11 Feb CBD Has Arrived to CrossFit 8 Mile
CBD has arrived at 8 Mile!
I’m sure you’ve heard things here and there about CBD(cannabidiol). CBD is a cannabis compound that has been around a while but seen as taboo or misunderstood for a while. With our current day and age of more things becoming better understood and accepted so is CBD. CBD has a lot of benefits that are a more holistic approach then popping NSAIDs all day doing damage to your liver, kidneys, and gut.
87.8% Cannabidiol — CBD— is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis doesn’t get one high makes it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, antipsychotic, and/or anti-spasm effects without troubling lethargy or dysphoria.
My personal testament is I have had chronic shoulder pain for years. About 11 months ago it was REALLY bad. Bad for a while, to the point where picking up my kids was an issue, not being able to sleep, and even to the point where I was taking up to 20 ibuprofen a day just to take the edge off. NSAIDs was becoming so habitual that my 18 month old daughter was imitating me popping pills. That was my wake up call. After a real self evaluation I knew I had to figure something out.
Through numerous steps and action with the right doctors and companies we targeted the problem and surgery was not needed but the pain was still very real. I started looking into CBD and if it was something I would be allowed to take as a government employee. Herbstrong, Charlotte’s Web, Pure Spectrum along with most companies have lab studies to prove that their products as non-detectable THC. It is safe to take without any worries of effecting your state of mind and staying illicit drug free. Once I found that fact out, I said “Ok, lets try it”. Being skeptical I tried topical products and was shocked how it helped and how quickly I felt a difference on a daily basis as well as pre-training. I was waiting for the rebound effect or for it to mask symptoms, only to return just the same or worse. IT DIDN’T! I now use it in some capacity every day. From topical creams and balms, to ingested oils. I have not tried the vape. (I’m not a proponent of inhaling anything)
Finally my daily pain went from an 8 to 2 (out of 10). It was only getting better from there. I started sharing my story with close constituents and sparked people’s interests and they started trying it as well. Guess what? They found the same results! Now being in a position of helping people create a better, healthier life, I knew I had to at least offer and relay these findings to all our members. As of today Herbstrong will be on our shelves!
