CBD is becoming increasingly used by professional and amiture athletes for pain, inflammation & recovery. Many pro-cyclists, triathletes, runners, and more are turning to CBD as their favorite training supplement. Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive sister compound of THC, is believed to have some incredible health and wellness benefits.

So how does CBD benefit extreme athletes and fitness enthusiasts? 

Muscle & Joint Pain

All athletes experience pain during intense training. Even casual fitness goers, active in weight training, crossfit, hiking and the like, must fight through pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, are used by many athletes to minimize the pain. However, ibuprofen and other OTC pain relievers have serious side effects, including damage to your gut. Opioids have even more health concerns, including addiction and death. CBD is quickly becoming the leading alternative for muscle & joint pain.  


CBD has been demonstrated to reduce inflammation. Inflammation can compromise the immune system, affect sports performance & training, reduce muscle healing, resulting in pain and even cause you to miss workouts altogether. Since inflammation is a normal part of training and recovery, it most likely occurs with greater intensity and thus leading up to a competition. As with muscle & joint pain, CBD is more effective on reducing inflammation than other alternatives and also not associated with gut damage of NSAIDs, like ibuprofen.  


CBD is more effective than any protein powder or post-workout shake / food for muscle recovery, fatigue reduction and replenishing the body’s energy. CBD will also help you sleep better at night, producing more melatonin, a growth hormone which promotes muscle recovery. CBD should not be a substitute for protein shakes and a healthy diet, but a supplement that helps muscle recovery as well as body and mental fatigue.
