CBD In Sports
As humans have evolved so have every other aspect of there lives. The way we learn, eat, entertain, and just about every other aspect of our life. You think in the 1500’s anyone was sitting on there iPads ordering from Uber Eats while watching there favorite Netflix series? Similar to life, sports have also evolved in many new ways. Every athlete is trying to find that extra edge no matter how small. So whether that’s using muscle stimulation or using CBD for the first time. Athletes are willing to do whatever it takes to perform at the highest level.
You’re telling me that you think that the best athletes in the world are taking CBD? I don’t think, I know they are. I was one of them. I was a professional hockey player and I saw CBD evolve the last 3 years in the sport like you wouldn’t believe. A few years ago there were only a few guys taking CBD on our team. By the 18-19 season, there was well over half of our team taking CBD on a daily basis. Hockey players aren’t the only athletes that have figured out how well CBD can work to speed up there recovery time with injuries. Swimmers, basketball players, football players, UFC fighters, and they’re most likely several other sports I’m leaving out. Ever heard of Michael Phelps? A million gold medals in swimming, ring a bell? Well, he was smoking long before it was popular as you may remember everyone in the world was appalled when the best athlete of our generation was doing that to his body. As more science continues to come out on the Marijuana and Hemp plant we’re all starting to understand how much these compounds are helping us rather than hurting us.
Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely still a stigma in sports with the use of THC or CBD (the two compounds present in Marijuana and Hemp). However, I believe the sports world is much further along than the world outside of sports. Derrick Morgan is a current Linebacker for the Tennessee Titans and is also a big believer in CBD. He recently made headlines by speaking out about the compound as he urged other athletes to give CBD a try before continuing to take opioids. Derrick stated, “After researching, finding out more and more about it, I realized this is something guys should know about,” Morgan said. “You don’t have to take it, but you should at least know about it if it’s going to help you protect your brain and protect your body.”
These athletes have one job and that is to play the games at the highest level. That means making sure there body and mind is ready to go every time they enter the ring, take the field, or take the ice. They get paid millions of dollars to take care of there bodies and many of these athletes are trusting CBD to help support their rigorous careers. The best athletes our world has to offer are trusting this compound and the ones that have tried it swear by it. To me, that speaks volumes.
