Post-workout recovery is essential for overall success in every training regimen. Whether your an elite athlete, fitness enthusiast, or an average Joe just trying to stay in shape, the post-workout phase is where all the magic happens. Here’s the scoop:
When executed properly, workouts are designed to stress the body. If your goal is to become stronger, faster, and fitter, consider your recovery phase just as important as the workout itself (especially if you’re trying to remain injury free). As you fatigue and breakdown various muscles during your workout, microscopic tears occur deep within the muscle bellies resulting in an inflammation response, which is where CBD comes into play.
Before we dive into the potential benefits of incorporating CBD into your post-workout routine, lets touch base on CBD itself.
What Is CBD?
CBD, which is short for Cannabidiol, is one of over one hundred known naturally occurring compounds found in the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa) that interacts with a series of receptors in the body known as the endocannabinoid system. While marijuana strains tend to be THC-rich (the cannabinoid responsible for inducing the “high” that cannabis is most known for), Hemp produces CBD-rich strains with only trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%).
While most people agree THC has notable therapeutic applications, not everyone has access to medical marijuana. Additionally, not everyone wants to experience the mind-altering effects that result from consuming it. This is why Cannabidiol (CBD) is an attractive option for many people. Furthermore, it’s now federally legal to consume CBD without fear of legal repercussions.
Incorporating CBD Into Your Post-Workout Regimen
When muscles are broken down and become fatigued during workouts, a condition known as DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is triggered. Usually, as the muscles swell and lactic acid builds up, you start to feel fatigued. Inflammation is experienced when muscles are damaged. When damaged, it becomes difficult for muscles to heal until inflammation is eased, which is where CBD plays a key role.
Numerous studies have shown that CBD has therapeutic properties when it comes to combating inflammation at the source. Such studies have shown that CBD may have a positive effect internally on the cardiovascular system as a result of potentially reducing inflammation. The numerous beneficial effects CBD has on the human body means that it may potentially work on pain at the source rather than just mask and alleviate symptoms.
