Cyclists are always looking for ways to enhance performance and increase recovery time. Both amateur and professional athletes are now looking to CBD as a means to achieve these results.
Many cyclists claim cannabidiol is great for their chosen sport, saying CBD relaxes their muscles and acts as an anti-inflammatory to help with muscle repair and renewal. And some scientific studies agree. In fact, studies have shown that CBD has had a positive effect on groups of people wanting a cure for active pain, arthritis and muscle spasms: ailments associated with cyclists across the globe.
After a long ride, everything feels tight, achy and downright sore; So it’s no surprise that cyclists might be looking for options to help mitigate some of the physical demands of the sport. So why CBD?
Benefits of CBD for Cycling
CBD is one of dozens of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Its potential health benefits come from its ability to directly influence the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps maintain nervous system stability and interacts with neurotransmitters.
Active users of CBD say it helps manage stress before a competition. (Take a look at our reviews here for personal testimonials.) Performance anxiety before an important race can negatively impact an athlete’s ability to compete. Not only will alleviating stress help take the edge off before a race, but finding new ways to relax and recover can also improve an athlete’s ability to get a good night’s sleep and decrease inflammation as well as muscle soreness.
Which CBD Product is Right for You?
CBD comes in many forms and administered in multiple ways, most of which don’t involve smoking (which cyclists try to steer clear of). An easy place to start is with an ingestible dosage or a topical cream for sore joints. Be patient and take the recommended dose on the bottle. If you don’t feel the effects after a week or so, try increasing the dose the next time you take CBD. But remember, for CBD to make the correct impact on your body, it needs to be used in your daily routine, this is because CBD compounds in your body over time.
Some find the combination of a small amount of THC with CBD is exactly what they need to relax after a long day of cycling. This is where a full-spectrum CBD may come in useful.
Full Spectrum Oil is an oil rich in CBD but also contains low levels of other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC and THC. Full Spectrum Oil usually tests at around 75%-90% CBD and must test at less than .3% THC.
For those cyclists (and all athletes) worried about passing a drugs test, a CBD Isolate may be best to use. Why? There is always a risk of failing a drug test. Our Isolate CBD products contain 0% THC. The CBD isolate we use here at lost range.® is tested at 99.99% CBD. Our Full Spectrum CBD products contain less than .3% THC and contains other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG and CBC.
