As a professional athlete, for me the most important thing is remaining healthy after all of the stress I put my body through on a daily basis. With that said, having something like CBD (Cannabidiol) can make all the difference in the world. In professional sports, you have to stay on top of your own recovery. To do this – you need to be prepared to work.
Having games everyday of the week while making time to go to the gym can take a toll on your body and mind. Luckily, there’s VEDA: The Leader in Endocannabinoid Nutrition. CBD is something that was completely new to me, but I was willing to venture out of my comfort zone. And I’m glad I did, because it lead me to VEDA’s amazing, life-changing products.
As Good as it Gets?
I have always done anything and everything possible to take care of my body; meeting my scheduled therapy times, going to the gym, taking ice baths, getting the proper stretching in, and regularly ingesting the oh-so-familiar anti-inflammatories. At a certain point, after you do all that you can, you think: “Okay. This is as good as it gets.”
You find out what you like and stick to it. I thought I was getting the most out of my body. However, any athlete that is serious about his art is always looking for the 1%: the one thing that gives them that much more improvement in any aspect of their game.
CBD-based products by VEDA were that (and more) for me. After I started using VEDA Sport products, I have experienced improvements unlike any before. I was able to start a game and have no soreness on the days after (which is something I can say had never happened in my 20 years of playing baseball).
I was able to cut down my recovery time after the gym, which has allowed me to feel better on game days. I’ve started sleeping better, and my overall mental clarity has improved. It wasn’t only that the anxieties of the day had been wiped clean, it was also the knowledge that I had something natural to help me, something that would benefit me before, during and after the game. Since discovering VEDA, everything has been better.
VEDA Sport Vape
The VEDA CBD Isolate Vape pen was the first product I used. It’s one of my favorites because I believe it is the most convenient. I would use it anytime throughout the day when I felt like I was in a fog, and also after the gym and before bed. I loved how I could pack my stuff, walk out of the gym, take a few puffs from the pen, and know that I was quickly giving my body something it needed.
The VEDA Vape became my protein shake sidekick. After I successfully used it for sleeping, I introduced it to a few of my friends. They love the pen because they can use it during the day and not feel tired, while also sleeping great at night.
VEDA Sport Tincture
My personal favorite is the VEDA Sport CBD Isolate Tincture. I use it once in the morning and once before bed. I feel that this has helped the most in my recovery.These days I sleep with it on my nightstand and won’t go to sleep without it. To me, it’s worth every penny.
Admittedly, I was a little hesitant of the taste at first because it was something completely new to me, however I soon grew to love it. The tincture was easy to use as well because it has measurements on the bottle (increments of 0.5 and 1mg). This makes it easy to measure your doses throughout the day. It is the main product I would buy and has a permanent spot at my bedside.
VEDA Sport Roll-on
Something I always kept in my bag was the VEDA Sport Isolate Roll-on. I would use this sparingly and only when I felt I would be pitching, or if I had just had treatment and my arm was a little sore. It rolls on and you can forget about it.
I’ve effectively used it on my groin as well as my elbow. I think this is a perfect product to carry in your gym bag or keep in your room if you have any aches that need treatment. Even my mom has used these on her neck and her pain has decreased significantly after a chiropractic appointment “gone wrong”.
VEDA Sport Spray
The VEDA Sport CBD Isolate Spray was the last product I tried which since then has also always traveled in my workout bag. I have used this spray every single time before a workout or pitching in a game. I feel it has helped me maintain a clear mind, by assuring me that I was getting a “leg-up” on recovery. It has a nice mint flavor and is also very convenient to use at a moment’s notice. When your number is called in the bullpen, take a few sprays and you’re ready to go!
The VEDA Advantage
CBD is simply the best thing I have found in the sports world. With it, I know that I am doing everything I can to get the most out of my body. Cannabidiol has given me a whole new level of confidence in my workplace.
Going out to the field and not having to worry if I am going to be able to perform at the top of my game is no longer a concern for me. Thanks to VEDA Sport, I know I am fully prepared and fully on top of my recovery every single time I step onto the field.
