Former placekicker Don Silvestri played nine seasons of professional American football, including in the NFL, NFL Europe, Arena Football League, and Canadian Football League. After earning Academic All-American honors at the University of Pittsburgh, Silvestri went on to establish himself as one of football’s leading kickoff specialists. While playing in the NFL in 1995, he led the AFC and finished overall second in the league in touchbacks. In 1999, he helped the Albany Firebirds to an Arena League championship. Today he is a senior executive at and a founder of the charity organization Parkland Cares.

Don’s professional American football career started after he was signed by the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 1993. After his time with the Seahawks, he went on to be a member of the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, London Monarchs, Albany Firebirds, Florida Bobcats, and the Baltimore Stallions. He made history after kicking professional football’s first four-point field goal in 1995.

Roughly 16 months ago, Don was introduced to Kannaway hemp CBD oil by a friend and former professional football colleague. He and his family now make them a part of their everyday routine.

“Literally every day for the past year and a half, the oils have been something that’s a staple in our house,” he says.

Within Don’s daily CBD repertoire is Kannaway Pure Gold liquid, which combines broad-spectrum hemp oil with nutritious MCT oil. His favorite Kannaway product, however, is the Salve.

“The Salve is second to none. You put it on before workouts, after workouts. You want to make your wife happy and rub her feet with those. I can’t say enough about it. And it’s time to encourage others to get on board.”

Since Don's been so happy with how daily CBD hemp oil has made him feel, we asked if he's encouraged others to start a CBD routine.

He told us, "Yes and everyone who starts using CBD loves it and wishes they had started earlier because the results are so amazing!"

"From pro athletes, to the weekend warrior, to everyday people looking for a way to supplement their system and improve performance, Kannaway offers all athletes the chance to take their workout and exercise plans to the next level.”
