Many golfers are discovering CBD but not everyone knows how to judge quality
As with any product, there are lesser imitations available and with so many new brands entering the market how do you know what to look for?
But new users have been urged to avoid cutting corners in the search for the best – and safest – form of CBD to improve their fortunes on the golf course.
With increasing awareness of the many benefits of CBD use among the playing community, Golfer’s CBD’s stringent production methods and safety standards ensure there are no hidden secrets or risks of failing a drugs test.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of 113 cannabinoids identified by scientific research into the cannabis plant. The health benefits are a result of the broad spectrum extract used in Golfer's CBD products. In addition to cannabidiol, their products contains other beneficial cannabinoids and compounds which reduce the risk of disease and boost the immune system.
The combined benefits on and off the golf course make Golfer's CBD the perfect supplement for players who want to feel healthy and produce their best golf. with significant impact on anxiety, focus, concentration, rest, and recuperation.
Not all CBD products are the same
Golfer’s CBD is produced specifically for golfers with Tour professionals and amateurs helping to collate data and improve the product.
And it goes through a more thorough extraction process with extensive testing and safety standards.
Golfer’s CBD director, Andy Dixon, explained: “We can’t afford to take risks working with European Tour and LPGA Tour professionals and we don’t want to put any of our customers at risk of failing a roadside drug test or an employment drug test.
“There are other CBD products out there on the market, which could result in someone failing a drug test.
“In an unregulated market, it’s down to the producer and some people may not understand what they are buying. We have full transparency of our products from plant to shelf and can effectively provide the result of a drug test before it happens – others cannot do that.
“We like to think of ours as the ‘Rolls-Royce’ product. We start with a premium extract and work with an experienced manufacturer to get the finished product. It’s the best of the best”
Working with the experts in their field
The specific process of extracting the ingredients for the various products also utilises combined knowledge and expertise, which has been through years or painstaking research and continues to evolve as new benefits are discovered.
Dixon said: “We have that unique link between the chemists at our disposal and all levels of players so we can tailor our products, specifically to help on the golf course.
“We’ve known the benefits of CBD on the golf course for a couple of years so we are now focusing our research into the other beneficial cannabinoids and compounds which can help with a range of golf issues from nerves and anxiety when you play through to preparation and recovery processes.
“We’re not attempting to compete with all the CBD companies coming into the market, we have a unique understanding of common issues amateur players face from our own experience and several elite players out on tour. This enables us to study golfers of all levels and feed the results back to our expert chemists at LH Botanicals to develop our range and target specific issues using new formulas.”
Know what you are buying
With Golfer’s CBD, there is full transparency. There are no unwanted hidden extras or danger of illegal substances – instead there is a certificate of analysis for customers to feel reassured on safety and knowing exactly what is in each product.
Dixon said: “As things stand you can put anything in a bottle and label it CBD. We know of isolate products that don’t contain anywhere near the stated level of CBD, through to full spectrum products that contain illegal levels of THC.
“I wouldn’t consume any CBD product without knowing exactly what’s in the bottle, which is why we have QR codes on our products. This enables our customers to track the product from seed to shelf and view the certificate of analysis to see exactly what’s in the product they’ve purchased.”
