Gronk Partners With CBDMEDIC to Promote Natural, Drug-Free Pain Management in Pro Sports
Posted by: Gronkowski
After teasing that he would unveil the next chapter of his historic career, Rob Gronkowski made his highly-anticipated reveal on Tuesday with the announcement that he has partnered with CBDMEDIC.
”These products changed my life. I wish I had been able to use CBDMEDIC while I was playing. It would have made a huge difference in my pain management during my career and I know it can help many others who are looking for safe, pill-free solutions to managing pain,” Gronk said.
In his Tuesday morning press conference in New York City, Gronk called on all professional leagues, including the NFL, to re-evaluate their policies toward CBD.
"I am here today to appeal to the sports governing bodies of the world to update their position on CBD, whether it's the NBA, MLB or NFL," he told the room full of reporters (some of whom were secretly hoping he’d say he was returning as the Patriot’s starting tight end).
Every pro athlete battles pain, chronic injury and the aftermath of surgeries, but most have to resort to strong pharmaceuticals to combat it – sometimes with devastating long-term effects.
As former Indianapolis Colts QB proved with his surprise retirement earlier this week, being a great NFL player is not just about having success on the field -- it’s about having the courage to walk away from the game when you’re still healthy enough to enjoy the rest of your life pain-free.
Now 30 and with three Super Bowl ring to his name, for the first time ever Gronk has been able to explore other legal, alternative methods of pain management.
“I’ve had nine record-breaking seasons and nine separate surgeries, but now, for the first time in more than a decade, I’m pain-free. And that’s a BIG deal!” Rob revealed.
As for his retirement last March and the inevitable question of whether we’ll ever see another Gronk Spike during an NFL game, he said: "I want to be clear to my fans, I needed to recover. I was not in a good place. Football was bringing me down and I didn't like it.”
CBD (Cannabidiol, the active ingredient in cannabis derived from the hemp plant) is revolutionizing the health care industry and opening up huge – natural – options to everyone, even pets.
CBDMEDIC products resulted from 15 years of rigorous scientific research and an extensive understanding of natural oils, analgesic ingredients, and how our bodies react to these combinations. The company then used this knowledge to develop a proprietary formulation that is safe, fast, and effective.
