Can CBD help with athletic Performance and Recovery?
Athletes are turning to CBD for performance and recovery. Should you?
In the heat of competition, there is so much that is required of an athlete: focus, strength, endurance, resilience, anticipation. The adrenaline that is pumping while competing enables all of these requirements to kick at their greatest potential. But once the competition is over, the body reverts to the norm, and often that means soreness, exhaustion, stiffness, and fatigue.
Athletes of all levels turn to products like Advil and Aleve to dull the pain. But these solutions tend to only stop you from feeling the pain, and offer very little therapeutic boost for your body. A new option for inflammation and potential workout recovery booster is taking center stage - CBD.
When taken regularly, studies are increasingly showing that CBD holds promise as an anti-inflammatory supplement. And with a recent World Health Organization report showing no public health risk for CBD or potential for abuse, both athletes and those suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions like arthritis are exploring CBD as a replacement for other prescribed and over-the-counter pain relievers.
“CBD is a natural alternative that has helped me stay at the top of my game..., whether that be regulating my sleep, relaxing on long flights, helping with inflammation, or recovering after hard training and games. Bottom line, it’s natural, and I don’t want to be filling my body with chemicals.” – Megan Rapinoe
