Have you used CBD for RECOVERY?
Even if you are a pretty strong person, do you feel yourself feeling sore and fatigued after workouts? Depending on what type of exercise training you are doing, sometimes we can feel sore for days. That’s because, as the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) explains, working out causes microscopic damage to muscle fibers. The muscles can become inflamed, sore and stiff from the torn muscle fibers. CBD for recovery can be a solution.
What Causes Soreness After Intense workouts?
Inflammation is what we experience when muscles are damaged. Muscles can take a while to heal if they become too fatigued to heal. Using a supplement, like CBD, can be effective to reduce the inflammation and start the repair quickly.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. In addition, the cannabis plant has a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Both CBD and THC have important therapeutic benefits. However, unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “high” or intoxicated. (Project CBD)
Can CBD be a pre and post supplement?
If you consume protein powders as a supplement for recovery, CBD can easily be added to your routine. CBD can be taken to replenish the energy lost and to help in muscle recovery. It’s worth giving CBD a try as it can be more powerful than all these post-workout supplements when it comes to fast muscle recovery and reduction of fatigue.
Will CBD for recovery replace Ibuprofen or Advil?
A lot of people are unaware or ignore the expose to taking these NSAIDs. In fact, the deaths that are as a result of taking NSAID drugs are countless. Can you believe Advil or ibuprofen is considered a drug and even kids consume these harmful substances? Just think about what this is doing to the liver and every cell in the body. Thankfully, CBD does not have any side effects, it just allows the body to heal.
According to the Men’s Health magazine, CBD is also said to help with smaller stuff, like helping you recover faster from workouts thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
“As a personal trainer and someone that works out every day and really pushes myself a lot, I noticed the biggest difference in inflammation and stress after a workout,” Tara Laferrara, a former sprinter and a NASM certified personal trainer, told MensHealth.com about her personal use of CBD.
Is there any scientific research?
“Broadly speaking, it does decrease inflammation when it’s rubbed on muscles as an ointment or taken orally,” Dr. Perry Solomon, previous chief medical officer and founding member of HelloMD, told MensHealth.com.
Where should I get some CBD?
The FDA doesn’t regulate CBD for recovery, so it is possible to buy a product that is more or less potent than advertised. It’s important to research each brand before choosing a safe brand to use. In addition, make sure to look for 3rd party testing to make sure the CBD is free from harmful fillers.

How do I go about using CBD for recovery?
CBD can be taken orally under the tongue before and after a workout. We suggest to start out slow with just a few drops held under the tongue for 30-60 seconds. When you feel comfortable with a few drops, slowly increase till you reach your desired result.
