  1. I wonder why this oil is not among the top products for pain relief. Considering that it gives much relief to football players, some more research could go into it. This seems to be a safe alternative to other products. I hope your articles will help to spread awareness about the positive effects of this oil.

    • Hi Carol,
      As the opioid crisis intensifies, there is beginning to be a recognition that CBD can help reduce the opioid epidemic. In fact, Nevada recently considered a bill that would allow a person addicted to opioids to qualify for Medical Marijuana. Things are starting to move, but CBD has a lot of opposition from Big pharmaceutical companies that stand to lose a lot of business if CBD replaces most of the pain medications.

  2. Thank you for a thoughtful article. I am no athlete. But when younger I injured my right shoulder. Now, in my later years, the injury has come back to haunt me as chronic pain and stiffness. This was worsened because I am a lecturer and use to overstretch my right arm and shoulder when writing on a whiteboard.

    I had heard about CBD oil and how it can ease the pain. In your article, I can see how it helped many professional athletes. And I believe it can help me too. The pain is especially bad during the nights when I would wake up in the middle of the night many times to feel the throbbing pain in my shoulder. I truly hope Singapore will make CBD oil legal soon, and allow it so that I can have better sleep.

    • Hello Tim,
      Singapore as you most likely know is one of the countries with the world’s harshest drug laws. However, recent report is that Singapore is planning to invest in medicinal pot. It’s doing so as a reaction to all the scientific studies that have shown the benefits of medical marijuana. The hope that once the government is satisfied that Medical marijuana is a true alternative to pain pills, it will open the door to the use of CBD oil. Perhaps the government of Singapore is listening to voices like yours and preparing the way for CBD oil to be legal.

  3. Many football players do become addicted to pain drugs through their football careers, you wonder if being a big football star millionaire really is worth it in the end. You can only abuse your bodies to a certain point before it catches up with you, this is a much safer and healthier way for football players to cope with their pain.

    • Hello Jeff,
      I actually think the issue of drug addiction among football players is becoming a bigger issue nation wide as the popularity of CBD oil increases. I think in time it will replace the opioids that some football players are still taking. More players are agreeing with you that there are safer and healthier ways to cope with their pain.

  4. I am not into sports, but I can understand why athletes in football would definitely be left with lingering pain even after the career is over. I feel it is important to have alternatives to opioids as pain relief , and CBD is opening up more alternatives for people trying to live more natural and healthier lifestyles.

    • I was really surprised as I was doing the research at the extant that former athletes still have to deal with debilitating pain from the playing days. I agree with you it’s a good thing that CBD is opening up more alternatives for people trying to live more natural and healthier lifestyles.
