6 Ways CBD Can Boost Your Athletic Performance & Recovery

Updated: May 30, 2022

CBD is widely reported to have major health benefits including but most definitely not limited to:

  • Pain relief

  • Stress relief

  • Anxiety relief

  • Mood enhancement

All without the psychoactive effects of marijuana. That’s right. CBD products will NOT get you high, they’re non-addictive and legal! They’re also ideal natural supplements that support relaxation and sports recovery.

What Are the Benefits of Using CBD for Sports Recovery?

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 and balances hormones.

Reduces Inflammation: Recent studies suggest that CBD reduce pre and post exercise inflammation. These anti-inflammatory benefits can help you recover faster, improve your training, and avoid delayed muscle soreness.

Pain Relief: CBD 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……..which is why our Muscle Relief Cream is PERFECT.

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.

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 may help you reduce these spasms.
