Former professional basketball player James Donaldson played an incredible 14 seasons in the NBA and several more seasons in leagues across Europe. The 7'2" star center was drafted into the NBA by the Seattle SuperSonics in 1979, and had his best seasons for the Dallas Mavericks, helping his team reach the Western Conference Finals and even earning a spot on the 1988 All-Star Team. James also played for the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, and Utah Jazz. He retired from the NBA in 1995 with 8,203 career points, 7492 rebounds, and 1,267 blocked shots.

Prior to his professional career, James played at Washington State, where he became the all-time leader in career blocked shots and average blocks. He was inducted into the Pac-12 Hall of Honor and Washington State University's Hall of Fame.

After retiring from basketball, James opened a physical therapy clinic in Mill Creek, Washington. He also works as a motivational speaker and is the Director of the Tacoma College Success Foundation.

James’ long basketball career caused years of wear-and-tear on his body, leaving him feeling uncomfortable and stiff. He was introduced to Kannaway CBD products from a fellow retired professional athlete.

“When I started learning about CBD products, and how they work with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), being a student of health and good nutrition, I knew it was going to be the right thing for me,” says James.

He adds: “I’ve always been a lifelong health advocate, taking care of my health as best I can. This is where Kannaway comes in handy.”

The first benefit he experienced from using Kannaway was better quality sleep at night. James has struggled with his sleep for about four years, so he tracks his sleep quality very carefully.

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.

“I take my Kannaway CBD products every day. With the oil, I take a teaspoon in the morning and a teaspoon in the evening, before going to bed,” James explains. “I know that without a doubt, the products have made a great difference for me and my overall health.”

“Thank you so much, Kannaway. You’re the best.”

"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.”
