CBD for Athletes: CBD Pre-Workout & CBD Post-Workout Usage
What is CBD for Athletes?
Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that is showing signs of significant benefits. CBD does not contain the cannabis compound THC that is known for being psychoactive. Research and historical information are showing that CBD-rich cannabis is an appealing option for athletes looking for relief without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
The FDA is not allowing any positive statements in regards to the benefits of CBD as it is currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
How Does CBD Work?: CBD and the Body
Before making the decision to buy NEURO XPF ™ oil, we strongly recommend you to take the time to learn more about CBD and to get familiar with the numerous benefits on the human body. Due to the “CANS” and “CAN’TS” the FDA has placed on all CBD product companies, we can’t say anything regarding the benefits of CBD. CBD’s effects inside the body
CBD or cannabidiol is an active compound in the hemp plant. Inside the human body there’s an endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body. CBD indirectly effects the CB1 and CB2 receptors, along with directly effecting other receptors found through out the body.
CBD does not directly effect the CB1 and CB2 receptors; instead, it activates other receptors, like the vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors. By activating the TRPV-1 receptor for example, cannabidiol plays a role in the mediation of body temperature, pain perception and inflammation. Then, CBD inhibits the FAAH enzyme, a compound that activates the CB1 receptor. By doing so, CBD minimizes the activation of CB1 by THC, reducing its psychoactive effects.
The activation of adenosine receptors by CBD gives the anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabidiol. Adenosine receptors are also involved in the release of dopamine and glutamate, two neurotransmitters that play major roles inside the body. Dopamine is involved in cognition, motor control, motivation and reward mechanisms, while glutamate is one of the major mediators of excitatory signals, being involved in memory, learning and cognition.
High concentrations of CBD have been shown to activate the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor, exerting anti-depressant effects. The same receptor is involved in a series of processes from pain perception to sleep and addiction mechanisms.
Finally, CBD blocks CPR55 signaling, and is widely present inside the brain, being linked with the modulation of bone density and more.
As previously said, CBD blocks the psychoactive action of THC, this being one of the reasons it’s generally considered advantageous to combine CBD and THC when for treatment purposes. However, the positive effects of cannabidiol are not dependent on the presence of THC, so you can still take advantage of the health benefits of CBD by purchasing products that contain only non-psychoactive CBD.
All Sports, All Athletes
Athletic associations and individual fitness fanatics are excited about the potential of CBD (cannabidiol). Science research is rediscovering what history has know for some time, Hemp-based CBD is helpful to athletes. When properly taken, CBD derived from hemp protects the brain’s neurological function and improves healing speed after concussive injuries. NEURO XPF provides high-quality CBD to assist in reducing athletic injuries while improving the healing process so you can get back to whatever game you love.
