CBD Oil Helps With Post Exercise Recovery. See How

Posted on October 26, 2019 by John Harris

Recovery from a strenuous workout can often be a bit of challenge. One product that some have identified as helping with recovery is CBD oil.  

CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. There has been significant research around the therapeutic uses of CBD.

CBD oils are oils that contain concentrations of CBD. The concentrations and the uses of these oils vary.

According to CBDKyro among the potential uses are helping people quit smoking and to treat heroin addiction. Some also have used it to help reduce cramping after workouts.  This article has a section in it on this topic.

The popularity of CBD tincures has been especially growing in recent years. According to DailycbdMag the excitement around CBD oil in the current market can be traced back to the story of  a child named Charlotte, who suffered from an extreme form of epilepsy.

Charlotte experience her first seizure at just three months old. Over the next few months, the seizures continued to increase and eventually she was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy that cannot be controlled by medication. At the peak of her illness, Charlotte experienced as many as 300 seizures a week, with little hope for treatment.

Eventually her parents decided to try a new treatment approach, which required a low THC, high CBD form of cannabis. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive component found in marijuana, so with it removed, Charlotte would not experience the euphoric high of marijuana.

After working with doctors and specialists to find the right dose, Charlotte went from 300 seizures per week to two or three times per month.

Of course, the benefits of CBD oils will be different for every person, especially with different goals and types of uses.

According to HealthcareWeekly, CBD oil can play a major role in reducing chronic pain. That is also a reason that it is becoming popular with athletes and people who work out regularly. Unlike other products, CBD oils seem to have negligible side effects.

While it is important to read and understand the potential impacts of CBD oils, there is growing belief that they can provide positive relief to a number of ailments and issues, which certainly make them worth investigating.
