How Can CBD Help Athletes?

Working out, getting in shape and competition can take its toll on the human body. This is especially true with competitive sports. For many athletes and fitness buffs, CBD may be just the thing they need to help achieve peak performance.

More and more athletes now use CBD oil for a variety of reasons. Of course, the most common reason given is to support recovery after a hard workout or rough day on the field or court. But this isn’t the only benefit reported by athletes who use CBD oil.

More and more sports celebrities, coaches, athletic trainers, and medical professionals are speaking out about the potential benefits of CBD oil for athletes. They’re pointing to CBD’s support for joints and muscles and other immediate benefits such as increasing focus and energy and promoting calmness before and during competition.

How Can CBD Oil Help Athletes Help Achieve Peak Performance?

Being athletes ourselves, we get this question quite often, so in addition to the well know benefit of enhancing recovery, let’s take a quick look at some of the other potential benefits that CBD oil might have to offer for athletes.

Helping to Maintain Healthy Muscles and Joints

All athletes rely on their body to not let them down and keep you in the game — to run quickly, to jump high, to hit hard. In order to be your best, we end up putting our bodies through tough training and even tougher games, matches or competitions that can sometimes wear it down. CBD can provide a helping hand to the body’s muscles and joints, giving them a little extra support in dealing with the strenuous activity that athletes are so familiar with.

NXTGEN’s topical Recovery Cream and Muscle and Joint Rub are both specifically formulated to enhance an athlete’s ability to recover quickly and maintain peak performance.

Supporting Focus and “Flow”

CBD oil does not cause a high, but it is often used to enhance mood and increase focus. Many athletes also claim that it helps them achieve what they call a state of “flow” in which their reactions become seemingly automatic.  Basically, many athletes feel that CBD helps get them into the “zone.”

Supporting a Sense of Calm

Even the pros sometimes feel nervous before a big game or competition. There are quite a few natural methods for easing this nervousness, such as breathing techniques, meditation and yoga, and CBD is now becoming another popular method. Many athletes claim that CBD helps to promote a sense of calm before or during competition.

Sleep and Relaxation

Getting a good night’s sleep is a crucial component in achieving peak performance. It helps make the mind sharper and increases energy. CBD can be used to support a good night’s rest so that athletes can wake up on the day of a big game feeling refreshed and energized.

You Can See How CBD Helps Athletes Achieve Peak Performance

As you can see, CBD might provide a number of potential benefits for athletes. We’ve personally experienced all of the beneficial effects that CBD has to offer athletes, but this natural extract is also easy to incorporate into everyday life — just add some tincture to your smoothie or have a softgel or gummy before heading out to the gym.


At NXTGEN Nutrition, we developed our products with the athlete in mind.  We use the purest oil and organic ingredients in all of our products, and all of our products are 100% THC Free.

CBD is Being Used by Athletes Around the World

Don’t just take our word for it. At the start of 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) acknowledged the benefits of CBD oil and officially removed it from its list of banned substances. Thanks to that decision, thousands of athletes are now allowed to use CBD without the fear of adverse consequences. But it is still very important that the CBD you take is 100% THC FREE! 

The time has never been better to find out if CBD can help you bring your game to the next level. Try it out or contact us with any questions today!
