In the last few years, broad spectrum CBD burst onto the athletic scene at an astounding rate. A decade ago, products such as CBD salve were rare. You could only buy them in states with legal medical marijuana. Today, hemp is right at everyone’s fingertips and just a few taps away online. As it became more widely available and mainstream, many professional and amateur athletes’ testimonials arose on the benefits and relief that hemp offered them. Conclusive scientific studies are still in-progress. However, early evidence shows that thanks to the cannabidiol effect, broad spectrum CBD may provide many potential benefits that can help athletes perform better and recover faster.

 

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

CBD is a molecule found within the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant, or Cannabis sativa, is the overarching term for the plant that produces all hemp, CBD, and marijuana products. The distinction between the different types of cannabis plants determines their legality, benefits, and use. Cannabis plants contain a combination of cannabinoids such as:

  • CBD, or cannabidiol
  • THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol
  • Terpenes, such as limonene

In total, scientists have identified over 150 cannabinoids and terpenes within the cannabis plant. CBD is known to be one of the most beneficial and common cannabinoids, and is the main beneficial molecule extracted from hemp plants. CBD binds with natural receptors in your body. While scientists are still studying the effects, preliminary studies and testimonials are showing promise in many areas.

In 2018, the US Government decriminalized industrial hemp with a THC content of less than 0.3%. However, broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD salve are not legal in all states. Full spectrum CBD oil has up to the legal limit of THC and also contains beneficial terpenes. Broad spectrum CBD contains no THC, and is great for anyone who is not comfortable with small amounts of THC.

The Cannabidiol Effect

CBD works by binding with the natural cannabinoid receptors in your body’s endocrine system. Everyone is born with these receptors, and our bodies actually make cannabinoids on their own. CBD mimics these natural cannabinoids, and fits perfectly into the receptors in the endocrine system. Once bound, CBD causes the body to send hormonal signals throughout the body. Again, the benefits of CBD are yet to be conclusively proven, but scientific research and testimonials claim that CBD might be:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Pain relieving
  • Regenerative
  • Anti-viral/anti-bacterial

It is easy to imagine the numerous potential benefits that those properties can offer to athletes. When taken on a regular basis or as needed, CBD may assist with preventing serious injury, improve energy and endurance, and help athletes recover from activity and/or energy.

How To Take CBD

Whether you are using broad spectrum CBD or full spectrum CBD, you can find a variety of products to fit your needs. CBD oil or capsules        can be taken daily, and CBD roll on can be applied directly to the area of issue. How much CBD to take depends on your pain level, your weight, and your intended results.
