MMA Fighters: Quicker Recovery With CBD

CBD, rich in antioxidants, is known to break up this oxidation-fueled plaque, slowing down or eliminating memory loss, confusion, and progressive memory loss. This is great news for athletes like Hurricane Heinisch and Bas Rutten, and for anyone who wants quicker recovery with CBD and to enjoy a healthier mind and body with the natural, organic supplement.

Former World MMA Champion Bas Rutten: CBD vs Opioids

Bas Rutten is a former MMA world champion fighter, a sport where serious injuries are frequent and even expected. Mixed martial arts training is one of the most rigorous and punishing in all professional sports. Anyone who has witnessed an MMA bout is aware of the incredible physical toll paid by the combatants. In the past, opioids were the customary treatment of choice for pain management in professional sports, and Bas Rutten was no exception.

In an article at Natural News  Bas Rutten related his own experience in a struggle with opioid addiction. Rutten’s is a classic case of pain management with opioids morphing into a crippling addiction. “It starts with one pill, then it becomes two, four, seven, ten, and slowly but surely, you are upping the count, and before you know it, you’re taking insane amounts of painkillers,” Rutten recalled.

Rutten switched from the opioid Vicodin to Oxycontin on the advice of his doctor out of concern for his liver, and thus ran into a second problem common to the opioid class of drugs, which is chemical tolerance. His pain symptoms simply did not respond to ever-increasing doses of the drug.

That’s when Rutten discovered the benefits of CBD, and now he’s joining a growing number of athletes and celebrities who are crusading for nationwide acceptance of the beneficial, non-psychoactive, non-addictive cannabinoid. Rutten, now an announcer retired from the fight game, laments that if CBD had been available during his fighting career he would never have become addicted to synthetic prescription painkillers.

Ian Hurricane Heinisch: CBD and the MMA Now

The WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) has dropped CBD from its prohibited substance list for 2018. CBD was able to grab the spotlight of public awareness thanks to the efforts of athletes like Bas Rutten, UFC fighter Nate Diaz, NFL quarterback Jake Plummer, and NHL player Riley Cotes, among many others.

Top MMA middleweight contender Ian “Hurricane” Heinisch is taking advantage of all of the benefits of CBD in his training and recovery programs, now that it’s legally available. CBD is part of the fighter’s nutrient-rich training diet, allowing Heinisch to heal faster, train harder, and enjoy a well-regulated sleep pattern. He suffered just one professional defeat in his career after an 11-0 winning streak. Prior to his professional MMA career, he was a state champion wrestler.

Heinisch uses CBD for nutrition and pain management but is also aware of CBD’s other numerous benefits. One of the most crucial considerations for professional fighters and other athletes subject to head trauma is CBD’s neuroprotective nature, a characteristic of CBD recognized quite a while back by the US government.

US PATENT 6630507 B1 was filed for CBD (cannabidiol) by the US government in 1999, an incredible ten years before CBD public awareness began to sweep the nation. The patent cites all the benefits of CBD for treatments of a “wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic (restricted blood supply), age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”

CBD Treatment for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

The patent further cites CBD’s neuroprotective properties, which makes it the treatment of choice for athletes subject to CTE, which can develop after concussions or repeated head trauma. A tissue called “tau” is a plaque like substance which builds up in the brain in a fashion similar to Alzheimer’s Disease.
