Pro boxers increasingly using medicinal cannabis to boost recovery
Releaf is the all-in-one medical cannabis package
Medicinal cannabis is a legitimate supplement that is increasingly being used in professional sports, particularly in boxing, where athletes are required to recover in quick fashion with training camps more intense and brutal than ever.
Strength and conditioning wasn’t used a great deal in professional boxing many years ago, but now it’s crucial part of any camp, with boxers not only working with their main trainer, but also recruiting an S&C coach for a couple or more sessions each week.
It’s because of this extra toll on the body that more pro boxers are turning to Boxing and Medicinal Cannabis to help recovery times, enhance performances, and reduce injuries.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is an all-natural substance created by the cannabis plant. It’s not psychoactive, so it can’t get you high.
It can also be found in CBD protein form. It’s completely legal in the UK as a food and drink supplement. In fact, it’s a rapidly growing business which is set to really explode in the coming years.
Who uses it?
Anthony Fowler, who recently hung up his gloves, is a well-known user and advocate for CBD oil, running his own business on such a scale that he is able to offer his products at lower prices than anyone else. The Scouse boxer often runs giveaways and flash sales.
In the U.S., veteran heavyweight Shannon Briggs, famed for his “Let’s go champ” chant, has been an ambassador for many years already.
Another ambassador is boxing’s most talked about star right now, after his scintillating win over Josh Taylor in New York last weekend, and that’s “the Takeover” Teofimo Lopez.
The Honduran-American two-weight world champion not only uses medicinal cannabis, he is also sponsored by one of the biggest names in the industry.
The Brooklynite added former undisputed super-lightweight champion Josh Taylor to his scalps on June 10 at Madison Square Garden. That’s two boxing superstars he has toppled, the first being triple champion Vasiliy Lomachenko in 2020.
Lopez uses medicinal cannabis for pain relief, to soothe his tired muscles, and for holistic relief too. He is adamant the product helps to shorten his recovery times and clears the mind.
It’s safe to say that if Teofimo Lopez is using this growing product and winning world titles with it, then it’s the perfect advert for the product, which clearly works wonders and helps world champion boxers to “Takeover” the world.
