Fox has spoken publicly about his mental health issues.

The SAS: Who Dares Wins star and former UK Special Forces soldier, Jason Fox, has spoken out about how CBD has helped him.

Fox was first introduced to CBD by Fourfive co-founder and ex-professional England rugby player, George Kruis, while experiencing disrupted sleep following an expedition in which he and a friend canoed the length of the Yukon river.

Three years later, Fox has teamed up with the brand to share his experience and raise awareness of the benefits.

Fox is best known for his long stint on Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins and as the presenter of investigative documentary series Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos.

Before his time on Britain’s televisions, he joined the Royal Marines Commandos before moving to the Special Boat Service, where he reached the rank of Sergeant. He was medically discharged in 2012 after being diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Since his discharge, Fox has made several public appearances in which he spoke about his mental health, the years following his discharge and the loneliness of battling his mental health issues.

Since he first tried CBD, Fox, often referred to as “Foxy”, has included CBD spray oil and muscle rub in his daily routine to improve his sleep and ease body pains.

Fox commented: “I was very sceptical. George sent some CBD to me within a few days of getting back from the trip.

“At the time, my sleep pattern was screwed and I never slept very well before that anyway.

“I thought I’d be in a state for a while with the time difference, the routine that I had out there, not being in darkness and I was all over the place.

“I got the spray CBD oil and started using it and within days my sleep pattern was back.”

He added: “Not only that, my Mrs said I were much more chilled out, my fuse is longer and I was a nicer person to be around. I’m actually a better person from it and now I have it with me all the time.”

Fourfive was founded by professional rugby players George Kruis and Dom Day in 2018. After suffering from a string of injuries, Kruis and Day discovered how CBD could be useful in their recovery, leading them to explore effective and natural remedies for the pain and loss of sleep associated with sporting injuries.

Ex-professional Welsh rugby union player, Day commented: “I am personally a big fan of what Foxy has achieved in the forces, during his appearances on SAS: Who Dares Wins, but most importantly in the work he does to support people with PTSD and with mental health problems.

“With his genuine positive experiences of using CBD products and also his past support of Fourfive, we are really delighted to have him as part of the team.”

Kruis added: “Working with people that you like is always a bonus but to bring on board someone like Foxy who I have the utmost respect for, both personally and professionally, is a great step for Fourfive.

“We’re delighted to support his ongoing journey with mental health and PTSD and to help raise awareness in these areas. Of course, we’re also looking forward to putting him through his paces!”
