Cannabis and fitness, the new wellness trend in the gym

The combination of cannabis and fitness is increasingly known, to the point of making the CBD a fundamental component for those who devote themselves to wellness in the gym and physical activity in general.

There is no doubt that cannabis and fitness have become an increasingly interesting combination, to the extent that the use of CBD to recover after training is a real trend. Among those interested in wellness in the gym, this substance, obtained from hemp plants, can bring a sense of relief, and the experiences of different athletes who have used it have begun to be added to the first scientific studies.

CBD, gym and recovery

Cannabis is conquering fitness lovers and, in particular, it is the CDB that attracts the attention of athletes. This molecule is one of the hundreds present in cannabis, it is different from THC by a single atom, but this subtle difference translates into a very different effect: while THC is the component we associate with “high”, CBD has a lot of properties that help improve mood after physical activity.

According to research published in Frontiers in Neurology, entitled “Cannabidiol to Improve Mobility in People with Multiple Sclerosis,” researchers Thorsten Rudroff and Jacob Sosnoff have found that CBD actually reduces inflammation in the body. In addition, this substance would be antioxidant, antiemetic, antipsychotic and neuroprotective, as the authors specify in the review.

For all these reasons, the cannabis molecule is increasingly appreciated in the gym, to the point that in some countries of the world have already emerged courses that combine a style of intense stretching with CBD patches of gradual release. The combination could be very interesting for some sportsmen, although the researchers recommend the continuation of the studies to evaluate, in a complete and objective way, the impact of this molecule in our organism.
