It comes as no surprise: being a dedicated athlete is hard work. And when you’re pushing your mind and body to their limit, it’s important to know all the ways in which you can take care of yourself. Here’s a few reasons why athletes around the country, and world, are adding CBD into their fitness routine.
Research can support that CBD includes properties that reduce inflammation and help joint pain. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain and immune system to help fight inflammation. And why does this matter to athletes? Because inflammation reduces flexibility and mobility–two qualities most, if not all, athletes need in order to thrive.
- Pain Relief
Let’s throw “no pain, no gain” out the window for a moment. Because while it does take a physical sacrifice to achieve certain athletic goals, the body doesn’t, and shouldn’t, have to suffer. From superficial CBD creams and gel roll-ons that utilize hemp oil and other natural ingredients, to full-support capsules, the pain relieving benefits of CBD are worth the hype.
- Stress Relief
The discussion around mental health has been increasingly important, particularly in these last couple of years. The stress that athletes may undergo when training, performing, or competing could cause the body more harm than one realizes. It’s been proven that CBD can help reduce stress, improve sleep, and take the edge off. The mind of an athlete should be taken care of as much as the body.
