Why do golfers take CBD oil?

CBD info

This is not the first time that professional athletes have promoted CBD as a beneficial aid. Major league football stars, basketball players, and even bodybuilders have slowly but surely come out in support of the cannabinoid. This increased interest from professional athletes is also not a coincidence. As of 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its list of prohibited substances. However, CBD’s psychotropic cousin, THC, is still banned from competitions. Fortunately, drug test limits for THC allow athletes to benefit from full-spectrum CBD oils. Full-spectrum products take advantage of the entourage effect, increasing the potential therapeutic value of CBD.

Getting back to golf, not only are there players supporting CBD, but major CBD companies are already sponsoring major tours. Scott McCarron, a professional golfer, recently disclosed his involvement with CBD oil, claiming that it has helped improve his sleep and general well-being.

“I left and tried it about two weeks later when I went home. I measure my sleep with a device called WHOOP, which measures sleep and stress. MLB, NFL, and Olympians use it. First time in a few two years since i have the device, i was taking the cbd oil, i started on monday and my sleep was in the green, that is fantastic sleep, for 7 days straight the first time i took this cbd oil at night to help me to sleep”.

Scott also highlights an important theme: taboo. Misconceptions about the association of CBD with cannabis have caused some athletes to keep silent or avoid the cannabinoid altogether. The truth is that CBD extracted from hemp contains trace amounts of THC, so it lacks any intoxicating side effects. However, the caution in approach is not without reason. Although CBD is accepted by the PGA Tour Champions, official tournament administration recommendations state that CBD oil is consumed at the player’s own risk.

You see, the global CBD market is unregulated, which gives companies free rein to produce oils of inferior quality. Unless players can be sure that the CBD has been extracted according to legal standards, they risk testing positive for THC levels.

The good thing is that there are CBD companies that take product quality seriously and invest in third-party testing. This provides some security for athletes, many of whom would not give up CBD oil once they started consuming it. Bubba Watson, a keen golfer and father of two outstanding golfers, not only consumes CBD, but is also a partner in a CBD company. He claims that his decision to consume CBD was due to “sleep issues and to try to recover the body.”

Even if you don’t reach Bubba’s or Scott’s game levels, their reasons for consuming CBD are surely understood by golfers everywhere. The key is to choose a CBD producer who can verify their products, something Cibdol is proud of. Not only do we offer independent test results on all of our CBD oils, but we are incredibly excited to be sponsoring the KLM Open of golf this year.

Although there is still a long way to go before we see CBD certified as a licensed product in sports at a professional level, the testimonials from high performance players are worth their weight in gold, that is, golden quality CBD oil!
