Gordon Ryan is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion specializing in submission only grappling, and one of the leading competitors of his generation. This four-time Eddie Bravo International Champion and ADCC World Champion is using CBD to enhance his natural recovery processes during training and competition.”Training 3-4 times a day, recovery is vital. I have to make sure I get at least 8 hrs of sleep every night. I take CBD 30-45 minutes before sleeping. It’s amazing.” says Ryan.

Jiu-Jitsu is a demanding sport that requires a strong, healthy body, sharp mind, and a considerable amount of strategy. The popularity of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) has steadily increased over recent years. This martial art form is based on the ability to control an opponent through techniques forcing submission, allowing a smaller person to overcome a larger opponent. Just a few of Ryan’s professional accomplishments include:

  • IBJJF Pans Black Belt No-Gi Champion (2018 weight and absolute)
  • Quintet 3 Champion (2018 Team Alpha Male)
  • ADCC Champion 88KG, Silver Medalist Absolute (2017)
  • 4x EBI Champion
  • 81% Submission Rate (2017-2018)

CBD is shown to provide numerous potential health and wellness benefits for athletes. Because of its ability to work with the body’s own network of messengers and receptors, many professional athletes, including Gordon Ryan, say CBD is an integral part of their training and post-competition recovery.

“We are always delighted to hear that our products are positively and significantly impacting the health and wellness of those who use them. Having CBDistillery represented by Gordon Ryan, an athlete whose career is dependent on physical performance, endurance, and recovery is an endorsement we are exceptionally proud of,” says Chris Van Dusen, Chief Marketing Officer at CBDistillery. “We are thrilled that Gordon Ryan has elected to join the #CBDMOVEMENT™.”

When asked why he chose to represent CBDistillery Ryan responded, “I’m glad to be partnering up with CBDistillery, a company focused on natural recovery and wellness. They’re incredibly professional and great to work with. I’m excited about the 2019 season.”


The Potential Benefits of Hemp CBD for Athletic Performance

CBD is just one of the many potentially beneficial plant-based cannabinoids found in abundance in hemp oil. The many potential benefits of hemp-derived CBD for athletes are due to the way cannabinoids mimic the messengers and influence the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system regulates nearly every vital process in the body, including the processes essential to athletic recovery. Many fitness enthusiasts and professional athletes are using CBD for it’s potential to support their performance and recovery. Some of the numerous potential benefits of CBD include:

  • Reducing inflammation and muscle stiffness
  • Enhancing the body’s ability to heal and recover
  • Improving focus and memory
  • Minimizing the impact of stress on performance
  • Reducing muscle pain that could interfere with training
  • Improving sleep and sleep cycle regulation
  • Reducing the frequency and severity of muscle spasms

Vigorous exercise can disrupt the balance of the endocannabinoid system. Hemp CBD has the potential to restore endocannabinoid system balance.
