CBD is becoming more and more popular within golf, with Major champions like Darren Clarke, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson using it to gain an advantage on the course.

But what is CBD? The product is 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 is designed to increase recovery, reduce fatigue, eliminate pain and discomfort, as well as help calm your nerves in pressure filled situations.
