CBD for Muscle Inflammation and Post-Workout Recovery


Millions of athletes, trainers, fitness professionals and workout enthusiasts everywhere take daily supplements to support their diet and rigorous workout routines. These typically range from pre-workout energy, to intra-workout focus, and of course post-workout recovery. Because the latter usually involves pain and discomfort from muscle inflammation, fitness folk are especially conscious of reducing the time spent at this stage.

It’s no surprise then, to learn that CBD oils and other products such as infused beverages are emerging as a popular and effective post-workout supplement.

CBD for muscle pain and inflammation

Any hard workout, particularly involving weight training, causes microtears in your muscle fibers which creates soreness and fatigue. Without proper recovery, your next workout can be more difficult, and you increase the risk of further pain or injury. Many studies have shown how cannabidiol (CBD) works in concert with your body’s endocannabidioid system, impacting receptors in the central nervous system which regulate pain and inflammation.

Because CBD is easily ingested and absorbed, CBD oils or infused drinks can help reduce the inflammation and discomfort from pain quickly and effectively, thus causing less needed recovery time before your next workout.

CBD oil has anti-catabolic properties

Another big factor CBD provides in post-workout consideration, is that it regulates the amount of cortisol is released into your system. By reducing cortisol levels, muscle regeneration and protein synthesis are encouraged, allowing for recovery and growth.

CBD helps you sleep

Rest is crucial in our lives in many ways, but also for athletes and those who workout regularly. When we sleep, our bodies do a lot of work repairing themselves and allowing muscles to grow and strengthen. CBD has been shown to help you fall asleep faster, and increase the amount of quality sleep you get, which helps you wake up feeling refreshed and strong.
