Recovering fully between training sessions is unquestionably a vital component of the overall athletic performance “picture.” It therefore makes perfect sense to take whatever steps we can to enhance the quality of our recovery.
Resupplying the body ASAP with high-quality carbs and protein via Recoverite is one of those steps. Providing the body with a wide range of antioxidants—both from food and supplements—is another important step.
And here are two other extremely important components of superior recovery:
- Relieving the aches and soreness that often accompany us after a hard workout. You simply can’t train effectively if your muscles and joints are constantly sore.
- Getting consistent quality sleep. Lack of quality sleep, in the words of one highly-respected coach, “is the ultimate performance killer.”
While there are products that very much help both—Tissue Rejuvenator for the aches; REM Caps for the sleep—the highest podium when it comes to both is reserved for CBD. It doesn’t eliminate the use of either Tissue Rejuvenator or REM Caps—far from it—but CBD should be first in your recovery supplement regimen, with those two products providing outstanding complementary support.
How CBD works to maximize recovery
CBD is short for cannabidiol (pronounced can-uh-bih-DIE-all), one of over 60 compounds called cannabinoids (pronounced kuh-NAB-in-oyds) that are found in the cannabis plant. A number of cannabinoids are produced in the human body as well. Cannabinoids act on receptors found in the cells that are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a system that regulates key aspects of our biology. The two major cannabinoid receptors are:
- Cannabinoid Receptor Type 1 (CB1): These receptors are found throughout the body, though primarily in the central nervous system and the brain. As expected, these receptors are involved with regulating sleep, mood, emotions, thinking, movement/coordination, appetite, and more.
- Cannabinoid Receptor Type 2 (CB2): These receptors are found mainly in the immune system throughout the body. When CB2 receptors are activated, they work to reduce aches and soreness.
