How can CBD help you to maximise your Sport and Training performance?

In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the list of prohibited substances for professional athletes, including the international athletics federation. They recognised that CBD has multiple positive effects on the body compared to substances like THC.

Research has shown that CBD can aid in pain management and relief, therefore its massively helpful for Sport’s people who participate in particularly strenuous exercise and activities.  CBD doesn’t result in a ‘high’, it prevents the potential for misuse and dependence, so can provides a great supplement for sportspeople as well as everyday life.

CBD doesn’t possess any psychoactive properties. Using a CBD isolate product provider – such as the Plantinum, rather than a full-spectrum product, meaning the product won’t cause you to test positive for TCH, resulting in no violation of the anti-doping legislation.

Some properties of CBD aid in strengthening the body’s immune system. This will help reduce the risk of you contracting an illness before your next big sporting event and promoting general improvement in health and well-being. Your body will also be more resistant to stress, a benefit not just limited to your sports life but every aspect of your life. If you do become injured or sick, another potential benefit of CBD is that it is known to increase recovery speed, meaning you can get back to exercise and sporting activities quicker. Sleep by far is one of the most important benefits of using CBD, as sleep is important not only to aid body recovery, repair and body cell renewal but a good fuel for a healthy mind and our general well-being. CBD properties help aid our body to naturally relax and rest.

There are several different methods of administering CBD to your body. We recommend rubbing a balm or lotion onto your skin after high-level exercise to encourage pain-relief and relieve aching muscles and tissue. CBD sprays or oils can give you a quick boost to your energy level before or during exercise, which can allow you to push that little bit further. On the other hand, the sprays also have a relaxant element, so if administered before bed, allows for a longer, well-rested sleep to again promote recovery of both body and mind. Plantinum offers a broad range of CBD products, including all mentioned above and great range of edibles.

We recommend allowing your body time to get used to CBD before using it for your next big match or marathon. Starting at a lower dosage and working your way up whilst monitoring your body’s reactions will allow you to find the right dosage for you – everyone’s body is different. You should also check with your doctor if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are taking any other form of medication.   For all advice and support contact the Plantinum team today.
