CBD oil is a plant extract or tincture and as such should be a safe addition to any ‘natural’ body building regime. It also has a broad range of health benefits for all users and that includes bodybuilders. From a general maintenance point of view to the treatment and management of illness and disease CBD Oil can offer improved health in bodybuilding and help deal with some of the downsides and issues associated with bodybuilding.
CBD Oil can have seriously positive benefits for bodybuilders. CBD is a powerful cannabinoid found in certain strains of hemp or cannabis. In the field of muscle building, there are 2 main types of supplements. The first is anabolic supplements which enable increased anabolic hormone production in the body. This, in turn, increases protein synthesis which makes muscle grow faster. The second type is anti-catabolic supplements which also help bodybuilders grow muscle faster but without the side effects and downsides generally associated with the using anabolic supplements or steroids.
Recent studies have shown that CBD massively reduces the bodies cortisol levels. Because cortisol is the hormone produced by the body to manage stress and when stress occurs, muscle growth is slowed or stopped. CBD Oil helps to reduce cortisol levels (and stress) which then allows energy supply to the body. This improves stamina and endurance so using CBD Oil before working out will help lower cortisol levels and improve your overall performance and output.

A 2016 study in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry explored how CBD contributed to the fat browning process. Brown fat is a particular type of fat that works to increase energy expenditure, and it produces heat. This allows brown fat to burn more calories, but adults are mostly composed of white fat. In the study, the following was observed as a result of cannabinoid usage:
No, that sounds like a fine theory, but compared to most other civilized nations, we actually are a top executioner as well; and where there isn’t execution, sentences are extremely heavy in the USA, increasing over time as people clamored for more proactive justice, mostly out of media induced hysteria. In the case of Saudi Arabia, I would say it has more to do with the population being more religious, tbh.
Our bodies are thought to produce endocannabinoids by the billions every day. “We always thought the ‘runner’s high’ was due to the release of dopamine and endorphins. But now we know the euphoria is also from an endocannabinoid called anandamide,” its name derived from the Sanskrit word for bliss, says Joseph Maroon, MD, clinical professor and vice chairman of neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. We produce these natural chemicals all day, but they fade quickly because enzymes pop up to destroy them. That’s where CBD comes in: By blocking these enzymes, CBD allows the beneficial compounds to linger.
Correcting a calorie excess with a calorie deficit sometimes works for weight loss, but it can be difficult. First of all, reducing calories leaves people feeling hungry, which can be incredibly uncomfortable. Second of all, weight gain can cause changes to hormone levels and balance, metabolic patterns, inflammation status, and balance within the endocannabinoid system.
