CBD for athletes (like these daily nano softgels to help you recover quicker or this sweat resistant salve stick to soothe the aches and pains) has become a popular topic in locker rooms and gyms as a safe alternative to pain medications. Not only because it is non-psychoactive and not addictive, but also due to CBD’s effectiveness in supporting health and wellness among athletes. The damage to the human body from competition and exercise comes in various forms. From the oxidation of cells to the subtle tearing of the muscles, your body is put to the test after years of activity. 

The antioxidant properties of cannabinoids can help prevent this oxidation, and their analgesic and anti-inflammatory characteristics have been proven to assist with the soreness and pain of overexertion. For Athletes, having safe and effective methods of relief and muscle recovery can mean the world to their growth. Many have cried out stating they are sick of taking Opioids and prescription pills as it may mask their pain, but leaves them feeling weighted down, unhealthy and in some cases can cause addiction. 

When our bodies are taken to their limits time and time again, it is important to take correct steps to promote overall health and wellness. When you are subjected to taking Opioids or prescription pills on the daily it is very hard to fully promote wellness, as you are putting your liver and kidneys at risk. CBD promotes wellness, and has been demonstrated to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that are now effectively being applied to sports medicine.
