CBD is tied to the endocannabinoid system. Tiny receptors located within the body interact with cannabinoids. The latter are substances that are both produced within the body (endocannabinoids) and present in some plants (phytocannabinoids).

Phytocannabinoid supplementation such as CBD can help the body and mind on many levels because cannabinoid receptors are distributed throughout the body and are found in the central and peripheral nervous system, in the gastrointestinal system, and in the connective tissue.

CBD has been taken off the WADA list (World Anti-Doping Agency) since January 1, 2018.

CBD Benefits for Athletes

The main effect of CBD is that it regenerates the central nervous system.

Strength sports considerably tire and put stress on the nervous system. CBD allows for unparalleled recovery thanks to optimal sleep. Studies have shown that CBD boosts the human body’s endocannabinoid system to help relieve pain.

It is also common for athletes who work out multiple times a week to get a feeling of heavy legs and muscle fatigue. CBD has a relaxing effect on the vascular system and helps drain toxins.

CBD is also anti-inflammatory and relieves body aches and pain.

With CBD, athletes get rid of all the toxins in their body more easily, which makes them feel overall fitter. They are ready to push themselves further again.
