Working out is pure joy, but only if you can do it with good energy, motivation, and injury-free. If staying healthy and exercising are important in your life, you can find a new source of power for the body in CBD, to keep up a mobile lifestyle up to high age and develop athletic endurance.
Among world-class elite athletes, CBD is a valued ‘fuel’ due to its versatile benefits in terms of speeding up recovery, achieving better sleep, and reducing the stress associated with upcoming competitions. CBD is significantly different from THC, which is a banned substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency, as it offers different therapeutic properties without violating the rules of drug testing and without the “high” state of THC. Thus, CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with proven anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anti-anxiety, and pain-relieving properties.
How does CBD affect the body?
CBD directly affects the human body’s endocannabinoid system or ECS. This body system is responsible for many processes, such as controlling our appetite, mood, sensitivity to pain, and inflammation. In research and clinical trials conducted in 2020 researchers found that CBD can help promote physiological, psychological, and biochemical benefits that improve the quality of life for everyone, but are especially beneficial for athletes. These results are based on CBD’s ability to alleviate inflammatory pain and nerve irritation associated with tissue damage or neuropathic pain. This is important information for both elite and recreational athletes who are engaged in, for example, endurance sports that require long and intense training hours, and many repetitive movements that exhaust the body and therefore can cause inflammation, irritation, or injury.
CBD for athletes is best taken orally as an oil or tincture for the most effective absorption through mucous membranes, but CBD creams can also be applied to the body. Topical use can target specific areas, while sublingual consumption results in a general sense of well-being of body and mind.
However, physical strength and performance are largely affected by our mental state. Many athletes experience debilitating stress and anxiety before an important competition or important training session. Since stress can negatively affect performance, CBD offers a good way to ground yourself, and it’s completely natural and safe.
In addition to good preparation, it is important for athletes and people with just active lifestyles to get enough sleep after a sports session, game, or hard training so that the body has time to recover. Elevated stress levels can cause difficulty falling asleep. Again, CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to regulate mood and energy levels, helping you stay active during the day and sleep well at night.
