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

Updated: Sep 1, 2021


Spring has sprung! It’s the season of new beginnings after an unprecedented year of activities ending. 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 recover, 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. Has working out gone by the wayside lately? Totally understandable. And fixable. CBD is the perfect natural solution to help increase your focus and energy plus speed-up athletic recovery from sore muscles as you resume an active, anti-couch-potato life.


CBD Reduces Muscle Discomfort


CBD is a great post-workout go-to since it reduces muscle discomfort 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, assisting with discomfort that often decreases weekly workouts. No excuses!


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


CBD Promotes Mental Focus


It’s hard for a body to have a great workout when the mind has other plans. Mental obstacles 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 keeps you positively focused on getting fit.


CBD Helps You 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. Taking CBD before bedtime helps promote balance and wellbeing allover, which reduces the negative thoughts that keeps many of us up all night. More sleep leads to stronger muscles, concentration, and dedication.


How does CBD do this?


CBD helps promote healthy sleep patterns 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 other vital bodily functions that affect our workouts.


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


Conclusion


If you want a great workout, you need CBD.


Got it? Good! Now get moving!
