CBD: the next big thing for dancers

Dance is a truly poetic art form and is uniquely human. However, there is no denying that it can be hard on the body. Professional dancers practice, rehearse and perform on average 6-7 hours a day. Considering that a single ballet class lasts an hour and a half, even non-professionals put a lot of strain on the body. For professional dance artists, their body is an instrument, their career and their livelihood depend on their ability to perform physically. Therefore, many dancers are looking for products to help alleviate the aches and pains of strenuous activity, products to help them recover and those that address the negative consequences of dance, CBD may be the solution they are looking for.

Cannabidiol, often referred to as CBD, is one of the many natural cannabinoids present in hemp and cannabis. Often sold in oils, edibles, topicals and vapes, CBD is rapidly gaining popularity in the wellness community for its many therapeutic benefits, including relieving muscle and joint pain, helping to alleviate arthritis symptoms, decreasing anxiety, reducing the frequency of epilepsy and even fighting cancer. Although some claims need more research, many dancers in Spain claim that CBD has helped them prolong their careers. Dancer Nuria G. "...CBD has helped me a lot, it's harder and harder to do what I do every day, but I wake up feeling fresher, with more flexible muscles... They hurt less in general, without having to take painkillers that contain strong chemicals".

What is CBD really?

Cannabidiol is one of more than 100 naturally occurring phytocannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants. CBD acts synergistically with our body's endocannabinoid system, a biological system composed of "endogenous" or self-produced cannabinoids, receptors in the nervous system and throughout the body to which "endo" or "phyto" cannabinoids bind, and enzymes that help break down these cannabinoids.

Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol, also called THC, cannabidiol is not psychoactive. Therefore, it does not produce a 'high' or the feeling of euphoria or sedation that is often associated with cannabis. This makes CBD ideal for use in physical activities such as dance and sport.

Short-term effects of CBD

CBD Oil and Dance.

Research supports anecdotal evidence that cannabidiol can significantly reduce inflammation associated with strenuous activity and pain from injuries. For dancers, this is a significant benefit. Prolonged practice and performance is incredibly hard on the body. Traditionally, dancers have relied on Advil, Aleve and other drugs to control subsequent inflammation and pain, but over-reliance on these medications can lead to serious side effects. CBD offers a natural method of recovery and pain management without the harsh side effects of chemical or synthetic medications.

For dancers with performance anxiety, CBD also helps to calm the nervous system. This helps to reduce some of the more extreme emotions associated with anxiety. Therefore, some performers find it helpful to use CBD drops to control nervousness and jitters on stage.

It is important to note that research on CBD and its effects is relatively new. While research and anecdotal experiences of individuals indicate that these benefits are real and the result of CBD use, there is still much to learn. Fortunately, as cannabis, and CBD in particular, becomes more accepted, we will only learn more about its effects.

Long-term effects of CBD

Not surprisingly, the short-term benefits of CBD can lead to long-term health benefits with consistent use. Since the endocannabinoid system is crucial to "homeostasis" or your body's efforts to function optimally, it requires a steady diet of cannabinoids to properly perform this role. Research on debilitating diseases such as arthritis shows great promise for both short and long-term benefits, suggesting that the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis can be inhibited by the use of CBD and may even interrupt the progression of the disease. This is important for dancers, because arthritis, if left unchecked, can be a career-ending disease.

Of course, these benefits are still being studied. In addition, it is very important to keep in mind that CBD should be incorporated as part of a broader wellness regimen. Proper nutrition, rest, cross-training, stretching and other wellness techniques such as massage are necessary for the overall health and well-being of dancers and should be utilised.

Use of CBD

Cannabidiol can be used in a variety of ways. It can be applied topically in the form of a cream to help with localised pain. In addition, CBD can be ingested sublingually or under the tongue, inhaled with a vaporiser, or mixed with food. All of these methods of ingestion have different effects, so consider consulting a doctor to determine which is best for your needs.
