CBD improves athletes sleep
Having more and more sleep is one of the most efficient ways for an individual to achieve greater improvements in fitness. Anecdotally, athletes who drink CBD experience greater ease of going to sleep and the feel of a more peaceful night. A possible reason for this could be that CBD prevents adenosine reuptake. When the brain uses glucose for energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) breaks down, and adenosine slowly accumulates in the brain. The neuron-binding adenosine prevents the production of neurotransmitters, slows down brain activity, helps you feel calmer and sleep is induced.
The body metabolizes adenosine as you sleep, and sometime later, small adenosine concentrations make you wake up and the process begins again. CBD that inhibit adenosine reuptake by binding to the same receptors to which adenosine will attach, which helps to accumulate faster and makes you feel sleepy afterwards. For some users, CBD may also have a strong anti-anxiety impact which can help them get to sleep and have more restful sleep.
CBD assists improve physical rehabilitation and may be a great addition to your exercise and wellness routine. As an athlete your needs are different from anybody else. So that doesn’t mean that CBD will work in the same way with you.
