CBD Oil for MMA Fighters – The Benefits

MMA, or mixed martial arts, has been in existence for centuries- much longer than it has been popular in the united states. So much in fact that it can now be found at local gyms in every state and it is even shown on sports stations such as ESPN.

MMA is a full-contact sport mixed with various types of martial arts styles such as kickboxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Judo, and Tae Kwon Do and can even incorporate sports such as boxing and wrestling. That all being said, mixed martial arts are a fantastic way to get a high-energy workout (and maybe also relieve a little built up frustration from your work week).

Workouts for MMA can be intense as they incorporate core, strength, power, and cardio for long periods of time to help build endurance. These workouts can also add a lot of strain to your body, so you will need to make certain that you are taking the appropriate care of your body post workout.

Getting a good night’s sleep, using ice packs and general rest have for years been the norm when recovering from hard exercise sessions. CBD oil creams which have been known to help heal your body faster by decreasing inflammation resulting in less pain and downtime between workouts have recently become ever present in MMA gyms.

CBD oil has seen a massive rise in popularity especially in the UK. Recent changes to CBD oil UK law have allowed MMA fighters easier access to CBD products. It will be interesting to see how many more fighters will look towards CBD in aiding their recovery, especially now as CBD oil has recently been removed from the banned substances list by WADA.

Along with strenuous workouts, fighters can receive significant injuries during their match as well. Broken or fractured bones and hand or knee injuries are most common. However, one more common injury MMA fighters face at one time, or another is a concussion. A blow to the head via a kick or solid punch can cause a concussion leaving the fighter out of the ring for months at a time. Because of this, some MMA fighters have also started vaping CBD oil.

Research is beginning to show that vaping cannabinoid oil may lessen the lasting impacts of a concussion as well as to help speed the traumatic brain injury recovery time. While these studies may show improvements, it is always wise to talk to your healthcare professional before using them.

With the growing demand for CBD oil amongst MMA enthusiasts across the globe, and now in the UK with CBD oil UK sites flooding the market, expect to see more CBD than ever in and around the gym.
