Kannaway Sports Monthly Recap: August 2020

Sep 3, 2020 Kannaway Sports Monthly Recap: August 2020

Our Kannaway Sports initiative allows us to see first-hand the natural benefits hemp CBD oil can offer athletes. With the goal of spreading CBD awareness to athletes and other physically-driven folks, our Kannaway Sports program involves world-class athletes sharing their personal stories and experiences with Kannaway CBD.

In August, three top athletes shared their testimonials of Kannaway’s line of hemp CBD oil products. Also this month, we continued our inspiring digital series, Kannaway Champions with Nick Lowery. This weekly series features our own Director of Kannaway Sports Nick Lowery interviewing Kannaway Sports athletes and others on encountering and overcoming adversity.

Join us as we take a look back at the three Kannaway Sports testimonials and four Kannaway Champions with Nick Lowery episodes from the past month.

Kannaway Sports Testimonials

Whether you too are a world-class athlete or simply a dedicated weekend warrior, we hope testimonials from our Kannaway Sports team members offer a little insight into how hemp and CBD can naturally enhance an athlete’s training and recovery while encouraging better general wellness.

For Kannaway Brand Ambassadors, our ongoing Kannaway Sports testimonials can also be used as a highly effective marketing tool as you spread the word of the nourishing properties of CBD.

Take a look at the three Kannaway Sports testimonials from August:

James Donaldson

Former professional basketball player James Donaldson played an impressive 14 seasons in the NBA and several more seasons in leagues across Europe. The wear and tear on his body over his long basketball career left him feeling uncomfortable and stiff. A lifelong health advocate, James was immediately open to Kannaway CBD products after being introduced by a fellow retired professional athlete.

He’s now rigorous with his hemp CBD oil routine, using the Kannaway Premium Hemp Oil, Gold Premium Hemp Oil, Pure CBD Liquid, and applying the topical Salve on his knees and other joints on a regular basis.

Mike Hartman

Mike Hartman is a former professional hockey player, playing 13 seasons in the National Hockey League after being drafted in round 7 of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. After hanging up his skates, Mike experienced the lingering aches that come with being a professional athlete, particularly in a physical sport like hockey. He had heard of CBD and even tried other company’s products but was skeptical and not impressed until he began incorporating Kannaway products into his routine.

Steve Beuerlein

Former American football quarterback now CBS sports analyst Steve Beuerlein overcame a season-ending injury shortly after being drafted into the NFL in 1987 to play professionally for 17 years. He’s undergone 21 surgeries, including having both hips replaced post-career. Steve was introduced to Kannaway and CBD by a fellow former NFLer and now tries to be consistent with his Kannaway routine.
