“Research suggests that CBD shows promise in helping relieve pain and reduce inflammation, which could be useful for athletes participating in intense exercise.”
How Athletes Are Using CBD?
CBD has been shown to reduce inflammation and could be a potential game changing supplement for athletes who train hard. World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the list of prohibited substances making CBD for athletes widely accepted.
CBD Pain Relief
Studies have shown CBD may be effective for reducing pain, including musculoskeletal pain from exercise, as well as stiff joints. So whether you are a weekend warrior or training for the olympics you may be able to see benefits in using CBD as a recovery product.
Alternative to NSAIDs
NSAIDs are over the counter medicines like ibuprofen and Tylenol. CBD for athletes may offer a pain relieving effect to reduce or eliminate an athletes use of NSAIDS for exercise-related pain, with minimal side effects.
Alternative to Opioids
According to the CDC, in 2016 opioids were involved in more than 42,000 deaths in the US. Opioid pain medications (i.e. morphine, codeine, oxycontin) are highly effective for pain management, but carry a significant risk of addiction and death by overdose. Cannabinoids are not as effective as opioids for relieving acute, high-intensity pain, but may be effective for long-term pain management – either alone or in conjunction with other medications – with far less risk of dependence or accidental death.
CBD may help reduce the response when your immune system sounds the alarm after hard workouts. This may make CBD a powerful post workout supplement,
Is CBD legal for athletes?
Yes. Starting at the beginning of 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the list of prohibited substances – in or out of competition. (Here is the 2019 WADA Prohibited List.) The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) did the same.
