NFL Player Shares His Experience Using CBD For Sports Recovery


NFL player answers questions about using Herbstrong CBD full spectrum hemp oil

Many in the NFL choose to remain anonymous rather than risk their position in the sport. CBD is still a banned substance in the NFL in spite of the fact numerous players are finding relief in the use of drops, vaporizers, and topical treatments. Players are sick and tired (some quite literally) of the pharmaceuticals they have been prescribed to combat pain and fatigue.  The side effects and addiction of prescription drugs can be worse than the initial injury or issue. One by one, they are turning to the effective, natural and harmless remedy CBD. 

Below are the questions we asked one such player.  We respect his anonymity and appreciate the time he took out of his busy schedule to answer these questions in the hope it will help guide others.  He did this to be of service for you, the reader.

1. What is your sport/passion and how often do you practice per week? How rigorous is training or practices?

I play football on an NFL team.  During the season I am at it 6 days a week including Game Day.  Practice is manageable, but games take a toll on you, especially with how long the season is.

2.  Do you ever feel sore, tired, or get injuries often?

Being sore and getting injured is a given in this league. If you play a lot it’s bound to happen at some point

3.  What do you like about, or what role does Herbstrong have in your recovery/ performance for your sport? Which product(s) do you use?


I use the Herbstrong concentrates to help me recover from soreness and inflammation.  I have the pure concentrate and the 500 mg vaporizer.  

4.  Do you use them to help with anxiety or stress?


Anxiety is not really a problem for me, I use the products for stress relief, along with treating the soreness and inflammation

5.  Do you have a specific routine you follow when recovering from training?


Outside of using Herbstrong concentrates I receive massages, dry needling, PT, icing, and heat. 

6.  What advice would you give to someone who has never tried CBD before?


You won’t be disappointed especially if you’re sore from your sport. It will help a lot.

7.  Is there anything else you would like to share about your sport or experience?

Since I’ve been using concentrates my stress levels are managed in a much better fashion then taking pills or going out for drinks. Your body will thank you.
