Athletes are no strangers to pain, whether that be the day-to-day pain that comes from high-level training or the more dangerous and event-driven pain that comes about when an injury is incurred. And while athletes and trainers are generally well-versed on the traditional methods of treating pain, they’re always looking for new options and ways to help themselves, as well as to give themselves a leg up on the competition.
One of the newest and most promising pain treatment methods is non-invasive, completely natural, and has few side effects. It’s low-priced, easy to access in many places, and can be administered by the patient themselves. Interested? Well, if so, this new product is CBD, or cannabidiol, an extract from cannabis plants that is completely natural and has been shown by a growing body of research to be a potent natural fighter of pain and inflammation.
Up until now, athletes had largely relied on NSAIDs, injected anti-inflammatories, or more aggressive methods to treat pain. But all of these come with significant drawbacks and don’t necessarily address root causes of the issue. However, CBD has none of these issues, and it’s becoming more and more prevalent – the notoriously strict World Anti-Doping Agency has even recently cleared it for use by athletes worldwide.
Recovering after a tough day at the gym might be as simple as skipping pills and using CBD. #HealthStatus
