CBD and muscle regeneration

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa). CBD oil is made using the whole plant, which is produced using a modern extraction process using liquid carbon dioxide. CBD products sold in our country do not contain THC, which is the psychoactive substance in the plant.

Based on research, it can be said that CBD oil achieves its positive effect on the body with the help of the endocannabinoid system. It is a relatively complex system through which the human body regulates its biological processes. There are several such cannabinoid receptors in our body, which are associated with different biological activities. (E.g.: energy production, mood, appetite, pain sensation.)

Applying CBD externally?

Few people know that CBD oil can be absorbed through the skin and exert its effect locally. With its active ingredients, it provides excellent help in achieving faster regeneration after training for people with muscle tension, inflammation, joint pain or even professional/amateur athletes who work their muscles on a daily basis.

How does CBD work when applied externally?

The receptors of the endocannabinoid system (CB1 AND CB2) are present in large numbers in every layer of our skin, CBD can be used through the skin, therefore it effectively helps the regeneration of muscles and joints after training, as well as reduces pain.

Muscle regeneration:

During muscle fever, a kind of inflammatory process occurs, the purpose of which is to restore the damaged muscle fibers, in which case the amount of blood flowing into this area increases, thus delivering more oxygen and nutrients. This larger amount of blood helps to transport the cellular debris and lactic acid produced during muscle work.

Unpleasant muscle tension

Muscle tension is a common symptom of myalgia. In the case of injuries, the tension of the surrounding muscles can increase the pain, which is why athletes use muscle relaxants and, in the case of milder pain, medicated creams to relieve the pain.
Since CBD is a completely natural substance, it exerts its beneficial effects on the body without the risk of serious side effects.
