What can CBD do for me? 1st in a series on the possible benefits of CBD supplementation

First things first – CBD (from hemp) is legal, and you don’t need a prescription to buy or use it!  CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered legal.


Gold Medal CBD products have 0% THC.  And that means there is no possibility of getting high, or of failing a drug test by using our products.

Extensive pre-clinical trials have found CBD to have the following properties:

  • anti-oxidant
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-convulsant
  • anti-depressant
  • anti-psychotic
  • anti-tumoral
  • neuroprotectant

That being said, CBD works differently with everyone, for a whole host of reasons.  So in this series of posts we will look at how CBD may be able to help you with:

  1. Anxiety/anxiety disorders
  2. Joint pain – Arthritis
  3. Inflammation/exercise induced inflammation
  4. Recovery from exercise
  5. Seizure disorders/muscle spasms
  6. Digestive issues including Chrohn’s disease, IBS and nausea
  7. Headaches/migraines
  8. Protection against Cancer
  9. PTSD
  10. Addiction

Gold Medal CBD Press Release

Gold Medal CBD Press Release

October 5, 2018

Press Release-

Nearly a year in the making… we are proud to announce the launch of our new supplement company- GOLD MEDAL CBD™!  We are “The Athlete’s Choice ~ 0% THC”.

CBD is a dietary supplement used to support and assist in alleviating many symptoms.  Pre-clinical testing shows that CBD positively supports people with anxiety disorders, panic attacks, OCD, PTSD, and social anxiety.  CBD also helps reduce inflammation, relieve arthritic pain, and supports recovery from exercise, as well as improve sleep.  All of this without the negative side effects of pain meds and/or big pharma drugs.

Many of you may have heard about CBD, or have a conception that CBD is the same as marijuana- or THC.  But in fact, Gold Medal CBD™ is derived from organically-grown industrial hemp which naturally has only 0.3% THC.  All Gold Medal CBD™ products have all the THC removed, leaving the remaining beneficial terpenes present.  Gold Medal CBD™ products are 3rd party tested for purity.  No residual solvents or heavy metals, so you can use with confidence.

Unfortunately, the CBD marketplace is full of low-grade CBD, import products, mis-labeled products, and products that simply don’t contain the amount of active ingredient (CBD) that the label states!

Gold Medal CBD™ is grown and manufactured in the USA and is sourced from organically-grown Colorado hemp.  Our products contain only 100% full spectrum CBD and are 3rd party laboratory tested for quality and purity.

We’re so confident that Gold Medal CBD is safe for use in competition that we had our co-founder, Karl Baumgart, using the product in July during the 2018 USAC Masters Track National Championships. Immediately upon winning the Men’s 45-49 Kilo he was tested for PED’s and banned substances by USADA.  Below is the test results letter from USADA, you can see the test results came back negative indicating our product truly is safe to use in competition.

For more information, or to purchase Gold Medal CBD products, please head to www.goldmedalcbd.com, or contact Bonnie Baumgart at 480-442-4213.

CBD – what it is, what it isn’t, and why you might want to try it STAT

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of over 80 different compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis is more widely recognized for another compound – THC. THC is what makes marijuana users “high”.

CBD is not THC, and it’s not marijuana! It’s not going to get you high – no – not at all.

Oh, and CBD is legal in all 50 states as long as it is produced from industrial hemp, not marijuana plants, and as long as it contains less than .3% THC. So you can buy it without a prescription and without a Medical Marijuana Card.

Industrial hemp is bred to contain less THC than other cannabis plants. To produce CBD, some companies, like Gold Medal CBD, have processes that remove all THC from the end product, while leaving the rest of the compounds, called terpenes. These additional compounds are essential in the final products so they can produce what is called the “entourage effect”. This means that full spectrum compounds are more effective than CBD as an isolate.

CBD is used for a variety of disorders and diseases. Pre-clinical testing shows that CBD positively supports people with anxiety disorders, panic attacks, OCD, PTSD, and social anxiety. CBD reduces inflammation, relieves arthritic pain and supports recovery from exercise. All of this without the negative side effects of pain meds and anti-depressants!

This supplement is absolutely worth taking.

Gold Medal CBD is designed to be “clean”. With no (0%) THC, and no residual solvents or heavy metals you may find in competitive products. If you are worried about drug testing, whether it be for athletic competition, or work; rest assured that our products are safe and effective!
