Cannabiswealth.com reports from London that EthicaCBD has announced its partnership between its Sports Gel and sporting legend Sir Ian Botham OBE.
Over a 15-year test cricket career and nearly four decades of global charity walks raising over £30 million, Sir Ian has pushed his body to the limits leading to decades of treatment and intense surgeries.
Last Summer, six months prior to his recent knee surgery and at his least mobile, Sir Ian was introduced by his son Liam to a CBD sports gel that helped him return to his active lifestyle within a matter of weeks.
With plans this year to play golf tournaments and with a busy fundraising schedule that will have Sir Ian physically pushing himself, using the therapeutic gel is part of his daily routine.
Ian’s son, Liam Botham commented: “I sent the gel over to dad and three weeks later he was walking round Sunningdale.”
Ian was back on his feet walking round Sunningdale Golf Course after three weeks and after two months made a return to the Dunhill Links, playing three rounds of competitive golf despite not being able to make it round a course for at least two years prior to finding the gel.
Speaking on the Dunhill, about his experience using the therapeutic gel, Sir Ian said: “To get me through the Dunhill, I used the Gel 2-3 times per day. To be quite frank, without the gel, I wouldn’t have gotten round. This gel gives me the opportunity to get active again, quicker.”
The core ingredients of the sports gel are two cannabinoids – CBD and CBG. The most common topical application of these two legal cannabinoids (CBD and CBG) is for pain relief. The gel is made with 100% natural ingredients.
Lord Botham commented: “Sometimes you can do all the talking in the world, but when it actually comes to it, it’s gotta work, and it works.”
