3 Reasons Athletes Are Using CBD To Maximize Results

What is CBD and why are athletes taking such an interest in it?!

Simply put, CBD can be viewed as an ultimate and sacred superfood — Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many beneficial and non-psychotropic cannabinoids found in high concentrations in hemp plants. A superfood is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial to consume as part of a balanced diet because of its ability to support a healthy body and improved well-being.

High-performing athletes across the world are using pure hemp-derived CBD to support their training and performance.  Sports scientists are tracking results, and the data is affirming the hypothesis that regular consumption of pure hemp-derived CBD has a unique ability to support the body’s vital systems and, as a result, can operate to promote mental clarity, vitality, improved energy levels, health, and overall well-being.

    1. CBD Is Observed to Support Sleep Quality*. Sleep gives your body’s central nervous system and muscles time to recover. When the body’s natural recovery and growth process are functioning smoothly, muscles are able to heal and repair from the impacts of training. Sleep deprivation and interrupted sleep patterns are thought to cause an increase in cortisol—a.k.a “stress hormone”—levels in the body. Increased cortisol levels in the body may lead to an increase in adipose tissue (fat gain), muscle weakness, and other training and health problems. It is no secret that athletes can improve training output by optimizing sleep patterns. Hemp Optix CBD is a great tool for those interested in improving their sleep quality!

    2. CBD Is Observed to Support Management of Muscle Inflammation*. One of the most studied uses of CBD…and a primary reason many athletes are consuming CBD as a part of their daily nutrition plan…is the leading research showing CBD’s ability to impact and reduce muscle inflammation. Managing muscle inflammation is a critical component in a “post-workout” environment; why else would professional athletes sit in a freezing ice bath after intense exercise?! CBD is a quick and trustworthy addition to any training and nutritional plan. Because every element of post-workout nutrition is important, the CBD at Hemp Optix is suspended in high-quality oils/fats, such as organic MCT oil and Hempseed oil.

    3. CBD Is Observed to Support Improved Energy Levels*. Wait, didn’t you just say CBD can improve sleep quality? And now you are saying that CBD’s impact on the body has also been observed to support energy levels?! Let’s unpack this a bit further… CBD helps the body to achieve rest and maintain homeostasis by working with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and central nervous system (CNS). By supporting the body’s systems that operate to restore itself during sleep, CBD can help our bodies be in a prime position to generate increased output and energy levels.
