CBD & Fitness: How CBD Can Help
With Muscle Recovery

Josh

We at fourfive are strong believers that CBD is the ideal addition for all athletes, from weekend warriors to competitive professionals.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike THC, the compound that has psychoactive effects, CBD does not have any psychoactive components. This means that it won’t make you feel any different than you normally would. CBD has a plethora of potential health benefits, including the ability to help with muscle recovery. When our muscles are tired or sore, it’s because they need time to repair themselves.

The feeling of sore muscles after a workout is called delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It is most commonly felt 24 to 48 hours after exercising. DOMS is caused by microscopic tears in the muscle fibers. As the muscle repairs these tears, the muscles become larger and stronger. The soreness associated with DOMS is a normal part of the muscle-building process.There are several ways to reduce the soreness associated with DOMS, including warming up and cooling down, exercising more regularly and using CBD. If you’re looking for a natural way to help with muscle recovery, CBD may be the answer.


How Does CBD Help With Muscle Recovery?

Our fourfive brand was born from first-hand experience with CBD products in the athletic world. Taking CBD helped our athletes with their recovery process and it can do the same for you, too. CBD is a natural supplement that interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to help restore balance and health. The ECS consists of receptors that work with enzymes to support a variety of functions and processes, including bringing your body back into balance or ‘homeostasis’.

Knowing that ECS can also be found in our skin, CBD rubs are a great product for athletes. Whether recovering from a hard workout, match day or training session, CBD may help you get through the highs and lows of an active lifestyle. Our muscle rub is infused with menthol for a cooling effect and refreshing smell.

While more research is needed to determine the exact mechanisms by which CBD promotes muscle recovery, the current evidence suggests that it may be a helpful addition to your post-workout routine.

Is CBD Legal in Sports?

As an athlete, you may be hesitant to start using CBD. You may worry about what it means for your sport or wonder if it could get you in trouble with drug tests. CBD has been removed from the World Anti Doping Agency’s (WADA) list of banned substances. This means that if you have CBD in your system, it’s not against the rules and it won’t get you penalised for sports.

CBD is also completely legal in South Africa, and users are turning to it as a natural alternative to other muscle recovery products on the market. CBD products have been found to have no lasting effect on the body or the mind, and research is proving that more and more. People are beginning to warm up to CBD because of how much it can do for you.
