CBD for athletes

How CBD can 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 it is really helpful for sportspeople who participate in particularly strenuous exercise and activities. CBD doesn’t result in a ‘high’, preventing the potential for misuse and dependence. It’s a great supplement for sportspeople in everyday life.

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

Some properties of CBD aid in strengthening and supporting the body’s immune system. This helps 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 daily 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 is by far one of the most important benefits of using CBD, as sleep is important not only to aid body recovery and repair and renew body cells, but it is also good fuel for a healthy mind and your general well-being. CBD properties help our bodies 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.
