CBD vs Ibuprofen - both relieve pain. However, in the process Ibuprofen damages your stomach lining and kills healthy gut bacteria.
CBD, however, strengthens your gut and doesn't disrupt any healthy bacteria. CBD oil is an incredible tool for any athlete, with its ability to significantly reduce pain and inflammation, relieve spasms and aid in muscle recovery.
In fact, CBD has been found to be 20 x more effective than aspirin and 2 x stronger than hydrocortisone at reducing inflammation.
CBD for relief of pain and inflammation can either be consumed orally in the form of CBD drops, or applied topically in the form of creams and sprays such as those by Dr Kerklaan.
