Roald Tromp graduated at the C.I.O.S. Overveen with the specializations Tennis and Ski. After a long international sales career at various fitness manufacturers, he recently founded CBD SPORTS. He has witnessed the rapid development of CBD sports-related products in Canada and the US up close. Europe and the Netherlands in particular are still far behind this development. Roald provides an open and honest picture of what an athlete, at whatever level, can and should expect from CBD supplements and provides an insight into the development of CBD products in sports.
Since the birth of Ramses Tromp this year, I can call myself Grandpa and I wear this title with pride. Opa CBD Train Mee is a series of instructional videos about CBD in Sport. In this series I train with the members of TEAM CBDSPORTS.
In my youth I practiced a lot of sports and especially during my C.I.O.S. Overveen, the duration of training was an average of 8 hours a day of heavy physical effort. My knees suffered badly. Personally, since using CBD, I have noticed significantly less pain and a marked improvement in my body's recovery. Indeed, CBD comes from the Cannabis plant and Cannabis has a negative stigma. It is even referred to as a Class I narcotic, among other drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Not really something that fits with sports. However, cannabis contains THC and CBD. You will not get a high from CBD alone. The cannabinoid known as Cannabidiol (CBD) comes from the actual trichome (hairs) of the cannabis plant, but it does not contain the psychoactive euphoric properties that THC contains. So I am talking about CBD, not THC. You will not find that component in CBD products. Always check the lab results of the products!
As an athlete, I feel that CBD is a safer alternative than the use of painkillers, such as ibruprofen and paracetamol. You often see CBD popping up in sports now. The MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) unions have begun to investigate the use of cannabis for its fighters in conjunction with pain management and concussion protocols. The CrossFit Games and the Wodapalooza in Miami have already been sponsored by CBD manufacturers.
I regularly write and translate articles about CBD Supplements, CBD and Sports and general developments in the CBD industry.
