CBD for athletes: Research and benefits.

Dominic Day, George Kruis, Nate Diaz, Megan Rapinoe, James Haskel, Megan Rapinoe, Lamar Odom and Rob Gronkowski are some of the current and former professional athletes from many sports who are endorsing the use of cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD.

CBD is one of more than 105 different cannabinoids found naturally in the cannabis plant. Although research on CBD has been ongoing for only a few years due to historical legality, it shows great promise in the treatment of a number of conditions associated with sports competition, such as joint pain, inflammation, muscle pain and stress.

CBD has many of the same potential benefits as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but without the psychoactive effects. Based on what we know today, here's why athletes across the sports world are taking to CBD and what you should know about it.

CBD is a non-psychoactive treatment for pain

A significant scientific research suggests that CBD shows promise in helping to relieve pain and reduce inflammation, which could be useful for athletes involved in intense exercise. Although THC can also be used to treat pain, it may cause unwanted side effects and could affect athletic performance.

A study carried out in 2004 in laboratory rats suggests that THC may impair short-term memory, whereas CBD does not appear to do so.

And a report The World Health Organisation's 2018 report on CBD indicates that CBD does not appear to have the potential for abuse or dependence - unlike other painkilling substances, such as THC and opioids.

In fact, some research suggest that CBD could be used as a way to treat addiction to opioids and other dependence-prone substances.

In some medical circles, there is controversy over the "non-psychoactive" label of CBD, as it technically acts on the same cannabinoid type 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain as THC.

But because CBD acts differently on these receptors, the effects are different and you won't get high.

What else should I know before trying CBD?

You should seek medical advice before trying it. This is especially true if you have a medical condition or are taking other medication.

CBD can interact with some medicines, changing the way the body breaks down these medicines. This is especially true for drugs that are processed by the liver.

If you are new to using CBD, start with a low dose and do not use it before a sports competition or training. Once you feel comfortable with its effects, you can start using higher doses and consider taking it before or even during physical activity.

You can also experiment with different ways of consuming and applying CBD. In addition to the common tinctures and capsules, there are also CBD coffees, pre-workout drinks and muscle balms.

Topical CBD is thought to provide the same benefits as other ingestion methods. A recent study published in an Italian medical journal suggests that CBD balms may also treat scarring and psoriasis.
