If you consider yourself a high intensity athlete, then you’re fully aware that your body takes a much bigger beating on a regular basis.
You work your body, you grind your body, you push it to the absolute limit!
But your body can only handle so much, and can only perform so well if you don’t take care of it.
At the time of this writing, Lebron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he invests over $1 million dollars per year just on taking care of his body.
And we use the word ‘invest’ because that’s exactly what it is… an investment in your temple.
Smart athletes understand this, and that’s why hemp oil is gaining in so much popularity right now.
Athletes want to invest in their body and their health so they can perform at optimal levels.
Why Use Hemp Oil?
Hemp oil has so many medicinal benefits, it’s practically a ‘miracle’ plant.
Unfortunately because it’s tied to the cannabis family, and cannabis isn’t fully legal nationwide (yet), it hasn’t really had the chance to go mainstream.
And that’s exciting to see, because athletes are throwing away the white pills and prescription meds, and choosing hemp oil instead.
Hemp oil has been known to help with the following:
- Reduce inflammation in the body
- Relieve arthritis in joints
- Lowering stress and anxiety
- Improving digestion and appetite
- Improve brain functionality and clarity
- Support the immune system
- Making you feel great and relaxed
- And so much more…
We could write a novel on each point above, but if you do any basic research, you’ll see stories about these benefits over and over again… from real people with real issues.
Furthermore, hemp oil doesn’t have any side effects like meds do, unless you are actually allergic to hemp oil.
And you can’t get high with hemp oil as it doesn’t have any THC, which is the compound that gives you that ‘high’ feeling.
I’m sure most of us reading this knows exactly what that means! 😁
Not All Hemp Is Created Equal
All hemp oil is not the same… it’s not even close. If and when you decide to use hemp oil, there’s a few basic things you need to know.
Let us explain…
First, you need to commit to using hemp oil daily for at least 90 days to really see real results.
It’s NOT a drug like ibuprofen, where you pop a pill and 30 minutes later you feel better. It doesn’t work that way.
Next, you want your hemp oil to have these qualities:
- Made in the USA
- Organically grown and processed
- Zero THC
- 3rd party lab tested
- Have a COA, Certificate Of Analysis upon request
You want to demand quality, and this is what quality looks like.
Btw… our full line of hemp oil products are 100% everything that is stated above. Check them out here.
So as a high intensity athlete, giving yourself the right things, like hemp oil, just makes sense.
It’s a no brainer!
