      Women Of Cannabis — dailynutrition

      Women of Cannabis: Teal Stetson-Lee, professional cyclist loves to ease her soreness with CBD!

      Many in the fitness world are looking for CBD for athletes but may be hesitant to do so as they are worried that this may cause them to get an adverse result in a drug test that could see them fined or even banned from their sport. CBD is one of around 100 cannabinoids, or unique compounds, that are found naturally in the cannabis plant.

      It is completely different from that other famous cannabinoid, THC, in that it is completely non-psychoactive and has no potential for addiction or overdose and has no significant side effects. CBD has many properties that make it beneficial to humans, notably supporting the endocannabinoid system in the human body. Given that CBD is a non-psychoactive, non-addictive compound, you would think that there would be no problem with athletes using it to aid with training and competition, just like they take vitamins and other supplements.

      A few reasons why athletes love CBD are:

      • Pre-match nerves – the calming effects of CBD can help relieve any anxiety that athletes have in the run-up to a game, fight or performance. It also helps them to get a good night’s sleep, which is key for helping them to feel prepared and rested
      • Weight management – CBD products are thought to act as an appetite suppressant in some people, making it easier for athletes to stick to their diets and maintain their physiques
      • Pain relief – sore muscles can hold athletes back from their training regimes, and so the anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties of cannabidiol can help them to get back to the gym sooner

      And one such athlete who loves the relieving benefits of CBD is Teal Stetson-Lee! “Most professional athletes who have come out as advocates for cannabis do not do so until after their careers are over, for fear of immediate repercussions,” wrote Stetson-Lee. “That is exactly the reason why I feel the need to take this stance, while I am still in the prime of my competitive professional career.”

      “As an athlete, the CBD tinctures and creams are extremely useful for injuries and sore muscles,” she added.

      If you’re an athlete or someone who is into physical fitness in general, CBD can help you solve a lot of obstacles you may face. So give it a try! And since it’s Women’s Month, the ladies can avail 10% off on their purchases with the code WMN10.

      Women of Cannabis: Olivia Wilde chooses CBD over painkillers

      We got familiar with Olivia Wilde through the hit TV Show ‘House’ but after the show ended in 2012, she has gone on to act in Broadway, direct films and write books too. Her directorial debut was appreciated by critics and viewers alike. Wall Street Journal said that "Nothing funnier, smarter, quicker or more joyous has graced the big screen in a long time." As Olivia Wilde continues to explore her passions and grow in her career, she is not exempt from health hazards induced from work. She too undergoes tiredness, pains and aches from long hours on stage and on camera. And for this, she has recently declared that she turns to CBD.

      “Another thing I’m a huge believer in, in terms of body care: I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD from marijuana that I discovered it through my friends in LA. Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked.  My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.” She told the New York Times.

      And she’s absolutely spot on with this one! Why bother yourself with the harmful side effects of pain killers when you can stick to something that gives you similar results with no side effects? Topicals are amazing for treating pain. They are loved by athletes too and are known for being able to alleviate high levels of pain. Celebrities are also known to use CBD topicals on their feet while walking the red carpet to make the pain more bearable. Not only that, it can also be used pre and post workout to manage pain, soothe the body and reduce inflammation.

      If you face any of the above situations at work or your daily life, consider switching to CBD tinctures or balms to help you manage the pain. For the ladies, this month we’ve got flat 10% off with the code WMN10 so if you want to get started the time is now!
