CBD APPLIED TO MUSCLE RECOVERY
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is obtained from the cannabis plant. There are several points of interest in this regard, for example CBD can be used to alleviate the symptoms of certain diseases, including excessively high blood pressure, epilepsy, but you have to keep in mind that CBD does not fight and does not counteract the symptoms of these diseases, but it can still help to alleviate them. However, cannabidiol is also particularly useful in recovery after physical exertion and this thanks to its countless properties. Before you dive into a pool full of CBD, here’s what you need to know.
What is the CBD?
Is it an element that has psychotropic effects? What are the real benefits? Could it appear in a medical test?
It must be considered that this matter has come up suddenly. There is no doubt that the CBD has achieved remarkable results in a short time.
If you live in a state where this phenomenon is rapidly gaining ground, you will surely have noticed the change. In fact, if you pay attention, you will notice that CBD has gone from not existing to being practically everywhere. Kiosks, some newsagents, and bistros sell CBD products, spas offer CBD-based treatments and even some large companies are struggling to sell products with this element.
In addition, everyone, be it your friend who suffers of anxiety attacks or nervousness or your relative with osteoarthritis, can safely take CBD via oil or even simply by means of excellent gumdrops. However, although CBD is expanding more and more in the wellness sector, some people still have doubts, especially regarding the correct dosage and intake, as well as the reliability of this product (We’re talking about certificates of origin and production). Below we can find some answers from experts in this regard.
CBD for pain relief
To give an example, nowadays, we are increasingly trying to improve our diet, integrating into our body beneficial elements such as the Omega 3. For some Countries it is easier, while for others it is a difficult battle. With CBD the principle is the same, in fact in the Countries where it has had and is having a greater feedback, you can find it comfortably in the kiosks, in some bistros and there are even shops used to trade CBD products. In light of the recent and established studies that have been carried out on CBD, we can say that this element has natural calming properties and the demand for products based on this cannabinoid have exponentially increased.
To answer the question whether CBD has psychotropic effects, we will explain the following: in cannabinoids there are generally two basic receptors, CB1 and CB2. In THC the CB1 receptor prevails, which has an effect on perceptions and memory (in fact, it is known that THC is a substance considered illegal because of its psychotropic effects). In CBD, the CB2 receptor is dominant and acts mainly on the immune system. In fact, it is well known that CBD can help muscle relaxation and is surprisingly effective in relieving the symptoms of various chronic disorders.
CBD and muscle recovery
Have you ever had physical activity such as jogging, swimming or climbing and then experience muscle pain for the next 1-3 days? Or were you trying to do a demonstration on how to properly throw a baseball to your son, and at that very moment, you thought, "wow, tomorrow’s gonna hurt me"? Whether you’re a sportsman, doing a heavy physical job or a sedentary job, or if you just lack the right energy during the day, CBD can help you with muscle recovery after fatigue, helping to give you that extra bit of energy.
Several CBD products contain extremely low percentages of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), to the point that its effects are null and void. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Thanks to its multiple properties, the CBD is getting more and more consensus from athletes, health and wellness lovers, who widely support the use of this element in post-fatigue recovery. So, let’s look at the big picture: CBD and muscle fatigue. What do these two things have to do with each other? The answer is simple. When we make physical efforts, whether it’s just to get in shape or because we do a heavy job, small lacerations form within our muscles. While our body works to "repair" these lacerations, very often we feel pain when we move the affected part and sometimes this pain can be unbearable. CBD, thanks to its relaxing and anti-inflammatory action, is able to relieve suffering and actively contributes to the healing of muscles, allowing our body to recover in a truly short time.
However, care must be taken to ensure that the supplier is able to guarantee the quality of the product and that he can provide a certificate of authenticity, which is drawn up on the bases and with the data of a specific test. This is essential to ensure the quality and safety of the product. So, with a trusted supplier, you won’t have to worry about accidentally slipping the dosage, since what is reported on the package corresponds to reality.
Why buy the CBD?
To answer this question, it is necessary to take into account the fact that CBD is very versatile and useful for multiple uses. We will see below two of the main reasons.
1. Promotes muscle recovery after physical exertion.
The studies carried out show (as mentioned above) that CBD is an excellent ally in post-fatigue recovery, in fact it has relaxing and anti-inflammatory properties, which promote and facilitate muscle recovery. Dr. Feuer has stated that Alex Silver-Fagan, an internationally renowned Nike Master Trainer, also regularly takes CBD oil after training precisely to help his body in the recovery phase and to relieve tension. You can also take CBD transdermally, as well as orally. In fact, more and more cosmetic products based on CBD are appearing on the market, such as creams.
2. Your appearance will also benefit
The CBD cream offers great benefits also for the skin, as well as for the muscles as we have just seen. The market offers, in fact, more and more cosmetic products based on CBD and can be found in many pharmacies or in CBD Shops. Dr. Feuer confirms this thesis, stating that CBD can be used as an aid in the treatment of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. In addition to medical application, CBD creams can be amazingly effective against skin dryness, irritation and make the skin softer and more elastic. There are also cosmetic creams based on CBD, such as eye serum, hand cream, cleansing milk and even scrub. These are just some of the many products on the market and many more will come!
