Cannabidiol (CBD) is now being researched as a post workout tool, as well as a muscle building “supplement”. Anabolic supplements (steroids) are used to promote muscle growth. Anti-catabolic supplements help to reduce the production of catabolic hormones that cause rapid muscle loss and strength. So, how can CBD help people looking to gain muscle?
explains that CBD is both anabolic and anti-catabolic! Studies have shown that CBD actually decreases the level of plasma cortisol levels within the human body. Cortisol has been shown to hinder muscle growth in the body. This study
shows how drastic the impact of CBD is for decreasing these cortisol levels. The study basically concludes that CBD interferes with cortisol secretion. Now that we understand how CBD can help build muscle, what about post workout?
CBD arguably has more of an impact on people recovering from workouts! Dozens, or hundreds, of studies show that CBD has large amounts of anti-inflammatory properties. If our muscles are inflamed, they will feel sore. If we reduce the inflammation, a lot of the pain can diminish as well. Although this study
is related specifically to arthritis, it also shows how well transdermal CBD can reduce inflammation. In most situations, when there is pain, there is inflammation.
After a long workout, it is important to sleep, not only so our muscles have recovery time, but also because we will then have the energy to workout the following day. This study
shows how CBD can have an amazing impact on the sleep-wake cycle.
Whether you are looking to build muscle, or recover from a workout, CBD may be right for you! Sleep and inflammation are very important post workout, and CBD may provide you with the perfect all-natural alternative for your post-workout routine. CBD may also help gym rats build more muscle, maintain more muscle, and lower their cortisol levels!
