Studying the potential for cannabis to improve human health and well-being is a truly fascinating and ever-surprising endeavor.

Even for we advocates – who include a number of professional disciplines between us, along with the fact that other TRUCERs have been following the literature for more than five years in some cases – and despite our blog posting usually multiple times a day for around three years, we keep finding whole areas we’ve never shared with you.

A lot of these potential applications aren’t covered in the proposed ballot initiative, which was designed to be relatively restrictive to lessen some of opponents’ most visceral concerns, but TRUCE’s mission is education and advocacy about what cannabis can do for folks now – and in the longer run once a working program is in place – and here’s a very interesting area….

…CBD and fitness.

And for the first fact we didn’t know here….

“While CBD was once banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, this ban was lifted in 2017. It is now accepted for use by professional athletes.”

Consequently, “There is a lot of interest in CBD among the fitness community because of its many health benefits.

Whether you’re trying to gain muscle, or just get healthy, CBD may play a helpful role in your exercise routine.

CBD has pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and appetite-stimulating effects that can support post-workout recovery.

It can also be used pre-workout to reduce pain sensitivity as well as reduce cortisol, helping you go harder during your workout.”

Much more in a recommended read… …and by the by, worth pointing out to doubters you know how seldom you see articles about all the side benefits of opioids, alcohol drinking, cigarette smoking and even most other prescription medicines.

The value to harm ratio of allowing cannabis for health is is just that much higher than for most agents and legal drugs.
