Exercise Well with CBD

June 16, 2021

What is Exercise?

Exercise is physical activity that is planned, structured and repetitive for the purpose of conditioning any part of the body used to improve health and maintain fitness. Generally you work up a sweat, breath heavy and increase your heart rate during exercise.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound extract, comes from the cannabis Sativa plant. CBD has been making news as a wonderful recovery aid. It’s being used to help with aches, pains, inflammations, and muscle spasms. CBD oil is also known for assisting with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Benefits of CBD for Exercise

1). CBD helps to relieve Pain.

Tired of reaching for a bottle of pain relief to soothe pain associated with your workout? CBD could be the answer you’re looking for. From research studies and preclinical evidence to countless personal accounts of CBD’s effectiveness for fighting pain, there’s overwhelming evidence that CBD is one of the most beneficial compounds for pain management.

How exactly does it work? To put it in the most simple way possible, CBD has shown to influence the receptors responsible for managing pain. These receptors are in the endocannabinoid system that is responsible for maintaining balance in the body. CBD helps to regulate the body system by influencing receptors found in the endocannabinoid system in the body.

2). Eliminates Stress and Anxiety.

A 2015 review article found that existing preclinical evidence “strongly supports” CBD as a treatment for several anxiety disorders including: generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Could it help decrease performance stress and anxiety, then? We can’t guarantee as everyone is different but it’s certainly worth a try if you’re open to it.

3). CBD deals with Inflammation.

Inflammation is one of the main things athletes deal with on a regular basis. Research shows that CBD has great potential as a novel anti-inflammatory substance. A 2016 study, for example, found that CBD reduces inflammation and overall pain in arthritic rats. CBD works so well because of the influence it has on the production of cytokines, the signalling proteins responsible for balancing the initiation and resolution of inflammation.

Because of the powerful effect CBD has on reducing inflammation, it’s an excellent way to reduce pain that comes with swelling. It’s also great for preventing joint injury during your workout.

4). Help get enough rest for your Performance.

Regeneration is a big part of recovery. Getting a good night’s sleep can have a substantial impact on your athletic performance as your muscles recover most during sleep. Although CBD does not have a direct impact on sleep, it does support anxiety-relief. Anxiety can lead to a lack of sleep, therefore, CBD can help you sleep better at night and regenerate your muscles.
