We’re thrilled to announce our newest product: Charlotte’s Web SPORT Daily Edge. This high-quality CBD tincture is the first product in our new SPORT line, which is designed specifically for athletes. SPORT Daily Edge is a high-quality formula created to help athletes to adapt and recover from the unique physical demands they place on their body.
And because our SPORT line is NSF Certified for Sport®, you can rest assured that this product is safe and clean for use by athletes in any sports league—whether you’re a weekend warrior or an elite athlete. NSF certification is a big deal, so let’s talk a little more about what that means.
What “Certified for Sport®” Means, And Why It’s Important
“Certified for Sport®” is the gold standard certification granted by the NSF—a 75-year-old independent global organization that exists to protect public human health and safety. They perform tests and develop standards to help educate consumers on which health-related products are safe for consumption. When you choose a product that’s certified by the NSF, you can rest assured that the company producing that product is complying with the NSF’s strict guidelines on safety, quality and purity.
Why did we seek out the “Certified for Sport®” certification for SPORT Daily Edge?
For starters, we wanted to reassure athletes, teams, and sports leagues that this product is safe, clean and unadulterated, and perhaps most importantly, that it contains no unhealthy or banned substances. While CBD provides many powerful benefits for athletes—see the section below for more details—some athletes avoid CBD because they’re worried that it might cause them to fail a drug test.
But with its formula (contains less than 50mcg of THC per serving and less than 100mcg of THC per recommended daily dose) and its NSF Certified for Sport® status, you can rest assured that SPORT Daily Edge will help you avoid the risks of other CBD products while ensuring you get all the benefits through this high-quality, proven formula.
How SPORT Daily Edge Gives Athletes an Edge in Their Sport
Thousands of athletes around the world are already using Charlotte’s Web full-spectrum hemp extract to fuel their performance in a number of powerful ways:
CBD supports recovery from exercise-induced inflammation.* When you recover in between workouts and games, you’ll be better able to perform at your best when you get back on the court or field.
CBD supports your sleep and helps to encourage regular sleep cycles.* When you get more rest at night, your body is better able to rest, rejuvenate, and recover. As a result, you’ll wake up feeling more energetic. The benefit of improved sleep can be especially important for athletes whose schedule involves frequent travel and all the demands that come with it.
CBD helps deal with everyday stress and anxiety so you can maintain a sense of calm and focus.* Everyone experiences stress from time to time. And when anxieties plague you, sometimes they can distract you from a game, practice, or workout. But with the help of Charlotte’s Web SPORT Daily Edge, you’ll be better able to let go of anxiousness and put 100% of your concentration on the game at hand.
As you can see, many of the athletic benefits of CBD have to do with empowering your body to manage and recover from stress—whether that stress is physical or mental. Any experienced athlete or trainer will tell you that recovery is extremely important. It’s only after the workout or game is over that your body is able to recover and rebuild itself to be a little stronger than before. So by using SPORT Daily Edge to support your recovery, you’ll be helping your body to experience more benefit from the hard work you’re already putting in at the gym.
Lastly, one of the great things about SPORT Daily Edge (and CBD in general) is that it provides all these benefits in the form of a natural, plant-based supplement you can feel good about taking on a regular basis.
Frequently Asked Questions About SPORT Daily Edge
What does NSF Certified for Sport® mean?
NSF’s Certified for Sport® label is designed to help athletes, dieticians, coaches, and consumers around the world make safer decisions when choosing sports supplements. By choosing a Certified for Sport® CBD tincture, you can rest assured that you’re getting a safe, high-quality product that’s suitable for athletes.
It also ensures that:
The certified product has been tested by an independent third-party for 280 banned substances The contents of the product match what is printed on the label There are no unsafe levels of contaminants The product is manufactured at a GMP-compliant facility
Why should I choose NSF Certified for Sport® products?
Not every CBD product is created equal. Some companies may perform only minimal testing on their CBD, which means the quality of their CBD, the quantity of CBD per serving, and the percentage of THC present in their products may vary considerably from one batch to the next. But at Charlotte’s Web, our NSF Certified for Sport® status reassures you that you’re getting the consistency and quality you expect from one of the world’s leading providers of CBD.
What does 25mg/1mL mean?
It means that for every 1mL serving size of tincture you consume, you’ll be getting 25mg of high-quality CBD.
How do I know how much CBD to take?
For new CBD users, our suggestion is: “start low, and go slow.” In other words, begin with a low dosage. If you don’t feel the desired effects, slowly increase the amount you’re taking over time. This method will help you find the minimum effective dose that you can take to experience the benefits of CBD without taking more than you need.
We also know that many athletes are incredibly cautious about what they put into their bodies and how it might make them feel. For that reason, we recommend starting with ½ to 1mL of SPORT Daily Edge, and working your way up as needed.
I care about what I put into my body. Does this product contain any unhealthy ingredients like pesticides or GMOs?
We make every effort to ensure our formulas are as healthy and natural as possible. SPORT Daily Edge is made using USDA Certified Organic hemp and is vegan and non-GMO.
How often should I take SPORT Daily Edge?
In our experience, along with that of many of our customers and CBD users around the world, you’ll experience the greatest benefit from CBD by taking it on a consistent basis each day. The exact time you take it will depend on you and what you’re looking for in your CBD routine.
If you want to experience better sleep, try taking it shortly before bed.* If you’d like to help reduce feelings of everyday anxiety, consider taking it before work, games, or practice—whenever you find yourself experiencing the most anxiety.* And if you’d like to gain the benefit of CBD’s ability to help your recovery from exercise-induced inflammation, take your SPORT Daily Edge shortly after workouts.*
Also, keep in mind that you can take CBD more than once a day! Many people take our products in the morning and evening to experience the benefits of CBD all day and night.
