CBD For Tennis Injury: Cannabidiol On The Court
Kirsten Thornhill |
In the sporting world, CBD (cannabidiol) is the ‘new kid on the block’ when it comes to therapeutic injury relief. This hemp-derived chemical compound has been gaining momentum across the country and shows no signs of slowing down.
In a recent survey, it was found 14% of Americans say they use CBD products, with 40% of these users consuming the compound specifically for pain relief. This leads us to our topic for today: using cannabidiol on tennis courts.
Who doesn’t love a quick game of tennis? It’s one of the most popular sports in the world. According to the Tennis Industry Association (TIA), there are currently 17.9 million people picking up racquets and venturing onto local courts across the United States alone.
There’s a huge appetite for this competitive sport and it only seems to be growing in popularity. For a tennis player to get the most out of a game, they want to be sharp, on-the-ball, and ready for action. Whilst tennis may not seem like a ‘dangerous’ sport, minor injuries can be picked up very easily.
These minor injuries can have a negative impact on a player’s day-to-day life, casting a gloomy shadow over all the fun and joy you experienced during game time. Before long, an aching elbow or a soar ankle can turn into a real bugbear, irritating you to the point where you wish you had never played the game.
For professional tennis players, minor injuries can be all too common. When you’re consistently pushing your body to perform at the highest level, it can put a significant amount of stress on your muscles. Tennis players can often find themselves in a vicious cycle - once you injure a certain part of your body, it becomes more susceptible to re-injury.
Whether you’re a professional or amateur player, if you’re unfortunate enough to sustain an injury that is causing severe pain, you may be unable to pick up a racquet again for many months. At this point, your priority should be to focus on recovery.
So, what does effective recovery look like? Well, it’s going to vary depending on the nature of your injury. There are lots of proactive steps that you can take to get back in competitive shape, such as eating healthy foods, taking an ice bath, getting some extra sleep.
However, these proactive steps do not always provide targeted relief. If the injury is particularly painful, you are going to want some targeted relief to help soothe the pain. Let’s take a look at how CBD can provide a sense of calm and wellbeing during times of recovery.
CBD is one of more than 100 chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, extracted from hemp plants. This particular chemical compound has been attracting attention in the wellness industry, with various scientific studies confirming it may help to treat a range of conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety.
At Nanocraft CBD, many of our recovery products are made using broad-spectrum hemp oil. This means that we utilize a range of different cannabinoids, with the exception of THC, to deliver the ‘entourage effect’ and maximize the therapeutic benefits of consumption.
CBD Muscle & Joint Stick for Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow can be a result of constant strain on the elbow joint and overuse of the tendons and muscles surrounding the joint leading to tendon inflammation in the elbow. Most medical professionals advise you to treat tennis elbow immediately to prevent it from becoming chronic.
Nanocraft’s 250-milligram CBD Muscle and Joint Stick can be used to instantly treat tennis elbow, providing a sense of calm and wellbeing during times of recovery whilst targeting the pain in your elbow.
The stick can be applied to your skin in the same way you would use deodorant - it’s that simple!
Daytime CBD Oil Tincture Drops for Sprained Ankle
It’s no secret that tennis involves a lot of rapid pivoting and general movement. This sport definitely keeps you on your toes! This can, however, put a lot of strain on your ankles which can lead to falling. If you’re unlikely enough to fall at the wrong angle, you could sprain your ankle, causing damage to ligaments.
Nanocraft’s Daytime CBD Oil Tincture Drops can help you on your journey to recovery. Our CBD drops contain nano-emulsified, broad-spectrum CBD with a unique blend of vitamin B-12, CoQ10, ashwagandha, rhodiola, l-theanine and organic caffeine to give you a natural, sustained glow.
