In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of banned substances. As the agency is responsible for overseeing many sports such as rugby, tennis, golf and mixed martial arts, athletes are now legally turning to CBD for its recovery benefits.
fourfivecbd is a new UK CBD oil company founded by professional sportsmen – George Kruis and Dominic Day. They are just two of the many people who live an active lifestyle that have benefited from CBD oil. Their brand, fourfivecbd, is cbd oil for athletes, made by athletes.
fourfivecbd SA have a healthy variety of products which includes BSCG approved, certified drug free oils, and muscle rubs, for all those drug tested individuals looking for increased assurance on their CBD products, and their ingredients. fourfivecbd also carry non-BSCG, batch tested oils and capsules for all you looking to experience the benefits of CBD in your day to day lives.
fourfivecbd also tests for other banned substances under WADA and cross-contamination. The independent tests were performed by BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group), which means professional athletes can take fourfivecbd products without worrying about failing a drug test.
While researching fourfivecbd, we found lab reports are available on their website while browsing through the product range. In general, you should always use a CBD brand that is transparent about their independent reports.
CBD muscle rub
Our first and favourite product on the list, this CBD muscle rub includes organic ingredients like lavender, menthol, tea tree oil and vitamin E, and of course, there’s 300mg of CBD per tub.
An aching back injury proved to be a good test for the CBD muscle rub, which provided relief and a cooling sensation about 5 minutes after topical application. The smell is great too, thanks to the botanical ingredients.
If you’re someone who takes vitamins or supplements in the morning, these CBD capsules can easily be added to your daily regimen.
Made from broad-spectrum CBD, each capsule contains 5mg of CBD and inulin – a type of dietary fiber that’s great for digestion.
We personally didn’t give this a go, but it’s an easy method to consume CBD for long lasting effects over the day.
Each bottle contains 100 5mg capsules, which means this should last a while if you use it sparingly.
cbd oil spray
If you’re not a fan of swallowing pills or capsules, fourfivecbd also stocks a number of CBD oil sprays or “tinctures” that are straightforward to use.
Simply spray one or two times under your tongue, or on the wall of your cheek, and the CBD will quickly be absorbed in your body.
fourfivecbd recommends taking one or two sprays, up to three times a day.
There’s a slightly oily taste, as the CBD is mixed with an oil carrier, however its safe for vegans and vegetarians too!
fourfivecbd also offers orange flavour cbd oils sprays, if that’s more to your liking.
The CBD oil spray comes in 3 types – a 1000mg 0% THC, a 1000mg bottle and a 500mg bottle.
Each bottle has up to 240 sprays
fourfivecbd offer a fantastic range of CBD products intended for athletes or anyone who lives an active lifestyle. The muscle rub in particular might be effective for those who have aches and pains.
While we also found taking the CBD spray during the day to be beneficial, it might be different for you. Please always consult a professional if you are uncertain about taking CBD products.
As the market grows, more athletes will turn to CBD to recover from training, reduce inflammation, improve sleeping and thus, improve their overall athletic performance.
