The Coronavirus pandemic has taken the sports world by storm, and athletes now have an unprecedented amount of time on their hands leading to an increase in the number of athletes on TikTok. Some are taking on new hobbies -see Giannis Antetokounmpo learning the guitar and Cody Zeller learning to cook and play the guitar (well, trying to). Some are doing their best to stay in shape at home- nice setup, Serge Ibaka! But most of all, athletes are more active and engaging on social media than ever before. The most interesting takeaway from this uptick in social media activity has been the increase in athletes on TikTok.
CBD has become a major buzzword across many different industries. From sports to food it seems CBD has a new use every day. I am sure you are wondering if this cannabinoid extract is really all that; can CBD really be effective in so many different ways? The answer across the board seems to be a resounding yes. In one study examining the effect of CBD on cortisol levels cannabidiol (CBD) caused a significant drop in levels of the stress hormone after administration. In another study examining the antipsychotic effects of CBD, it was discovered that cannabidiol is a well tolerated treatment for people suffering from schizophrenia as it has several antipsychotic properties. Clearly CBD is more than just a buzz word thrown around by companies trying to sell a product. So we know the stuff works, the next question is how do we market it to consumers?
