Anxiety can be classified into three categories: cognitive anxiety, somatic anxiety and behavioral anxiety. Each of these anxieties can negatively impact the performance of an athlete. Because CBD can be effective tool for managing symptoms associated with anxiety, athletes are now turning to CBD as way to indirectly boost their sports performance.
Pain can be categorized as either nociceptive or neuropathic. Neuropathic pain is also sometimes referred to as chronic pain because of its ongoing nature. CBD, because of the way it interacts with our ECS, can be an effective tool for people looking to manage neuropathic pain.
Sleep disorders can be caused by a variety of factors including anxiety, stress, trauma and pain. Because cannabidiol directly interacts with our own endocannabinoid system (ECS), it is believed that CBD oil, when used to manage these factors, can indirectly also help to resolve to sleep problems.
