The life of a sportsperson may seem easy on TV, but in reality, it is one of the most uncertain professions. One moment, you may be the top player in your game, the other you might be ‘completely out’ because of a season-ending (or even a career-ending) injury.
When it comes to cannabis, most of the professional athletes can only make use of Cannabidiol (CBD), as consumption of THC is, of course, banned for sportspersons in all major leagues and sports viz. NHL, NFL, NBA, etc.
Given below are a few health-aspects, wherein cannabis may come in handy for sportspersons:
As you already know by now, the cannabinoids – both CBD and THC— in cannabis are highly effective at killing aches. Therefore, like other medical users of cannabis, sportsmen too can make use of it, if the rules permit, someday.
A number of passionate sportspersons have said many a time that sleep eludes them if they lose a very important game, say in the World Cup, or a dream match for which they had been preparing and hoping for too long. Hence, in such ‘hard times’, cannabis can bring some respite.
When was the last time you saw an individual claiming that he/she doesn’t feel stressed out? Maybe an eternity ago.
Sportspersons, too, feel incessant stress as they have to juggle with a lot of things at one time. Thus, cannabis may be a good option to turn to in times of stress.
The non-psychoactive cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), is known to improve bone quality.
CBD isn’t popular for no reason. One of the health benefits that come with CBD is its affinity to reduce blood pressure. Controlled blood pressure ensures a healthy heart and a healthy mind!
If you have a poor digestive system, odds are high that you will never become a successful sportsperson. According to Ayurveda, most of the diseases that create hindrance in our daily lives originate in the stomach.
Athletes have a fixed diet schedule- what to have, what not to have, daily calorie intake, changes in diet according to seasons, places they tour, etc. Thus, maintaining a strict diet is an integral and difficult task.
Cannabis can not only help improve your appetite but also aid in digestion, making it easier to eat a healthy meal when you need it most.
Cannabis, or rather CBD, may do wonders for you, even if you are a sportsperson.
