As known by many, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn’t allow companies to market CBD products – which range from hemp-oil extracts to gummies – as treatments or cures for diseases like epilepsy, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, or psychiatric issues like anxiety or depression. Yet, its growing popularity is a fact. And although the Tour has no estimates on CBD use among Tour players, anecdotally the product’s popularity has increased dramatically over the last 12 months. Due to its immense worldwide popularity, the trend is spreading to the world of amateur golf.
But let’s stick to the world of professional golf for now. Legendary pro Phil Mickelson was spotted lurking at the Masters at nearly 49 years old, back in April. He is always experimenting with new things to try to stay young, powerful and a step ahead of the competition. That includes increasing his swing speed using Super Speed Golf, chewing gum during his round and, potentially, taking CBD oil!
During the 2019 Masters (April 2019), a number of fans spotted Mickelson using a pipette to put a few drops of a liquid from a bottle into his mouth. He wasn’t trying to flaunt he was doing it, perhaps because it looks a little strange to the casual observer. However, to fans who have used CBD oil or have seen others use it, they knew right away what they thought they saw.
Mickelson hasn’t himself mentioned if he’s using CBD oil.

NEW – The CBD pain Patch to relieve you from your pain!
We love it when CBD and creativity join forces. It’s the result of our hard work and finally, we can offer some truly unique pain patches!
Advantages using the CBD Pain Patch
CBD patches for pain deliver the power and pain relieving CBD (Cannabidiol) into your bloodstream. This by absorbing through multiple layers of your skin. Other delivery methods like vaping CBD or taking edibles can reduce the bioavailability (amount of CBD going into your body). As the CBD compounds need to go through the respiratory or digestive system, before reaching your bloodstream. For example, if you take an 8 mg CBD orally, you will have less of the beneficial value than if you used an 8 mg CBD transdermal patch.
CBD Pain Patch dosage
Another major advantage that the patch is able to offer is you never have to remember when to take your next dosage oil. The patch goes to work automatically while you get on with your day, even if you travel a lot, works different shifts, sleeps late or is busy night and day raising a family. The ingredients are released into the skin over a timed release through absorption.
Additional beneﬁt of using patches is that the CBD is supplied gradually and constantly, rather than in a large, single dose. Patches utilize the skin’s natural barrier properties in order to achieve a constant delivery cannabidiol and achieve steadier blood levels as compared to oils, vaping or edibles.
How does it work?
Our skin is the largest organ we have. It covers and protects the body, regenerates when needed, and provides limited but essential penetration. The skin has three layers.
The ﬁrst layer is called the epidermis. The epidermis is the skin’s outermost layer. This is the layer that contains the primary barrier of the skin to the entry of foreign substances. The epidermis is the layer upon which a transdermal patch is placed.
The second layer of the skin is called the dermis. It lies beneath the epidermis and contains connective tissue that gives the skin structure and strength. The dermis also contains sweat glands and hair follicles. This layer of skin transmits the CBD from the patch into the deepest layer.
The deepest and third layer of skin is called the hypodermis. It is deeper tissue and is made of fat and more connective tissue. This layer contains blood vessels which also reach into the dermis and epidermis. These blood vessels are important in the transmission of CBD from the patch to the bloodstream.
CBD Pain Patch Product Description
You will get 2 sheets of 15 patches in a small handy resealable envelope. This is sufficient for 30 days of pain-relieving daily life. Each patch is 3.2 cm x 3.2 cm skin coloured and very discreet.

Runners and other athletes bodies do have special needs. The intense daily workout can put a huge strain on various muscle groups in the body while preparing for a major race or competition. Pure CBD oil for runners can help improve recovery from pain, muscle recovery and other effects of intense physical training.
Pure CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is one of the more than 114 cannabinoids found in hemp. It interacts directly with your endocannabinoid system to make your own body the ultimate “healing” machine.
10 reasons why runners should use CBD products
CBD is commonly used as a pain reliever. It’s mainly helpful when runners need quick relief from pain during or immediately after a workout.
Pure CBD binds to the body’s endocannabinoid receptors in various parts of the body, resulting in a reduction in the sensation of pain in the brain and muscles. Endocannabinoid receptors also increase anandamide levels, which, in turn, produce a pain killing effect.
2. Prevent Inflammation
Runners and other athletes face the problem of inflammation almost every day they practice or do hard physical exercise. Instead of using well-known creams that can have a burning sensation, CBD topical creams can provide fast, soothing relief.
Pure CBD oil works as an anti-inflammatory agent.¹ Using CBD balm and oil in conjunction can prevent joint injury. CBD can suppress swelling by decreasing the rate at which specific skin cells multiply. The cannabinoids in pure CBD oil can also inhibit the production of cytokines (small category of proteins that are used in cell signaling).
3. Sleep and Relax for Full Muscle Recovery
Cannabinoids in hemp can have a sedative effect on most users.² Taking hemp drops with min. The 10% CBD Oil can provide a better sedative effect than popular sedative drugs. Athletes and Runners who enjoy the deep sleep from CBD will experience better muscle recovery and faster muscle growth. When combined with MCT oil you will get double benefits for muscle recovery.
4. Eliminate Nausea
After training hard for hours, athletes can feel a nauseating sensation coming from their stomach. Pure CBD oil has well known anti-emetic effects that can prevent vomiting.
The gastrointestinal tract has its own endocannabinoid receptors that bind to the cannabinoids in CBD oil. The fastest relief usually comes by vaping . Runners may also use CBD oil tinctures to avoid the irritating effect of inhaling CBD.
5. Reduce Cramps and Muscle Spasms
Athletes and runner can often experience muscle spasms and cramps due to repeated use of the same muscles. Muscle spasms are contractions, which takes place suddenly without the control of the person involved. They could last for a short time or be long and crippling.
Applying CBD to the affected muscles can provide pain relief. CBD oil or topical creams can cut the pain and make the muscles relax.
CBD topicals work on virtually all muscle groups, including the neck, arms, glutes, legs and other parts of the body. It will diminish cramps and spasms by reducing the inflammation that occurs around strained or injured muscles.
The cannabinoids in CBD oil connect the endocannabinoid receptors and alter the body’s inflammatory response. This provides an anti-inflammatory effect and prevents any further damage to the muscles and surrounding tissues.
6. Protect the Brain From Damage
In addition to reducing inflammation around muscles, CBD can also reduce inflammation in vital organs such as the brain, heart and lungs. Athletes who take Pure CBD oil before having a traumatic brain injury are more likely to survive than those who don’t. Any athlete who suffers a severe brain injury can avoid a severe concussion by using a hemp oil product like CBD oil.
7. To Recover Faster From Injuries
When athletes are injured, their instinct would be to reach for over-the-counter painkillers like Ibuprofen or Paracetamol. Such painkillers will provide temporary relief from pain, but they have no impact on the time it takes to recover.
Taking CBD products not only stops the pain, but it helps the body recover faster. CBD can improve the healing of all tissues and cells in the body because of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system.
8. Boost the Immune System
During the weeks before a major competition, most athletes go through intense training. Practicing for a long time can have specific side effects on the body including weakening the immune system. CBD products can help boost the immune system. Hemp is rich in antioxidants, which can help the body fight infection. The antioxidants also improve heart health, so athletes can cope with the strain of training and still perform well.
9. Prevent Game Day Anxiety
As game day or an important competition is drawing closer, it’s common for athletes to get a bit nervous. But they can reduce this anxiety by taking pure CBD oil, which is also a potent anti-depressant. If this is the main freight for the athlete, The Real CBD recommend taking CBD/MCT oil 18% for a minimum of 2 weeks before the competition. This is to fill up the endocannabinoid system – it will make you calmer, more focused and in top form for your important day.
10. Lower cortisol levels with CBD/MCT oil
What to look for when buying CBD oil!
It is important to know what CBD oil you are buying, and to spend a little time researching the company or brand you chose is well worth it. Make sure that the company offers a thirty party lab test which contains ALL the cannabinoids incl. the legal amount of THC. This is necessary to get the “entourage effect” because all the cannabinoids work together. If you can find some genuine testimonials or reviews from Trust Pilot you can judge yourself if the company is trustworthy. Usually “you get what you pay for”, If you find an oil dead cheap, it most probably does not have the CBD in it it states. The CO2 extraction is an expensive process and when you use the hemp flowers only (not the stalks and leaves) you need a lot to get a small amount of concentrated CBD.

7 Reasons Why CBD Is Recommended For Sports
Long hours of training and an active lifestyle can take its toll on our bodies. It can involve a lot of wears, and tears, as well as fatigue. Without the right choice of products to counter these, the motivation can go down and sometimes ground you for long periods. CBD oil products have all the components necessary to keep you training for long periods as well as providing fast relief from injuries. With the Cannabidiol’s harmless and effective qualities gaining popularity and acceptance, further research is helping in confirming the medical benefits associated with CBD. These benefits include:
1. Reduction Of Stress And Anxiety
Even after the best training, anxiety can still set in when a goal is around the corner. One of the main CBD oil benefits is providing relief from the anxiety. CBD is an effective antidepressant that has no known side effects. It is a natural product that is not habit forming unlike the other addictive antidepressants like Xanax and Prozac – SO with CBD and your new exercise regime, you can get rid of those dark thoughts
2. Relief From Pain
CBD is known for its unmatched ability to relief short time pains probably caused by an injury (big or small) during training and chronic pains as well. Applying a CBD balm will give instant relief to the painful area, without any undesirable after effects. CBD is also available in other forms like capsules, edibles and tincture oils which are just as effective in taking away the pain. Due to CBD’s anti-inflammatory quality, it prevents joint injuries during training and reduces inflammation.
3. Boosts immunity
CBD has a high antioxidant level that makes it very good at fighting off infections. This not only keeps you healthy in your daily life but also during training. The winter months are particularly infection prone, and by making use of the CBD products, you’ll be assured of a cold and flu-free time.
4. Fastens Recovery Time
When you start training and you “injure” your muscles they need to repair and recover. One of the main CBD oil benefits as compared to other over the counter medications is how fast you experience its effect after use. Due to the ability of the CBD products to perform many health-related functions at the same time, getting relief after ingesting or applying a CBD oil product will guarantee you lesser pains and faster receovery, so you can return to the gym.
This oil is available in 2 different strengths. A 7% if you train 2-3 times a week and an 18% if you train 3-6 times a week. It is quickly becoming our most sold product because of the amazing results people report back.
6. Sleeping Like A Baby
CBD will help you feel calm and relaxed. The compound terpene myrcene present in CBD acts as a natural sedative and improves the quality of sleep. When you have a high-quality sleep, it aids body repair, better cognition, and increased immunity.
7. Helps In Appetite Control
Unlike THC, CBD will not give you the craving to eat more. On the contrary, using CBD will make you feel full longer which will ensure that you do not add unnecessary weight. CBD products will help you to maintain your weight without having the need to watch your diet too much. By improving insulin performance, CBD will make you feel good after you eat.

CBD oil popular among athletes
Nowadays CBD oil is also often used by athletes. The use of CBD is becoming increasingly popular not only in fitness but also in top sport. There are many experiences to be found on the internet about athletes who use CBD for recovery after training. Since CBD is so popular among athletes and the reactions are overwhelming, several sports federations, including the NFL (American Football League) filed an application with the WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) to get CBD oil from the doping list. CBD was formerly a banned substance on the doping list. At the end of 2017 WADA announced, after much research, that CBD would be removed from the doping list from 1 January 2018. This is also the reason that more and more athletes choose the use of CBD.
Effect cannabidiol in sports
Many athletes know that a good night’s sleep and good nutrition is important for muscle recovery after exercise. There are already many reviews and experiences on the internet that indicate that CBD can positively influence the night’s rest and can help to relax. That is why many athletes and athletes choose to use CBD after training. A number of sports in which CBD is becoming increasingly popular are fitness, American Football, and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).
CBD oil effect
At the moment there are many different studies on the effect of CBD oil. For example, there are several universities and institutions that focus on the effects of CBD on the body. One of the most striking researches is the 2013 study which was carried out by Saõ Paulo University. The research focused on the effects of CBD at sleep. The results of this study were overwhelming and showed that a higher dose of CBD can positively influence sleep and also help you sleep longer and deeper. Although the results are promising, no official claim can be made to the effect of CBD to this day.
