No one is more in tune with their bodies than professional athletes. In a sense, their bodies are their livelihood, and they continuously push their bodies to the limits. Now some athletes are turning to the natural benefits of CBD to help them rest and recover.
CBD has a natural anti-inflammatory reaction to the body that helps with joint pain and muscle soreness. From strength trainers, to runners, to golfers, all types of athletes are noticing the benefits of a regular CBD regimen.
In 2018 the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its list of banned substances. The PGA followed suit, and now more than a dozen professional golfers are touting the plant’s natural benefits.
“I don’t think it’s a coincidence. I’m sleeping better and I feel like my recovery is better. As far as my overall health, I feel great. I can tell the difference when I wake up in the morning and that’s a big part of it. I’ve always had some nagging, aching pains. Anxiety is something I had also fought. That was a real draw for me” – 2009 US Open winner, Lucas Glover
But you don’t have to be a professional to reap the benefits of CBD. Joint pain and muscle soreness are common among people with an active lifestyle. Try our Pain Cream, Muscle Gel, or one of our new USDA Organic Tinctures.
