Improving Muscle Strength with Hemp Protein

Whether you’re trying to break a new record at the gym or you just want to improve your physique, you’ve come to the right place. There are plenty of reasons why people want to improve their muscle strength with CBD hemp protein, and we’re here to tell you that there’s more to it than that! Getting stronger is partially about your routine, partially about how you lift, and partially about what you consume. Let’s dive into the benefits of hemp protein for muscle growth, and how it fits into a healthy, consistent lifestyle.

Understanding the Benefits of Hemp Protein Powder

Gym rats and gym newbies alike can recite the rules for gaining muscle in their sleep: lift heavy, recover, and eat enough protein. But that last one can be a serious challenge if you’re not the type to pound back unseasoned chicken and drink raw eggs. You may be wondering how to get enough protein into your daily diet to allow your muscles to repair themselves, and grow. Luckily, there’s hemp protein powder by Fusion CBD. Keep reading to discover the benefits of hemp protein for muscle growth.

Hemp Protein Doesn’t Contain THC

That’s right—hemp protein won’t get you high. Although hemp protein comes from the cannabis plant, it doesn’t contain any tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which means it has no psychoactive components.

Hemp powder is primarily made from the ground up seeds of the hemp plant. Though it’s a recent staple of the workout and fitness scene, don’t be fooled— this humble, sustainable plant has actually been a staple of the human diet for centuries!

It’s a Great Complement to a Plant-Based Diet

Protein and plant-based diets have generated their fair share of controversy, and not without reason: without the proper education, getting enough protein while eating a plant-based diet can be a real challenge.

The twist? This isn’t actually the case. There are many great sources of plant based protein available, including chia, nutritional yeast, beans, lentils and
quinoa—but sometimes, the portions necessary to get the recommended amounts of protein are difficult to manage. In these cases, a vegan protein powder can be a fantastic, easy addition to the diet to top up your protein
intake. If you’re wondering what exactly that intake should be, check out this article on optimal protein intake to build muscle.

It’s Easy to Incorporate in Different Recipes

Even the most delicious protein powder—like Fusion’s naturally-flavoured vanilla hemp powder—can get a bit routine. Luckily, protein powder is easy to incorporate in plenty of different recipes, so whether you’re whipping up a shake to take on the go or you want your cakes, oatmeal or pastries to pack a little more nutritional punch, French-Vanilla Hemp powder is a great option.

Hemp Protein for Muscle Healing and Growth

French Vanilla Hemp powder isn’t just a great source of protein. Hemp is also a rich source of healthy fats, fiber, and all nine amino acids. These are all important ingredients in maintaining overall health, but amino acids are particularly important for repairing muscles.

The other key to repairing muscles? It may surprise you, but it’s actually rest. If you’ve just started working out, you may be tempted to try and lift every single day in the hopes of building muscle faster. Unfortunately, this well-intentioned approach can do more harm than good.

In order to grow, your muscles have to take the time to repair themselves. According to Harvard Health Publishing, this means resting for a minimum of 48 hours between workouts. This doesn’t mean you can’t work out during that time, but it’s a good idea to train different muscle groups on those days, or just engage in a different workout activity altogether.

Hemp and CBD for Workouts Go Hand in Hand

Hemp isn’t the only non-psychoactive derivative of cannabis, and it’s not the only one that can help you in your workout recovery and muscle growth. CBD can be an excellent way to help your body recover from soreness after a workout, and like hemp protein powder, it’s versatile: CBD comes in gummies, oils, capsules, tinctures and even creams. CBD (or cannabidiol) is an anti inflammatory that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help relieve anxiety and soreness.

If you’re looking to incorporate CBD or hemp into your workouts, you could consider Fusion’s Pure CBD Capsules for muscle and joint relief; with 22 mg of
CBD per serving, these capsules also deliver the soothing qualities of turmeric and ginger root, giving you an efficient and portable form of soothing relief. If you want to speed recovery and target discomfort at its source, you could try out our Cold/Hot CBD + CBG Spray, a quick-penetrating and soothing spray for helping you get a good night’s rest between workouts.
