Why Do Athletes Choose CBD Over The Rest?

Written by Dr. Leah Zachar

CBD medicinal extracts can be used in a variety of ways, whether to treat chronic pain, cancer symptoms or just for wellness purposes. But why do so many athletes choose over the rest?

1. CBD helps with inflammation

Every day because of playing, athletes get injured and develop inflammation.
By taking CBD oil before the game, inflammation as a result of injuries sustained, can be reduced.

2. CBD helps with pain relief

You have to have a clear head when you play for high stakes.
Many pain killers, such as opioids, make you less focused – which is not good when you play to win.

3. CBD reduces pain, so you can focus on the game

CBD reduces game-day stress & anxiety.
Performance anxiety is real.
Even the best-trained players can freeze.
CBD eliminates this.
And all the practice you’ve done becomes worth it.

4. CBD helps you sleep

CBD inhibits REM sleep which results in increased stage 4 sleep.
This is the sleep when the healing of injuries occur.
Better sleep = faster healing times.
And a cleared and more relaxed state of mind.

5. CBD speeds up your recovery time

CBD reduces the inflammation from sports injuries & speeds up fracture healing – and with stronger bones than before the break.

6. CBD decreases the damage caused by traumatic brain injuries

In a three-year study, researchers found that out of 446 patients who had suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) about 97% of those who had previously used CBD prior to the event survived the TBI as compared to 88% of those patients who did not use CBD.

CBD gives athletes the extra “edge” over the competition to help them with the game. And it will do the same for you.
