Athletes and keep-fit enthusiasts alike are continuing to pursue an intake of CBD for its role in post-workout recovery. Working out causes microscopic damage to muscle fibres causing inflammation, triggering the body to respond and repair. This results in muscle soreness and stiffness. CBD is thought to reduce inflammation, swelling and the soreness. CBD works in conjunction with the human body's endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a cell signalling network that controls relaxation, digestion and glucose metabolism in muscle cells; All three, vital to the recovery process after training, delivering nutrition throughout the body.

How CBD helps?

Tara Laferrara, a former sprinter and a NASM certified personal trainer, told about her personal use of CBD. “As a personal trainer and someone that works out every day and really pushes myself a lot, I noticed the biggest difference in inflammation and stress after a workout.” It basically manages and prevents my joint inflammation, that aching kind of feeling, that I'd get after a heavy lift day,” she says.

In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its list of prohibited substances – in or out of competition. This recent decision by WADA allows CBD use by all athletes with clear conscience. Screenshot from 29-07-202

Any scientific proof?

According to a 2018 review of 132 original studies published in Frontiers in Neurology, CBD can indeed reduce inflammation in the body and help improve pain and mobility in patients with multiple sclerosis. “It is anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antiemetic, antipsychotic, and neuroprotective,” the review study’s authors wrote. 

“Broadly speaking, it does decrease inflammation when it's rubbed on muscles as an ointment or taken orally,” Dr. Perry Solomon, previous chief medical officer and founding member of HelloMD, told

CBD is commonly regarded as safe to use. Even the doctors published in Frontiers in Neurology said: “High doses of up to 1,500 mg per day and chronic use have been repeatedly shown to be well tolerated by humans.” You shouldn't need that much, though figuring out how much you do need can be tricky, as there is no "standard" dose. 

One rule of thumb is 1-6 milligrams of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on pain levels. Another is to start with 5-10mg per day and increase by 5-10mg until you feel relief. This isn't perfect and requires trial and error, but it'll help you find a starting point. 

As with anything you plan to put into your body, discuss CBD with your doctor first, particularly if you take other medications. They can help you make sure your liver will have enough room to metabolize it all so as not to diminish the effects of either. (Men's
