From the strenuous practices to the long game days, athletes rarely take a break and must persevere through any pain. Recently, a growing number of athletes have been turning to CBD (Cannabidiol) to relieve pain and for recovery instead of prescription drugs like ibuprofen, opioids and beyond. In fact, the basketball’s BIG3 became the first professional sports league in the United States to allow its athletes to use CBD in June –– and this shift isn’t surprising.
Painkillers are extremely dangerous and addictive. A study from Linda Cottler, the founding chair of the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Florida’s College of Public Health and Health Professions, found that former NFL players use opioids more than four times the rate of the general population. CBD offers athletes a natural and more effective solution for maximizing performance without sacrificing their physical and mental health in the long run.
Simply put, CBD is transforming how players perform and recover. If you want to push yourself without the use of toxic, chemical prescription drugs, CBD is the answer.
