Simple and subtle, Arcanum Edge’s new hydration powder works amazing post-workout

Terrance Siemon

Arcanum Edge is leading the charge when it comes to performance-based Cannabidiol (CBD) products. With products that range from topicals and salt soaks to kinesiology tape, Arcanum Edge provides multiple ways that athletes can include CBD into their workout routine. 

We recently tested Arcana-Lyte, a first-to-market water-soluble CBD hydration powder packet that contains 5 mg of Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract with naturally occurring CBD. It also contains electrolytes, which always prove beneficial for both our performance and recovery. 

Our thoughts: It was hard to say how Arcana-Lyte affected our performance when it was consumed prior to our workout. But we did notice that when used post-workout, upon returning from a lunch run, we felt less exhausted and more focused for the rest of the afternoon; less checked out.

Using Arcana-Lyte is simple. Like any other sports drink powder, simply add a packet to 16 ounces of water and wait for it to dissolve. The powder does take a little bit to fully dissolve, which is not uncommon in a good number of powdered sports drinks. The “Sweet Water” flavor is extremely subtle, almost to the point of going unnoticed, which is nice for athletes that don’t want overpowering fruit flavors. The mixture did cause the water to feel slightly thicker and oily, which is most likely due to the hemp extract. But this won’t dissuade us from using it again in the future. We hope to continue using Arcana-Lyte to get a better idea of the long-term benefits.
