Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, often referred to as CBD, is a chemical compound found in hemp and cannabis that has significant medical benefits. Athletix CBD Oil is extracted from full spectrum hemp plants and is supplemented by a variety of additional vitamins in nutrients to help amplify the benefits of the CBD. It is an appealing option for Athletes looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Q: How does CBD fight inflammation in the body?
CBD fights inflammation by binding to neurotransmitters in your brain that tell it where and when to fight inflammation. CBD activates your endocannabinoid system which is the largest nerve reactor system in your body.
Q: Are there any additional positive effects of CBD that are non-physical benefits?
Yes there are a significant number of general health and wellness benefits, including stress relief and improved sleep habits. CBD binds to the receptors in the brain to help regulate some of the most primary brain functions. One of these receptors, called 5-HT1A, stimulates serotonin production, which is why it can help reduce stress and improve our moods
Q: What is the best way to take Athletix?
We recommend taking 1ML (1 full dropper) of CBD oil under the tongue once per day- either during your existing morning routine or just before bed at night. The most open capillaries are under your tongue so holding the oil under your tongue for 60-90 seconds delivers it into your bloodstream fastest
Q: How long does it take to feel the positive effects of the product?
For a person taking CBD for the first time, the best thing is to start by taking (2) 1ML drops (1 full Athletix dropper) a day for 3-4 days while your body starts to adjust to the product. It takes about that amount of time for your endocannabinoid system to start functioning at a higher level and to start seeing the benefits. After the first 3-4 days, 1 full dropper per day is recommended.
Q: What are the benefits of the added vitamins and nutrients found in Athletix?
All of the added vitamins and nutrients are there to help bolster the effects of the CBD on your system. The most prominent among the ingredients and their effects are:
- Glutamine -Many cells in the body use glutamine as a fuel for growth and is synthesized in both skeletal muscle and in adipose tissue in addition to the lungs, liver and brain.
- Magnesium - is important for many processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure and making protein, bone, and DNA.
- Vitamin B6 - It helps the body make the hormone serotonin (which regulates mood) and norepinephrine (which helps your body cope with stress).c
Q: Does Athletix CBD oil have any psychoactive side effects?
No, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects. The psychoactivity that comes from smoking or consuming cannabis comes from the cannabinoid THC. CBD and THC both have an effect on the body’s endocannabinoid system (which is the body’s largest nerve reactor), but they affect different receptors. CBD oil derived from full spectrum hemp as opposed to CBD isolate will have trace amounts of THC, but the amount is small enough that there are no psychoactive effects.
Q: Are there certain injuries in the body that CBD has shown to be a good remedy for?
CBD can help your body fight multiple types of injuries and muscle/nerve pain, some of the most common are:
- Inflammation as a result of sports injuries
- Chronic back or joint pain as a result of sports injury or nerve damage
- Sciatic nerve pain
Q: What is the difference between taking a CBD oil derived from full spectrum hemp (like Athletix) or from a CBD isolate?
CBD oil derived from full-spectrum hemp plants, like Athletix, are significantly more effective than products derived from CBD isolate. Since CBD isolate is made in a lab and is not an organic compound, products made from this method lack the multitude of other cannabinoids that come from full spectrum hemp products.
Q: Are there any negative side effects to taking Athletix CBD Oil?
While there are not any significant negative side effects to taking Athletix CBD Oil, this product is not FDA approved and you should consult your doctor before taking CBD oil with prescriptions that are contradicted by grapefruit.
