CBD is becoming a big deal in the golf community.
Two-time Master’s winner, Bubba Watson, signed a deal with a CBD brand. Numerous other pros are using it. The leading golf publication and the worldwide leader in sports are talking about it.
It’s no secret golfers (and any athlete) are always looking for a competitive edge, but is CBD just hype? Or can it really help your golf game?
Let’s take a quick look.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD For Golf?
There are numerous potential benefits of CBD that may prove to be worthwhile for golfers. From its anti-inflammatory properties to anxiety relief, improved focus, and sleep, CBD has vast potential to boost your health. For many golfers, CBD has become part of their daily health regimen and their pre- and post-round routine.
So why might that be?
Pain & Inflammation
As we’ve discussed previously, CBD can help with your post-workout recovery. This certainly applies to the golf course.
As a round progresses, muscle soreness, stiffness, and any lingering injuries can creep into the picture. Ensuring your body stays limber and pain-free can help prevent late-round mistakes due to soreness or fatigue.
Common ailments for golfers include arthritic inflammation, back, and neck pain. Every golfer has likely gone home and woke up the day after a round with some aches and pains that not even the famous Transfusion drink can cure on the 19th hole.
But perhaps our signature Transfusion-flavored CBD products can.
CBD oils, gummies, and muscle balms can help soothe muscle soreness. This can help with your post-round recovery and even while you’re out on the course.
Ingest a CBD product for full-body effects or even rub the balm or oil directly into the areas of concern for targeted relief.
CBD has been shown to produce a calming effect that can help reduce anxiety. CBD can lower our heart rate and blood pressure, helping us manage those first tee jitters.
You know the feeling — those nerves emerge on the first tee, leaving you prone to hitting a bad shot due to pressure and stress we brought along from our lives away from the course. Maybe you hit traffic on the way there, struggled to find parking, or even just had too much coffee before your round.
CBD can step in to help you mellow out. Some CBD products, or continued use during a round, can produce long-lasting benefits that may make you less anxious for an entire round. This has a trickle-down effect as it helps you...
Improve Your Focus
We all know that golf requires an intense amount of focus. Unfortunately, the game has its share of distractions, both on the course and in your head. High-pressure putts come to mind for sure. So what can you do to calm your mind and improve your focus?
CBD can’t quiet the birds, cars, or the "Brooksy" yelled during your backswing, but it can help calm your mind. With CBD in your golf bag, you can enjoy a sense of relaxation which helps to enhance your focus. Don’t sweat the small stuff — just concentrate on your swing or putt.
Sleep Better, Play Better
Promising research shows that CBD can help us get a better night’s sleep.
How? Again, by producing that signature calming, slightly sedative effect that may result in a peaceful rest. We all generally perform better when we’re well-rested, especially somewhere like the golf course where so much intense focus is required to succeed.
Now you’re seeing how everything is tied together — calm your mind, improve your recovery, and get better sleep. Then, watch as your game improves.
Balance Our Endocannabinoid System
Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a major role in balancing many of our bodies’ most important functions, regulating things like sleep, mood, appetite, stress, and more. That’s why CBD products (like ours) help you restore “balance” to your system.
Your body naturally produces endocannabinoids within your ECS system. But when you have a deficiency, your ECS loses balance and you might feel stressed, have trouble sleeping, and so on.
When your system gets out of whack, CBD can provide support. CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid receptors and helps to restore homeostasis in your body.
Ready to add CBD to your golf bag and daily health routine? We’re betting so.
Our CBD products are designed with the golfer in mind, but perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the many benefits of CBD. Add some warming and cooling muscle balm, CBD oil, and golf gummies to your golf bag, and keep some on hand at home to fully enjoy the benefits throughout your life.
