The SIMPLE answer is… IT WORKS!
Thanks to CBD proponents, this amazing plant compound is coming out of the shadows and into the mainstream for pro athletes to benefit from. Our very own NEWYOU CBD Experts have worked extensively with NFL Retired Players’ Association and others. This is in an effort to help them better understand the role CBD can play not only in helping athletes regain their health, but also perform at their optimal level.
Now, current and former pro athletes in multiple sports have even founded organizations such as Athletes for Care that promote the use of CBD. Also they support further research in this area.

The support behind CBD by pro athletes is massive and growing. Especially with continuing research into its benefits for pain management, inflammation and sleep; since the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officially removed CBD from its list of banned substances in 2018.
The Human Body is Literally Hardwired for CBD
It’s no wonder, when you see the research coming out about the benefits of CBD and how it interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Just recently, German researchers have shown the brain’s ECS may also play a role in producing what’s called a “runner’s high.” This is not just from endorphins as was previously thought; it solidifies the fact that the human body’s ECS is literally hardwired for CBD.
In a recent article in Men’s Health about the growing use of CBD by athletes, former NFL player Ryan VandenBussche recounted his life before CBD,
“We were given opiates by our team doctors. Looking back after years gone by, I’m surprised I’m still alive.”
Today, Ryan and others are on a CBD crusade. So, every athlete, professional or not, will have access to and understand the many benefits of CBD.
CBD Truly is a Blessing From God
Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how blessed we are to live in a time where athletes can fully utilize CBD and receive all the benefits it offers… I only wish I had CBD products like DROPS or CB2 when I was in my martial arts, wrestling and boxing heyday. Thank God we now have access to this powerful healing plant derived molecule!
CBD a Game Changer: 2018 FIFA World Cup First to Allow CBD Use for Competing Athletes
More and More Pro Athletes’ Organizations are Becoming Receptive to CBD
Times are changing as the 2018 FIFA World Cup becomes the first sporting event that allowed competing athletes to use CBD-based products. This comes in the wake of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officially removing Cannabidiol, commonly known and sold as CBD, from its banned substances list.
CBD Will Not Get You High
CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant and is chemically different from THC… which means WADA can distinguish between the two substances when tested; WADA still bans THC.
Athletes, professional and weekend warriors alike, are heralding this change. Many suffer from ongoing joint inflammation and pain. Athletes say having more access to CBD-based products gives them more options when it comes to addressing these debilitating issues naturally instead of relying on pharmaceutical pain medications which often accompany many unwanted side effects. With the opioid problems looming, the news at the 2018 FIFA World Cup put a welcoming spotlight on CBD and its positive health benefits.
Ongoing Research on CBD is Very Promising
When it comes to assisting the body in managing and even reducing chronic pain, as well as supporting the ECS, the scientific community has noted that the ECS is the most important system within the body to maintain health and well-being.
A properly functioning ECS is essential to our health and well-being. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. These include the:
- Organs (e.g., pancreas and liver)
- Connective tissue
- Adipose tissues
- Nervous system, and
- Immune system
