How CBD Supplements Can Help a Golfer Improve Their Game
From professionals to amateurs, taking CBD before and after golf is becoming more common.
CBD has become increasingly popular among golfers in recent years as more discover how the all-natural compound can promote better recovery and optimize peak performance.
As golfers train and spend hours working on their game, chances are their body and its functions are thrown off balance. Dixie Botanicals® offers an array of convenient CBD products designed to help golfers capitalize on the restorative benefits of CBD so they can perform at their best.
What are CBD Supplements?
CBD supplements are consumable products that contain the all-natural cannabinoid CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, comes from the stalks and seeds of cannabis plants like hemp.
CBD can be easily extracted from hemp in the form of a type of cannabis oil called CBD oil. CBD oil can then be infused into various types of supplements, including CBD capsules, CBD tinctures, CBD vape oil, CBD energy chews, and CBD topicals. It can also be filtered into concentrated supplements, such as a pure CBD powder called CBD isolate and CBD dab oil.
Over the years, a growing number of athletes of all types, including golfers, have started to incorporate CBD products into their pre- and post-training routines. This is because without causing any intoxicating effects, CBD interacts with the body’s native systems to assist the body in achieving homeostasis.
Specifically, CBD interacts with receptors of the endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network that keeps many functions crucial to athletic performance – such as metabolism, energy balance, immune system response, and more – running optimally.
Derived from imported hemp and non-intoxicating, CBD supplements are legally available in the United States without a prescription.
The non-intoxicating benefit of CBD products is of particular importance to golfers, as they can benefit from the balancing properties of cannabinoids without having their coordination and mental focus adversely impacted.
How Can CBD Supplements Benefit Golfers?
While golfing may not require the same level of physicality as some other sports, golfers push themselves physically day in and day out. In a day, the average pro might spend about three to four hours on their full swing and an equal amount of time on short-game development.
In addition to the hours spent on the golf course, competitive golfers often incorporate strength, flexibility, and fitness training into their schedules. The everyday workout and practice program can take its toll on the body and cause functions to become imbalanced.
A golfer’s ability to regularly perform at a high level is highly dependent on the performance of their endocannabinoid system and its ability to keep functions in balance and running optimally. Everything from ensuring fuel is delivered to working muscles to a proper inflammation response after a particularly rigorous golfing day is influenced by the endocannabinoid system.
For athletes like golfers, the balancing benefits of daily CBD can help the body and its functions return to balance. This translates to performing at a higher level while out on the course and faster recovery.
Best CBD Products for Golfers
Golfers can incorporate CBD supplements into their routine in different ways. Many take their CBD product at the same time everyday in an effort to keep the endocannabinoid system stimulated. Some have found taking CBD right before they hit the course helps them “find a flow” and “be more focused,” while others prefer to introduce CBD into their systems after a round of 18 holes or a long session on the driving range.
The perfect CBD supplement routine is the one that works best for you.
