What you want to know about CBD and Fitness

CBD supplements are being used to help with a long list of ailments and conditions. Their meteoric rise in popularity is undeniable. Quite recently, they have been making waves in the health and fitness community. Tons of professional athletes all over the world have begun using CBD to aid their training regimen. But how effective is CBD for fitness?  

CBD and Muscle Building 

Cortisol is a hormone released in the body at times of stress. At high levels, it can break down muscle tissue and even lower bone density. For those that are training to gain lean mass, this can be counterproductive. That’s where CBD comes in. Studies have indicated that through its interaction with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), cortisol secretion can be effectively decreased. This helps to keep the body in an anti-catabolic state and optimizes protein synthesis. 

CBD and Stamina 

Anandamide is known as the body’s very own painkiller and antidepressant. CBD can help to inhibit its breakdown within the body through the ECS. Sustained levels of the so-called “bliss molecule” creates a noticeably calm, pain-free state, equivalent to the “runner’s high.” This sort of impact can be helpful in pushing through a grueling routine and demolishing plateaus. Some studies have indicated that CBD is also able to increase energy levels by strengthening individual body cells. It’s no wonder an increasing number of marathon runners are integrating CBD into their routines. 

CBD and Recovery 

When you work out, you’re essentially breaking down the body so that it can build back up stronger than before.  Inflammation helps to jumpstart the body’s recovery process; however, in excess, it may increase chances of injury and hinder mobility. Many athletes claim that through the ECS there are anti-inflammatory properties, which seems to vastly improve recovery time. CBD helps the ECS and can be ingested through regular means or can even be applied topically, in order to focus on a particular area.  

Scientific support 

Even with overwhelming testimonies from athletes and fitness enthusiasts worldwide, there is still no definitive research that helps to validate many of the claims of CBD for fitness. It seems that for the most part, the medical community receives more support for drugs regulated by the FDA, over the highly resourceful hemp plant. Admittedly, a lack of funding and uncertain legality have been major hindrances to the research of CBD from a scientific level.  

Amazingly enough, these obstacles have done little to thwart the CBD craze worldwide. This increased awareness of the hemp plant’s untapped potential has likely been a factor in the shift towards more leniency. Recently, hemp was recategorized from a schedule I drug, to an agricultural commodity. This monumental move opens up avenues for further analysis that was not previously feasible. Though science seems to be lagging behind, this has not stopped many fitness enthusiasts from incorporating CBD as an integral part of their supplements.
