All people (and mammals), have an an endocannabinoid system, meaning our body can produce its own cannabinoids. It is believed that a lot of various health issues stem from an endocannabinoid deficiency, but fortunately that is an easy solution! We can simply apply/consume more cannabinoids like CBD.
So how can all of this relate to those “gym rats” and weight lifters? According to the Irish Mirror, three main issues that these athletes experience is appetite, sleep and stress, and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Typically people that work out and become sore result to taking anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen. However, Ibuprofen is showing to be more and more toxic. Many Irish gym users have begun using CBD oil to help reduce the pain from muscle soreness.
Insomnia and anxiety are often caused by increased levels of cortisol in our body. One way to decrease cortisol levels is to sleep. Not only does sleep reduce the cortisol in one’s body, but it also gives your body a chance to repair itself and recover from DOMS. As this article points out, CBD oil can dramatically improve sleep levels and decrease anxiety.
To replenish the calories that someone burns when working out, they must eat. Building muscle depends greatly on how many calories are being consumed. Many people struggle with maintaining a high enough appetite for to consume the needed calories, protein, and carbohydrates to build muscle. CBD has been shown to help promote the hormones in our body that are responsible for hunger.
Instead of consuming many harsh chemicals/compounds, many weight lifters are beginning to seek alternative methods to help them gain muscle – including CBD. As studies continue to become available to the public, it will be exciting to see how many more unknown benefits CBD and other cannabinoids actually have.
