The Kannaway Sports initiative was launched in an order to promote the benefits of CBD by partnering with active and retired athletes who are excited to share their experiences with you. We’re proud to announce the newest member of our all-star lineup – Neil Vincent Lomax.
Neil is a former American football quarterback who was drafted fifth by the then-St. Louis Cardinals in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft. Lomax excelled at Portland State University, going from fifth-string freshman quarterback on partial scholarship to emergency starter to NCAA legend. He was eventually inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1993 and into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
Neil’s 20-year tenure as a professional football player left him with discomfort, particularly in his joints. Looking for an alternative to prescription medications that many of his fellow athletes had been taking on a regular basis, he started looking into CBD hemp oil on a friend’s recommendation.
This led him to start taking Kannaway’s Gold Premium Oil Oral Applicator and Premium Full Spectrum Oral Applicator both in the morning and in the evening, as well as the Salve and Pure CBD Liquid as needed. He immediately noticed a difference in his sleep patterns and energy levels.
Neil explains. “The biggest and most noticeable change is that I’m able to sleep more throughout the night. I'm out for a solid 7-8 hours now. Overall, I feel more motivated to work out and take on the day. It’s also much easier to wind down and relax.”
What would you say to somebody who is not sure about whether to start taking CBD hemp oil?
“I’m old school and for me, the natural choice is usually the best choice. I would advise people to research until they feel comfortable making the switch. It was well worth it for me,” he says.
