Two time Masters champion Bubba Watson says CBD — the chemical found in hemp and marijuana plants — can help sustain his career at the highest level
Watson, who recently celebrated his 40th birthday, revealed he uses such products in order to ease the rigours of playing professional golf and credits it for keeping him free of injury.
I see Phil Mickelson winning at 48, so I’ve got at least eight more years of having a shot of winning some tournaments,” Watson told CNN Sport’s Don Riddell.”
‘I’ve done my research’
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed the compound from its list of banned substances last year but, due to its link with cannabis, it still holds a certain stigma in sport.
The PGA Tour, on which Watson plays, issued a warning to all its players in early April, saying: “As with all supplements, the PGA Tour warns players who inquire about CBD products that there is no guarantee a supplement contains what is listed on the label, therefore there is a risk that a supplement may contain a prohibited substance.
“Emotional Bubba Watson reveals quit thoughts last year. However, Watson is confident that his use of the product is well within the legal framework of the game.”I’ve had doctors involved to do my research and see what companies out there make a product that’s safe for me and safe for my family. It was a no brainer,” said the 12-time PGA Tour winner.”There’s no bad stuff in it, there are no chemicals in there that will mess you up or make you fail a drugs test. There are certain companies we trust.
“The American has recently entered into a partnership with cbdMD, a company which produces a variety of cannabidiol goods.
Bubba Watson, has officially partnered with Team cbdMD.
“I’ve personally felt the benefits of cbdMD’s products,” said Bubba Watson. “cbdMD is the safest on the market and I am proud to partner with them to help millions feel better.”
Watson will feature the cbdMD logo on both sides of his headwear at all PGA Tour events. The deal also includes a wide range of additional, integrated marketing opportunities to promote the cbdMD brand
Mickelson and Woods taking CBD
Tiger Woods is chewing gum at the 2019 Masters, and golf fans are wondering why and if Woods is chewing CBD oil gum to calm his nerves.
While there’s a set of data to suggest there’s a reason to chew gum — any kind of gum — some speculate Mickelson and Woods are chewing CBD gum, maybe from CBD oil.
At the 2019 Masters, a number of fans spotted Mickelson using a pipette to put a few drops of a liquid from a bottle into his mouth. He wasn’t trying to flaunt he was doing it, perhaps because it looks a little strange to the casual observer. However, to fans who have used CBD oil or have seen others use it, they knew right away what they thought they saw.
The PGA Tour and World Anti-Doping Agency don’t consider CBD oil as a performance-enhancing drug, but rather a supplement. The proliferation of CBD oil products — drops, gum, lotions, wipes — has spread throughout the PGA Tour. But people notice when Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson do something different more than the average PGA Tour card holder.
Mickelson was spotted ingesting something from an eye dropper. While we don’t know what it was, lefty looked sketchy while doing it.
Now, speculating on what is in that bottle will yield no results. Only further speculation. But the reality is, Mickelson looks over his shoulder like a 16-year-old smoking a doobie in his backyard for the first time and is nervous his parents might come home any second. And who knows, he could be right. Masters chairman Fred Ridley might be in those bushes.
It may help with anxiety or prove to be an anti-inflammatory aid, which would help Mickelson who deals with arthritis.
