Cannabinol, also known as CBD, has become one of the hottest topics in the news and media.
As if CBD couldn’t become an even more talked about product since it’s claimed health and wellness benefits have become publicly acclaimed.
What is CBD?
CBD is what cannabis experts claim to be the medicinal property within the hemp plant. Hemp-derived CBD does not get users “high” like cannabis containing THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
CBD became popular after a cannabis strain called, Charlotte's Web helped a little girl named, Charlotte Figi, to maintain a normal state of life from a rare form of epilepsy, Dravet Syndrome, which causes seizures.
CBD & sports
One of the reasons CBD has become such a hot topic in the sports realm is due to its medical properties with no reported harmful side effects. CBD could become an ideal solution for sports athletes in search of a recovery aid.
Athletes need to stay in top physical performance; however, their bodies can take a beating. CBD offers athletes a form of relief without having to fear any intoxication or harmful side effects.
