The Kannaway Sports initiative was created to promote the benefits of CBD products from Kannaway by partnering with active and retired athletes to give testimonials about their experience with CBD. Kannaway is excited to announce the newest member of the Kannaway Sports team – Bruce Bannon.
A former linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, Bannon rose to notoriety during his college years spent playing for Penn State. In 1972, Bannon was a First-team All-American and the Defensive MVP of the Cotton Bowl Classic. He was drafted in 1973 by the New York Jets before playing two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, during some of the team’s most successful years.
“After playing football all your life, no matter who you are, you get beat up and you have injuries. I’ve never had a serious injury in football or really at all in my life, but over time being hit all the time, it can take a toll on you as you get older,” Bannon said.
Bannon, like many of Kannaway Sports partners, was uncertain about trying CBD products at first due to their relationship to marijuana, hemp’s illicit cousin, and the negative stigma that follows it.
“I was introduced to the product at an event and was nervous because I don’t really take drugs,” he said. “I try to avoid taking anything if I can. After doing some research and learning that there was no high, or side effects, and that it was an all-natural substance, I decided to try it.”
Bannon now takes full advantage of the hemp plant by using Kannaway’s Premium Hemp Oil and Gold Premium Hemp Oil to his daily routine each morning. These undiluted hemp oil products allow him to maximize his CBD intake each day.
“In a matter of days, I was feeling better. I was worried it was just psychological, but after two weeks, I really was feeling a lot better. I’m back to where I’ve been. I’m hiking and working out regularly again. I’m looking forward to continuing to take these products. I can really see a difference,” Bannon told Kannaway.
After seeing the change CBD made in his own quality of life and knowing more about the hemp plant and CBD, Bannon feels comfortable recommending these products.
“You’re not getting a high, it’s not addictive. I’ve taken it for a month now and there’s no negative about it at all,” Bannon told Kannaway. “It’s a natural substance. It doesn’t have any of the chemicals in it that make you high. I’m really comfortable with it. I think it’s great; I really do.”
