Have you ever woken up in the morning still feeling the effects of that brutal leg workout yesterday? Instead of reaching for some over-the-counter anti-inflammatory meds, next time try giving medical grade CBN oil a shot.
As cannabidiol (CBD) becomes more and more prevalent, the benefits do as well. It has its uses for everything from cancer treatment to insomnia, including helping with recovery after tough workouts. CBD has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve pain and mobility according to a 2018 study.
So how do you use it? The simplest way is using a tincture. One dropper, small dose, quick and easy. A good rule of thumb is to assess your personal pain level, and then start with 1-6 milligrams of CBD per 10 pounds of bodyweight. Use trial and error and adjust from there, but that is a good starting point.
Of course, check with a doctor before starting any dosage, but CBD appears to be a more natural choice than an anti-inflammatory pill to deal with the pain of an especially killer leg day.
Who knows? Maybe soon you’ll recover so fast you don’t need as much time between workouts.
