CBD for running recovery

Probably my primary interest in CBD relates to its ability to assist with my recovery from runs. The biggest challenge in training for 100 mile race isn’t the finish line. It’s making it to the start line without your training plan going awry. My hope is that the CBD that I’m taking each day will help. Scientific research in this area is new, but I found some articles worth examining if you are also interested in using CBD oil to help keep your running plan on track.

There does appear to be evidence that CBD can reduce inflammation which mat, in turn, help recovery. Check out this article from Men’s Health: https://www.menshealth.com/health/a26467604/cbd-for-inflammation-muscle-recovery/

This is a blog, but shows the experience of another runner using CBD:

Here’s one from Outside magazine that also explains some of the current trends with athletes and CBD:

I also thought that this article does a good job of summarizing things that runners should think about before taking CBD:
