Lloyd credits the leading CBD topicals brand as key to her recovery
BOULDER, Colo., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Today, CBDMEDIC brand, part of pioneer and CBD market leader Charlotte's Web Inc. (TSX: CWEB) (OTCQX: CWBHF), announced it has teamed up with United States women's soccer icon and leader Carli Lloyd. Lloyd partnered with CBDMEDIC after beginning to use its safe and effective topical CBD products following a knee injury and surgery last year. In doing so, Lloyd has become an advocate for the use of hemp-derived CBD to help athletes and people suffering with pain to find all-natural relief. Lloyd attributes her use of CBDMEDIC as a key factor in her recovery.
"Taking care of and listening to our bodies is extremely important, especially when it comes to pain relief," said Lloyd. "As a result of my personal experience with CBD products, I want to help other athletes and fitness enthusiasts to continue to push towards their goals, no matter their age or ability."
During her recovery, Lloyd began using CBDMEDIC topical products, including Active Sport™ Pain Relief Ointment and Active Sport Pain Relief Stick, which offer temporary relief of sore muscles. She also applies CBDMEDIC Arthritis Aches and Pain Relief Cream, which is effective in relieving joint pain and stiffness. All CBDMEDIC products are THC-free and high in CBD.
The upcoming Summer Games represents the first games since the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from the list of banned substances as more athletes are experiencing the safe and effective benefits of CBD.
"Carli Lloyd is a role model as a gold medal–winning Olympian and a dynamic leader in women's soccer who pushes her performance each year. We believe in Carli and support her advocacy efforts in raising awareness of the benefits of CBD to provide relief for those suffering from pain," said Deanie Elsner, CEO and President of Charlotte's Web Inc. "We are thrilled to see Carli thrive on and off the field and knowing that our products have helped her to continue doing what she loves."
