Arnold Palmer once said that in the game of golf, concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger. But nothing can shake the confidence of amateur or pro golfers alike than the presence of pain in the wrists, back, or knees when taking a swing on that first par 4 on the course in Palm Springs. Golf is a game that requires upper and lower body strength to play consistently, but the repetitive nature of the game can lower performance and make it harder to get through all 18 holes. Enter CBD, or cannabidiol, one of the active ingredients in Hemp and cannabis. CBD is gaining steam as a viable method for athletes to help recover after performing and as a means to combat aches and pains associated with their respective sports. For golfers, CBD can aid in sleep, reduce swelling in key areas of the body, and help to minimize sensations of pain so that they can get back on the course and play their best game.
