Which Athletes Use CBD?

Athletes understand that aches and pains are an inevitable result attached to their sport. While many athletes have mastered the art of “playing through the pain,” CBD can offer non-toxic and non-addictive alternatives for pain relief. CBD possesses anti-inflammatory and non-psychoactive compounds that aid in muscle recovery. Dozens of professional athletes now advocate for CBD such as Mike Tyson, Jay Williams, Riley Cote, and Eugene Monroe.
