Professional Golfers Becoming Obsessed With CBD

CBD has started to make its way into professional sports, including golf. While many golfers stayed quiet on their CBD usage until bigger names like Bubba Watson and others announced partnerships with CBD companies. 
ESPN.com went into detail about CBD usage amongst players. Here's an excerpt from the article
"What used to be a taboo topic, and a product quite a few players on the Tour were using but were reluctant to talk about, has become a growing industry -- now diving into sponsorships and ambassador programs with high-profile players from both tours, including McCarron, Bubba Watson, David Toms, Vaughn Taylor, DJ Trahan, Kenny Perry, Tom Kite and Scott Piercy, among others.

Part of the reason CBD oil has been more popular early on in the Champions Tour is because the players are older, with rapidly changing bodies, and are looking for ways to continue competing at a high level with their grueling schedules."
With golf being a sport that professionals can play into their 60's, it's important for them to stay as fresh as possible as they get older. CBD can help with the inflammations, aches, pains, or arthritis they likely deal with. 
Instead of turning to possibly addictive medications such as Ambien, golfers are turning to CBD to help them get the sleep they need to be competitive throughout the season. 

"The players have noted that they have seen improvements in sleep, recovery, anxiety and focus, and that's where the word-of-mouth testimonials have benefited the companies.

Those testimonials started to spread quietly, as more and more players were using the products but were still mainly unwilling to talk about it publicly -- until some bigger names came out and openly endorsed a few products.

The biggest was Bubba Watson, who announced a partnership with cbdMD in April and displays the company's logo on both sides of his visor in tournament play.

Similar to Functional Remedies, cbdMD manufactures its own products, which allows it to monitor the THC levels, and it gave Watson a level of comfort to openly use the products.

"Just because of, I'm getting older," Watson told TheStreet. "The inflammation in my body, waking up with better sleep. That was the two things I focused on. With a 7-year-old and a 4-year-old at the house, and playing golf all day, I needed some energy fast.

"For me, it was all about sleep and trying to get the body right.""

Along with the typical aches and pains, golfers also suffer from anxiety and and stress the game can bring. 

"Between the mental focus and overall clarity necessary to play a solid round, golf is a challenging sport," said cbdMD director of public relations Dillon Kivo. "That's where CBD can come into play. Again, although research is still in the early stages, there seems to be support behind the idea that CBD can be utilized to help aid mental functions, as well as work to reduce overall stress. The idea is that CBD helps calm some of those intense bodily responses that may result in further health complications, all while working to naturally relax the mind and body."

As more research becomes available, be on the lookout for more athletes across all sports to be using CBD products to help with the pains and anxiety their sports bring.
