CBD For Workout Recovery
Athletes, weekend warriors, folks who want to stay young and active, and those of us who know we are getting older but aren’t giving in; we all want to know how to maintain our bodies so we can keep going. At the same time, we don’t want to use chemically products that are going to have adverse consequences (someone once said “There are no such things as side effects, just effects we don’t want”).
Doctors and trainers agree, the best way to maintain our bodies as we exercise is to give ample attention to recovery.
“Recovery is the single most important part of any training or exercise program. Recovery allows for improved performance, permits time for our body to heal itself in preparation for the next training load, and decreases the risk of potential injury.”*
So the question for all of us stay-in-the-gamers is: how do I make sure I recover? And the answer is CBDa. CBDa promotes multiple factors contributing to recovery, and so is the perfect support as you maintain your body.Sleep
First, CBDa promotes deep, restful sleep and sleep is one of the most important factors contributing to recovery. Do you find yourself struggling to fall asleep, or waking up multiple times during the night? This will negatively impact your recovery, making it harder for you to maintain pain-free workouts in the future. As you sleep, more blood flows to your muscles, bringing important nutrients and oxygen rich with recovery goodness. So to recover, you need to sleep; our community reports that CBDa helps them to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. To support your sleep, consider our drink additive or soft gels.Inflammation
All exercise results in some kind of inflammation to the muscles, and good recovery must address this inflammation. Often people treat inflammation and the pain associated with it using an anti-inflammatory drug like ibuprofen, but there are some non-trivial and negative effects to taking ibuprofen for extended periods. CBDa is an anti-inflammatory without those negative effects, and our CBDa is organic and as close to the plant as possible. For sore muscle spot treatment, try our muscle rub, and for all over anti-inflammation, check out our infusion.
