CBD For Athletic Recovery
As an athlete, you train hard so you can perform at a high level. Both the training and the actual performance can be extremely taxing on your body. Now, add to that our busy schedules. We are busier now than we have ever been before and that includes the time between workout’s or practices and actually performing. Which means… we have a small window for recovery!
CBD has been attacking that small window for many well known athletes across the world. CBD has been found to help athletes recovery in many different ways.
How CBD Can Help You Recover
Pain Relief: Cannabis is an analgesic, which helps to relieve pain both during and after exercise. Many athletes use CBD post-workout to help manage pain from muscle aches, to sore joints, and older injuries. It can help you too!
Reduce Inflammation: Recent studies suggest that CBD may reduce pre and post exercise inflammation. These anti-inflammatory benefits can help you recover faster, improve your training, and avoid delayed muscle soreness.
Reduction of Muscle Spasms: Dehydration, muscle sprains, and nerve damage are just a few causes of muscle spasms. Cannabinoids are known to have antispasmodic properties and supplementing with CBD oil may help you reduce these spasms.
Sleep and Relaxation: CBD is known to support healthy sleep cycles without causing drowsiness. Enjoying quality sleep each night is one of the most important aspects of recovery. During sleep is when your body repairs, recharges, balances hormones, and even drops fat.
It’s Anti-Catabolic: Research has shown that CBD has anti-catabolic properties, which means that it can help reduce the breakdown of lean muscle tissue and even help to build more muscle mass. CBD has been shown to decrease the number of catabolic hormones in the body and regulate the stress hormone cortisol, which breaks down muscle tissue to supply the body with blood sugar.
Decreasing Nausea: Intense workouts cause blood flow to be diverted from the stomach which may result in nausea. The anti-emetic effect of CBD helps reduce nausea during and after exercise.
Increasing Appetite: Intense workouts require additional calories for optimal recovery and CBD oil may help you to stimulate your appetite in a healthy way.
Cardiovascular Support: With its ability to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation, CBD is currently being researched as a therapeutic solution for cardiovascular diseases.
