CBD & Fitness

CBD is a healthy alternative with proven results from extensive research. With information consistently being released, CBD’s popularity has increased around the world and now legal in over 40 countries. A particular demographic with a growing interest in CBD are those who exercise and fitness train, leading to the question: How can CBD aid and improve a fit lifestyle?

Anyone who’s exercised knows the pain and soreness that results from an intense workout session. Intensive physical activity can cause tiny tears in muscle tissue, which makes the body work harder to repair the damaged tissue in order to build up to a stronger muscle. However, these tears may cause inflammation, pain and sometimes injury to the body when one’s limit is surpassed. The analgesic properties of CBD combined with its ability to affect direct receptors in the body makes it a powerful recovery supplement.

CBD reduces inflammation while simultaneously minimizing pain by having a direct and indirect effect on the endocannabinoid receptors (CB1 & CB2) located in the brain and body. The reduced pain and inflammation can aid in a faster recovery as the body focuses its energy on muscle repair instead of the symptoms surrounding the process. CBD also aids with maintaining a healthy and restful sleep cycle, thus, improving overall health. Studies show that larger doses of CBD help relax your body and reduce anxiety and stress to promote a higher-quality sleep. With this improved recovery comes strength, endurance, and the ability to train longer and harder.

There is still so much to know about CBD and how it affects exercise and fitness training. Even so, there is plenty of evidence of its overall benefits on the human body and mind. Consulting with your doctor is recommended to make sure CBD is the right alternative for you. Hierba Buena Inc. offer a wide variety of high-quality CBD products to meet your needs!
