How CBD Topicals Help Your Recovery
If you’re new to CBD you may have a few questions on how the products work and their efficacy. You may also be asking yourself how you can incorporate them into your daily fitness routine. In this article we will address these questions and introduce you to the newest member of our team: Level 3 CBD Sport Recovery Patches.
What is CBD & How Does It Work?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in cannabis plants. It is one of the many cannabinoids present in cannabis, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). However, unlike THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects, meaning it does not cause a "high" sensation.
CBD has gained significant attention for its potential therapeutic properties and health benefits. It interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a role in regulating various physiological processes, such as pain, mood, appetite, and sleep. CBD acts on the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the ECS and may help create balance by supporting these natural functions. When CBD is applied topically, it is absorbed through the skin and targets the focus area directly.
What about sports performance and recovery? Promising studies show that CBD may be beneficial to sports performance among athletes by aiding in recovery. It is important to note that while CBD shows promise in many areas, more research is needed to fully understand its effects and potential applications. If you’re still on the fence, add it to your daily routine and find out for yourself!
Helper Ingredients That Enhance CBD Topicals
Level Select CBD topicals are formulated with added ingredients that provide a variety of benefits. These ingredients complement each other, enhancing the efficacy of the products. Natural menthol and camphor are both plant-derived ingredients that provide documented analgesic or pain-relieving effects when applied topically. Humans have been using these plants to relieve discomfort, aches, and soreness for thousands of years. Recent studies have also shown that menthol can be more effective than ice in relieving pain and inflammation when applied directly.
Menthol and camphor work fast by cooling and warming the affected area. This provides rapid relief from discomfort while CBD supports the body’s natural restorative processes over a longer period of time. This makes the ideal vehicle for delivering these ingredients a breathable adhesive patch designed for extended wear.
