A Game Changer When It Comes To Post-Workout Inflammation
When we workout and damage our muscles. Then, our bodies repair them and grow back even stronger. Inflammation comes into play during the repair process when our body increases blood flow to the affected area to replenish oxygen, fuel our muscles, and clear out waste. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, taking a regular dosage of CBD before strenuous activities help lower pain and inflammation due to extreme joint pain. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.
While inflammation is necessary to help protect the body as it heals, a state of ongoing or chronic inflammation is undesirable and can be a source of significant pain and anxiety, and is sometimes linked with depression. CBD shows potential as a plant-derived anti-inflammatory without the side effects of medications.
