In addition to sleep, massage, hydration, and nutrition, what are your thoughts on the use of CBD for recovery? Anything to look for or avoid when looking at products? Any you recommend, if you think it is a good idea?
Hey @tuppd! I think it is based on personal experience and if you feel benefits after using it.
I have not noticed a lot of the “benefits” that manufacturers and athletes say it has (e.g. less pain, reducing inflammation etc.). I DO however find that it helps with my sleep more than anything else I have tried… and we all know sleep is crucial for optimal recovery! So personally I use it frequently, especially after hard rides when my adrenaline is high and I find it hard to fall a sleep.
As far as what to look for, you want to make sure it is full spectrum, organic and third party tested. My personal favorite is Seven Points CBD. Great company and great products. Their body repair balm is also incredible!
