How Can CBD Improve Running

Running has gained a lot of popularity ever since the past few years. There is not much equipment needed to enjoy the sport. All you need is good comfortable running shoes and some flexible outfit and you are ready to go. A lot of people have included finishing a 10k, half marathon or full marathon as part of their bucket list.

Running has many positive benefits for your body such as: improving the body's

cardiovascular system, lower blood pressure, strengthen bones and muscles, it can also help reduce anxiety and stress.

But running can also cause injuries to your body. When you run at a high tensity level for too long then you can put your muscles, tendons and ligaments under a lot of strain and tension. Shin pain is often a common injury from overtraining.

Long distance running can cause muscle inflammation and may cause serious joint pain.

Poor running style can cause injuries to your shin muscles and cause a tear.

Wearing the wrong shoes may result in blisters and shin pain.

Not wearing suitable running clothes can cause sunburn, overheating and cold weather injuries.

Where you run is important too. Running on a very hard surface road or platform can put a lot of pressure on your knees and shins which could result in shin injuries or even fracture. But running in a loose or unstable area with a lot of obstacles blocking the way may cause accidents and injuries too.

To avoid injuries you should warm up properly before running and add a lot of stretches during the cool down period. Drink a lot of liquids before and during your run. Don't go over the limit, instead gradually increase speed and distance. Wear suitable clothes and shoes and find plenty of time to rest and let your body rejuvenate.

There has been scientific research that shows that CBD can help runner's in many ways. When runners incorporate CBD as part of their daily health regimen then CBD can help aid with pain and muscle recovery. CBD is also well known to have anti-inflammatory properties to help fight with inflammations to avoid any injuries that can happen when running. Not just that, but CBD can also help reduce stress and anxiety and even depression too. When you are already active and adding a physical and mental aid booster like CBD it can only mean you will gain even more positivity from your exercise.

CBD can repair muscle soreness and injury and at the same time recover from injury. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties which can be beneficial for muscle recovery. After a run or intense exercise it is easy for your muscle to be inflamed ending in pain and slow recovery. CBD can reduce the Inflammation by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System in your body. One of the endocannabinoid system's roles is to regulate immune response.

CBD can help you to relax and reduce stress. Muscle recovery is not only a physical thing, but relies very much on your mental well being too. Once your body can feel calm and get some rest only then will your body rejuvenate and will be in recovery mode. CBD is well known for its ability to promote calm, reduce stress and anxiety.

CBD helps to improve sleep. Quality sleep is essential to muscle recovery and pain. CBD can improve your sleep. Keep in mind that CBD is not a sleeping pill. It doesn't make you sleepy, rather it helps to calm your brain and takes away the stress and anxiety. Once your brain is relaxed it will send signals to your body that it is time to go to sleep. You will have a deeper sleep and wake up less during the night. Even if you wake up during the night you will not have any trouble getting back to sleep. When you wake up you will feel more fresh and full of energy. When you sleep, the body repairs your injuries, boosting muscle recovery and energy for the next day.

The next time you want to go for a run or are planning on working out then remember CBD is your best friend.

Some people take CBD before exercising as CBD is believed to be able to boost energy and focus. You can also take CBD after your physical activities for recovery and to prevent muscle soreness and injury.
