CBD and Working Out: How Does Cannabis Help With Athletic Recovery?


Spring has sprung! It’s the season of new beginnings after an unprecedented year of activities ending. So let’s celebrate our healthier world with a spring makeover, shall we? We shall! Get up, get out and get moving again. Maybe you’re feeling a little rusty from all that Netflix binging? No worries. CBD helps your body heal, pre and post workout, so you can get back to your beloved sports and exercises with ease.


How Does CBD Help With Exercise And Muscle Recovery?


We all know exercise does the mind and body good, in addition to eating a nutritious diet and getting enough sleep each night. Have these healthy habits gone by the wayside lately? Totally understandable. And fixable. CBD is the perfect natural solution to alleviate sore muscle pain, increase focus and keep your body energized as you resume your active life.


CBD For Pain Relief


CBD is a great workout go-to since it reduces unavoidable muscle pain and inflammation after strenuous exercise. It’s the natural choice for anyone who prefers a healthier alternative to prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Um, all of us, right? And CBD is non-addictive and non-psychoactive, so the only high you’ll feel during your workout is from endorphins.


Whether you choose topical, tincture, softgel or gummy form, CBD helps muscles recover faster, eliminating lingering pain that often decreases weekly workouts. No excuses!


Athletes and fitness-fanatics, worldwide, are increasingly turning to cannabis to alleviate pain and improve muscle recovery time.



CBD For Improving Mental Focus


It’s hard for a body to have a great workout when the mind has other plans. Stress, anxiety and a bad mood are common mental obstacles that make it harder to achieve healthy goals. CBD can’t cure the distractions, but it can greatly improve how we react to them. Due to its calming effect on the body and brain, CBD is a natural mood booster that dissolves stress and anxiety to keep you positively focused on getting fit.



CBD For Sleep


Every fitness enthusiast knows a good night’s sleep is essential for a great workout the next day. Our bodies repair cells as we sleep, resulting in a healthier state of mind and body when we awaken. CBD helps promote balance and wellbeing allover, which reduces the harmful stress that keeps many of us up all night. More sleep leads to stronger muscles, concentration and dedication. How does CBD do this?


CBD helps us sleep by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, which influences all other systems in the body. Since CBD promotes balance and restoration, this feeling of wellbeing flows throughout the entire body to chill…us…out. CBD is the key to keeping the endocannabinoid system in check, which affects how well we sleep, as well as a myriad of vital bodily functions—pain, memory, mood, immunity, appetite, energy and metabolism.


There’s so much more to learn about this complex system that controls the entire body. We’ll dig a lot deeper into the role CBD plays in aiding the endocannabinoid system in a future blog. Be sure to come back and check it out!


Conclusion


If you want to stay pain-free, focused, well-rested, positive, strong and energetic during your workout, you need CBD.


Got it? Good! Now get moving!
