22 May CBD for Sports Recovery
Using CBD after training and competition is becoming increasingly popular among athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
Over recent years, the demand for CBD among athletes and the sports community has surged as more is learned about how CBD can promote better recovery and optimize peak performance. Derived from the stalk and seed of hemp, CBD oil is a natural botanical concentrate that athletes believe reduces their post-routine recovery period.
HempMeds® offers an array of convenient methods for integrating a CBD product into your sports recovery routine, allowing you to capitalize on the many restorative benefits of CBD.
Athletes and CBD
MMA fighters, NFL players, and athletes everywhere are turning to CBD as a safe way to promote wellness and encourage restoration. UFC fighters Nate Diaz and Liz Carmouche are just a couple of the professional athletes who have recently acknowledged they incorporate CBD into their routine.
When your body is taken to its limit time and again, it’s important to take steps to promote overall health so that you can properly recover from intense physical exertion.
CBD interacts with the body’s native systems to assist the body in achieving homeostasis, and many athletes have found these balancing properties help them recover more quickly so they’re able to perform at their best at their next competition or practice.
Athletes also appreciate that all-natural CBD products are completely non-addictive and non-psychoactive, so they don’t have to worry about getting bogged down with a euphoric high or experiencing any other type of adverse effects.
You don’t have to be a professional or highly competitive athlete to benefit from the natural properties of CBD. Amateur athletes, recreational participants, and anyone that loves to work out regularly can also take advantage of CBD’s balancing properties.
Why Should I Begin Using CBD After Sports?
CBD oil products help encourage better recovery so that you can reach higher levels of athletic achievement by promoting proper sleep, appetite, metabolism, immune response, and more.
When CBD oil products are consumed, the body absorbs CBD and the compounds eventually make their way to the bloodstream where they’re able to interact with special cannabinoid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
These cannabinoid receptors are a major component of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network that keeps the body and its many functions in balance and functioning normally.
After a strenuous run, intense weight lifting session, or a particularly hard practice, chances are your body is thrown off balance due to the physical exertion.
No matter whether you’re participating in your local recreational sports league or training for the next Olympic Games, your ability to fully recover and perform at your best tomorrow is highly dependent on how efficient your endocannabinoid system can keep your functions in balance.
CBD products like those offered by HempMeds® can help your body restore itself after sports competitions and practices by stimulating the endocannabinoid system and encouraging its efforts to bring your body and its functions back into balance.
How Should I Use CBD for Sports Recovery?
HempMeds® offers a variety of CBD products that lend themselves well to athletes and physically active folks who are looking to augment recovery. CBD can be added at the end of your daily training, tennis match, pick-up game of basketball, or round of golf.
Dixie Botanicals® Dew Drop tinctures are a simple way to introduce CBD into your system after training or a game. Available in 1 and 2 oz. bottles, Dew Drops are compact enough to slip into your gym bag or locker, so your CBD is there right after you’re finished competing for the day. Simply use the dropper top to add half a dropper of peppermint, cinnamon, or naturally flavored Dew Drops under your tongue.
Athletes know they need to consume a post-workout meal within 30-60 minutes for optimal recovery. Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) CBD Isolate can seamlessly be incorporated into your post-training smoothie or shake. CBD Isolate is a 99% pure CBD powder, making it easy to maximize your CBD intake for sports recovery. Simply add the desired amount of CBD isolate powder before blending.
