My friends, I’m going to introduce to you an extreme athlete who faced big-time extreme challenges-multiple surgeries, chronic pain, and the big evil of dependence on prescription medications. However, this athlete was fortunate to be open-minded enough to adopt cannabidiol (CBD OIL) into her health-and-training regimens. And today she claims it’s giving her a competitive edge.

“In all of my 15 years of managing athletes, I have not seen a category like CBD oil ever”, says Frank Vatterott, the founder of the Human Interest Group, a sports marketing and business development firm located in Boulder, Colorado.

“It’s exploding.” However, athletes are very hesitant about admitting that they are using it. In fact, this is the first time any of these athletes have spoken to the public about their CBD oil use. Although it is no longer a substance that is banned, there’s still a lot of controversy and stigma that is surrounding it.

Let us keep in mind, that our featured athlete is sponsored by iKOR Labs, which manufactures and sells CBD oil and it’s offsprings, and she heads a research and a consulting firm that advises on the use. So she is not just using CBD oil, she is working for it as well. An endorsement deal with Advil would with-out-a -doubt pay much better, but she made her green choice.

When you are at the elite level of sport, your patience with placebo, and especially anything at all with negative effects, is short. Also, important to note is that, among the athletes who are still competing, it is not THC that they’re using, it’s CBD oil. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that causes people to get high. While there is evidence that THC and CBD work best together, especially for any pain relief, THC is still banned by the WADA and is therefore not an option for her. And finally, although the science concerning CBD and athletic performance is somewhat limited and the effects that you’re about to hear are purely anecdotal. After reading about her experiences and hearing some of her advice, just maybe you’ll decide to experiment.


She was extremely disappointed by her performance in the 2012 Olympic marathon trials. However, rather than just giving up, Thorvilson, doubled down, finishing eight marathons and a 50-mile ultra, all within four months. But the stress led her to a hamstring tear, some knee damage, and four surgeries over a four years span. “I ended up with cadaver bone in my femur all because it was so eroded,” says Leah Thorvilson, the Little Rock, Arkansas, resident. “It led to a complete meltdown moment for me because who am I, if not a runner?”

On top of all the physical challenges, there were also emotional ones: A training partner died in an ATV accident, on top of that, her very best friend’s mother was kidnapped and then murdered. If that was not enough- the wife of a track coach at the college where Thorvilson worked, committed suicide, and a prominent local runner died during a marathon of a heart attack. “All of this sadness happened in three to four months of 2014,” she recalls, “It was just way too much.”

She then began taking an anti-anxiety medication in addition to the Ambien that she had been popping every night since 2012 in her effort to deal with insomnia. After her final surgery in 2015, under doctor’s orders to avoid any high-impact activity for a whole year, Thorvilson realized that she had to do something or risk losing her mind. However, relief came from two unexpected sources: CBD oil and cycling. A close friend recommended a virtual riding platform called Zwift, which simulates outdoor cycling and racing on a stationary trainer. She got hooked and entered a Zwift competition which awarded a pro contract to the winner.

“Never in a million years did I really think that it would be me”, Thorvilson says. “I’d only owned a bike for three months.” However, she beat all the competition and joined the Canyon/SRAM pro team in Europe for the 2017 racing season. As this new career accelerated, Thorvilson reconnected with a friend that was developing CBD products for athletes. Because CBD oil is reputed to help with recovery and anxiety (and it was no longer banned), she tried it.

Thorvilson began with five squirts of the hemp extract iKOR under her tongue Daily, morning and evening (50 mg CBD). After experiencing absolutely no negative effects, she then upped that dose to eights squirts twice daily (80mg CBD) with an occasional extra squirt (5mg) after hard training sessions, race, or when fighting a cold. She will rub iKor’s Warming Relief, a topical hemp extract (125mg CBD) after the races to help reduce all inflammation. “Do I receive any sleep benefits from CBD? Well not really, Ambien is very strong,” Thorvilson explains. “But I was worried about Ambien’s long-term effects, and CBD helps me sleep most nights. Same with anxiety: it’s not like ‘Wow, this stuff is really amazing!’ It’s more like, maybe this is helping, it’s certainly not hurting, so I do continue.”

Thorvilson says that she’s seen the best effects with muscle recovery. For some of the elite athletes, that may just be the effect they value most, because it will allow them to hit the road again when their competitors might be hanging it all up for the day. “I’ve made absolutely no other changes to my training that would help me to recover faster,” Thorvilson says, who is now riding for Eastern Overland and is sponsored by iKOR, “and being 40 years old I naturally recover much slower.”

“Overall, I just don’t see any reason at all to be afraid of CBD oil”, she adds. “My very best results have been very good, and my worst results have been neutral, so to me it seems harmless.” However, she cautions, “Just because I was able to get off my own medication doesn’t mean that you should replace yours with it. CBD oil is just another solution to explore with your personal doctor.”

My friends, as you can see, CBD oil is doing some amazing things throughout our planet- touching all walks of life.

  2. The cannabidiol oil a.k.a CBD oil is strongly believe to have a lot of positive influence on people who indulge themselves with the use of this amazing product, especially the athletes in terms of pain relieving, and so much more works that are believe to be controls by this drugs

    my question is this, can CBD oil treat glaucoma or any form of blindness either partial or otherwise.

    1. Good evening sparkling,  it’s very nice to see you again,  and yes CBD oil is changing lives throughout our world in the most positive way,  and the things that CBD oil is doing for the athletes it’s just nothing short of incredible. As far as blindness is concerned,  I have not heard of any evidence that will support CBD oil helping with glaucoma or any form of blindness.  However,  I will have my team research this more.

  3. Hello Paul, there is this joy in you when you are healthy enough to carry out the activities you want to and come out victorious in it. Healthy and mind issues can be really distracting and anxiety and stress isn’t something anyone would want to experience during their work time especially for athletes. CBD products are remarkable with the very pleasant essential oil coming up in recent times.

    1. Good evening Benson,  it’s so nice to see so many of you visiting me once again,  I just love this and yes my friend it is a most wonderful thing what CBD oil is doing for people in our world at this moment and the future. It is a miracle,  and I am so very happy to know about this miracle and been able to experience this miracle in my own body. And one of the great things about it unlike the prescription drugs that the doctors crammed down our throat,  CBD oil is not addicting,  Hallelujah on that. Thank you for visiting us once again,  and you know as always if it’s anything that I or my team can do for you just reach out to us. May you be always in good health,  humbly yours Paul Earl.

  4. This is a very good explanation of how and why CBD oil is so much better than prescription drugs. I especially liked her explanation that the CBD oil was not as strong as the Ambien or the anti-anxiety medication, but when compared with the side effects of the other drugs CBD oil is obviously the better choice. My question is though, even though this is a better choice for anyone, especially athletes, is this not illegal for most professional athletes? For example if they are given a drug test, will they not fail it if they are taking CBD oil? I appreciate the help, thank you for sharing this, it is a great article!

    1. Good evening Travis,  yes I love the story of all she had went through and then the CBD oil put everything back in order for her. As far as your question goals,  it is not legal yet with the football players basketball players or baseball players or hockey players,  however,  it will be,  as you know it takes time to change things especially things that are good for us,  unfortunately. Once again thank you for visiting us and if it’s anything that I can do for you,  please reach out to me or my team. May you be always in good health, humbly yours,  Paul Earl. 

  5. Thanks for the post Paul. I just started using CBD oil and I was wondering if one can build a tolerance to it ? I’m a disabled vet, broken my back more once, and I have all kinds of pain from several car wrecks I’ve been in. Right now the oil gives me this tremendous relief, but will that continue indefinitely, or will the relief diminish like all the other meds I’ve been prescribed?

    1. Good evening Jordan Smith,  well I use it,  it got rid of my arthritis and I haven’t built a tolerance to it. I am also a vet my brother,  my brother it brings a tear from my heart to know that you have gone through this sort of pain. From my experience with myself and others that I know who has also use CBD oil for their medical conditions,  it has not diminish at all,  the relief is still the same.  No my brother CBD oil cannot be compared to all of those poison prescription drugs that we have been given in the past. This is one of the reasons the pill companies were fighting against CBD oil,  because they knew that it was so much better,  my brother I’m writing an article right now about it,  the American government knew for 50 years what CBD oil was capable of doing,  including helping cure cancer. The prescription drug companies and the alcohol companies,  and those others that are in great power, and our American government should be ashamed of theirselves to put money before the good health of American citizens. We thank you for visiting weightlifting for a beautiful world,  and if it’s anything,  anything that all that we can do for you please reach out to us. May you be always in good health,  humbly yours,  Paul Earl.

  6. Those are amazing results and I’m happy that she was able to find something (in this case, CBD oil), that has worked for her.  It truly is amazing.

    I have been reading a lot about the benefits of CBD oil lately.  It seems a day hardly goes by that there isn’t some new and exciting information coming forth in the media.

    I haven’t tried it, myself… yet… but with each new bit of info, I am getting closer to seeing what it might be able to do for me.

    I’ll have to do some investigating and see If I can get it here.


    1. Good evening Wayne,  yes indeed my friend CBD oil is doing amazing things throughout our planet for all walks of life. There is scientific and medical evidence backing every beautiful move that CBD oil is doing,  however, for over 50 years our American Governor knew exactly the potential of CBD oil,  and that brings a tear from my heart, to find out that it was money that stopped CBD oil for being a part of the medical markert. Make sure my friend,  that you investigate the company’s before you start using CBD oil because CBD oil is not created equal. I went through a half a dozen companies before my team and I found my daily choice,  the other CBD oils that we had tested and tried was not the right ones, however, after the tests came back from the local universities concerning CBD oil from my daily Choice we then began to use it and by God it work better than we could ever imagine. Also do not forget that CBD oil is good for your overall condition and there is some evidence that supports it slows aging of the human body,  it also is some evidence that supports CBD oil helps us men with our manhood. I think you for visiting weightlifting for beautiful world,  if it’s anything that we can do for you please reach out to us. May you be always in good health,  humbly yours Paul Earl.

  7. Great story about Leah Thorvilson and how she found both cycling and using CBD oil helped with her problems that standard medication couldn’t provide. These results do not surprise me because of my own personal experience with using CBD oil. I started using CBD hemp oil in 2014 made by one of the first companies in the U.S. market.

    CBD, or Cannabidiol is one of the two major cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, the other is THC. The reason why many athletes are still shy about admitting that they use CBD is because of this relation to THC which is still illegal in most areas whereas CBD is not illegal. When people smoke marijuana, it is the THC that gets them high, not the CBD.

    In fact CBD works totally opposite of THC, in that it doesn’t get you high but actually calms you down. CBD promotes homeostasis in the body. I often tell people that the relationship between marijuana and hemp is the same as an orange and lemon. Both come from the same plant species but both are vastly different.

    CBD hemp oil has many health benefits and THC from marijuana has only a few. CBD is VERY good at dealing with most kinds of acute and chronic pain as well as many brain and neurological disorders like anxiety, depression, epilepsy, essential tremors (which is what I have), and even Parkinson’s and cancer.

    Even though I do not use Hempworx CBD oil I can say that I have looked into it, just as a comparison to the brand I use. I can see that their quality is just as good, using the same “Gold Standard” in extracting/processing techniques, which is vital in producing an effective CBD hemp oil. I recommend that anyone reading this should try this CBD oil.

    1. Good evening my dear friend Robert,  yes indeed my friend you have done your homework which I always recommend to anyone that’s getting into the use of CBD oil. I too have that personal experience,  I took medication from my private doctor for years because of the  arthritis in my left hand,  none of it got rid of the pain that I was experiencing. I would wake up with tears in my eyes because I had to bend up my fingers every morning and throughout the day,  when I began taking CBD oil the arthritis no longer affect me within that first week. So yes indeed,  I see CBD oil as being a gift from Heaven as I sure you do, yes my daily choice is definitely one of the top contenders when it becomes to the Purity and grade a CBD oil. However,  they are not the only ones but they’re are in that top three companies,  as your brand is,  yes I know about your brand and it is indeed a great brand,  I take off my hat to them. The whole Secret my team and I have discovered is the CO2 extract procedure which is very important throughout the process. As always I think you for visiting us here at weightlifting for a beautiful world,  and also as always if it’s anything that my team or myself can do for you please please reach out to us. May you be always in good health,  humbly yours Paul Earl.

  8. This is a very good post that I find very informative for everyone who does not know about the product. I have heard of many big-name people who make use of. Like Leah here, many people have had issues. Leah’s testimony is a very good one though and I am very happy that more people are getting to know about CBD. One thing I do nt know is which type of CBD is the best right now because I have heard that there is a range of types.

    1. Good evening John,  it’s not really what type John,  I mean you have CBD oil that’s combined with THC you have CBD oil in different flavors like cinnamon and peppermint,  you have 500 mg you have 750 mg,  it all depends on your personal needs. However,  you have to do your homework on the company’s before you purchase,  because you got some real snakes out there that selling garbage which is usually in the grocery stores party stores and gas stations,  and also throughout the internet. As you know,  I recommend my daily choice,  because my team and I had the company investigated and their products test at the local universities to make sure that it was what it was supposed to be. And then my team and I begin using it and a few friends,  and let me tell you it definitely was a World Cup winner. I thank you John for visiting us once again and as always if it’s anything at all we can do for you,  please contact us. May you be always in good health,  humbly yours Paul Earl.
