We are hearing more and more about CBD for athletes. Is the use of hemp-based products genuinely beneficial to physically active people? Athletes say CBD oil enhances rapid muscle regeneration, helps reduce stress and improves concentration.
The popularity of hemp products among professionals is evident in a recording of Nate Diaz, MMA fighter, where he vaporises CBD after a contest. He swears CBD oil helps him to regenerate properly.
Four Reasons Why Active People Reach For CBD
Regular exercise causes post-exercise stress which can lead to injury or burn-out. CBD is a powerful antioxidant and can reduce inflammation in the joints. It also works as an analgesic agent by lowering pain levels. It also contains myrcene, a terpene which helps your muscles to relax - useful for recovery after training.
The calming effect of CBD reduces stress levels and promotes better quality sleep, necessary for adequate recovery between workouts. The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD can facilitate muscle recovery after workouts. Full spectrum CBD oil contains linalool, a terpene known for the scent of lavender which has a calming effect and promotes good quality sleep.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the list of banned substances in 2018. Athletes can use it both in training and competitions; they appreciate its safe classification, despite potential side effects including dry mouth, drowsiness, nausea and diarrhoea. This is not a great deal when compared to some painkillers, like ibuprofen, which can create further health issues if used too often.
Many people think that CBD benefits appetite, restoring the desire to eat healthy food. This should be the basis of everyone’s daily diet, not just for athletes.
