Gronk has discovered a new passion, recovering with CBDMEDIC™ and helping friends, teammates and millions of people end their suffering from pain.
On Tuesday, former 3x Football World Champion, Rob Gronkowski, “Gronk” announced his partnership with CBDMEDIC at a much-anticipated press conference in New York City.
“I am here today to appeal to the sports’ governing bodies of the world to update their position on CBD— whether that’s the NBA, MLB, or NFL. It’s just time,” he said emphatically, donning the new self-appointed title, “Mr. Recovery™.”
Gronkowski hasn’t completely ruled out returning to football, however, for now he is focused on his much-needed recovery.
“I needed to recover. I was not in a good place,” he said as he choked back tears. “Football was bringing me down. And I didn’t like it. I was losing that joy in life.”
But now he is living pain-free for the first time in a decade, which he attributes to using CBDMEDIC’s products for pain management. Gronkowski explained that he suffered numerous injuries, including a quad injury during the second quarter of the championship game that left him out of commission for weeks due to internal bleeding. While everyone else was celebrating, he was miserable. Thus, after taking out a record-breaking liter of blood from his quad, “Mr. Recovery” announced his retirement at the age of 29.
Gronkowski immediately began a new chapter in his life by searching for a better, more natural way to relieve pain. His dad gave him CBDMEDIC’s Active Sport to try, who was using it to relieve his lower back pain.
Gronkowski told the audience, “I was blown away.”
He was so enthusiastic about the results that he wanted to become a partner with CBDMEDIC and an advocate for the CBD industry. Gronk is thrilled to help build a business as “Mr. Recovery” with the mission of helping millions of Americans balance their active lifestyles with healthy ways to recover.
“I believe from my personal experience that it’s the safest, alternative way that a player can deal with pain,” explained Gronkowski.
He acknowledged that professional football and many other sporting leagues currently have a prohibition on CBD, but he hopes to change this through his advocacy efforts. Since the World Anti-Doping Agency, whose mission is to protect Olympic athletes through their “clean athletes” initiative, recently lifted their ban on CBD; Gronkowski feels it is time for the other organizations to follow.
CBDMEDIC’s CEO Perry Antelman assured the audience, “You will not fail a drug test and you will not get high” with CBDMEDIC’s products, which contain THC-free CBD hemp oil derived from the legalized Cannabis sativa L. hemp plant.
The sports industry, as well as most Americans, are still learning about the 100 plus cannabinoids in the plant and how they interact with the body, following the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. This Bill legalized the planting, inter-state transportation, and sale of products with hemp-derived ingredients containing less than 0.3% THC.
With the CBD industry a bit like the wild west, CBDMEDIC stood out as a trustworthy and reliable choice for Gronk’s dad, who then passed it along to Gronk. Both of them had incredible results, prompting Gronkowksi to add CBDMEDIC to his regular recovery routine.
CBDMEDIC is no rookie to the game. The line of OTC topical pain relief and skincare products are built on the company’s 15-year foundation in natural pharmaceuticals. To ensure the quality of the products, the company:
- Formulates topical CBD products with the highest quality, naturally-derived ingredients available
- Manufactures products in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Rhode Island
- Puts all products to the test with 3rd party validation
Additionally, consumers are able to review the Certificate of Conformance (CoC) on all products in order to check levels of CBD and other cannabinoids as well as ensuring the absence of unwanted toxins. These analyses are particularly important amidst the lack of regulatory clarity in the CBD market.
The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently held a public hearing to gather facts in their attempt to catch up with the newly flooded market. For now, they have left the questions about the health benefits in limbo as they seek more studies on CBD. CBDMEDIC abides by all federal guidelines and makes no health claims associated with the CBD. In fact, the health claims for CBDMEDIC pain relief are all in agreement with the governing monograph for the authorized pharmaceutical active ingredients (menthol and camphor) present in the OTC formulations.
Gronk will not just stand on the sidelines of the CBD action, he will carry the game as “Mr. Recovery.” His new passion as a CBD advocate is bringing joy back in his life as he strives to help his friends, former teammates, and millions of people in pain.
“Now you can just call me Mr. Recovery,” Gronkowski said playfully on Tuesday. “You know you like that name. “Mr. Recovery, baby.”
