More and more professionals are recognizing CBD as a potential supplement for a variety of conditions - including inflammation and pain. Athletes are looking for pain-managing alternatives to opiates that are non-addictive, natural, and plant-based: that do not have the drastic and negative side-effects that often come with pharmaceutical drugs.
One of the best advocates for the power of CBD (Cannabidiol) - a non-psychotropic cannabinoid that can be found in cannabis/hemp - are players in the National Football Leage (NFL).
From The Cannabist:
“Cannabis has been proven to be effective for managing pain, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has held a patent since 2003 that suggests some non-psychoactive cannabinoids may work as neuroprotectants that could be used to treat Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases. Washington and other former players — a group that includes Jake Plummer, Eugene Monroe, Leonard Marshall and Jim McMahon — have called on the NFL and its Players Association to fund research into cannabis’ potential as a treatment for long-term brain injuries linked to football, especially chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the disease linked to the suicides of football stars Junior Seau and Dave Duerson.”
Another groups of advocates can be found in the MMA community. In 2018, the governing board of the Olympics - the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its banned substances list. For UFC athletes in 2018, this means that they can use CBD without the fear of trouble. From Bloody Elbow, “Several studies have shown promise when it comes to the use of CBD for pain relief, especially for chronic pain.” As more people try CBD as an alternative, and as more research validates the potential of CBD, more and more athletes will review it as a potential for pain-mitigation.
All humans have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that works synergistically with all the other systems of the body and is linked to inflammation, pain, anxiety, mood, sleep, and appetite. Between stress, environmental factors, and diet, our bodies can stop producing the endocannabinoids (produced inside of us) that we need naturally - this is called “Endocannabinoid Deficiency”. Supplementing with a high-quality phytocannabinoid (cannabinoids from plants) product may help with a person’s overall nervous system and immune system function - this can lead to pain reduction, improvement in mood and sleep, and corresponding beneficial health effects.
