Let us start off by saying, CBD derived from hemp is 100% legal in the US, and you do not need a prescription to purchase CBD or to use it as often as you feel the benefits and enjoy the positive results to your physical and emotional wellbeing. For CBD to be considered legal however, all CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects).
Gold Medal CBD™ products have 0.00% 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:
The truth is, CBD works differently with everyone, for a whole host of reasons. Some of which people who have been having issues with particular conditions can experience remarkable results using CBD which is far *healthier for your body and mind than traditional OTC or pharmaceutical medications.
- Anxiety/anxiety disorders
- Joint pain – Arthritis
- Inflammation/exercise induced inflammation
- Recovery from exercise
- Seizure disorders/muscle spasms
- Digestive issues including Chrohn’s disease, IBS and nausea
- Protection against Cancer
*as with any change to your medical or health program, speak to your doctor or holistic practitioner before starting any new product when you feel you're unsure. Gold Medal CBD™ is not offering medical advice, merely sharing public knowledge data, research and our own company findings.
When you opt-in to use CBD for your fitness, workout or athletic recovery, you can get some really important benefits. CBD can improve your sleep quality and by getting better sleep at night, you can reduce your cortisol levels and produce the hormones you need for repairing muscles.
For athletes, a CBD topical like our Muscle & Joint Relief, this is a useful way to alleviate muscle soreness and pain from overexertion and overtraining. While some inflammation can stimulate training adaptions, excess inflammation can slow down your recovery. Because cannabinoids have an anti-inflammatory effect, they can help your body recover faster. In addition, our Broad-Spectrum CBD tincture can help with strains and pulled muscles.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, preliminary research suggests CBD can help with a number of sleep disorders, including insomnia, REM sleep behavior disorder, and excessive daytime sleepiness disorder. Additional preliminary research suggests CBD can also help patients improve sleep and reduce insomnia-induced anxiety. Sleep initially improved in more than 65% percent of participants.
If you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, or depression, you know that these conditions have more than just a mental and emotional impact. More often than not, mental health disorders also impact physical health, social health, and just overall well-being. CBD has been researched and proven to dramatically aid in the reduction of these conditions giving sufferers a natural, non-pharmaceutical option to treat their anxiety.
Extensive research has been conducted in relation to chronic pain and CBD; according to the Mayo Clinic,
CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on medications, such as opioids, that can be habit-forming and cause more side effects. Inflammation from overused muscles and joints and especially arthritis sufferers, greatly benefit from the healing properties of CBD as well.
Like humans, dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system that allows them to benefit from CBD oil. This system allows the active ingredients in hemp to help relieve many symptoms. CBD for dogs or in drops or soft chews can ease several conditions your pup may suffer from either occasionally or chronically, including:
• Anxiety and stress
• Moderate to severe pain
• Chronic inflammation
• Arthritis & joint pain
• Digestion problems
• Nausea & vomiting
• Some symptoms from cancer
