Physical wellbeing, for an athlete, is a matter of top priority. The rigors of maintaining high performance and training put a lot of strain on their bodies. Injuries and pain leaves an athlete in a state of wear and tear, not only physically but also emotional. Consequently, an athlete wriggles in pain or lacks confidence. For these reasons, an athlete needs all the care that conventional and alternative health can provide. Here is what you need to know about CBD.

  1. CBD Oil is not on the list of banned substances

As from the beginning of 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) removed CBD from their list of banned substances. The authorities also set the allowed threshold of THC in any urinary sample to be 150 nanograms per milliliter. This high testing threshold puts the athlete at low risk of testing positive for THC.

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the many chemicals compounds classified under Cannabinoids. It occurs naturally in cannabis plants. Even though THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), banned in many countries is also found in the plant, CBD is permitted in many countries. Marijuana contains both THC and CBD compounds. However, they have different effects, depending on how it was synthesized; CBD oil can contain trace or no traces of THC. If it were synthesized from the type of hemp used to make fabric, there would be less the 0.3 % THC content.

  1. CBD oil is applicable in different ways

With each day, we discover many new CBD products in the market. At the website CBDTrust, you can find more ways you can incorporate CBD Oil products to your regimen. For an athlete, it is important to source your products wisely and use them in a way that reduces assimilation of even trace elements of THC. Nonetheless, CBD oil can come in various forms listed below; all geared to get to the root of an athlete’s troubles.

  • Capsules and pills.
  • You can inhale it as a vapor.
  • Inhaling as a vapor
  • Infuse into sports drinks (any drinks even coffee)
  • All types of edibles
  • Topical creams
  • Lotions and salves
  • Tinctures and drops
  1. CBD Oil Reduces pain and inflammation

Pain and inflammation can also be a stifling factor when it comes to sports at any level. It can make movement hard, reduce concentration, or strike an athlete out of the competition.CBD’s action on pain receptors is a sure way of dealing with pain and inflammation. Moreover, it encourages the growth of skeletal and muscle tissues.

  1. CBD Oil Offers an Alternative to Opioids and NSAID’s

Opioids like morphine, codeine, and oxycodone are the widely used types of medication used in pain management. However, tolerance usually occurs to these drugs and death by overdose has been reported. CBD may not be as effective at managing sharp pains or offer as opioids in delivering quick alleviation of pain and inflammation. However, CBD is excellent for long-term therapy, without the side effects that conventional painkillers bring. This, therefore, gives athletes freedom from reliance on medication.

Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen are the go-to drugs in pain management’s therapy, which most athletes use. They carry risks like tolerance, renal damage, immune-suppression, or lead to psychological problems. For some athletes, this has made the adoption of CBD a way of managing pain. In some cases, CBD therapy has completely replaced the use of USAID’s.

  1. CBD oil promotes Quality Sleep and reduces anxiety
