Holiday Golf Gift Ideas / CBD and Golf
December 1, 2020
According to research by Golf Digest, there are over 20 PGA Tour players regularly using CBD products to support their golf game. Players most often sited as using CBD include Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, and Billy Horschel. Some PGA and Champions Tour players even have sponsorships from CBD companies, including Charley Hoffman, Bubba Watson, Scott McCarron and Scott Piercy.
If industry adoption is your litmus test for CBDs growing impact in the golf world, just look at this year’s PGA Merchandise Show. Last year, there were only 6 CBD companies – this year, there were upwards of 20 CBD companies showcasing their golf-centric CBD products.

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of the 104 beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant. The hemp plant, in its natural state, contains no CBD. Instead, it contains a full cannabidiol profile of CBDA, CBC, CBG, CBN, etc. CBD is essentially created by degrading these quality cannabidiols through a heat process called decarboxylation. Along with being a natural anti-inflammatory, possessing natural anti-anxiety qualities, providing natural pain relief and many more extraordinary qualities, CBD has a very similar molecular structure to that found in the human endocannabinoid system – which is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptors. These are found everywhere in the body, from the brain and other organs to glands and immune cells. In a nutshell, by helping the brain better understand issues within our bodies, we can help it do the healing for us.
CBD Does Not Get You High
While CBD and THC are both cannabidiods, CBD can’t be “felt” in the way that THC is – it won’t intoxicate you. THC is a separate compound and is not an active ingredient in pure CBD products, in fact THC levels need to be kept at a minimum level to be legal, under .03 percent. The best CBD products will leave some organic, beneficial materials in the oils that make up their products, like lipids and chlorophyll, along with this trace amount of THC.
Is it CBD Legal on the PGA Tour?
CBD was removed from the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of banned substances in 2018. This made CBD products that met the THC minimum levels, legal on Tour, as they take their guidance from the TADA as well as the United States Doping Agency. As of writing, no player on either Tour has failed a drug test because of CBD product use. Players are sometimes even given samples of CBD products at PGA Tour events. It does not appear to have a negative connotation behind the curtains of the Tour.
What Benefits Does CBD Offer Golfers?
Bubba Watson and Billy Horschel are some of the most vocal advocates of CBD for golfers. Bubba cites anti-inflammatory benefits, relief from anxiety, and improved sleep. Horschel is similar in his praise of CBDs ability to reduce swelling in his knees and ankles. Both golfers say the product keeps them pain-free.
