CBD and Athletes

With many professional and amateur athletes using CBD, it is useful to look at the regulations surrounding the use of CBD and drug testing. The World Anti Doping Agency (VADA) state that CBD is not prohibited and therefore any athlete that consumes it would not fail a drugs test. Users just need to make sure that the products they take do not contain THC. Here at Calm we have all our products tested by a UK lab to ensure they contain no THC before we add it into the manufacturing process.

Famous athletes who consumer CBD include the UFC's Diaz brothers, with one of them saying "It helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that. So you want to get these for before and after the fights, training. It'll make your life a better place.”,

Another fan of it is legendary NFL Tight End Rob Gronkowski who said "“You know, it kills,” Gronkowsi said of his jammed toes. “They’re black and blue, totally killing me. My dad was like, ‘Hey Rob, try this cream out. Use this cream I’ve been using for my back pain.’ So I put it on my toes and instantly I got the relief that I was looking for.”
