CBD For Building Muscle Mass?

March 28, 2018

One of the easiest ways to make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout is by adding healthy supplements to your diet, and the current one getting all the attention in the fitness/bodybuilding world is CBD.

The medical benefits of cannabidiol are already quite well known, but many people are unaware of the fact that CBD can also be used to build muscle mass. And the best part about it is that CBD can be used either pre or post workout, and it has no negative side effects.

How Does CBD Help?

The reason why bodybuilders need to workout regularly to maintain and continue growing their form is because our bodies no not grow muscles naturally. In fact, our endocrine system produces catabolic hormones (such as cortisol), which break down muscle mass in order to use the amino acids for other functions.  

To counter this dilemma, someone who wishes to build muscle would have to take and-catabolic supplements – and this is where CBD comes into play. Studies show that cannabidiol can lower the number of catabolic hormones in the human body meaning that muscle gained won’t be lost so quickly and it makes it easier to gain mass quicker. Keep in mind that CBD should not be taken with caffeine, at least not for this purpose. Caffeine promotes the production of catabolic hormones so it would only counter the effects of CBD.

To Summarize

If you’re interested in toning up and building more muscle, CBD is definitely worth looking in to. Not only does it help with size gains via hormone regulation, but it also reduces inflammation, relieves anxiety, and promotes better sleep; all of which can make your time spent at the gym that much more meaningful and effective.

Even though cannabidiol certainly has a lot of benefits, it’s always best to consult with a doctor or healthcare professional that you trust before adding a new dietary supplement to your routine. A doctor can advise you on whether it’s a good option for you, possible dosing suggestions, and how it could interact with other medications you might be taking.

Cannabis advocates have long pointed out that when cannabis is prohibited, people still consume it.
