CBD Muscle : Reduces Muscle Pain And Speeds Recovery
Being a successful bodybuilder takes a number of things, dedication, hard work in the gym, the right diet, some good supplements and probably the most important thing of all – getting sufficient rest to allow your muscles to fully repair and recover.
Not doing this can actually harm your results, but its one thing that many gym goers actually try and rush. Keen to get back in the gym they often ignore muscle stiffness, and joint pain, thinking they can ‘work through it’ with no adverse effects.
Bottom line is that they can’t…
Failing to let your muscles fully repair and recover after intensive workout can lead to longer term problems, and this is why this latest UK based product couldn’t have come at a better time.
CBD Oil – an extract taken from the cannabis sativa plant has been in the news quite frequently of late, and not because of the reasons that you might initially think.
We are all aware of the psychoactive effects of using certain forms of cannabis, the highs and euphoria experienced by those who smoke it.
But we are not taking about getting high here – that effect is largely caused by just one compound found in cannabis known as THC. (Tetrahydrocannabinol)
There are over 100 different compounds ( called cannabinoids) in cannabis and it is only THC that has any real effect on our moods etc.
Many of the other cannabinoids present in cannabis have some well documented health benefits, and with the THC taken out can provide some real help in the treatment of certain conditions including arthritis, epilepsy and some cancers.
CBD is one such cannabinoid, it has been shown to be highly effective at reducing joint inflammation, and soothing muscle stiffness and pain. Its little wonder that a number of forward thinking manufacturers have harnessed the muscle soothing powers of CBD and have released them for use by bodybuilders and athletes.
One company is UK based CBD Muscle, they manufacture and sell a range of 4 CBD products, all aimed at helping bodybuilders, athletes and in fact anybody with active lives to speed and improve muscle recovery.
Using a 100% legal CBD extract that is taken from industrial hemp (commonly used in textiles and the food industry) it is grown under licence, and is currently only available the UK.
Their product range is made up of two CBD oil products, a muscle soothing rub and a blend of amino acids and CBD in a powdered form that is designed to be mixed with water and drank.
Containing legally compliant trace amounts of the euphoria causing THC (less than 0.03%), these products will not get you high, instead they will provide fast relief from muscle aches and stiffness, allowing you to get back into the gym or onto the sports field faster, ultimately allowing you to get better results.
