Cannabis As A Training Tool
Both hemp and cannabis can be extremely helpful to athletes. In this section, we will cover whether or not cannabis is right for you, whether you should take both cannabis and hemp, and lastly where, when and how much you should be using.
First and foremost, cannabis is not for everyone. Some people simply do not enjoy the effects cannabis has on the mind and body. If you are considering trying cannabis for the first time, I highly suggest you do so with someone who has tried it before and you are in a comfortable environment, like in your home. Many strains of cannabis are high in THC, which has a stronger effect on the mind, while others are high in CBD, which has a stronger effect on the body. Carefully select the strain of cannabis by deciding what desired effect you are looking for. If you have come to the conclusion that cannabis is not right for you, hemp is the perfect alternative. You will still get all the nutritional and medicinal benefits, without the psychoactive properties.
Hemp vs Weed
The Differences Between Hemp and Cannabis
Hemp and marijuana are of the same genus, Cannabis Sativa. A good comparison for cannabis sativa is the rose. When we picture a rose, we generally think of a classic red rose. In fact, there are thousands of varieties of roses that have been crossbred and genetically modified time and time again to create the vast variety we see today. Most people generally lump hemp into the same category of marijuana. This would be like saying a red rose and a white rose are the exact same thing. They look similar, they grow in a similar manner, but genetically they are completely different. Now that we know hemp and marijuana are from the same plant, but are different genetically, it allows us a better understanding of the relationship between the two plants.
Marijuana has been bred specifically for its psychoactive properties over the last few decades, while hemp remained relatively untouched. Recently, geneticist have been trying to eliminate THC from marijuana plants and raise CBD levels for use in the medical field.
It is important to understand that the THC component of marijuana is what produces a 'high' when consumed. Certain strains of marijuana contain very high levels of THC which has a more profound effect on the user.
Marijuana contains high levels of THC and generally contains low levels of CBD. Marijuana has been crossbred and tinkered with for years, in order to raise the THC levels for the consumer to get a more prolific ‘high’. As a result, the CBD levels in marijuana have been steadily decreasing for years. Until recently, CBD was a less desired component of marijuana intended for recreational purposes.
Hemp & Diet
How Hemp Helps Athletes - Diet
The seeds of the hemp plant are not only edible, but also extremely nutritious. Although the seeds do in fact originate from a variety of the cannabis plant, hemp contains little to no THC. A perfect comparison would be the amount of opium found in poppy seeds. The hemp seeds can also be pressed into oil, most commonly known as hempseed oil. Both hemp seeds and hempseed oil are nutty in flavour.
Hemp Is the Ultimate Super Food, it is one of the most nutritious foods on earth. Hemp seeds contain every essential amino acid, which make them an amazing source of protein, especially important for vegetarians and vegans. Better yet, there has yet to be one documented instance of anyone being allergic to hemp, making it available to everyone. Hemp seeds are also an excellent source of iron, magnesium, potassium and fibre. Hemp is also a known antioxidant, due to its high levels of vitamin E.
Protein - Hempseed oil is comprised of 25% protein, which is similar in protein levels to meats and eggs. For every tablespoon of hemp, there are 5.3 grams of protein. The human body can also easily digest the structure of hemp proteins. Unlike many other oils, hempseed oil is high is protein and amino acids, without the unnecessary calories.
The Need To Know Terms
CBD - An abbreviation for Cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that is devoid of psychoactive effects, which is another way to say that it does NOT get you 'high'. CBD is what contains the majority of the medicinal benefits that help athletes recover from training and manage pain. High concentrations of CBD is found in both marijuana and hemp.
Cannabiniod - Naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. There are 480 different compounds present in the plant, however only around 66 are termed as cannabinoids.
