Recovery

Injuries resulting from sports and high-impact activities makes pain and inflammation sometimes hard to manage. Knee pain is one of the most common results from overuse during interval training and competitions. When on the court, the last thing needed is pain that can negatively impact your performance. This is where a quality product comes into play. Many athletes have found the Happy Lab’s muscle & joint salve to be the most effective form of treatment, to help maintain an active lifestyle. For an added benefit, the concentrated salve also contains healing ingredients such as ​​coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, lavender, rosehips, and neem oil.

According to this study, cannabidiol, also known as CBD, contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Even further, this study explores how cannabidiol can reduce overall inflammation in the body as it “significantly reduced joint swelling.” Keep those injury flare ups at bay so you can continue on with your high-impact training and competitions, to recover and rebuild.


Stress

Added stress can result from everyday activities, speaking engagements and presentations, and of course competitions and tournaments. This study shows that CBD actually “reduced anxiety-like behavior” in study participants. The cannabidiol interacts with receptors in the brain to alleviate anxiety created from stressful environments. The chill pills contain CBD and valerian root as an added benefit, which is known to reduce stress and anxiety by slowing down nerve cell activity. The combination of these natural ingredients can soothe your nervous system and calm the mind.


Sleep

Getting enough sleep and daily rest is essential when recovering from high intensity activities and training. This study shares that CBD can treat a number of anxiety-related conditions, even improving sleep over time. Anxiety can cause insomnia and other complications, preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep. The Happy Lab’s good night pills also contain melatonin in addition to CBD, which is a natural hormone that alerts your body when to go to sleep and when to wake. Added chamomile is also very calming, to help you fall asleep faster.
