The human body requires a certain amount of physical activity to maintain good health and wellbeing. Staying active is associated with better mental health and can help delay the onset of nearly 40 chronic conditions and disorders. But exercise comes with risks like soft tissue injuries (sprains, strains, etc).
The established method to help our body recover from moderate sports injuries is rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Doctors also often turn to several painkillers belonging to the NSAID group either in the form of tablets (systemic application) or creams, ointments and others (topical application).
CBD shows promise as a natural alternative to NSAIDs for muscle recovery. It can decrease inflammation when applied on muscles as an ointment or taken orally.
CBD can help with muscle recovery as it improves sleep quality. This is the time when the body is resting properly and regenerates faster.
