If any sector has jumped on the CBD train, it’s the wellness community. CBD skin-care products, pills made for pain and soreness, and oils for anxiety are all readily available, and virtually always in the name of wellness.
Although the Food and Drug Administration still doesn’t want CBD considered an official medication, many users buy and use the hemp extract as part of their own health-care routines. Now, personal trainers, chiropractors and even tai chi instructors are starting to incorporate CBD gel capsules and edible oils into their programs, according to Sue Kartheiser. A personal trainer for nearly two decades, Kartheiser leads a program with Boulder-based Mandara in hopes of teaching other wellness coaches about CBD’s impact on health-focused lifestyles.
