There are few sports that require the amount of balance and leverage that Jiu Jitsu does. Its origins stem from creating a system of manipulating the body where one could avoid relying upon strength or weapons. This requires physical and mental dexterity, and fighters are often looking for ways to sustainably nurture their bodies to enhance these traits.
Now more than ever, CBD products are taken by Jiu Jitsu athletes, notably by some of the biggest names in the sport. Recently the likes of Joey Diaz have opened up about their use of the supplement after training and fights. Their extremely positive testimonials and the growing use of CBD in general MMA has led to the increased interest among fighters to find high quality oils that will give them the benefits they are looking for.
It can be difficult in Europe to find the products taken by the likes of Diaz and Gracie. This is because they are consuming the highest quality CBD oil from the United States.
Why are European products less effective than American products?
European laws only allow for the growth and production of textile grade industrial strains of hemp; the laws governing this commodity have not changed since World War 2, and have therefore not been adapted for the consumption of CBD.
US laws on the other hand are modern and have changed recently to allow for the growth and production of any strain of hemp - most interestingly high CBD strains also contain much larger ranges of other cannabinoids. These tend to be more than 10x nutritious than the textile grade European strains. American CBD products are designed to be consumed and that is why we only stock them.
