Less muscle inflammation = Better Recovery

Muscle soreness is normal, right?

Feeling sore after a major workout is something you’ve accepted as par for the course. But should it be?

When you’re training for no matter what - you’ll get up the next morning and do it all over again, no matter how much it hurts.

What if all your focus could be on form and performance, not on how much your (insert pain point here) is hurting?

Let’s science it...

Scientific and medical research shows CBD interacts with the human body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is essentially a signalling network to activate essential physiological processes in the body. CBD has a similar molecular structure to your body’s endocannabinoids, and can interact with the receptors in your body and brain, regulating processes such as pain, inflammation, appetite, mood and circadian rhythms.

What makes your muscles feel sore?

Strenuous and high-impact workouts can cause microscopic damage to your muscle fibers, triggering an inflammatory response. Muscle soreness can be caused by excessive inflammation. Most of the time, normal inflammation prompts muscle repair and regeneration. But excessive soreness and inflammation can prolong how you recover and make it harder to get back into the game. Research has demonstrated that CBD works with those same receptors in your body to reduce the expression of molecules in muscle tissue that promote inflammation as well as reduce tissue degeneration.

CBD is shown to reduce excessive inflammation and help repair your muscles to get you back to what you do best.

So, we (and our athletes) can tell you that Champions + Legends CBD Products will help reduce inflammation promoting better recovery, or you can look into the science more (Get our Science of CBD Whitepaper here).

Either way we like to make sure the science is sound, because then we know it works.
