CBD oil and all things CBD are taking the nation by storm and have also found their way into pro sports including the NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL. Along with medical marijuana, a lot of athletes are advocating for more use of these products.

This is part 1 of a 3 part series where I examine the intersection of CBD and sports. In this first video we'll review the science behind CBD and whether or not it's just big money making scam.

  1. I know one thing theses know nothing do nothingers because I came into my adult life at 5'113/4" know I'm 5'9" even with bulging disc's in my lower back pain from my right hip to the tips of my toes as well as my outer shin area and was given 700 mg vicodin and it began to manifest more pain so I would use more vicodin. Quit cold Turkey got on Keaton red Bali along with a full spectrum CBD CBG CBC WITH 00.3 % THC and have never felt better back in the gym work loving my CBD my skin looks ten years younger never have to moisturize at all so take it from a working class guy whit an Associates degree in mechanics who works as a Heating and cooling technician I know nothing about how it works and I could care less it comes from god not a pharmacy.

  2. CBD is really amazing but for anxiety, energy, pain management and stress kratom is even better!
    I have tried every kind of kratom here in Indonesia and there is no question about it that the original wildly grown one is every way better than those farmed one´s and basically every kratom in the market is farmed one. Here is one local project called Borneo Energy that is sourcing only this wild grown kratom (and Tongkat Ali). It makes more work compared to harvesting it from the farms but this is more nature-friendly, because kratom farming is destroying some areas from the important rainforests. So with all reasons I recommend this one, can find it from borneo.energy

  3. A scam as far as I'm concerned, had no effect and was expensive, but might work for others, I am used to strong medication but I felt no effect from it at all, or maybe the health food one isn't strong enough, $140 waste of money but try it for yourself we're all different!

  4. I first tried it by accident.. my husband had small accident on his quad. A friend of his gave him a tiny little jar of cream similar to icy hot. I massaged him with this stuff gave him a pain reliever pill washed my hands & went about my business.. suddenly I was overly sleepy. I went to bed woke up the next morning feeling awesome the best sleep I’ve had in years. I’ve been diagnosed with depression anxiety and ptsd. I have horrible sleeping patterns mostly I just don’t sleep sometimes I sleep too much but I never feel rested and recharged when I wake up. Anyway I didn’t find out until days later what was in the icy hot cream. He tells me it has weed I look at see it’s actually something called cbd.. now I’m on a mission to find that same manufacturer because not all products that I’ve tried are the same quality

  5. CBD HAS HEALED ME. This video is long winded on talking about it. If you want to know whether it works, ask people who takes it. There is science, and it is those use it. Your video seems keep trying to devalue CBD, which is BS. you keep trying to going back to claim of companies that are crooks and is trying to push those pill pharmacies give. IT WORKS. PERIOD. we have no proper doses of how much water we should drink yet we all rush to believe we need 8 glasses of water. my health conditions:
    Cluster migranes, Anxiety,Stress triggering nail biting, Insomnia, Brain fog, Memory problems

  6. I just bought a small bottle of oil for $140 aust. can't feel anything, I think Brian is right, bit early to decide but I just thought i would try it, this one is supposed to be the strongest overcounter in Australia 375mg per millilitre, I wanted to use instead of diazapam but I'm sceptical that it will be anywhere near as effective as good old mothers little helper!

  7. CBD is unregulated, its free for all, you dont know whether you are getting a REAL CBD. I was taking CBD gummies and cream for 3 months and I had withdrawal! Not sure whether I got the synthetic CBD since it is so unregulated but I was getting a lot of bad effects WHEN I WAS taking it. I became sensitive to noise, high pitch sounds, my left ear would make a knocking sound after being exposed to loud noises. I got rashes on my LEFT hand as well and some pain developing on xiphoid process area (middle part just above your stomach). Last week, I stopped taking CBD edibles and for 3 days I got an EXTREME case of insomnia. I wasnt able to sleep for 2 days straight and on 3rd day I would sleep only for 3hrs and wont stay asleep. My brain became so noisy. I get nervous for no reason, my heart would beat so fast! A week into this — the rashes are going away, the unknown pain above my stomach is also gone, I am still sensitive to sounds and my left ears still knock once in a while, but my BRAIN still is noisy. Terrifying shit, I know I may be a RARE case as CBD seems to be the holy grail for all — but not with my experience. Won't take it again. I went to ENT and no hearing loss, nothing out of normal, not even a wax or fluid. Told me, whatever I took, to stop taking it and wait for a month.

  8. All the market claim is scam because it has no sound scientific evidence. Nothing against people who smoke weed or use CBD. I also agree with CBD helping managing the symptoms of seizures. However, all these CBD companies claim that says it improves athletic performance is pure BS

  9. 10 years down the road is extremely pessimistic. At the rate which synthetic drugs are approved by the FDA and other authorities, I think we can do better than that with a natural alternative. Let’s test it, approve it, save lives.

  10. Litteraly no evidence to show that CBD does anything. It still needs years of research to discover what it does.

    For now. It's just a scam and the people that buy it, just hear stories about it helping bone problems. Or the idiots that think it will make you high.

  11. After 30 years research on the Wagening University the average dosage is with only pure cbd 4% around 3×3 drops in Hempseed or MCT oil. Increasing the dosage will make the work stronger but do not overdose as well, no need for that For the ones who want it we have a leaflet with proper instructions. http://www.optimacbd.com

  12. My personal experience and opinion. I was a long time smoker of marijuana and grower in my college days. Ive been clean for almost 20 years. I recently tried CBD and believe its pure snake oil. My belief is this, the people taking CBD and claiming chronic pain relief are taking somewhere between 300-600mg in pill form as stated by the doctor in this video. The CBD oils you see in supermarkets across the country most commonly come in 30ml bottles and range from 800mg – 2500mg CBD. A full dropper dosage is about 1ml, so 1 dose is about 50mg CBD to 80mg CBD at the top end. No where near what is considered effective (300-600mg). So it begs the question, when we start getting into these very high volume amounts of CBD to be effective, is it even the CBD that is affecting these people or is it trace amounts of THC?

  13. My personal experience is it didn't work. A friend recommended it for my pain issues. I bought one at Vitamin Shoppe for $30. Took it as directed. While it did relax me a little bit, I saw no pain relief. Kratom on the other hand did everything promised by CBD and helped my pain. Again, this is just my experience with the stuff.

  14. Look up Richard Simpson that is the real thing he shows you how to make it. Cbd oil it really works, it is real, the one in vitamin stores and health stores are fake it don't work. Richard Simpson oil works it is trulook it up
