CBD in Golf: The Unexpected All-Natural Solution for Better Performance

CBD in Golf: The Unexpected All-Natural Solution for Better Performance

CBD for golfers, does it really work?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabis compound that has been attracting a lot of attention in recent years for its therapeutic properties. CBD oil (also know and Tinctures) is said to help with everything from pain relief to anxiety and depression, making it a popular choice for athletes and golfers alike.

So, How does CBD work?

CBD interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological processes, including pain perception and inflammation. When CBD binds to cannabinoid receptors, it can help to modulate these processes and provide relief from symptoms. Additionally, CBD has been shown to boost levels of anandamide, a compound known as the "bliss molecule" that is involved in promoting feelings of wellbeing.

Pains, Aches and Golfers Headaches  

A recent study of golfers has shown that many golfers suffer from pain, particularly in the lower back and shoulders. The study, which was conducted by a team of researchers at the University of St Andrews, surveyed a group of golfers of all ages and found that almost half reported experiencing pain on a regular basis. The most common types of pain were lower back pain (32%), followed by shoulder pain (18%). However, the survey also found that the vast majority of golfers (84%) were unaware of the potential health risks. Another study conducted at the National Library Of Medicine showed the amount of Golfers who suffer lower back pains in comparison to other sports. Golf Care explain in more depth the common injuries that Golfers face.

The benefits of CBD for golf performance 

For golfers, CBD can provide several benefits that can improve both their game and their quality of life. Most commonly know and talked about, CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and used as a natural alternative for pain management, helping golfers to recover from injuries at a faster rate. In addition, CBD has been shown to improve focus and concentration, two qualities that are essential for success on the green. It can also help to reduce anxiety and stress, which can often interfere with a player's ability to perform their best. For many athletes, managing pain is a constant challenge. Pain medications can be effective at reducing inflammation and swelling, but they also come with a risk of side effects, including addiction and gastrointestinal issues. As discussed, CBD oil is a natural alternative that has been shown to be effective in reducing pain and inflammation. Unlike pain medications, CBD oil is not addictive, does not cause gastrointestinal issues and is all natural! For golfers looking for a safe and effective way to improve their game, CBD is an excellent option.

    CBD Capsules vs CBD Gummies

    Capsules are usually made with CBD oil, while gummies are made with CBD isolate. This means that capsules contain all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in hemp plants, while gummies only contain CBD. In terms of effects, capsules tend to be more long-lasting because they're absorbed slowly by the body. Gummies, on the other hand, are absorbed more quickly and tend to produce effects that wear off after a few hours but taste amazing! Ultimately, it's up to each individual to decide which form of CBD is right for them.

    Professional golfers using CBD supplements

    A growing number of professional golfers are using CBD to help them cope with the pressures of competition and the physical demands of the sport.
