CBD, the Next Great Recovery Supplement?
CBD seems to be the latest and greatest in post-workout supplement products. Many fitness centers and gyms are selling them behind the counter, claiming they provide muscle recovery. They are piggy backing on the already popular benefits many claim CBD to offer. The most common include anti-inflammatory properties, sleep aid, pain reliever, and stress reliever, all great for post-workout recovery.
Although the science on CBD is in its infancy, many swear by it, and have replaced their pharmaceuticals with what they believe to be a safer alternative. Below are a few CBD products sold specifically for their post-workout benefits. If you have tried any of them, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
