Regular customers might recall that we originally released Nano CBD Softgels along with our Nano CBD Drops. We've since stopped making the Softgels and only offer Nano CBD Drops, but why? While we were proud of the quality of our Nano CBD Softgels, we and some core customers found that we got more from the delivery system used for the Drops -- especially when each dose was held under the tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. Doing so allowed for more complete and faster absorption. While I new much of this before we ever released either product, the real-world effect was greater than I expected.
I love trying really freaking hard. I love digging deep, tapping the last reserves, and emptying the tank as I push my limits physically and mentally on the rock. I pursue climbing as a way of life because I enjoy exploring new places, meeting fellow adventure enthusiasts, and playing in the great outdoors. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Sport Nutrition at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. My goal is to help athletes use nutrition to maximize their health and performance. Through my studies, I have grown aware of the past inadequacy of my own dietary practices as well as the widespread acceptance of an unhealthy approach to food, diet, and weight throughout the climbing community....
I regularly receive questions about how to best incorporate all of our products for maximum effectiveness. While there’s more than one way to do so, based each individual’s situation, I thought I’d give my daily routine as an example.
Getting your nutrition dialed for cross race can be trickier than you might think. Races are relatively short, but they are also incredibly intense. The only thing I've encountered that comes close to their physical intensity are short-track mountain bike races, but even they are not quite as vomit inducing. Sprinting over barriers and up steep hills by foot as commonly encountered during cross races pushes the intensity level through the roof. You need glycogen stores to be at maximum to fuel these and other anaerobic efforts, but you also don't want much food in your stomach come race time. That is, unless you want to be distracted from going your fastest by burping up breakfast. It's not a pleasant feeling.
