Through various friendships I have had with professional athletes from across the spectrum, dating back to when many of us were in high school, one thing has stayed consistent.
Cannabis is a wonderful, health-bearing plant. While we were younger, it was more of a rebellious reasoning behind our use of cannabis. We were all growing up, exploring our thoughts, ideas, spirituality, and testing the boundaries we can push our bodies and minds.
Which led to many partaking in the process of getting high. Most stuck with weed and alcohol. Some went on to try harder things.
Seeing Rapinoe, who has gone through multiple surgeries on her knees, confirm that CBD has been a remarkable option for her to take over deadly pHarmaceuticals is yet another example of confirmation bias in my opinion of the plant.
Many pro athletes are consistent users of both hemp and high THC varieties of cannabis. Over the past few decades, prescription abuse has been rampant in many sports. I have had friends who have thrown away their careers because they were given powerful opiods/opiates like oxycontin to deal with their pain. And they loved it so much they went on to heroin and tossed their futures away.
So much pain and harm can be avoided, to the chagrin of these pHarmaceutical companies, by legitimizing this awesome plant on the marketplace and allowing this industry to be controlled by the people, and not an extension of the multinational pHarmaceutical corporations known as the FDA.
For most athletes, it is against the policies of their unions that THC is not to be consumed. And for those of you who are athletes, finding a THC free product is of the utmost importance. We do carry a wide variety of products that do not contain testable amounts of THC.

Following the 2015 World Cup she tore the ACL in her right knee and then in 2017 she had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in her left.
