Ever get up and think, “where in the world did all these aches and pains come from”? You may not have to do that anymore, thanks to CBD. Whether you’ve been feeling the effects of a new workout routine, getting a little too extreme with yourself and others in sports, or just realizing you’re another year older, here’s help.
No matter how fit you are, sometimes a workout, a strenuous hike, a mountain bike adventure or other physical exertion can leave you sore for days. Why? Because activities like these cause microscopic damage to muscle fibers. The fibers become inflamed, which triggers the body to respond and repair. That’s how muscles stay strong and grow.

I like to pride myself on constantly pushing my mental and physical limits – and, if I’m honest, sometimes far beyond. It’s part of how I served for a decade and a half in some of the world's most elite combat and intelligence communities. But I’m all in favor of not feeling the after effects of physical exertion any more than I have to.
