The CBD oil craze continues to sweep the globe. And it’s latest high profile superfans seem to be the world of pro athletes.

“It helps put our bodies back together!”

Although initially driven home by sports sponsors. CBD clearly has a positive effect or the many hundreds of high profile users would not bother.

Its famous fanbase grows daily.

CBD use will Explode…

One of CBD oils biggest advocates is MMA fighter Rampage Jackson. He thinks public perception will change for the better & CBD will be huge.

“It works, and it changed my life”

MMA Fighter Rampage Jackson

“I think people should educate themselves because whenever they hear anything about CBD they think of marijuana, and they think they’re going to get high and you don’t”

– Jackson told Yahoo Finance.

“Anything new, a lot of people are scared about it, but as time goes on, people are going to learn about it and it’s going to blow up.”

He finished.

Other Athletes Using CBD

Because it is THC rather than CBD that is tested prior to sporting events. Many sportspeople across the globe are turning to CBD.

  • George Kruis – UK Rugby Hero
  • Bubba Watson – Pro golfer
  • Dominic Day – UK Rugby Hero
  • David Ahrens – Retired NFL Player
  • Eddie Hall – World Strongest Man 2017
  • Gina Mazany – Female UFC Fighter
  • Kieran Kevan, Champion Bodybuilder
  • Ross Rebagilati – Canadian Olympian

If you are a professional sportsperson and use CBD you must ensure no THC is present.

Always choose a CBD oil that is third-party lab tested like CanaXen oils.

Status of (CBD) in UK sport?

Rather unexpectedly it has to be said. The UK Anti-Doping agency is clearly very up to date and has zero concerns with CBD on its own.

“CBD is not currently listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List, and so is permitted to use in sport. All other cannabinoids (including, but not limited to, cannabis, hashish, marijuana, and THC) are prohibited in-competition.”

– Official UK Anti-Doping Agency Website

Obviously, THC is still prohibited and is rigorously tested for. With medical cannabis now available on prescription perhaps this will change.

Luckily in the UK our sports people can use CBD oil without fear of reprisals – so long as THC is not present in tests!

High Times for Sport?

Clearly, any athlete who is stoned is going to struggle to run in a straight line. Let alone see his performance enhanced.

Even so, any UK athlete using THC rather than opioids. Would sadly still be prosecuted and or eliminated from professional sport.

We should not complain. Major progress is being made day by day!

CBD the Original Alternative

American hockey like any contact sport obviously has its casualties. Up to now, opiates have been the go-to for relief and recuperation.

This trend seems to be changing rapidly, however. After the FDA decriminalised hemp, allowing CBD oil to explode across the USA.

“We were given opiates by team doctors. Looking back, I’m surprised I’m still alive.”

Opioid Epidemic

Over in the states and the UK to a lesser extent. There is an epidemic of opioid deaths and prescriptions are handed out like confetti it seems.

Last week we reported Ozzy Osbourne using CBD oils as an alternative to painkillers. Wife Sharon was concerned that opiates can lead to addiction.

There is little wonder many people are turning to CBD as a natural alternative. With no overdose limit and zero deaths!

The opioid death epidemic is currently sweeping the states but many are hopeful CBD can help to reverse this trend. As it already has done in states like Colorado where CBD oil has been legal for years.

CBD – Performance Enhancing?!

Having been around CBD oil for well over 8 years we know it’s power. It’s restorative and energy boosting properties are part of the attraction.

Why then are hundreds of compounds viewed as performance enhancing? When CBD seems to be perfectly ok?

In our experience, many customers get a noticeable energy boost from products like RawHemp.
