CBD and the Active Lifestyle: Rev Up Your Recovery

Whether you lift weights, stretch out in downward dog, or simply enjoy a daily stroll with the dog, muscles and joints are bound to take a hit. Even if that hit comes from the inevitable that everyone tries to hide from: aging.

CBD can benefit every muscle and every joint, whether you’re a professional athlete or just a muscle monger.

CBD has taken the world of sports by storm.There is a growing number of professional athletes utilizing and endorsing CBD oil tinctures, topicals, and other products based on this humble cannabinoid.

And if we look at the benefits of CBD, especially full-spectrum CBD imbued with a host of bolstering terpenes, it’s easy to understand why so many athletes would be happy to endorse CBD brands.

CBD for Short and Long Term Recovery

While there are no quick fixes, CBD oil and topicals infused with cannabinoids and other botanical ingredients have been shown to ease aching muscles and joints. CBD possesses anti-inflammatory qualities that can help with muscle recovery.

CBD for Short and Long Term Recovery
CBD is beneficial for long-term muscle health as well as short term relief. Cannabidiol helps those who work out by offering relief post-workout and supports joints and muscles in the long run. Strength training works by tearing the muscle tissue, which is called micro-tearing. This micro-tearing requires repairing, and this when the pain can set in.

But, this pain is sometimes welcomed by those who know that the gain comes with the pain, the muscles strengthen and build. This is when CBD, terpenes, and cannabinoids can get to work. The immune cells receive a signal to repair the damage, and they release inflammatory mediators to repair the micro-tears. However, this can be painful. Cannabinoids and terpenes, and more importantly their combination together, regulates these inflammatory responses. The pain can be minimized while supporting healing without compromising the ‘gain.’

Why CBD for Sports?

CBD reduces pain associated with muscle gain and helps support long-term muscle and joint health. How else can CBD benefit everyday sportsmen and women?

Reduce stress
Every athlete has to deal with stress, which is the mental tension that goes hand in hand with muscle tension. Stress can be helpful for motivation, but there is a fine line between inspiration to do something and crippling pressure.

● Improve Sleep
CBD can help to improve sleep quality, which is essential for physical recovery.

● Relieve Anxiety
CBD, terpenes, and cannabinoids can be an ideal power formula for those grappling with anxiety. Whether the anxiety comes from pre-race jitters, or just everyday stress, CBD can ease anxiety and support overall wellness.

● Support Natural Systems
CBD encourages balance within the body and supports natural processes by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The ECS plays a pivotal role in the body by maintaining homeostasis and regulates most of the body’s major functions.

Understanding the Entourage Effect

Why is the entourage effect so, well, effective? The entourage effect is defined by the synergistic combination of compounds within the cannabis plant to enhance and influence the positive effects of all the compounds.

But why stop at full spectrum? Specific terpene and cannabinoid profiles ensure that the product is specifically formulated to result in specific effects. Enter, the TLC profiles from Green Revolution.

Green Revolution’s Entourage and standardization profiles: TLC Profiles

The CBD cannabinoid has certainly taken center stage, but we shouldn’t forget about the supporting cast that catapults CBD into the spotlight. Cannabinoids and terpenes all have unique effects on the body, but intelligent designs such as Green Revolution’s TLC formulations help to combine the best terpenes and cannabinoids for the desired effects.

 

The entourage effect was initially coined by the heroes of cannabis research in Israel[2] , and Green Revolution’s TLC (terpenes, love, and cannabinoids) designs ensure that each product is crafted with precise blends of CBD and other compounds that consistently produce predictable, reliable results.
