Athletes Consuming Medical Marijuana
CBD is continuing to grow in popularity as an effective treatment option for many medical marijuana patients in Ohio. If you are not familiar with what CBD or Cannabidiol is, it’s a non-intoxicating cannabinoid derived from Cannabis sativa. CBD has many superpowers such as its ability to relieve anxiety, reduce inflammation, relieve muscle pain or stiffness, and so much more. So how does it work to assist athletes?
Athletes that use CBD routinely have reported quickened recovery times, better sleep, and less muscle pain. A recent study revealed that CBD could help alleviate inflammatory pain associated with damaged tissue and neuropathic pain caused by nerve damage or irritation. This is particularly advantageous for endurance athletes that are enduring repetitive, long-distance workouts that can cause inflammation and irritation in peripheral nerves.
Studies of Medical Marijuana & GI Tract
The study also revealed CBD’s ability to protect against gastrointestinal damage. When the GI tract is stressed, it can negatively affect athletic performance and recovery times if athletes experience nausea or vomiting. CBD can help athletes by reducing tissue damage and restore the permeability of the intestine.
Sports anxiety is another problem majority of athletes face. Performance anxiety can lead to sleep loss, hindering their nutritional intake, and overall energy loss. CBD helps athletes by relieving anxiety in stressful situations.
