They Don’t Take Enough CBD
So many of the benefits derived from taking CBD require a dose that sufficiently activates your body’s Endocannabinoid System in proportion to the stress and strain you put on your body.
Don’t Do This
Take standard CBD oil.
Many CBD oils on the market today have an extremely low bioavailability rate. This means that very little (as little as 15%) of the CBD you take actually makes it into your bloodstream where it can make a difference in boosting your performance and speeding up your recovery time.
Take CBD that’s made for high bioavailability.
Venga CBD, because it’s engineered for athletes, wrestled with this problem and implemented a proprietary process to produce water-soluble CBD oil. By choosing water-soluble CBD oil, your body is able to get up to 5X more CBD into your bloodstream.
That “5X more” means you get an 85% bioavailability compared to the typical CBD oil that delivers around 15% — a 500% increase!
Take Venga CBD on an empty stomach!
Most all CBD needs to be taken with food but because Venga is water-soluble you can take it with or without food. We recommend without food for the best absorption.
They Don’t Take CBD Consistently
CBD’s positive results compound over time as it builds up in the body. It’s because of this steady build up over time that it is not uncommon for it to take up to 30 days for results to start to show up.
Don’t Do This
Take CBD occasionally or intermittently.
Make a habit out of taking CBD every day.
To fully enjoy the wide range of benefits CBD can provide, a consistent delivery of CBD is required to sufficiently activate your body’s Endocannabinoid System. CBD is NOT as effective if it’s taken sporadically, one day here, one day there. Just like regular training is needed to perform well in your sport, if you want the results that come from taking CBD, then it must become a daily habit.
By consistently consuming CBD on a daily basis over a 60-day period, you position your body to fully realize its positive compounding effects, which, in turn, will pay dividends when it comes to your training and racing performance.

They Don’t Take CBD for All That It Has to Offer
Each CBD product is like a tool, which is used under a certain set of circumstances to generate specific results. But if you only have one tool, then you’re limited as to what you can accomplish. As anyone who has ever picked up a hammer can tell you, that tool has its limitations, things that it’s not made for or, at the very least, not the best at. And that’s why some genius way back when invented the toolbox.
Don’t Do This
Use just a single CBD product for everything.
Athletes often select a single CBD product and use it for all their needs. Whether they are a runner, cyclist, triathlete, that single product is their “go to.”
They end up missing a number of benefits that CBD can provide by using products that are designed for specific needs.
Use a mix of CBD products to cover all your needs.
It’s essential that you find the right mix of CBD products that will help you crush your goals even when your mind and body might not be in full agreement. To ensure you maximize performance and speed-up recovery, an endurance athlete’s CBD regimen should be a three pronged plan. With this in mind, we figured out how to cover 100% of your CBD needs with just three products.
The Inside Plan
It’s the primary CBD you ingest and, because of its extremely high absorption rate, it serves as the foundational supplement of your CBD regimen. It’s taken daily, sometimes more than once.
Ideal ‘Inside’ Product: water-soluble Venga Ultra Gels, gets up to 5X more CBD into your bloodstream
The Outside Plan
It’s CBD balm applied directly to your sore and aching muscles and joints, both before and after training or a race, aiding you in reducing both pain and inflammation and speeding up recovery.
Ideal ‘Outside’ Product: water-soluble Venga Recovery Balm, applied liberally over the target area in need of soothing, providing fast, deeply penetrating relief that lasts up to 3-4 hours.
The On-the-Go Plan
It’s the gummies that travel well in a pack, pouch or pocket and are designed to give you an extra shot of CBD while you’re on the trail, on your bike, in the gym, or when you’re in the middle of a grueling race or extra-hard training session. Gummies provide that extra boost of CBD you need when you’re really hurting or when your mind or body is thinking about letting you down.
Ideal Product: Venga Aid Station Gummies, designed for 1-2 gummies to be taken on-the-go every 2-3 hours as needed.
Find Your Mix!
CBD has so much to offer and with only a few products you can experiment to find the best mix for your body and needs.
They Only Take CBD for Only One Reason
To restrict yourself to one benefit is leaving ‘endurance’ performance on the table. CBD can help with many areas of your endurance life.
Don’t Do This
Only focus on one area of improvement from CBD.
When you evaluate each aspect of your endurance training regimen, you want to consider all relevant data so that you know what’s working and what’s not. It’s the same with CBD.
But the mistake some athletes make is they ignore or just don’t notice the wide range of CBD-based benefits enhancing their results. Such an omission could cause them to mistakenly undervalue its impact on their performance.
Look for improvement in other, unexpected areas of your endurance life.
Going beyond fighting inflammation and alleviating pain, CBD also provides a myriad of other benefits that you deserve to enjoy. These benefits include such things as:
- Improved sleep quality that allows you to wake refreshed and rejuvenated
- Feeling less sore and fatigued after an intense workout or race
- Faster recovery time so you can get right back out there and do it all over again
- Less anxiety and improved mental focus so you can keep your head in the game
Pay attention to other areas of your life that CBD may be improving.
Because CBD can help with things like stress, anxiety, gut health and more, many athletes tell us how important CBD is to their overall well being.
They Don’t Take CBD
During a long training session or a grueling race, at the point when your body is screaming for relief, telling you it’s time to quit or slow down, CBD can be a better solution than ibuprofen.
Don’t Do This
Take large amounts of ibuprofen during a long endurance activity.
Among endurance athletes who put their bodies through the ringer on a regular basis, the percentage of those regularly making the mistake of taking OTC drugs like ibuprofen is extremely high. And taking ibuprofen and similar drugs during endurance training and events has been shown to cause acute kidney damage, with one study showing that Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is a common issue encountered in over 34% of ultra-marathoners.
If we wanted to pile-on by sharing a short list of a much longer list of harmful side effects, we would tell you about the headaches, the heartburn, the ulcers, the dizziness, the leg swelling, the liver and the kidney malfunction, and the high blood pressure.
Replace ibuprofen with CBD.
Venga CBD has designed a supplement specifically for athletes in the midst of a grueling event and in need of relief.
They’re Aid Station Gummies, which are 25mg of pain-targeting, inflammation-reducing, THC-free CBD that are perfect in packs or pockets for a convenient boost of CBD on-the-go, so you can perform your best.
Take CBD proactively during a long training session or race.
Start taking CBD BEFORE you need it to help keep pain and inflammation at bay.
So there you have it. Five mistakes and five solutions. Avoid these mistakes and get more than 1000% more performance out of your CBD!
