Hempoid: A selection of CBD products from Hempoid

Hempoid explains why CBD is becoming so prominent in the fitness industry and the wide range of benefits it can offer athletes.

At Hempoid, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality CBD products that are affordable and accessible.

Understanding the struggles that people face every day has allowed us to create products that target those areas. Our own personal battles are what led us towards natural remedies and we are committed to helping improve our customers’ physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Hempoid was the Winner of the GHP’s Fitness and Nutrition award for 2021.

Hempoid CBD

Aches, pains and discomfort are challenges that we all face every day and in the sporting world. Our hectic lifestyles make sustainable recovery as important as ever. Research suggests that CBD shows promise in helping to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

At Hempoid we’ve formulated a high strength, high-quality muscle balm to target those areas that require relief whilst providing instant, long-lasting softness.

Those of us with long commutes or desk-bound days often experience muscle pain. A recent study showed over 25 per cent of office workers suffer from lower back pain from working at their desks all day.

Additionally, muscle recovery can be a challenge for athletes and regular gym goers – we know performance can be affected if recovery isn’t spot on.

It’s why CBD is becoming so prominent in the fitness industry, given its wide range of benefits as demonstrated by high-profile athletes like Megan Rapinoe, Tomas Wolfe and Nate Diaz who use CBD as part of their recovery and training schedule. 

Our muscle balm contains fast-absorbing ingredients to tackle muscle pain quickly and effectively. We’ve also selected a range of essential oils and natural ingredients to support the CBD components in providing muscle relief. These include shea butter, wild mint oil and grape seed oil. Apply the balm anywhere from the neck down, as much as is necessary throughout the day, and enjoy the relief it provides to your achy and tired muscles.

Our CBD muscle balm is produced in the UK, using Full Spectrum CBD, derived from organically grown hemp. That means that alongside CBD you’re also getting a whole host of naturally supportive compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, all with 0% THC.

For all our athletes, we also offer CBD oil with 0 per cent THC, available in both lemon and mint flavours – perfect to compliment a protein shake, green tea or a healthy smoothie.

Our most popular Full Spectrum range is also available, which our customers have found effective in many different ways. All our oils are vegan, blended with organic coconut oil and are GMP-certified.

Perfect for use at any time of the day, they also double up as the perfect gift this winter.

This will mark the first exception for medical cannabis in professional sport in the US. It is also the first-ever American bout to have an in-competition Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for medical cannabis.

The exemption allows the use of cannabis as medicine during training and in preparation for competitions without the risk of being penalised or barred.

The fight will take place on December 18 2021 after Theodorou was granted the TUE earlier this year. It takes place in Colorado which is a legal cannabis state. which happens to be the home of the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Cannabis in Colorado has been legal for medical use since 2000.

His first attempts at having his medical cannabis recognised by the USADA failed.

MMA and Medical cannabis

In a statement, cannabis advocate, Elias said:

“Validating my US Colorado TUE for cannabis with a fight and finish will officially stamp my place in American sporting history as the first sanctioned cannabis athlete. This is a precedent not only for myself but for other athletes in Colorado and other states, which in turn can create a wave of opportunities for other athletes to apply for the same right to medicate with cannabis in competition.”

He added: “I will commemorate my next fight with an NFT that represents the ‘knockout punch’ to the prohibition in athletics, validating my therapeutic use exemption means.”

Theodorou started using cannabis to treat pain associated with bilateral neuropathy. It followed an accident that left his hand broken in two places and fractured in a further four. He also suffers from nerve damage in his upper body. He started on prescribed painkillers such as opioids before realising they were detrimental to his MMA training.
