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 – Austin Trout, a light middleweight professional boxer fighting out of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Austin made his professional debut at the age of 19. Starting off strong, he would go on to win his first 26 professional boxing fights, often making easy work of his contenders.
In November 2009, Austin beat Taronze Washington in a unanimous decision to win the vacant WBC Contentenial Americas light middleweight title. By climbing up the ranks in a dominant fashion, he would become a mandatory challenger for the WBA light middleweight title, in which he won his first world title.
The effects of his tenure boxing professionally left him with discomfort that often kept him up at night. It was only after he was introduced to Kannaway by one of our Brand Ambassadors that he began noticing a major difference after taking Kannaway products.
Austin began incorporating Kannaway CBD products into his routine to see how it would affect him day to day. He uses multiple products, ranging from our Salve, Gold and Premium Hemp Oil Oral Applicators, and our Pure CBD Liquid.
“There was a real lack of information, and I didn’t know where to actually get it until I was introduced to Kannaway by one of your Brand ambassadors. I was already interested in cannabis, but I didn’t really know where to go to get quality CBD. I felt it could be implemented as a key point in my training. I used to take a lot of medications to get me through workouts, and I wanted something that wouldn’t take as much of a toll on my body.”
Austin noticed a major difference after taking the product expressing “My recovery has improved greatly and I use the salve on tired, overworked muscles. I feel like I recover from workouts faster now and I have less discomfort after. I think the quality of the sleep I’m getting has improved over all.”
Austin has some great advice to anybody looking to starting taking CBD hemp oil, “What are they okay with taking? If they’re okay with taking stuff as simple as over-the-counter medications then why not try CBD, which is a natural substance. Those medications can cause all kinds of damage because they’re unnatural. Your body has CBD receptors, so why would we have receptors for something that’s not supposed to be in our body?”
Kannaway is excited to welcome Austin to the Kannaway Sports team. You can find more athletes like Austin Trout on the Kannaway Sports page.
