ESPN report highlights CBD’s popularity among golfers

A recent report from ESPN is taking a look at how CBD is wedging its way into the routines of professional golfers.

Among pros turning to CBD are Scott McCarron, who first tried CBD via Functional Remedies EndoSport as a way to help him sleep. Among the reasons McCarron told ESPN he uses Functional Remedies’ EndoSport products is because he knows the company’s hemp-based products do not contain THC that might cause them to fail drug tests.

The report also highlights cbdMD’s popularity among golfers, with the company’s director of public relations, Dillon Kivo, discussing the role it can play in helping with their focus.

“Again, although research is still in the early stages, there seems to be support behind the idea that CBD can be utilized to help aid mental functions, as well as work to reduce overall stress,” he told ESPN. “The idea is that CBD helps calm some of those intense bodily responses that may result in further health complications, all while working to naturally relax the mind and body."

Functional Remedies’ director of Sales, Steve Patterson, noted that the company is eyeing an NSF International Certified for Sport status for athletes in gold and beyond.

“Once we get it, we'll be in baseball in particular, because those guys are so paranoid about putting anything in their body," Patterson told ESPN. "But once you get the certification, it's basically a vetting process. When you have the logo, players know that your products are safe, they're not contaminated, and they feel comfortable taking them."
