‘As a female founded and primarily female company we wanted to create a style that celebrated our femininity but also made us feel strong.
‘I was so sick of wearing leggings all the time that I wanted to challenge my team in designing something that would free your legs.

‘It’s become a hero product for us, and we’re so excited to be able to offer our community technical apparel that allows them to re-imagine how exercise comes to life.’

Good for your body: The products are meant to fight muscle soreness and promote healing
Through a scientific process called microencapsulation, Acabada strategically infuses CBD molecules into luxe, high-performance fabrics by wrapping microscopic droplets of zero-THC, hemp-derived CBD with a protective coating.
Using a patented textile finishing treatment, the microcapsules bond to the fibers in the fabric.
Strategically placed within the garments to align with muscle groups, the microcapsules gradually open over time as each layer meets with friction from your skin.
Each garment is infused with up to 25 grams of zero-THC, lab certified 99.9% pure CBD which lasts 40 high intensity washing cycles.
As customers approach 40 wears and washes, they can choose to sustainably recycle their CBD-infused garments through Acabada’s upcycling program.
The recycled, synthetic fabrics will be repurposed where needed as commercial materials.
With this program customers will also receive a 30% exclusive discount on their next Acabada ProActiveWear purchase.
