Beginning a blog article with a picture of Bruce Lee, the modern grandfather of Mixed Martial Arts is a  moment of pride to the MMA fraternity.

What really inspired me to write about MMA stars was to understand how MMA stars manage their pain, recover from serious injuries, handle the trauma of failure, most of all, the physical and psychological toll that the sport puts on them.

If you are an empathetic spectator of MMA like me, you would be distressed. But some of the torch bearers of this Industry have been able to overcome extreme physical and mental situations with the help of CBD.

I wish to share with you how some eminent stars of MMA  have embraced CBD and CBD based products have transformed their lives.

Prestigious titles and gains like “The Ultimate Fighter” does come with pain. Broken jaws, several knee injuries, and ligament tears. Camozzi specifies the use of CBD oil and how it helped his speedy recovery as well as helped him to continue to train and compete.

He also shares openly to people to understand that he passes all drug tests (USADA) and he was not tested positive, the main reason being, CBD is not psychoactive like THC, and that the CBD oil is hemp-derived and is 0% THC.

Diaz just chilled out! He pulled out a vape pen and started inhaling CBD post his fight amidst the press. Though some jaws dropped, he was ‘the game-changer’.

UFC and the World Anti-Doping Agency ( WADA) changed regulations and removed CBD from the list of banned substances.
