Athletes of all ages are finding the health benefits of CBD are enhancing their performance and recovery times.
One of the main benefits for athletes to use CBD is the reduction of inflammation due to tissue and nerve damage and neuropathic pain. This could prove to be extremely beneficial to endurance athletes. This also would allow all athletes the ability to recover faster from prolonged workouts.
Another benefit from introducing CBD into your workout is the reduction of gastrointestinal damage. Athletes who regularly perform at high levels and stress their bodies and minds frequently, can reduce oxygen and nutrient delivery to their gastrointestinal tract. Gastrointestinal stress can lead to vomiting and nausea. Research has shown CBD can reduce tissue damage and restore the permeability of the GI tract
CBD has also shown positive results in treating symptoms related to mild traumatic brain injuries. The neuroprotective properties of CBD help to treat depression, pain and aggression as related to the effects of a concussion.
CBD research on sleep shows it has an effect on inducing sleep and promoting alertness depending on the dose of CBD given. This may help regulate sleep habits with athletes. A better nights sleep will reduce stress and allow the body to heal quicker.
Due to there possibly being a minimal amount of Delta 9 THC in some CBD products, athletes should be careful to make sure they use an isolate CBD product that does not contain any THC.
All of these benefits, not only help athletes, but also can help you to achieve a better and more fulfilling lifestyle through CBD.
