The Athlete's Guide to CBD by Scott Douglas ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

"Whether you're a professional who's looking for a way to manage the rigors of a long season, a weekend warrior trying to best his neighborhood peers, or simply a health-conscious individual looking to find the right balance in your life, understanding the function and benefits of CBD can be eye-opening." --Tiki Barber

The wellness world is buzzing about CBD, the natural pain reliever that reduces inflammation, speeds up recovery, helps with anxiety, and improves sleep. These qualities make CBD a "holy grail" product for athletes and active people, but there's still a lot of confusion around the product. With oils, capsules, powders, and balms on the market, what method should you use for the results you want to see? Where should you buy it, and what should you look for when purchasing it?

In this comprehensive guide, veteran sports author Scott Douglas breaks down the many ways athletes can benefit from using CBD products, and answers all the questions that the "CBD-curious" might have. With input from leading industry analysts and testimonials from athletes of all levels, The Athlete's Guide to CBD gives you everything you need to know to determine if and how CBD can work for you.

I find when I mention CBD to people they automatically think they will get high. Scott Douglas has written a great book with all the information one would need to decide if CBD would be helpful for them in their training. Douglas breaks down the difference of CBD and THC, how the CBD/THC is extracted, the different dosages, methods of administering (tincture, pill, topical etc) and which is more helpful for an athlete. Resources, studies and interviews from other athletes help a lot. I learned a lot that I didn't know about CBD, especially how our bodies (especially the endocannabinoid systems work) work & can use it CBD. 

A great resource for anyone wanting to learn more about CBD especially athletes. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

  1. Athletes can benefit from a wide variety of CBD products when training. Some of these products include CBD wax & oil catridges, CBD lotions, salves & creams, CBD tinctures, CBD drinks & shots, and CBD capsules. Each method of CBD consumption will provide you with its own unique properties that you require for your vigorous training routine. Follow on Pinterest
