Rabblecast 581 – Protein Shakes, Competitive Sports, Pro Wrestling

People like feeling good. For some, that means working out, eating well, and maybe the occasional protein shake. And that can lead to a few gassy moments as your body tries to figure out what to do with all that extra protein. Just be sure you’re not trapped in an enclosed area soon after having one after a nice workout. Athletes commonly expose themselves to high-intensity conditions regarding their competitive sports, and, inevitably, often experience pain and soreness as a result. This tends to be an issue for them because they end up having to take time off to recover and heal.

There are many professional athletes in many sports are endorsing the use of cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD.CBD is one of over 100 different cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. Though research on CBD is limited, it does show promise in treating a number of conditions associated with athletic competition, like joint pain, inflammation, and muscle soreness.CBD has many of the same potential benefits as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but without the psychoactive effects. Based on what we know right now, here’s why athletes from around the sporting world are getting into CBD and what you should know about it.Fortunately, Cheef Botanicals offers CBD for athletes can be a savior in managing pain and inflammation from overworking muscles or injury. Despite CBD’s relatively mild side effects and natural roots, you should still seek medical advice before trying it. This is especially true if you have a medical condition or are taking other medication.CBD may interact with some medications, changing the way the body breaks down these medications. This is especially true of drugs that are processed by the liver.If you’re new to CBD, start with a low dose and don’t use it before an athletic competition or workout. When you grow comfortable with its effects, you can start to use higher doses and consider taking it before or even during physical activity.

We also talk about competitiveness. Do you have what it takes to win, no matter the cost? Many sports athletes have admitted to being sore losers. The idea of “go big or go home” is often touted in many organizations and locker rooms. What does it really take to be an “Elite Athlete”?

Somehow, we go from competitive athletes to the athleticism of Professional Wrestlers. Pro Wrestling(WWE, AEW, ROH…) are all choreographed performances with predetermined outcomes. So why do we have wrestling personalities arguing over who’s more competitive in the ring? We give our thoughts on this and much more!
