If you’ve had a long day, CBD could provide a needed reset and promote a calm sense of well-being.

NFL players, martial arts competitors and everyday athletes have been turning to products containing CBD.

CBD is one of many natural chemicals.

“Athletes are limited by the extent to which they can train and how much time their muscles need to recover,” says Dr. Murdoc Khaleghi, an emergency medicine physician who serves as senior medical adviser for Elevate CBD. Dr Khaleghi believes CBD may have the ability to decrease pain and inflammation to help accelerate recovery.

There’s no specific research yet on how CBD can improve exercise recovery or fitness results, though there’s reason to believe it would help. If it could ease pain, why not sore muscles? There is reason to believe it could fight inflammation that occur when running, weightlifting, high-intensity interval training or other types of exercise causes?
