Enhance Your Fitness Program with CBD
CBD for Athletes
Whether you are a seasoned athlete or someone simply wanting to sprinkle in a bit more activity in your daily routine, many people are looking to natural alternatives to help in their fitness journey.
Professional and ameteur athletes alike (runners, CrossFit lovers, skaters, roller derby players, yoga and pilates trainers, and more) can benefit from the healing properties of this amazing - zero high - cannabinoid.
You may already be familiar with CBD’s benefits for anxiety, insomnia and pain. And now, research is suggesting incorporating CBD into your fitness routine can help you perform better, recover faster, and keep you in the game longer.
CBD for Mental Focus and Performance
Mental game is one of the most important factors in athletic performance. CBD can help by its ability to decrease anxiety and reduce the brain noise without the high or altered thinking.
A study published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information, explains that CBD interacts with serotonin receptors in a way that provides therapeutic results for our mind and body:
“Cannabis triggers a complex set of experiences in humans including euphoria, heightened sensitivity to external experience, and relaxation. The primary noneuphorizing and nonaddictive compound of cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), has recently been shown to possess considerable therapeutic potential for treating a wide range of disorders such as chronic pain, nausea, epilepsy, psychosis, and anxiety.”
CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for anxiety
Many athletes and aspiring fitness buffs, from runners to skaters to yogis, use CBD to help them focus and reduce performance anxiety. They report it helps keep their minds sharp to focus on what really matters at the moment.
CBD for Muscle Recovery
Personal trainers and medical professionals advise to eat well, get good sleep, and take rest days in between intense workouts. Progressive healthcare providers are also recommending the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD.
In a recent article in U.S. News and World Report, Dr. Alan Beyer, sports medicine doctor and executive medical director of Hoag Orthopedic Institute in California, recommends CBD as a post work-out recovery solution:
CBD can be an effective way to relieve the inflammation and pain caused by exercise
Many people add supplements and protein powders to replenish the body and aid in their post workout recovery. But when it comes to fast muscle restoration and fatigue reduction after a rigorous workout, nothing is proving as powerful as CBD and its all natural anti-inflammatory benefits.
CBD for Pain Relief
CBD is recommended as a substitute for NSAIDS, opiates, and other liver and kidney damaging pharmaceuticals.
Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is a most promising way to help patients naturally recover from exercise related injuries
How often have we popped a few ibuprofen pre- or post- workout ? But we are learning these other other NSAIDS can have other adverse effects on your body. Seems counterproductive doesn’t it?
A 2017 study by the Brightfield Group covered 2,400 of HelloMD’s members for a deep dive into its members usage of CBD products and their effectiveness.
Here's what they found:
42% of CBD users stopped using pharmaceutical medications altogether
80% of CBD users found these products to be a very or extremely effective treatment
The Best CBD Products for Fitness
