CBD in martial arts
CBD has also entered the world of martial arts. Gigantic deals are being made, all to reap the benefits of the popular substance. And if the very best athletes are interested in CBD, then it should be clear that this substance has a lot to offer. In this blog, we look at which organisations in martial arts (will) use CBD, and what they hope to achieve with this. It is also possible for you to make the same products that are offered by these organisations.
What is CBD?
For those who didn’t know yet: CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is a substance from the cannabis plant. But unlike other substances from that plant, such as the even better known THC, it is not possible to get high or stoned from CBD. An overdose is also impossible. However, there are many benefits that the product has to offer. And that’s why the martial arts world now want to make use of it.
CBD by UFC – organiser of MMA
The best example of the ever shorter lines between sports and CBD is the collaboration between UFC and Aurora Cannabis Inc. UFC is the organiser of the very popular American combat sport MMA. Aurora Cannabis Inc. is a well-known player in the cannabis world. Of course, this deal concerns millions of euros. This begs the question what exactly Dana White (chairman of the UFC) wants to achieve with such a partnership. Surely, there must be great opportunities here.
A valuable addition for athletes
And indeed, those opportunities exist. UFC wants Aurora Cannabis Inc. to work with athletes to find out to what extent CBD can help the body recover. It is hoped that physical discomfort will eventually be reduced after exercise, that injuries can be remedied more quickly and that MMA athletes will enjoy better health in general. Of course, there was already a lot of attention for nutrition, training and other similar matters, but now CBD is also on that list.
Mike Tyson’s CBD sports drinks
But UFC is not alone in this innovation. Far from it, in fact. Another good example is the ambition of former top boxer Mike Tyson. Tyson’s company, The Ranch Companies, recently announced that they are marketing a real CBD drink: DWiiNK. This product contains about 10 milligrams of CBD per bottle, and is available in a variety of flavours, such as watermelon, pineapple or simply neutral, for those who prefer it. For Tyson and his partner Rob Hickman, the emphasis is on the quality of the product. DWiiNK is meant to offer the best of the best when it comes to CBD.
