CBD and Pain
CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system and has been shown to manage a wide array of symptoms including pain and inflammation. CBD acts on CB1 and CB2 receptors to decrease pain signals from the brain to the body, as well as reduce localized inflammation.
One of the most common complaints during exercise is pain. Whether it be due to an injury from years ago, daily aches and pains or chronic pain, CBD can help manage discomfort during exercise.
CBD and Recovery
If you’ve ever over-exercised a muscle group, you know that it can be an uncomfortable experience. Pain, swelling and muscle spasms are common symptoms experienced after intense exercise. CBD can help.
When CBD acts on CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, it reduces errant or overactive signals to the brain. This will reduce pain signals and muscle spasms and calm the overactive sensory system.
