Cannabis company as shirt sponsor?

Earlier this month, the news came out that the American professional disc team Colorado Summit will be playing this season with a new shirt sponsor. In the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) 25 teams from the USA and Canada come from four divisions. Central, South, West and East. You can compare an Ultimate Disc (UD) match to a rugby or American Football match. Replace the ball with a Frisbee. You can run without a Frisbee, but you can't do that with the Frisbee in your possession. Passing forward is allowed within an UD game and you score points if the Frisbee is caught in the end zone. If you don't catch the disc, the opposing team takes over. If you watch the video for one minute, you get it immediately.

Who uses CBD and why?

Who exactly are those athletes who use CBD and why do they do it? I could now just list the benefits of CBD, but this time I want to go a little deeper. After three years of building CBD SPORTS I think have a good idea why people take CBD as a supplement for the first time and continue to take it. History shows us that it is often the professional athletes who start using a supplement or a substance for the first time and when that proves successful, the other athletes and active life stylers follow. I am thinking of examples such as protein, creatine and magnesium, but also testosterone, anabolic steroids, EPO (Erythropoietin) and HGH (Human Growth Hormone). The first examples are still examples of supplementation that are allowed in professional sports, but the following list are of course prohibited substances for professional athletes, as this enhances performance and, not unimportantly, can also be harmful to the user. Athletes may also use medications such as Advil, Tylenol, NSAID's, salbutamol, opiates and morphine. Maybe it starts to dazzle you a little by now with al these substances athletes might use. The medicines mentioned are mainly painkillers and salbutamol is the substance in an inhaler that is often used by people who suffer from a form of asthmatic bronchitis. These substances are prohibited for a professional athlete, but a certain dose may also be allowed if an athlete needs the drug due to a medical condition, such as with salbutamol (the inhaler).The line between a supplement, a drug or even drugs is often thin. A top athlete will always try to get the most out of his or her body. These athletes therefore often cannot avoid getting a little help from supplementation and medication to allow their bodies to function optimally. Someone who exercises at a "lower" level is in fact not very different. You exercise to allow your body and mind to function optimally. To be healthy, to be resilient to diseases and to have enough energy every day to be able to do your work and other daily tasks. The answer to the question which athletes use CBD is therefore simple: every athlete should use CBD.

How to take CBD?

You may have read by now that CBD Sport Supplements can provide you with a number of benefits, but how do you start with CBD?There are basically two ways how to take CBD. On or in your body. On your body is the easiest. Apply CBD topically by means of a cream, ointment, balm, oil or gel. You can do that as often as necessary. Athletes use CBD most to prevent or treat muscle and joint pain after training. Warming creams before training to prevent muscle soreness and cooling creams for the treatment of pain, bruises or impact spots after training. It gets more complicated when we talk about CBD in your body. CBD supplements can be taken in many ways. The most popular way is taking CBD oil drops under your tongue, but you can also swallow tablets, capsules or pills, or you eat or drink products that contain CBD and as a last option you can inhale CBD through vaping, smoking or through an inhaler device.Every label on a CBD product must state the amount of CBD in milligrams, in addition to the other ingredients of course. This is generally quite clear with tablets and capsules. For example, the vegan gel capsules from PACHAMAMA contain 25Mg per capsule. The Hex tablets from CB.do contain 30Mg CBD. This also applies to the CBD products that you can eat or drink. A Rabbit Lifestyle drink contains 15Mg per can and a scoop of the Naturecan Whey Protein contains 25Mg CBD.

CBD and bioavailability

When you start using CBD, there is a term that is important to understand:   "bioavailability", which Wikipedia defines as "Bioavailability, often abbreviated to bioavailability, is a pharmaceutical term that indicates the extent to which a drug's active ingredients become available at the intended place in your body."Usually this is defined as follows:Bioavailability is the fraction of the dose of a drug that enters the general circulation (past the portal venous system and liver) unchanged relative to intravenous application and the rate at which this occurs."

CBD SPORTS user experiences

CBD is increasingly used by athletes. Much is written about the effect of CBD in the body. The endocannabinoid system is explained and the different types of CBD as isolate, broad spectrum and full spectrum are featured in many informative blogs. The results of many studies are added in and the benefits such as better sleep, less pain and faster recovery are widely acclaimed. The reviews for the various products show many enthusiastic reactions from users. "My life has completely changed", "Took a few drops and never slept so well", "My immunity is a lot better and the pain is totally gone" and so on. There are many positive reviews to be found on all CBD providers blogs. Still, it is wise to read all those positive reviews with a critical eye. The effect is certainly not the same for everyone and it depends very much on what you use, how you use it and the reason why you use CBD. In fact, starting with a random CBD oil can be very unwise to do and can have a negative effect on your training results.

The last drop?

CBD supplements in general, but particularly  in Sport is booming. Almost every athlete has already heard of the magic drops. A few drops under your tongue and you sleep, recover and perform better is the fast circulating buzz. The drops that athletes do know until now are for example ear drops when your ears are stuffy, especially swimmers and water polo players know them. Nose drops for a running nose are a favourite with endurance athletes and I used eye drops myself when I was still playing tennis. The gravel sometimes gets into your eye and that can be tremendously irritating. A few drops in your eye does miracles to regain a clear vision.

Gyms re-opening, are your muscles ready for that?

It is generally accepted that CBD can act as an anti-inflammatory. This allows sports injuries to be reduced.Our range, Balms and Lotions helps to relax and care for tight muscles.In addition, it helps with joint pain, which can make your life a lot more pleasant.CBD Muscle Recovery Gel:How does that actually work?Gregory Gerdeman, Ph.D., neurophysiologist who studies cannabinoid biology and pharmacology at Eckerd College in Saint Petersburg, FL. explains.When you do strength training, you create micro-tears (damage) in your muscles, therefore you feel painful as you heal. Once your immune cells detect damage, they release inflammatory mediators to repair the tissue. However, CBD has the ability to limit the release of some pro-inflammatory signals, helping with pain without completely interfering with healing.Finally, you have receptors called TrpV1 that detect and regulate your body temperature. When activated, they release heat, softening your pain receptors. By using this channel, CBD makes these pain receptors hyperactive for a period of time, making them warm, desensitizing, and down-regulating those pain-sensitive nerve endings.Applied to the skin, CBD can help moisturize the skin and can also act as an anti-inflammatory. This can lead to skin repair and improved skin vibrancy. CBD can therefore significantly reduce acne. CBD can also thicken the hair follicles. This promotes hair growth.CBD has proven to be a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, with the ability to moisturize and nourish the skin by promoting and supporting moisture retention. In addition, it regulates the natural oil production of the skin. In addition, it fights acne and signs of aging.Now that the gyms are opening again, the chances of muscle pain are high after months without heavy strength training.We recommend CBD Sports Muscle Rub for use on joints and muscle aches, pain and especially stiffness. This balm provides effective and targeted pain relief. Inspired by Chinese wisdom, the curative properties of our careful selection of ingredients are enhanced with an aromatic fragrance.CBD Sports Muscle Rub is a light balm with a mild warming effect that will quickly tackle and soothe the pain. Whether you are looking for relief from a sports injury or spend hours at a desk, this sports balm is going to save you!
