The Kannaway Sports initiative was launched in an effort to share the stories of active and retired athletes who have decided to incorporate CBD products into their daily routine. Kannaway is excited to announce the newest member of our all-star lineup – Ray Perkins.
Cancer survivor and college professor Ray Perkins is a retired American football player who kicked off his career playing for the University of Virginia, eventually making his NFL debut at age 20 after joining the Dallas Cowboys.
As an athlete in a contact sport, sustaining injuries is to be expected. But, for Ray, his discomfort manifested in the form of seven knee surgeries and a rotator cuff procedure, leaving him with persistent joint pain. He was seeking a natural alternative that would help him sleep better and improve his quality of life.
After hearing about the success another former athlete had with CBD, Patrick started using Kannaway’s Premium Humulus Oil and Salve. Since using these products, he has noticed quite a difference in his overall health, including better sleep quality and more energy.
“I used to wake up feeling groggy and disoriented. Now, I wake up refreshed. Before, I had insomnia and now, I am now sleeping roughly 6-7 hours a night. I’m 53-years-old and I am the strongest I’ve ever been,” he says.
What would you say to somebody who is not sure about whether to start taking CBD hemp oil? “There has already been so much research conducted on the benefits of CBD. Would you rather pay for prevention or would you rather try a natural approach and see actual results,” he adds.
