For thousands of athletes across the globe, D.O.M.S. or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is a real thing, and can be a very painful and debilitating condition.
Question: I run track and 2 days after an event my whole body is killing me. What is causing this? Can you help me?
You have D.O.M.S. (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Delayed onset muscle soreness is felt 24 – 72 hours after exercise. It is caused my microscopic tears to the muscle fibers. The reason it is felt so long after the exercise is because the pain is due to the swelling that forms and it takes 2-3 days for that swelling to appear. CBD is an excellent agent to reduce the swelling.
It is already being used by many professional athletes to proactively treat their delayed onset muscle soreness. They use it immediately after the workout and the D.O.M.S. is prevented.The soreness that is felt 1-3 days after a serious workout can result in pain so severe that a restful night’s sleep becomes impossible.
CBD can fix that too. CBD not only decreases the inflammation that causes the pain, from D.O.M.S. but CBD also improves sleep by decreasing the REM stage of sleep and thus prolonging stage 4 sleep.
Stage 4 sleep is the period of sleep when the body is in a totally relaxed state and the time when the body repairs the muscles that have been strained due to the workout. Bottom line – CBD gets rid of D.O.M.S. & CBD gives you a deep & healing sleep.
