If you’ve ever been powering through a project, chipping your way through a workout, or hiking in nature only to look down at your watch and realize an hour or two have passed undetected, you might have found yourself in a state of flow. Being 'in the zone'—or 'flow state'—is a highly sought after meditative state for artists, athletes, entrepreneurs and just about anyone eager to optimize the hours in their day. Lately, this immersive state of consciousness can often be found more easily through the usage of hemp or cannabinoid products, oils or extracts coupled with some simple mindset exercises.
Here’s a quick list of facts to get you up to date on flow state, hemp and how they can work hand in hand:
  • What is hemp oil?

    Simply put, hemp oil or hemp extract is the result of extracting the oil from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp has become a widely utilized and popular crop with many uses such as textiles, industrial products, health and organic mind and body care among a myriad of other purposes. It’s important to note that hemp is THC-free and non-addictive.
  • How can flow state work for you?

    Those who have found their own personal flow state will maintain that they experience increased focus, heightened creativity as well as full immersion in the task at hand. While in a productive flow state, time passes unnoticed as you’re fully immersed and present in your project, task or event. Many athletes and artists explain that their flow state can be likened to enjoyable, relaxing meditation.
  • How can you achieve flow state?

    It has become mainstream knowledge in recent years that you need to ease your mind into flow state by focusing on the following three triggers: clear and tenable goals, the willingness to focus intensely, and the knowledge of the necessary skills needed to complete the task. The usage of hemp oil or cannabinoid-infused drinks or tinctures paired with a commitment to this mindset could have you well on your way to a golden flow state experience.
