Although muscle soreness is not any sort of life threatening disease, it is certainly uncomfortable. Whether it be household chores, working out, yard work, or some other activity that caused muscle soreness, it’s never a very comfortable incident. The good news is that according to research, a lot of terpenes and cannabinoids may help with relaxing muscles, and even help to alleviate muscle soreness.
Limonene: Limonene is a terpene commonly found in lemons, limes, oranges, citrus fruits, and hemp. One huge benefit of Limonene is it’s bioavailability – around 70%. This page examines what Limonene may be useful for, it’s chemical makeup, and much more. It claims that Limonene would be helpful in muscle sprains and pain.
Beta-Myrcene: Myrcene is another terpene commonly found in hemp, along with hops, lemongrass, basil, mangoes, and rosemary. While this study was not in regards to muscle tenseness, it did state, “Furthermore, myrcene acted as a muscle relaxant in mice…” Meanwhile, this article exclaims on multiple occasions how Myrcene has been found to be a muscle relaxant along with other beneficial attributes such as anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties.
The Endocannabinoid System: CBD has been studied as a therapeutic way to treat patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness). This study made the conclusion that, “We provide new insights into plant cannabinoid interactions with TRP channels in skeletal muscle, highlighting a potential opportunity for novel co-adjuvant therapies to prevent muscle degeneration in DMD patients.
Finally, another study says, “Administration of natural or synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists has shown therapeutic value for a number of important medical conditions, including pain (particularly against pain of neuropathic origin), anxiety, glaucoma, nausea, emesis, muscle spasms, and wasting diseases.”
Based on these articles, and many more with other terpenes and cannabinoids, there are a wide array of studies showing how certain cannabinoids and terpenes may help with muscle soreness, muscle relaxation, and more. It’s widely believed that full spectrum CBD products are much more beneficial and bioavailable than just taking one compound at a time. This is known as the entourage effect.
