How CBD can help you excel as an athlete

As an athlete, you know the constant battle between pushing your limits and giving your body the rest it craves. Recovery is just as important as that last grueling rep, and that's where CBD oil emerges as a potential game-changer. 

How do sports and CBD oil match and what effect does it have on your recovery and fitness?

CBD could:

  1. Reduce inflammation and swelling
  2. Treat painful sports injuries and nerve damage
  3. Help with faster recovery from bone fractures
  4. Improve sleep quality
  5. Improves sports performance

Here's how CBD can support your athletic journey:

• Faster recovery

Reduced inflammation:
Exercise, especially intense training, can cause inflammation and soreness. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties could help reduce this discomfort, allowing your muscles to recover faster and get you back to training sooner.

Improved sleep quality: Many athletes struggle with sleep. CBD might promote better sleep, allowing you to rest more deeply and recover faster.

• Enhanced Performance

Focus and Anxiety Management: Pre-competition jitters or nerves can affect your performance. CBD's potential calming properties might help you manage anxiety and focus on achieving your goals, allowing you to perform at your peak.

Reduced muscle tension: Chronic muscle tension can hinder performance and flexibility. CBD's potential anti-inflammatory effects also help ease muscle tightness, contributing to overall comfort and improved movement.

• Overall well-being

Pain management: CBD's potential pain-relieving properties might help manage discomfort from sports injuries or chronic pain, allowing you to train harder and experience a more fulfilling athletic experience.

Improved Mood and relaxation: The physical demands of training can take a toll on your mood. CBD may offer mood-boosting effects, helping you stay motivated and positive throughout your training journey.

Unleash your potential with CBD

By incorporating CBD oil into your routine, you might experience faster recovery, improved sleep, reduced pain, and enhanced focus. With its potential to support your overall well-being, CBD can be a valuable tool to help you achieve your athletic goals. Remember, a holistic approach is key. Combine CBD with healthy practices like proper nutrition, hydration, and recovery techniques to optimize your performance and reach your full potential.

Finding your perfect CBD routine

Incorporating CBD into your routine can be a smart choice with so many benefits. Here are some tips:

Choose high-quality, reputable brands: Look for third-party lab testing to ensure the product contains the advertised amount of CBD with zero to minimal THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis.

Start low and slow: Individual responses to CBD can vary. Begin with a minimal dose and gradually increase until you find the best amount.

Consider the form: CBD oil, capsules, or topicals can be beneficial depending on your needs. Oils offer precise dosing control, capsules are convenient, and topicals can target specific areas of discomfort.

Maximizing effectiveness:

• Water-soluble CBDActive+: Mix with any hot or cold drink, fastest absorption.

• Sublingual for oil. Place oil under your tongue for faster absorption (hold 30-60 seconds before swallowing).

• Consistency is key. Take your CBD product daily, ideally at the same time, for best results.

Tracking your progress:

 Listen to your body. Notice how you feel and adjust dosage based on your sleep quality, mood, and well-being.

• Find your sweet spot. Experiment to discover the optimal dosage and routine that works for you.

How fast does CBD work?

The onset of CBD's effects can vary depending on several factors, including the method of consumption, dosage, individual metabolism, and the specific reason for using CBD.

CBD's kick-in time depends on how you take it:

Fastest: Water-soluble CBDActive+. Could work in less than 15 minutes

Quick: Sublingual oil (regular CBD oil, applied under the tongue). 15-30 minutes

Moderate: CBD Capsules. 30 min - 2 hours

Slowest but targeted relief: Topicals patches. 15 min - 1 hour

While some experience immediate relief from CBD, others may take longer to feel its effects.

Important Considerations

Consult your doctor: Before starting CBD, especially if you take medications or have underlying health conditions, consult your doctor to discuss potential interactions and determine if CBD is right for you.

World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Regulations: While CBD is generally legal and removed from WADA's banned list, some products might contain trace amounts of THC. Choose THC-free products for competition safety.

The legalities of using CBD in sports

While CBD oil is legal in many parts of the world, including the United States, there are still regulations and restrictions surrounding its use in sports. Athletes should familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations of their respective sports organizations to ensure compliance.

Some sports organizations may have specific restrictions on the THC content of CBD products. THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis, and even though CBD oil contains minimal levels of THC, athletes should be aware of any limitations set by their sport's governing body.

It's important to note that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its list of prohibited substances in 2018. This decision was based on the recognition that CBD does not have the potential to enhance athletic performance and is not a risk to the integrity of sport. However, athletes should still exercise caution and check with their sports organization to ensure that they are in compliance with all regulations.

Athletes should also consider the source and quality of the CBD products they are using. Not all CBD products are created equal, and some may contain contaminants or higher levels of THC than advertised. It's advisable to choose CBD products from reputable manufacturers who provide third-party lab testing results to ensure purity and potency.
