How CBD Can Accelerate Muscle Recovery

Most of us know the feeling of soreness and stiffness after a really intense workout. While it isn’t inherentlybad to be sore (it’s a sign of a good workout as your muscle begins to repair and strengthen), using CBD products before and after workouts can play a powerful role in speeding up your post-workout comfort and recovery.

But how exactly does CBD accelerate workout recovery? How does it alleviate sore muscles and joints post-workout?

1. Reduced Inflammation

    Inflammation is the body’s natural response to any stress and is the cause of much of the pain we experience.

    Every time we do physical activity, our body breaks itself down to strengthen for next time. This process signals our body’s immune response to heal itself which leaves us feeling sore, stiff, and tired.

    CBD acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and integrates with the human body helping it bring the body back to balance faster.

    “I'm an endurance athlete who primarily focuses on cycling and running. I've heard about the medical benefits of CBD for muscle relief and have completely incorporated the cream into my post workout routine - I apply the menthol-infused cream which instantly soothes my legs.

    The real benefits, though, occurred after about three or four days of using the product. I was expecting to feel less muscle fatigue after my runs and rides, which I did, but the real surprise was that I felt less fatigue in my legs in the middle of runs.” - Mark

    2. Desensitizes Nerve Pain

      Because CBD works directlyat the site of irritated nerve receptors, it desensitizes pain, allowing muscles to relax instead of spasm or become inflamed. And because one of the functions of CBD involves reducing the number of inflammatory molecules produced at the site of pain, this, in turn, blocks pain signals from being sent to the brain. Goodbye achy muscles!

      “I bought this product as soon as it was available and loved it! I do Crossfit, spinning, and yoga and have always hated the day after an intense workout. Sagely was an awesome solution to my sore muscles!” - Mariana

      3. Muscle Rest & Relaxation

        Getting back out there sooner is great, but your body also needs rest to strengthen. Muscles don’t growduring exercising, they grow and strengthen while they’reresting andrecovering. CBD has a lovely “side-effect” of bringing back balance to the body and facilitating relaxation.

        “I try to be a very active person - when I’m in the zone; I’m running, lifting, doing Crossfit, yoga, and dance. I usually do these things back-to-back and sometimes as often as two-a-day. I always accepted that pain and soreness due to muscle regeneration was a given. But then I tried this incredible cream from Sagely and totally flipped my perspective.

        My muscle soreness subsides in a fraction of the time, and I feel better on the whole when I'm engaging in every subsequent activity. This is a must for anyone who is active and pushing the limits but wants a natural remedy to their muscle soreness.” - Franklin

        Give your body a head start on repairing that inevitable microscopic muscle damage from working out. Try using CBD post workout and feel the difference in your recovery!
