CBD and sports injuries ?

Professional athletes and sports people often get injured, it comes with the territory. But when they do its imperative that they rehabilitate and recover as soon as possible so they dont lose too much of their sharpness and form.  Generally many athletes would rely on prescribed opioids and other medication to relieve pain and conditions, the likes of inflammation and chronic pain.

The adverse effect to this medication is that a high number of athletes end up battling with opioid addiction, due to these prescribed  medications having adverse side effects.

The introduction of CBD into the sports injury field, is a much more therapeutic way of dealing with sports injuries.
