Why People Are Using CBD for Relief After Physical Activity
People today seem to be more interested in health and wellness products that target the cause of their discomfort rather than managing or masking symptoms. This is may be why many people are turning to holistic treatments over pharmaceutical options that fill up store shelves. With growing interest for plant-sourced solutions, adults of all ages are turning to CBD for relief.
In addition, research investigating how hemp-derived CBD works and what it does has been going on for decades. Although most evidence supporting the possible health and wellness benefits are based on animal tests, preliminary trials and the testimony of CBD users, the positive outcomes have set a great foundation for the future.
What Is CBD?
CBD otherwise known as cannabidiol, is the most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp. It is considered a natural remedy used for many common ailments.
It is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it will not get you high. This quality is an appealing option for those who are looking for a holistic way for possible relief from pain, inflammation, and anxiety. Some even say it helps with with sleep.
Hemp-derived CBD comes from the buds / flowers and the leaves of the hemp plant; not to be confused with the oil that comes from the seeds. The seeds of the hemp plant do not contain CBD or other cannabinoids, although that is where hemp seed oil comes from.
When the industry was first getting started, many people were initially hesitant to try CBD for relief. A considerable amount of people had concerns about using a product derived from cannabis. Through education and people taking the leap to try CBD products, the industry has started to remove the negative stigma and gain mainstream acceptance.
How Does CBD Work?
The primary reason why hemp-derived CBD may provide overall wellness is because it is directly connected to the Endocannabinoid System.
CBD fits into the receptors of this system, promoting development and healing to neurotransmitters that are worn down due to stress or inflammation. CBD can help regulate this system and the processes involved with homeostasis, which is the internal balance required for survival. When your body has internal or external forces that disrupt this balance, homeostasis kicks in to bring your body back to center. Since your Endocannabinoid system helps regulate everything from mood, perception of pleasure and pain, the benefits of using CBD can possibly help your body function more effectively and maintain overall wellness.

How Does This Apply To Physical Activity?
When it comes to physical activity, CBD can help restore neurotransmitters that are damaged due to the stress put on them during a work out. CBD products have the potential to bring forth balance and comfort to this inflammation and can help reduce pain, swelling, etc.
Can Everyone Use CBD?
Hemp-derived CBD is generally well-tolerated and considered safe for most people. Since everyone’s body chemistry is different, the only way to know how you might feel after using CBD is to simply try it. CBD products can be used daily or as needed. However, people find best results with daily use as it can take time for your system to fully respond and heal.
Although, just like any other health and wellness product you might consider using, side effects are always possible. If you have health concerns or take medication, it is recommended to talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
