Pain & Inflammation and How CBD Can Help

Based on who you are and what you do, pain and inflammation are always going to be part of the equation. Every athlete gets that.

But here’s the rub-a-dub-dub.

Anytime pain shows up, it always brings along its good friend inflammation. And if you know anything about inflammation, it likes to arrive early, spread out and stay a lot longer than you would like.

To hear pain tell the story, much of the discomfort you feel comes not from it but from inflammation.

Inflammation is the #1 source of pain — and it uses pain, stiffness and immobility to send the message it wants you to do things differently.

And to you, this is unacceptable.

Now I don’t want to get all sciency on you, but here’s a bit of how inflammation goes about its business:

Inflammation, a natural protective response when the body is harmed, is the result of your body’s immune system kicking into high gear to respond to an injury or infection. As a result, the damaged cells release chemicals that cause your blood vessels to leak fluid into the tissues, causing swelling. And while the inflammation does help isolate the tissue and thereby quarantine the problem, it also causes pain and restricts movement.

So as an athlete fighting to stay in the game, what can you do about it?

Well, you have two choices:

You could turn to either prescription drugs or ibuprofen, often lots of ibuprofen, Tylenol, Aleve, Percogesic and the like, which help address the problem, but at a steep price. Each of these drugs has a long list of harmful side effects that can, over time, damage the very body you depend on.

You could march in the opposite direction and go for an all-natural alternative that is native to and works in conjunction with your body. With over 100 different cannabinoids, Venga CBD supports your body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is involved in regulating such functions as sleep, appetite, pain and your immune system response (inflammation). When combined, this system and CBD work together to release neurotransmitter molecules that suppress the body’s inflammation mechanisms to reduce the pain naturally and allow tissues to heal faster.

As an athlete, your goal is to recover from workouts more quickly, to recover from injury more effectively and to alleviate pain during both endurance training and competition.

And that’s where Venga CBD steps in to help.
