CBD and Muscle Growth

There are many benefits of choosing CBD when you are training and trying to strengthen your body. CBD is excellent for recovery and in promoting optimal mental health. Here are some of the top ways that CBD can help you to grow muscle and recover quickly when training.

Catabolic Hormone Blocking

If you’ve ever heard of catabolic hormones in regards to athletic training, you know how much they can impact muscle growth. Cortisol management is especially important when an athlete is trying to build muscle. Too much cortisol in the system will break down muscle tissue and make it difficult for you to further muscle growth. It Is extremely important to keep cortisol levels low throughout the day as well as in the evening so that you can achieve proper rest and recovery. CBD will help you take ease and repair your body, making sure that your cortisol levels can be properly balanced for optimal muscle growth.

When we get better sleep through an enhanced REM cycle, this encourages new muscle tissue to grow more effectively and cortisol to be reduced to a minimum throughout the rest of the day. Better sleep also reduces stress levels and makes us feel much more motivated to work out to improve our fitness.

Achieving better sleep can happen as we work out intensely and then managing cortisol levels afterwards with CBD can help us to manage more muscle growth throughout the day.

Homeostasis and Anandamide

The Endocannabinoid anandamide is particularly important for producing a runner’s high and many of the motivational forces that keep us working out. Finding a better balance and being able to impact the endocannabinoid system to the point where we feel more motivated and comfortable to work out will lead to more muscle growth.

If you would like to push your training to the limit, you should consider the idea of boosting your athletic abilities with CBD.
