Phuket High and OG Fightwear: Delivering CBD for Sports Therapy

Hey there MMA fighters and fans! Are you sick of body aches, long recovery times and not being able to train at your full potential? Well, it’s time to ditch the traditional ice baths and heat rubs and say “sawatdee” to CBD at Phuket High!

What is CBD?

Spoiler Alert: Although a psychoactive substance contained in cannabis, the chemical Cannabidiol (CBD) will not get you high. Bummer, right? CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that’s proven to help reduce inflammation, pain, and improve sleep. CBDs affect us due to their similarity with other neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids which are naturally produced in our bodies.

Think of CBD as your personal cornerman, always there to help rejuvenate and get you back in the fighting spirit. But, unlike a real cornerman, CBD won’t be yelling at you to “keep your hands up” or “work the body”. Big Jim, Owner and CEO of OG Fightwear and Partner at Temple Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Phuket, Thailand currently sponsors 15 fighters and incorporates Phuket High CBD products in their training recovery program. He said even fighters who don’t otherwise embrace cannabis are receptive to CBD for its physical and emotional benefits.

How is CBD Used?

Want to know the best part? CBD can be used in a variety of forms, from smokable flowers, to creams, oils and edibles. So, whether you’re a “rub-it-in” type of fighter or a “tasty-treat” kind of fighter, Phuket High delivers all the most effective CBD options for you. *As with any new dietary supplement, please chat with your healthcare provider before using CBD. 

Use of CBD Amongst Athletes

According to a study published by the National Library of Medicine in 2021, “especially in contact sports like rugby, the use of CBD is 28%, increasing with age, and reporting pain relief and sleep quality improvements as perceived benefits.” 

Fighters who use CBD

UFC fighter Nate Diaz made headlines in 2017 after hitting a CBD vape pen at a post-fight press conference, saying at the time “ it (CBD) helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that. So you want to get these for before or after the fights, training. It’ll make your life a better place.” Other current and former fighters who endorse CBD include Jon Jones, Ronda Rousey and Bas Ruten. 

So, if you’re looking for faster recovery after an MMA training session, give CBD a try. It’s the perfect way to elevate your recovery game and let your muscles feel like they’re relaxing on Nai Harn beach. 

Whether you’re a white belt, black belt, or somewhere in between, Phuket High Rawai delivers a premium selection of CBD products to help you recover like a champion. End your painful recovery today!
