Best CBD For Golf

Walk past a pharmacy and it's quite possible that you’ll see a Cannabidiol (CBD) product displayed. CBD is used to treat pain, anxiety and sleep disorder, as well as a wide range of medical conditions and illnesses.

It is derived directly from the hemp plant, and whilst it’s a component of marijuana, it’s the legal part of the cannabis plant, and by itself does not cause a high. As well as occupying a prominent spot on the shelf in your local pharmacy, it's also finding its way into golf pro shops.


Well, there's growing evidence to suggest that it can help your golf game - and a number of professional golfers do use it. Of course, taking CBD is not going to stop you from missing putts, but it can improve your sleep, and the calming effect that it offers might just help your golf game.

We have been testing a range of products over the past year - so here's our guide to the best CBD for golf. If you're interested in those marginal gains, you may also want to view the 10 best supplement and sports nutrition products for golf

Is CBD good for golf?

CBD is an an acronym for cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It doesn't contain THC though, which is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the high sensation.

The product above contain this compound and are designed to increase recovery, reduce fatigue, eliminate pain and discomfort, as well as help calm your nerves in pressure filled situations. For golfers, this can result in better concentration and faster recovery from injury, among other things. From helping you to feel more relaxed on the first tee and over those nervy three-footers, to improving your overall enjoyment of the game, there are numerous benefits on offer.
