Athletes and other physically active people commonly suffer pain as a result of training and other related activities. While there are plenty of OTC medicines that help people deal with pain, an ever growing number of elite and amateur athletes alike are turning to CBD to help them mange the symptoms of pain associated with their sporting routines.
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.
It’s not that CBD is better than hemp protein or vice versa. They are just different. Hemp protein contains all nine essential amino acids and is a great source of protein and fiber. CBD is a cannabinoid that interacts directly with our endocannabinoid system providing various holistic benefits to the body and mind.
