Athletes can legally consume CBD, but what is it, what does it actually do, and why you should use it? For starters, cannabinoids already exist in your body. Scientists have identified what they call the endocannibinoid system (ECS) that regulates the activity of neurons. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found naturally in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, which is also found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. Studies have shown that CBD is effective in reducing exercise-induced pain as well as joint stiffness.
The main purpose of the ECS seems to be to maintain homeostasis, which it does by keeping neurotransmitter levels under control. CBD usage could be seen as supplementing or augmenting the activity of the body's existing endocannabinoid system. As an athlete, you apply greater stress to your body, which causes greater pain and inflammation than your endocannabinoid system can handle. The addition of exogenous CBD can help this overloaded system regain control of its neurotransmitters and help athletes maintain homeostasis.

What are the benefits of CBD Oil for athletes?
Some of the most important effects of CBD for athletes include: Sleeping better: CBD promotes sleep without modifying its architecture as can happen with drugs that help us sleep. Having a good rest is one of the most important aspects in the recovery of an athlete. Muscle recovery: Recent studies suggest that CBD can reduce pre- and post-exercise inflammation. These anti-inflammatory benefits can help speed recovery, improve your workout and prevent muscle soreness. Pain relief: Cannabis has great pain-relieving properties. Many athletes use CBD after training to help manage muscle and joint pain or from previous injuries they may have suffered. Reduction of muscle spasms: Cannabinoids are known to have antispasmodic properties and CBD oil can help reduce these spasms.
