Run Series - by Dean Karnazes

Three-Step Performance CBD System

Athletes need products they can count on -- there’s no margin for error. With that in mind, King Buddha Run Series was designed with components that help you take on any challenge. Fuel up with our CBD energy drink; fight pain and soreness with our Curcumin + CBD softgels; and boost your recovery with our premier CBD roll-on.

Powdered Drink Mix: CBD for Energy and Focus

Our vitamin-enhanced powdered drink mix is formulated with 20mg of CBD per serving to promote focus and energy. The mellow, sustained energy boost is delivered without the jitters associated with high-caffeine drinks or supplements.

How does CBD work to increase energy? CBD has been shown to enhance protein synthesis in the hypothalamus, which has an important role in the management of alertness and focus. CBD also affects the body’s endocannabinoid system, which in turn affects numerous natural cycles and systems. Not only can CBD give a boost in alertness, but it can promote better sleep resulting in less grogginess and more energy day-to-day.

Softgel Tabs: CBD for WELLNESS

Our Curcumin-based soft gel with 25mg of CBD is designed to put the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids to work against pain and inflammation.

This supplement is built around curcumin, the active compound in Turmeric, which is scientifically proven to combat inflammation. CBD is often used as a treatment for chronic pain. Combined in our special formula, these two compounds are a force to be reckoned with.

Pain Relieving Roll-On: CBD for Recovery

King Buddha formulated this 1500mg topical roll-on area-specific relief and recovery on the go. This topical CBD can be applied during intense activity as well as afterward to help with recovery. Because of the high concentration of cannabinoid receptors on the skin, topical CBD can have an immense effect on inflammation and pain when applied directly.

Each of these products was co-developed with renowned ultramarathon runner Dean Karnazas and tested in the field. The Run Series boasts the high quality expected from King Buddha CBD products and is third-party tested for purity and potency.

The Best CBD Products for Athletes and Non-Athletes Alike

King Buddha is proud of the amazing products that have come out of our collaboration with Dean Karnazas. The Run Series products represent the future of specialized CBD applications and we always strive to bring the best to every product we create.

Our CBD products are all derived from American-grown, 100% organic hemp plants. Each product is independently tested for quality assurance, and all of our products are backed by the King Buddha satisfaction guarantee.

What should I expect when using CBD products from King Buddha?

The effects of Run Series products are usually noticeable shortly after taking them for the first time. In the case of the topical roll-on, relief is typically immediate and lasts for several hours. Your results may vary as everyone’s body chemistry is different.

How are the Run Series CBD products better than others?

The Run Series CBD product line was developed to meet the demands of endurance athletes. Unlike most of our competitors’ products, this stack of high-performance products has been field tested to deliver the goods! There’s nothing quite like it out there.
King Buddha always takes the gold medal in quality, too. We use the CO2 method to extract the purest CBD from specially-grown organic hemp. Our broad spectrum products retain almost all of the beneficial nutrients, fatty oils, terpenes, and antioxidants so that you can get the best results. Best of all, King Buddha delivers some of the best CBD products around without making you empty your wallet.

How much of the drink mix/softgels/roll-on should I use?

We recommend consulting with your health care professional before using any new supplement or treatment. Run Series products are labelled with recommendations for use. You may need to adjust your servings to suit your unique body chemistry.

Are CBD products legal in my state?

On a federal level, hemp and hemp-derived products are legal to produce, sell, and consume throughout all 50 states. These products must be derived from industrial hemp containing less than 0.3 percent THC. States can still decide if they want to permit the sale and production of hemp-based products. Check your local laws if you’re not sure.

Will I get high from any of the Run Series products?

CBD is derived from industrial hemp, and it must contain less than 0.3%of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) -- the cannabinoid responsible for psychoactive effects -- to be legal. Even in the case of full-spectrum CBD, there is not enough residual THC to produce a high feeling.
