##SPONSORED POST – ALL VIEWS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN##
Over the course of the past month, I’ve been using Receptra Naturals CBD oils, Active and Prime. What is CBD oil and how can it help with muscle recovery and pain? CBD oil is a natural, legal, non-psychoactive concentrate extracted from hemp. Unlike “cannabis oil” (generally referring to high THC oil), CBD hemp oil will not make you feel lethargic or high. Studies, science and endorsements for CBD oil are aplenty (just Google CBD oil). I, myself, knew little about CBD until Receptra Naturals reached out and got educated on the topic of CBD as I began using it.
A little background – I’ve been training and exercising consistently since September of last year. Exercise has given me a new set of energy, sleep and focus. I lift weights two times a week with a personal trainer at Blink Fitness. I also do Muay Thai mixed with High Intensity Training (HIIT is a circuit session with little rest in between sets, sometimes with weights and your own body resistance). To help my muscles lengthen and stretch, I incorporated yoga once a week. Any amount of training I can squeeze with my makeup work schedule, I will do rain, sunshine or snow. All this exercise has been gradual and has increased my metabolism, meaning I am able to burn more calories in one hour sessions. With weight training, Muay Thai and HIIT comes a degree of muscle soreness and needed recovery. This where Receptra Naturals CBD Oils have helped me tremendously.
Typically, I’ll use Receptra Naturals CBD oil in the mornings before I train and at night before I get to bed. CBD oils reduce pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms. Since I started I noticed less pain and am able to work out with more consistency because I am not as sore. I also sleep VERY well, as sleep is a huge part of the recovery and rest for your body (and mind). I’ve been posting my progress of it on my social media with friends asking me about it.
My main goal with all this training is endurance, focus and gradual weight loss, both which I have been achieving (10 lbs so far!). The aspect I was having most trouble with was endurance because initially, I’d be very sore on days after I did weight training. Once I began using both CBD Oils from Receptra Naturals, I noticed a gradual change in my recovery/ muscle soreness levels.
Just to give you an idea about the Receptra Naturals CBD oils and how they differentiate:
Active, Elite, Pro— These differ from the Health and Wellness products in that they also contain walnut oil, avocado seed oil, and Turmeric. These are natural ingredients that improve energy, focus, and endurance. Aside from the variation in formulas, the difference between the Active, Elite, and Pro is in the concentration of CBD.
Active – 15mg of CBD per serving
Elite – 30mg of CBD per serving
Pro – 60mg of CBD per serving
I take Active CBD every morning, one drop usually with my coffee (usually on the days I am going to the gym or do my boxing sessions, which are an hour typically). In the evenings and generally an hour before I retire to sleep, I will use Receptra Prime CBD. I drift to sleep nicely, since all this exercise and CBD oil, I’ve been having the best sleep ever.
Receptra Naturals CBD Oils range from $39.95 – $199.95, sold online. *I started with a low dosage and definitely felt it as time progressed, a few days in.
Also, there is a Receptra Naturals Targeted Topical Ointment made out of CBD Oil, this is for muscle and joint soreness. I’ve used this mostly on my joints, especially my wrists and shoulders where sometimes I feel pain from using weights and boxing gloves. The ointment is 400+mg CBD per container and is scented with a refreshingly soothing smell of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. I have a friend in FL who ordered this Receptra Ointment for her arthritis pain and she has reported great results from using the Targeted Topical.
Receptra Naturals Targeted Topical Ointment retails for $34.95 for 30ml

Here is a snap of me on a Monday before hitting the gym. To give you some perspective, I was over 163 lbs when I started, now I am 152 lbs, definitely hit my pre baby Eva weight (almost three years ago with an active goal of just energy, muscle tone and a healthy lifestyle).
