much easier and faster. I also noticed that my legs were not as sore and tired as they normally are when training with the cross country kiddos. When I stopped taking it, I was right back to my normal routine of laying awake for a long time before actually falling asleep. I did NOT actually go back on it for personal reasons (that have nothing to do with the company or product itself) that I would not like to share currently.
Some curious additional “side effects” were I started having very vivid and lucid dreams. This was actually really cool. A lot of the other Bib Rave pros also reported this, so I know I’m not just imagining this.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound found in the Cannabis sativa L plant. CBD is commonly extracted from industrial hemp plants. CBD Oil is not a THC product (THC accounts for the “high” effect that marijuana is known for) and cannot get you high. Hemp products, which CBD oil is derived from, are federally required to have less than 0.3% THC. With iKOR, it’s essentially non-existent. Also, CBD Oil is legal in all 50 states. iKOR is not marijuana, but a dietary supplement made from hemp.
My Recommendation (for what it’s worth):
Remember, I’m not a doctor, but I do think this is a great product for an alternative, natural remedy. Specifically for runners that are looking for a little bit of a boost, iKOR can help reduce inflammation after a hard workout which could replace your go-to IBUProfin. It can also help you sleep better so that your body can repair itself after those long miles. I do have to say, I don’t really like the taste. It starts out fine but you’re supposed to hold it under your tongue for it to absorb and that’s when the sour taste hits. I always chase it with a bunch of water. A lot of the Bib Rave Pro’s didn’t mind the taste or even liked it!
