Hemps Increasing Use Among Athletes

Jake Plummer was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the second round of the 1997 NFL draft.  He went on to play for the Denver Broncos as starting quarterback. However, Plummer is not your typical retired pro-athlete; he’s also an activist. He has been pushing the NFL to research the benefits of hemp oil for several years.  When interviewed by Fox Sports, here’s what Plummer had to say about the benefits he’s experienced. "I’m 41 and the Broncos need a new quarterback," Plummer recently told co-host Zig Fracassi and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio that. "I’m not thinking about it but the thought crossed my mind because my body feels great after playing for 10 years in the league and being retired. "I owe a lot of that to hemp and what it’s done for me." Cannabidiol is the active ingredient in hemp that aids the body with healing properties and pain management. It exists naturally in the C. Sativa plant.  With some of the same wellness properties of other compounds, it has all and more of the advantages with no risk of psychoactive reaction.

Due to the NFL’s and other major sports league’s stringent policies against any athlete’s use of unapproved painkillers, Jake Plummer has become a huge advocate for cannabidiol use. In addition to yoga, regular chiropractic visits, and an overall healthy lifestyle, Plummer feels better than when he was an active quarterback in the NFL.  He states that the benefits received from hemp oil are more vast (and safer) for relieving pain than the addictive painkillers given to athletes in the NFL. Along with a few other retired NFL players, Plummer has dedicated time and money to researching the benefits of using cannabidiol for pain relief.   The awareness, and use, of these medicinal products is ever-increasing among athletes due to Plummer (and others’) advocacy. The advantages of natural, non-psychoactive cannabinoids and the potential to aid patients with pain and other issues are numerous.   If you are interested in learning more about cannabidiol products, please feel free to contact Hybrid Health at customersupport@hybridhealthhemp.com.
