CBD for Runners Runner's Relief

Running could be one of the best ways to clear your mind as you build strength and stamina. As your heart rate increases and muscles strain, various neurotransmitters help brighten your mood, boost energy levels, and calm the impact of stress.

Whether you’ve been a competitive runner for years or just getting started, it’s important not to underestimate the importance of post-workout recovery. If you’re feeling the impact of pushing your body to the limit on the trail, track, or treadmill, maybe it’s time to consider some of the many possible benefits of hemp-derived CBD for pain, stiffness, and inflammation after physical activity.

Athletes & Runners Use CBD for Its Benefits

The discomfort so many athletes endure while increasing their strength and perfecting their form is caused by microscopic injuries to muscle fibers. Although necessary for muscle growth, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a sure sign of a body in need of ample time to recover. Runners who press on before the inflammation subsides and their body has time to heal are at risk of getting trapped in a frustrating cycle of recurring injury and chronic inflammation that can lead to permanent damage.

Post-activity discomfort tends to get worse before it gets better. Any lingering tenderness you might feel in your knees, thighs, or calves in the hours and days after an extended run can keep you on the sidelines and disrupt your training. Although using an over-the-counter pain reliever could help reduce the inflammation that can stall post-workout recovery, many runners concerned about the risks of long-term use prefer natural, holistic, alternatives. Based on the feedback of nearly 2000 CBD users, 9 out of 10 choose CBD over turmeric, a natural supplement often used by athletes for pain and inflammation.

What Type of CBD Oil Is Best for Runners?

The product many people call CBD oil is a blend of cannabinoid-rich hemp extracts and a carrier oil, a tincture. As you’re browsing product options, you’ll see that there are three main types of CBD oil tinctures, full spectrum, broad spectrum, and tinctures made with pure CBD isolate powder. Since there’s no single type of CBD oil that appeals to every runner, the following product descriptions could help lead you to the option best suited to your needs and preferences.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tinctures

Full spectrum CBD oil tinctures give you all the additional cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and phytonutrients in the same ratios as the original plant source, including the trace amounts of THC. Many CBD users feel full spectrum tinctures are the more potent of the three options because of the combined impact of the cannabinoids and terpenes, their “entourage effect.”

Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tinctures

Broad spectrum CBD oil tinctures have many of the same cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes as their full spectrum counterparts, but the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is reduced to non-detectable levels during extraction and processing. Broad spectrum tinctures are popular with CBD users who want the benefit maximizing potential of an entourage effect, but not the THC.

Pure CBD Isolate Tinctures

CBD isolate powder is flavorless, odorless, and the purest form of cannabidiol you'll find. Once the additional cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other unwanted plant components are removed, all that remains is a 0% THC powder. Pure CBD isolate tinctures are popular with CBD users most interested in the health and wellness potential of CBD on its own.
