About – Mt. Toppin

About

Mt. Toppin is the first company to help runners reduce chronic pain, recover faster, and improve overall mood and performance with NY-grown, organic hemp.

 

When I first tried CBD, it was about a week before I ran my first marathon ever. I did just about everything wrong, including only running 20-30 miles/week and doing the longest run I'd ever done in my life, a 23-miler, 6 days before the race. Typically you do your "long run" in preparation for a marathon about 6 weeks before the race. I finished that run around 9pm and could barely walk after. That night, I decided to try CBD oil. While I was pretty sore the next day, I could walk up and down stairs fine and wasn't nearly as roughed up as I thought I'd be and I felt great for my trail marathon that weekend. That experience sparked my interest in using CBD for running. When I tried to do more research on how CBD could help runners, I couldn’t find much, so I decided to start Mt. Toppin as a brand to help runners understand and get the most out of CBD to improve their running.
 
Whether you’re running your first 5K or your 50th 100-miler, it’s a great feeling when you hit your goal you’ve been reaching for. That’s what Mt. Toppin wants to help you achieve. There are no short-cuts when it comes to running though. You have to put in the miles, cross-train, and focus on rest and nutrition. CBD is not a magic substance to make you faster and take away all your pain - pain will always be part of running - CBD is a tool in your tool-kit that helps your performance and enhances the training you’ve done. Used with proper rest, stretching, cross-training, and nutrition regimens, it can play a huge role in improving recovery and performance of your next race or performance. 
 
When you support Mt. Toppin, you are supporting New York farmers. Mt. Toppin is the highest peak of my hometown in Upstate New York and is only a few miles from where Mt. Toppin hemp is grown, outside in the sunshine. We’re transparent on the quality and content of every CBD product so you know exactly what you’re getting and who is part of the supply chain.
 
When’s your next race? What’s time are you aiming to beat? What mountain top are you reaching for? Join the pack of runners who rely on Mt. Toppin to help them perform better and run longer. You’ll be glad you did.
