Host Brad Kearns welcomes Jay O’Hare to talk about the healing benefits of CBD (cannabidiol). Jay is a trail and ultrarunner from Steamboat Springs, CO, and co-founder of Venga CBD. Venga makes medical grade CBD that is helpful in the treatment of various conditions including pain, inflammation, sleeplessness, anxiety and depression, and neurodegenerative disorders. Jay gives us a great education on the CBD scene that has exploded in popularity in recent times as a wonder agent with virtually no side effects. CBD works on the endo-cannabanoid neurotransmitter system to mute the immune response to inflammation and help your body return to homeostasis quickly. In contrast, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) block the body’s natural inflammatory processes and generate severe side effects. If you are curious about CBD and want to sort through the hype and the misinformation, particularly the distinction between psychoactive agents like THC and CBD, which does not get you high, this show may get you interested in learning more and trying to support the common complaints about inflammation, soreness, and delayed recovery among endurance athletes.
