What is CBD?

What is CBD and how does it work?

Although an increasingly common ingredient in many health and wellness products, many still wonder, what is CBD? Cannabidiol (CBD) is, by far, one of the most studied compounds of the 100- plus known cannabinoids found in Cannabis sativa. It’s one of at least 85 active compounds inside cannabis plants and has quickly gained favour among those seeking a different approach to everyday wellness.

CBD has quality benefits concerning the human body; emerging studies seem to support the idea that CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body – a biological network composed of cannabinoid receptors – to help the body maintain overall health and wellness.

CBD works to help maintain our bodies’ homeostasis. Homeostasis is a healthy state of balance and internal stability against outside or unknown factors that would otherwise disrupt how the human body would typically perform.

And contrary to THC, CBD works as a non-intoxicating compound with none of the psychoactive effects commonly associated with THC. In other words, you cannot experience a “high” from consuming CBD oil.

CBD as a muscle reliever

We have developed a muscle rescue infused with 600mg of CBD Oil. Research suggests that CBD Oil may work as a muscle relaxer.

A CBD topical like this Muscle Rescue massage oil with 600mg of CBD oil infused in it, is a useful way to alleviate muscle soreness and pain. 

While some inflammation can stimulate training adaptions, excess inflammation can slow down your recovery. Because cannabinoids have an anti-inflammatory effect, they can help your body recover faster.

Pre-clinical trials and case studies imply that using some form of CBD post-workout may help the body recover, rebalance and ultimately build muscle.
