CBD SPORTS AND TRAINING

CBD, INITIATOR, ENDURANCE AND RECOVER

Athletes will come using the CBD in some way in different ways to help their training routines. When consumed as an oil before exercise, this cannabinoid improves performance.

After doing sports you can improve recovery. For all this, this substance can become a supplement among the essential for elite athletes.

CBD as a compound of medical marijuana

CBD or cannabidiol is an element present in some of the various varieties of marijuana. It is one of the more than 545 compounds that are part of the chemistry of Cannabis Sativa, the most widely used type of medical cannabis.

If you have seriously practiced a sport in which your resistance is tested, you will know how hard it is. It affects your muscles, leaving them sore muscles, and also influences your immune system.

Instead, suppose you are a professional athlete, performing as an athlete and constantly changing your body beyond its limits. Training of such intensity always ends up taking its toll.

FULL POWER AT THE EXTREME

A situation that becomes even more alarming if you practice contact sports, such as rugby or boxing, for example.

Getting over it is a necessity, but the consumption of any type of drugs is a problem in the professional field. Opioids and steroids are part of the concern.

However, in countries like the US This is the pain reliever included for chronic pain derived from professional sports, while, thanks to the anti-drug fight, doping controls include cannabis.

If it is detected in any type of athlete’s body fluid, it can be considered a reason for sanction.

Athletes face regulatory norms against marijuana in any sport, in all countries, being difficult to foresee a future change of situation.

For example, the National Football League is currently facing the issue, and changes may be suggested soon.

When you play sports, your body produces chemicals naturally, the so-called endorphins. You also generate something known as anandamide, a neurotransmitter that we usually consider the “happiness molecule.”

Anandamide, due to its functions, could be considered as an endocannabinoid, that is, a natural cannabinoid that is produced in your own organism.

This is why cannabinoids, including CBD, adhere to the receptors without problems. When anandamide is attached to a cannabinoid receptor, it initiates a calming effect.

This may be something that does not seem effective in subjects with high levels of anandamide. In contrast, for those who suffer from low levels of anandamide and need additional energy, this substance has effects incomparable to those of other medications.

The CBD interacts with the TRPV-1 receiver. This type of receptors is involved in the perception of pain, inflammation and body temperature.

In addition, it activates the adenosine receptor, a function that is essential for the functioning of the cardiovascular system and blood flow.

Many athletes have discovered the benefit of marijuana with CBD over their exercise rhythms. And later, especially when applied as an oil on the skin, it helps to make recovery faster.

CBD help your body recover and maintain a better homeostasis.

It is a product with very few or no adverse effects. It lacks psychoactive properties, but enjoys many therapeutic-type virtues, making it a powerful ally in the medical field. Therefore, scientific research on the compound has been intense over recent years.

The road to the legalization of CBD in sport

It is true that it is quite simple that some dependence on an opioid is generated, and that there is also a high risk of overdose. In addition, it is common for the consumer to understand the difference between a dose with palliative function and another that could be lethal, and do so before it can be too late to ask for help.

Therefore, and especially in this time of reforms, football players are beginning to unite in order to claim that cannabis be included in the list of substances allowed in the sport.

 

NFL AND ITS REBEL FIGHT IN FAVOR OF CBD

In this circumstance is the aspect of greatest interest about this new rebellion in the NFL. There are several sports institutions that are currently valuing the influence of cannabis on physical performance.

At the moment it is still prohibited, and athletes continue to undergo all tests for detection.

These controls contemplate much more than the consumption of THC (the main psychoactive constituent of cannabis).

The position in the American league is that, in practice, even when using some kind of oil with CBD on the skin for the treatment of mere muscle strains, a player could be exposed to a penalty for drug use.

In the NFL all this has become a problem for both players and owners of all teams. But there is hope.

In three years the collective agreement will be renegotiated, and there is a forecast that prohibitions on cannabis will be removed from the league from that date.

This could also cause a chain reaction in the regulations of many other sports institutions and organizations. And we will surely see it in all kinds of fields, starting from the very Olympic Games and going through soccer or long distance athletics to cycling.

There is no doubt that this situation is leading to a new revolution. Medical marijuana, with high contents in the CBD compound, is on the eve of entering fully into the sports field, ceasing to be an exclusive medicine for patients and patients.

There is a long way to go, and its acceptance will be progressive, but it will not take long to see how this complement is used in a normalized way in sport.


WE ARE SEEING A NEW CLASS OF ATHLES EMERGE: THE ENTHUSIAST

There is a long list of supposed benefits associated with marijuana, but some say it can also help improve endurance during a workout

Some athletes, such as former NFL linebacker Eben Britton, have been open about the perceived benefits of marijuana to stay fit, but there are still many who are “in the closet” due to the stigma of drug use.

Historically speaking, fitness and marijuana have never been considered the best training partners. In fact, you probably considered them as opposite poles. In one corner, you were aware of health and fitness; in the other, the drug addicts and their monchis.

But as cannabis laws have relaxed (medical marijuana is now legal in 29 states, while recreational marijuana is legal in nine), we see a new class of athletes emerge: the marijuana enthusiast.

“It has become a social movement,” says Jim McAlpine, founder of the pot-friendly 420 Games athletic event series, as well as the San Francisco-based Power Plant Fitness gym, which is co-owner of the former NFL. Ricky Williams runner. “There are so many of us that we are in the closet.”

 

McAlpine, Williams and their henchmen are part of a new generation of cannabis users, who enjoy a highly fitness lifestyle, even though they smoke pot.

Pro Marijuana athletes tend to brush cannabis for several reasons. “Activate your brain and take you to The Zone,” says McAlpine. “I love smoking before skiing, riding a mountain bike or going surfing. It puts me in a place of less focus, the kind of? Eye of the Tiger ?. It’s not for everyone, but for some people who are more athletic and coordinated, it works. ”


GAME CHANGER

While coordination and concentration may not be the first things that come to mind when you think about the potency of marijuana, McAlpine is not alone in his belief that going on before training can perfect an athlete to be fit. According to former NFL offensive lineman Eben Britton, who has spoken openly about NFL players who use cannabis to control pain, smoking marijuana “connects me mentally and emotionally to my body, allowing me to exercise more satisfying. ”

Smoking cannabis before training helps relax stiff muscles and scar tissue, as well as your mind. “It’s very encouraging mentally. It allows me to get the last two reps,” he told MensHealth.com. “I may be getting tired, but it puts me in a state of flux and allows me to move on.”

If you are skeptical about the benefits of marijuana’s physical condition, you have reason to be. For years, marijuana has been promoted as a treatment for everything from epilepsy to opioid addiction and sleep apnea, so it is not surprising that some athletes swear that it could also help them improve their performance.

 

 

That said, there is little evidence to suggest that smoking before a workout can, in fact, increase your earnings. “It has been shown that cannabis is a drug that degrades performance, so for maximum performance you should not use cannabis,” says Jordan Tishler, a doctor and specialist in cannabis therapy trained at Harvard. If you are smoking marijuana before a new or particularly difficult training, it can be downright insecure: according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “the more difficult and unpredictable the task, the more likely it is that marijuana impairs [mental and motor] performance.” .

But this is where the supposed benefits come in, says Tishler: “cannabis has proven to be good for pain control and can be useful while training at standard levels. Like a runner, cannabis can help with resistance “.


MEDICAL CANNABIS

The cannabis doctor, Dr. June Chin, agrees. Whenever an athlete is not injured or at risk of injury, She often suggests that She use cannabis “during the training season to help recover, relieve pain and move to the next level. The goal is not to stop with that knee. stubborn or low back pain. They can run the longest distance, be faster and more efficient. They can drive you. ”

The evidence is particularly strong for CBD (cannabidiol), a non-psychoactive compound in marijuana (for example, it doesn’t make you very? High?) ​​That many athletes claim to improve recovery. After his UFC fight with Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz was bloody and bruised, but relaxed, he sat down for a press conference and launched CBD steam, telling reporters he “helps with the healing process. That unlish a great debate about the uses in sprts and make a radical change in the sports world.

 

 

THE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Nowadays I’m training not very much than before but indeed more than what I really spect, having a newborn, learning in a  new country and culture and do not forget about a new language.

So I started taking CBD OIL 3% RAW from, from a company named ENDOCA, in the first experience opening the box and finding the little bottle, in the packaged was not doses suggestions, so I did have no idea how to take it, well, I went into internet and land with my research in a yahoo page and was some guy than want to try CBD OIL for a week, so I check it out and this young dude starts with a very hi doses, like 30ml per day, and I was like really surprised, but I said to my self, no play no game, let’s do that, so I got a full pipet with the oil and took to of them full up, and then climb on my bike and when directly to the gym.

When I got there nothing happens, I feel nothing in special, after in the warming up stage I was, as usual, very rising my cardiac frequency, feeling the anaerobic taking place, nothing relevant to say so far.

So I jump into the other stage of the training routine, that was lifting, pushing and muscle pumping, medium weight to a decently heavy, I use to combine in the recovering time with some abs crunching and then I starting feeling a bit different, my esqueletong felt more elastic, and my capacity increase in a huge abundance, I was so fresh, active and wanting more, the oxygenation was remarkable more effective, so I reach a level than never happen before.

Now we are in process of creating a formula for athletes, I’m working directly with organic hemp producers and a certified CO2 extraction company, based in Europe, where they love to do things right and looking deep in details.

Working directly with different ages and sports disciplines, the results so far are really stunning.

2 doctors are develope the products and the products are working very well in front the, we also have athletes in MMA Fighting and Pro Wrestling also my partner a professional Rock climber how is taking the whole protocol and taste it the field, the reactions and feedback are insane and they are anti-doping tested ..so everyone can use it

Rock climbing

Crossfit

Gym training

Swiming

Aerobics and anaerobic

So imagine if you can increase your power, endurance and recover faster and more effective than never before?

In the next weeks, we will make more announcements about this unique experience.

Thanks to all, love to all.

MEDICAL CANNABIS AND THE POWER OF WOMAN

Cannabis in obstetrics and gynecology

Women consume cannabis for therapeutic purposes since ancient times. Today, science indicates that THC and CBD could be safe alternatives to treat many gynecological conditions. Read on to find out about current research and how cannabis derivatives can help women throughout their lives.

The use of medical cannabis and women’s health have been related since the man knows the herb. The use of cannabis in ancient obstetrics and gynecology seems to reveal a connection between the nature of women and the uniqueness of the female flower of cannabis. Throughout history, cannabinoids have acted as great allies in various diseases related to our complex reproductive system. And today, the growing cannabis market offers oils, bath products, capsules, topical creams and even buffers with THC, CBD or a combination of both cannabinoids.

THE CANNABIS AND THE HISTORY OF GYNECOLOGY

Archaeologists discovered references to the use of medical cannabis for women’s health in texts from ancient Mesopotamia from around 2000 B.C. At this time, the herb was mixed with other plant substances to treat menstrual pain, and since then, women around the world have consumed weed for many reasons. This fragrant plant was included even in the Egyptian pharmacopeia, where it is mentioned many times in the medical texts of ancient Persia, and was consumed by women from all over the Mediterranean and Europe. The same happened in India and in the Chinese Empire, as indicated in a detailed historical analysis conducted by Ethan Russo.

The herb used to be administered through methods quite similar to those currently used: orally, rectally, vaginally, topically and by fumigation (when inhaling the smoke from the burning of cannabis flowers). We can find clear descriptions of these methods in ancient medical texts, with specific references to gynecological symptoms and diseases to be treated. Among these conditions are painful cramps, bleeding, infections, swelling, menstrual disorders or menopausal symptoms. Cannabis also helped relieve contractions and facilitate the process of childbirth, but it was also used to cause abortion. This is a particularly enigmatic aspect.

CANNABIS IN GYNECOLOGY BEFORE PROHIBITION

During the 19th century, cannabis derivatives were included in official pharmacopoeias to treat a wide range of diseases, and their use in gynecology was recommended by the leading eminences of medicine, as well as Queen Victoria. This intelligent queen was also the Empress of India, where many herbs and natural remedies came from. Centuries after his death, she became famous in the cannabis community worldwide, as it was discovered that she used cannabis tincture to relieve his menstrual cramps.

Irish physician William Brooke O’Shaughnessy continued Queen Victoria’s line by validating traditional cannabis use in India, discovering new applications and recommending cannabis extracts for a wide variety of therapeutic purposes. O’Shaughnessy noted the effectiveness of cannabis in reducing uterine bleeding, and in the mid-1900s, doctors promoted cannabis tinctures for menstrual conditions and other diseases of women. A new branch of clinical research on cannabis was being initiated where women’s health was included, but then the ban came and everything changed.

THE RENAISSANCE OF CANNABIS IN THE HEALTH OF WOMEN

After the dark era of the ban, which today is not much brighter, the science behind centuries of anecdotal data was beginning to be confirmed thanks to a great deal of new research.

Endocannabinoid system

(ECS) It is a very important regulatory network with functions related to mood, metabolism, appetite, immune system response, memory and pain perception. Ultimately, one of the main tasks of the SEC is to help the body maintain a state of internal balance known as homeostasis.

The ECS plays a role in female hormonal balance and in reproductive processes. Cannabinoids derived from cannabis are capable of interacting with the cannabinoid receptors of our body, and this is where “magic” arises.

MENSTRUAL PAIN

Today, we have strong evidence on the properties of cannabis to relieve pain, both in clinical studies and in patient experience. The research also confirms the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis derivatives, which can help reduce pain. Today, more and more women consume cannabis in various ways to treat Painful symptoms such as uterine inflammation and other problems related to menstruation.

Despite that, there is no rigorous study that has investigated the properties of cannabis against nausea during a woman’s menstruation. That said, THC is famous for its antiemetic properties, and the compound has been involved in the treatment of chemotherapy for years. Research on the specific effects of cannabis on menstruation pain is also lacking, but it has been found that the interaction between THC and estrogen provides greater pain relief. This result leads to the conclusion that cannabis could be more effective in relieving pain in women than in men.

PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME

There is very little research available on the effects of cannabis on premenstrual syndrome, despite the known benefits for pain, muscle tension, headache and mood. Women who live in areas where cannabis is completely legal are more likely to try products that contain THC and CBD when it comes to relieving premenstrual syndrome symptoms related to mood. In most of the world, CBD products can be consumed as a home treatment for the conditions mentioned above, including anxiety and mood disorders caused by premenstrual syndrome.

ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is a fairly common and painful health problem that causes the internal tissue of the uterus to grow elsewhere, generating severe pelvic pain, scarring and risk of infertility. Endometriosis affects approximately 1 in 10 women worldwide during their fertile years.

A recent online survey showed that Australian women with endometriosis who consumed cannabis flowers or extracts, CBD oil, applied heat and made changes to their diet, were the most successful in terms of pain reduction. Physical interventions such as yoga, stretching and exercise were rated as less effective. Despite these findings, the most common remedy for endometriosis pain control is still anti-inflammatory medications, although they have considerable side effects.

SEX

One study showed that 68.5% of women who used marijuana before sex had a more pleasant experience. In most cases, women who consume small amounts of cannabis experience an increase in sexual desire, while higher doses of THC have a negative effect. The positive effect of cannabis on anxiety can also be reflected in sexual life, and also has the capacity to increase physical sensitivity. Although cannabis use during sex has always been popular, research has not provided clear evidence of how sexual experience improves. And it is not an easy task.

However, new health care companies involved in the legal cannabis business have been developing products with cannabinoids aimed at improving sexual life. These products contain THC, CBD, or a combination of both, and come in the form of lubricants, creams, soothing oils, suppositories and, of course, a large number of sweet aphrodisiac edibles. Consumer opinions are largely positive, particularly with regard to pain reduction during or after sex.

CANNABIS FOR MONTHLY DISORDERS


Medicine prior to industrialization considered that “Indian hemp” had a great capacity to increase uterine contractions during childbirth, while also being beneficial against bleeding. There may still be a lot left for us to see edibles or vaporizers in the delivery room, but it is something worth to explore.

The Washington University School of Medicine in Seattle has initiated a study recently called “The Moms + Marijuana Study. For the first time, researchers are trying to assess whether cannabis use to relieve prenatal nausea is safe for baby’s development. The results, which will include images of the brain of the developing fetus, could change the way cannabis is perceived in the medical community.

Women who go through menopause experience several symptoms, many of which are difficult to treat directly. More and more clinical and anecdotal evidence suggests that cannabis, and in particular CBD, has the potential to relieve some symptoms of menopause. Research has shown that the endocannabinoid system regulates, among other things, mood, sleep and pain perception. There is also scientific evidence on the complex role of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in female fertility, and researchers establish a clear relationship between estrogen hormones, endocannabinoid anandamide and ECS functions.

In addition, laboratory research argues that cannabinoids may help regulate bone development, reducing the common risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Research indicates that CBD can bind to bone cell receptors, which inhibits the deterioration process and slows the loss of bone density. Despite the lack of conclusive evidence, cannabis use even during menopause can help the endocannabinoid system maintain homeostasis.

Although an adequate combination of THC and CBD could be more effective for menopause problems, it has been shown that CBD is effective on its own in treating sleep problems and menopausal mood, without exerting intoxicating effects. THC.

REDISCOVERING CANNABIS CONSUMPTION AMONG WOMEN

Unfortunately, studies show that women develop a tolerance to cannabis faster than men and suffer more adverse effects from possible withdrawal symptoms. It also seems that cannabis use affects more women than men in the region of the brain that controls “spatial memory. But on top of that, like any other substance, cannabis has mild side effects and may not work for everyone.

Although most people can safely test CBD, greater caution should be taken with the intoxicating cannabinoid, THC. In legal markets, seeds or products containing a ratio of 1: 1 of CBD: THC, or only CBD with almost no THC can be obtained. Those who want to consume THC can also try microdosing, that is, take small doses of THC throughout the day, without getting “placed.” This should also provide benefits such as relief from inflammation and pain, but without significantly affecting the mind. On the other hand, those who are very familiar with THC can choose from a large number of strains.

Finally, a survey of US women. Published in Obstetrics and Gynecology in June 2019 demonstrates cannabis use among women, backed by a large amount of anecdotal data. Of the 1,011 women with an average age of 37 years, 36% reported that they consumed it to treat a specific condition, such as pain, depression or anxiety. Of these women, 16% said they used cannabis to treat a gynecological discomfort such as menstrual cramps. In addition, most of the women surveyed considered cannabis use to treat a gynecological condition.
