After being selected in the seventh round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Raiders, former American football wide receiver Mark Pattison competed for four years in the league. Pattison entered the NFL having first played college football at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he helped his 1984 team earn a victory in the Orange Bowl on New Year's Night. His 1984 team was eventually inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame in 2016.
After transitioning from American football, Pattison discovered a passion for mountain climbing. He seeks to become the first NFL player to successfully scale the Seven Summits, the highest peaks on each continent. With six completed and Mount Everest left to go in 2021, Pattison continually looks for ways to help him successfully take on the world's tallest mountain.
That pursuit eventually led him to Kannaway. While he concedes he initially didn’t know much about CBD hemp oil, today it’s a part of his everyday wellness routine.
“I am a mountaineer and push hard. Anything I can do to get the edge as I become the 1st NFL player to climb the Seven Summits,” he explains.
Pattison’s ingests CBD hemp oil to help him push his limits. However, his clear favorite product is Kannaway Salve, a topical CBD oil product designed to be applied right to troubled skin areas and tired muscles.
He shared with Kannaway, “One thing I’ve been very grateful for is having this Kannaway Salve product. It has saved my flipping feet. I live in Sun Valley, Idaho. My feet get super dry.” He went on to share that his “feet have 100% cleared up from all the cracking I have had … Game changer.”
Pattison relies so much on the Kannaway Salve that he intends to make room for it in his pack as he scales the 29,029 feet up Mount Everest next year.
“I plan to take this balm to Everest and use up there to make sure that my feet are going to get up and down the mountain nice and safe,” he says.
“It’s a great product. I suggest everybody check it out.”
