I remember when I was a young man how important it was for me to perform as an athlete. I played on a football team as a defensive linemen. I was 6’1” and weighed a whopping 240 lbs.— I was a natural fit on the team. During the season, about 4 games in, I received a nasty broken ankle. The injury left me off the field and on the bench for the remainder of the season. I can’t begin to tell you the humiliation I suffered going from the first string to backbench but I can tell you that the road to recovery was the hardest to bear. 6 weeks in a cast and then another two months of recovery using ice and heat. At the time I didn’t have access to legally consume CBD. But for most professional and amateur athletes,CBD is now a viable option to help with recovery from a sports injury.
