In this episode, we revisit CBD (Cannabidiol) but this time take a closer look in the context of sports and athletic performance. It starts with a Twitter debate that Bill & Tom perform in roleplay like fashion. This may or may not have pushed us to make this episode and then we take a closer look at a 2020 Review and see what the current literature says on CBD in a sporting/athletic setting. We also look at the product Beam and its sleep powder.
The main points covered are
Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage - Muscle Function, Soreness and Injury
Cardiovascular (CV) & Metabolic Functions
Illness & Infection
Sports Performance Anxiety
Sleep (This is where Beam comes in!)
Loads of science in this one but hopefully we've filled any gaps that were perhaps left in the first CBD episode. We are not saying it's useless and we hope that in 5-10 years time we are proved wrong but as it currently stands, the results are underwhelming and inconsistent meaning that the high price tags seen on the products just aren't warranted.
