CBD For Workout Recovery: What You Need To Know

on August 31, 2020

A popular use for CBD is as an anti-inflammatory. The chemical properties of CBD help reduce swelling and pain in the body and that’s why so many people use it for joint pain relief and injury recovery. But what about just using it as part of your recovery routine after workouts?

Today, we’re going to be looking at how CBD can be implemented into workout recovery and how it would fit into any active lifestyle routine.

How Does It Work?

CBD is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant and can be extracted into an oil that has many uses and beneficial properties. In our body, the CBD molecules interact and work with the Endocannabinoid system to help promote the many properties people love CBD for. 

You may be wondering what the Endocannabinoid system is… and it is essentially a part of our nervous system that wasn’t discovered until the 1980s. Although it’s a fairly new discovery, there has been extensive research done showing that this system is involved in a range of different physical functions including digestion, memory, learning, immune and inflammatory response, pain response, and more.

The endocannabinoid system is involved with a vast range of physical attributes and that is why when we take CBD and those molecules interact with the system, we have responses to CBD. 

Whether it’s improved sleep, anxiety relief, or anti-inflammation, CBD’s benefits on the human body have become well known and very popular.

If you wanna learn more about this, we linked to a good reference article here.

Will CBD Get Me High?

No, CBD is a molecule that comes from the hemp plant, but it will not get you high. THC, a different molecule found in the same plant, is what’s considered psychoactive and what causes people who use cannabis to feel “high” or “stoned”. 

CBD is non-psychoactive and will not cause you to feel “high” so long as it is pure and you purchase it from a trusted source. Which we touch on more below.

Making It Part of Your Routine

Making CBD part of your daily routine can have many very positive effects ranging from better to sleep to pain relief and calmness. 

Although recovery routines are unique to every individual, adding CBD to that routine could have many benefits. 

In an article by “Men’s Health”, they quoted former athlete and current personal trainer, Tara Laferrara, saying “As a personal trainer and someone that works out every day and really pushes myself a lot, I noticed the biggest difference in inflammation and stress after a workout”. If you want to read the full article, you can find it here!

To add it to your routine, you could consider taking it daily and finding a dosage that works for you. This takes some trial and error and may not be effective the first time. But don’t get discouraged, many people find that tinctures take a couple of days of usage to really start to kick in and make a difference. 

You could also try the BeSababa Healing Balm on the actual sore muscles and joints to help reduce inflammation and make that soreness just a little bit better. 

Not only should soreness be reduced, but with reduced inflammation, this will allow for more productive recovery and less risk of overuse injuries overall. 

As CBD becomes more and more mainstream, you’ll see how many athletes have begun to use it and rave about its benefits in their recovery process. From pro-skiers to NFL players, CBD is everywhere and it’s only getting bigger. 

It seems like CBD has become popular virtually everywhere, from restless nights to sore mornings, CBD is used and loved by tons of people. We love it too and that’s why we hope to give you only the best and most effective products. 

Choosing A Product

While CBD has been studied and tested extensively, it is still somewhat taboo as a product and can be confusing to people and therefore just avoided altogether. Navigating through the world of CBD products is confusing and complicated and BeSababa is here to help you understand it just a little bit more.

One of the most important things to look for when shopping online for CBD is whether or not the products you’re buying have been third party lab tested and certified to contain the level of CBD that’s advertised.

However, that’s not the only reason to check for these lab results. As a consumer of CBD, you are also checking to make sure that the CBD products you’re buying do not exceed a certain level of THC (usually 0.03% is the threshold). CBD products that are advertised as such SHOULD NOT be getting anyone “high” or “stoned” and as a consumer, trusting the brand you’re buying from is crucial in getting the best products.

Lastly, these results are important in showing that the CBD you’re buying doesn’t contain other substances and is purely CBD. You don’t want metals, pesticides, or other non-CBD compounds in your body. That definitely will not be good for your recovery routine. 


CBD is a natural and accessible product that we love for its versatility and ability to help different people with different products. It is a supplement that can help you sleep, recover, or relax.

While it is wonderful to add to a recovery routine and has become extremely popular for that, don’t forget to check and make sure that the source where you buy it is safe and only using the purest CBD extracts. 

At BeSababa, we are always looking for new and better ways to get products into your hands that you’ll love as much as us. We also want to be transparent and give you access to lab results that you can find, here.

If you want to try CBD in your recovery routine, we would suggest a healing balm for topical pain and our specialized “Recovery” formula oil. Our specialized oils are made for specific purposes and our “Recovery” oil contains vitamin B12, green tea extract, and delicious natural flavors that make it perfect for everyday use or the occasional recovery supplement.
