Purity Hemp CBD Golf Starter Kit Review
Another in the health and wellness category, Purity Hemp extracts cannabidiol (CBD) from the cannabis plant to create usable products that deliver plenty of lifestyle benefits.
There are too many to list but among its uses is that it can treat pain, anxiety and improve quality of sleep. For golfers, this can result in better concentration and faster recovery from injury, among other things.
Although CBD is found in the cannabis plant, it is not psychoactive, unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the more well-known compound from the plant.
That means these products from Purity Hemp are totally legal and that’s why both the PGA’s Anti-Doping Program and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) have removed it from their prohibited lists.

What’s great about the Purity Hemp brand is that it offers CBD products in a number of forms - including a Golf Start Kit. For those who want to ingest it, there are oils of varying strengths and volumes, edible sweets in the form of gummy bears and jelly domes, as well as teas and coffees.
And for everyone else, there are handy roll-on applications and patches.
We tested the edible gummy bears and jelly domes, which were great as they covered two bases at once. Not only did they help us stay relaxed on the course, but they also ensured we were taking on board some food - we often forget or simply choose not to.

And over time, we did feel a benefit, in particular when it came to the mental side of the game. Regular intake of CBD had us more relaxed both on the course and off, which helped us enjoy playing under less self-induced pressure.
What we would say, though, is that the effect wasn't as profound as we maybe expected or hoped, but perhaps that is as much a consequence of the short testing window as anything else.
If you are more interested in the oils, they are particularly good for improving sleep – take an hour before bed and you’ll enjoy more REM and deep sleep - while the CBD roll on is excellent for targeting injury and muscle fatigue.
While more prolonged use would help us determine the long-term benefits, if you’re a golfer who struggles with anxiety or chronic injury, we think these CBD products from Purity Hemp have the potential to be a game-changer.
Fergus is a golf obsessive and 1-handicapper. Growing up in the North East of Scotland, golf runs through his veins and his passion for the sport was bolstered during his time at St Andrews university studying history. He went on to earn a post graduate diploma from the London School of Journalism. Fergus has worked for Golf Monthly since 2004 and has written two books on the game; "Great Golf Debates" together with Jezz Ellwood of Golf Monthly and "The Ultimate Golf Book" together with Neil Tappin (also of Golf Monthly)... Fergus once shanked a ball from just over Granny Clark's Wynd on the 18th of the Old Course that struck the St Andrews Golf Club and rebounded into the Valley of Sin, from where he saved par. Who says there's no golfing god?
