Have you heard about CBD? This natural hemp extract can offer a variety of health benefits, making it useful for amateurs and pros alike. In fact, professional athletes in various fields — from MMA fighters to football players — have come out in support of using the substance, claiming that it can be a game-changer. But what makes CBD so impressive?

Let’s take a look into what CBD is, and what it can do for golf players.

What you need to know about CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the active agents found in plants of the cannabis family. It does not have intoxicating properties, nor can it be used for recreational purposes. It does, however, offer a variety of health benefits. This is the reason why, currently, CBD is the only cannabis-byproduct that has been allowed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

It was originally banned, but the WADA created an exception once research from reputable intuitions — including the World Health Organization — revealed the benefits of CBD. Thanks to that decision, a growing number of sports leagues and competitions around the world have started allowing the use of CBD. The substance is also legal for general consumption in the UK, and most of the EU.

As for what CBD can do, here are the benefits the substance provides to golf players.

1 – Pain management

There are many ways to take CBD, and almost all methods have an analgesic effect. Whether you choose to place CBD oil under your tongue or vape a CBD e-liquid, you’ll be able to use the substance as a pain-relieving tool. As you can imagine, this makes CBD attractive to all types of athletes, since daily training often causes pain and discomfort.

The alternative is to use opioids, which come with all sorts of negative effects and have the risk of causing a chemical dependency. CBD often has no negative effects and offers no risk of causing chemical dependency.

2 – Reduce inflammation

On top of being an analgesic, CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties. You can get the effects using some of the methods mentioned before, or you can massage the injured area with CBD oil, which will give you a more localized effect. Either way, CBD will help reduce inflammation, which is useful after a long day of training.

3 – Anxiolytic properties

One of the most famous attributes of CBD is its calming properties. CBD has a direct impact on the levels of stress hormones in your bloodstream, which can help you feel calm and relaxed throughout the day. Since stress can reduce your performance and lead to mistakes on the field, this is quite the benefit for golf players.

4 – Sleep improvement

One of the consequences of the calming properties of CBD is that, in high doses, the substance can help you fall asleep more easily. Proper sleep can increase your performance the next day, give your body a chance to recover from injuries, and it generally leads to lower stress levels. This makes CBD a great tool to use the night before a big competition.
