A Whole in One
As CBD and Hemp permeate almost every aspect of life, you may or may not be surprised to know that PGA Tour players are starting to use and rep CBD products. Bubba Watson calls CBD a “no brainer” for golfers. PXG staffer Pat Perez says it’s been “a total game-changer” for him. Whether it’s managing anxiety or dealing with typical aches and pains, one could argue that golfers are possibly the ideal audience for CBD products.
For starters, let's get one thing clear: CBD does not get you “high.” It has been said to promote relaxation, relieve pain, and assist in post-workout recovery. According to the Executive Director of the Anti-Doping Program at the PGA Tour, CBD itself is not prohibited. Even the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the organization that governs banned substances for events like the Olympics recently removed CBD from its prohibited list. It’s careful to distinguish CBD from its cannabis counterpart, THC, which remains illegal.
On the Fairway
If you’re a golfer, you’ve likely experienced some type of acute or chronic pain. Maybe you pop some ibuprofen before (and after) a round but don’t completely understand the impact NSAIDs can have on the kidney and liver. Perhaps you haven’t tried CBD because you had no idea what it was or didn’t have a way to separate legitimate industry leaders from those schlepping contaminated (and potentially dangerous) junk products. That’s where 5E comes in!
On the Green
As golfers and the golfing world embrace CBD and Hemp products, it only furthers the disassociation from its stigma, because golf is primarily a mainstream, affluent sport. It might even help your golf game. CBD is the latest and fastest-growing alternative health trend in the United States, because it is a healthy alternative to pain medication. For golfers, many ailments are a daily fight, be it mentally or physically.
Sink the Putt
Do you ever wonder why you have recently seen golfers like Tiger Woods & Phil Michelson chewing gum on the course? Well, it's not regular chewing gum, it is CBD/Hemp gum. Are you tired of not having the confidence with your short game you previously had? Finally, the days of you stressing over a 3 foot putt are over. CBD helps with anxiety and promotes a calming effect.
