Feel better, play better, and have more fun while golfing with cannabis products.
It’s well known that golfers love CBD products. A 2019 survey estimated that 29% of the top 125 golfers use CBD during and after playing golf. However, CBD isn’t the only cannabinoid that golfers regularly use.
Although the Professional Golf Association lists THC as a banned substance, the same survey confirmed that 20% of the top golfers had used THC products in 2019. While CBD can improve your golf game, THC helps you have more fun while golfing.
Professional Golf and Cannabis
In 2019, Matt Every tested positive for cannabis in a PGA drug test and was suspended for 12 weeks. “It doesn’t do anybody any favors that it’s even on the list for a prohibited substance,” Every commented. “You could fail for heroin and marijuana and the penalty is the same. If anyone wants to make the argument that that is performance-enhancing, they have never done it before. I promise it’s not.”
In contrast, CBD products, which are even more popular among golfers, are not banned by the PGA. In fact, golfers like Bubba Watson and Scott McCarron openly use and promote CBD.
How CBD Benefits Your Golf Game
Stress can hurt your golf game. It makes golfing less enjoyable and it hampers performance by reducing your energy, power, and rhythm. Players use CBD oil to maintain an elevated, relaxed mindset while playing.
Stress can also impact your sleep, which can make you play worse. One study found that better sleep quality is correlated with lower golf scores, an association largely attributable to the impact of sleep on memory, energy level, and stress.
CBD Sleep Gummies are a popular sleep solution for golfers. CBD helps you to fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly so that you are ready for those early-morning matches.
How THC Affects Your Golf Game
In an entertaining study, Golf Digest followed three different golfers, at three different skill levels, as they gradually consumed more THC while playing golf.
The study found that using up to 18 mg of THC can improve a golfer’s game by reducing stress, relaxing muscles, and calming nerves. The author noted, “Consume in excess of that, however, and focus, energy, hand-eye coordination, and munchies become major impediments.”
If you’re looking to improve your game, consuming THC in small doses may actually help you play better. However, the reason many golfers use THC has nothing to do with lowering their scores and everything to do with increasing their enjoyment.
Golf is a social sport. Many people play with the sole goal of having fun. THC edibles enhance that fun. Delta-8 Gummies and Delta-9 Gummies elevate your mood while having calming effects, making them perfect for outdoor, social situations like golf.
