What is CBD?

CBD is a compound produced by cannabis. It is found in both medical cannabis and industrial hemp. The difference is industrial hemp contains little to no THC. All CBD products sold in the UK come from EU-approved hemp cultivars that contain 0.2% THC or less. Strict rules and regulations require that any CBD product not contain more than 1mg of THC per bottle. 

Consumers report CBD helping them manage debilitating feelings experiences. Research has started to support this anecdotally for the most part. For example, a review of cannabinoids by Babson et al. 2017 suggests, "CBD may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia." When it comes to pain Mlost et al. 2020 states, "CBD excerpts an analgesic effect in several neuropathic pain models." Finally Atalay et al 2020 looking into the anti-inflammatory and antiviral effects of cannabinoids says, "CBD, due to its high effectiveness and reducing inflammation by activating CB2 receptors may prove useful in reducing inflammation."

Different Ways CBD Might Benefit Runners

Do you run? Are you thinking about running? If you answer yes, you already know about some of the side effects of running or you're getting ready to learn. Running is a healthy exercise that many people enjoy. It also comes with consequences. CBD isn't psychoactive meaning it's not intoxicating. Running can be. Running is known to produce something called a “runner's high.” John Hopkins Medicine says, "As you hit your stride, your body releases hormones called endorphins. Popular culture identifies these as the chemicals behind 'runners high', a short-lasting, deeply euphoric state following intense exercise."

A Few Ways Runners Might Benefit from CBD

Runners could benefit from CBD in a few different ways. Massaging CBD balms could help reduce pain and inflammation experienced by muscles after intense workouts like running. CBD may also help muscles recover faster after intense workouts by promoting blood flow and bringing much-needed oxygen to overworked muscles.

Low doses of CBD could prove beneficial in helping someone who loves to run get a good night's rest. Having a good night's rest makes achieving a good run much more possible. CBD with terpenes is also known to potentially increase someone's energy. This means consuming CBD as part of a morning routine could help invigorate the body preparing you for the day be it at work, play, or a day of running around.

Always buy CBD products reputable sources that offer certified lab test results (like us). This way you know you are getting what you paid for. The FSA suggests healthy adults only consume no more than 70mg of CBD in a 24-hour period unless otherwise directed by a physician. If you run or are thinking about starting a routine running, CBD could be the perfect companion for you.
