The Kannaway Sports initiative was launched in an effort to promote the benefits of CBD by partnering with active and retired athletes who are willing to share their stories. Kannaway is excited to announce the newest member of our all-star lineup – Vernon Earl Monroe.
During his tenure in the NBA, Vernon played for both the Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks. Due to his on-court success and flamboyant style-of-play, Vernon was anointed with the nickname "Earl the Pearl,” and was eventually inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990.
Over the course of his career, Vernon sustained a number of chronic injuries, making it difficult for him to exercise regularly without the drawbacks of muscle stiffness and soreness. He was looking for a product that would help revive his stamina when he came across CBD hemp oil.
From there, he began incorporating Kannaway products into his daily routine, taking the Gold Premium Hemp Oil in the mornings, the Premium Full Spectrum Oral Applicator in the evenings, and the Premium Hemp Oil Capsules as needed.
Vernon immediately took notice of the differences he felt after using Kannaway products. He explains, “There was one point where I would wake up and not want to do anything. And after taking CBD hemp oil, it has become a lot easier for me to move around and perform my daily chores. I also have a brighter outlook on my days.”
What would you say to somebody who is not sure about whether to start taking CBD hemp oil?
“I would say that if you’re hurting and nothing else is working, CBD is the best option. Once you start noticing the benefits, you’ll wonder why you didn’t try it sooner,” he adds.
