CBD for Athletic Performance

Updated: Nov 5, 2020



Cannabidiol, more commonly referred to as CBD, is a non-psychoactive, pain-relieving cannabinoid found in cannabis & hemp plants. In addition to pain relief, CBD offers a variety of other health benefits including reducing inflammation, antioxidant properties, as well as neuroprotective benefits.


How Does CBD Work In The Body?

Science tells us that CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a complex system that works within the body and controls a variety of biological processes like appetite, immune responses, mood, pain and sleep. The ECS contains a network of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body of all mammals, called CB1 & CB2. The ECS function is to help the body achieve homeostasis—the body’s natural state of balance. CBD also works on other receptors, such as Serotonin, Vanilloid and Adenosine A2A.


How Can CBD Improve Athletic Performance?

Whether you are a runner, boxer, swimmer or just love working out at the gym gaining those muscle goals, CBD can serve you a purpose and here's how:


1) Sleep - One of the most reported benefits of CBD is its effect of your REM-sleep cycle. Achieving a good nights rest can aid in focus, recovery, and performance.


2) Recovery - After strenuous cardiovascular training, inflammation occurs in the body, leading to muscle soreness. CBD has been shown to reduce inflammation and ease pain.


3) Pre-workout - CBD can provide decreased tension and increased relaxation, thereby providing more flexibility for workouts.


CBD can help boost performance while speeding up the recovery process - its a win-win move next time you get ready to hit the gym!
