It’s Saturday morning, sunny and 75, and the smell of fresh cut grass thickens the air. It’s the perfect day to hit the links. Whether you’re going with a business partner, a potential client, or your father-in-law, preparation is key. The clubs are in the car, balls are still fresh in the box, and on the counter next to your keys is your… gum? CBD gum to be exact.

CBD gum has many potential benefits to the golfer, average and professional alike. Even Phil Mickelson was allegedly seen using CBD oil during The Masters. Both the body and mind can benefit from CBD, and we all know those two things need to be in sync for you to be at the top of your game! 


What is CBD?

CBD affects the body by attaching itself to certain receptors in the brain. These receptors can potentially reduce the body’s expression of post-workout pain and inflammation. Scott McCarron said that he improved his sleep within the first week of trying CBD which is great for golfers since sleep is a driving factor in recovery and energy!


CBD & Your Mind

CBD has been rumored to possibly improve relaxation, reduce anxiety, and increase mental clarity, although there have not been any official studies to back this up just yet, so for now we rely on anecdotal evidence. While the sister chemical, THC, may do the opposite, CBD is suspected of defeating mental fog which is just what you need to calculate your next drive.

The news of CBD is spreading throughout the golf community faster than you can say “FORE!” But how should you take it?

Chewing gum is not only beneficial to help in clearing brain fog, but has also been shown to promote relaxation and stress relief, which can be helpful when you are going to putt on the green.

Synapse® CBD Gum separates itself once again in the CBD Chewing Gum category because it has a liquid center that allows for a fast release of the active ingredients in addition to the benefits of chewing gum to help get your head in the game. You can see the Liquid Core for yourself if you manage to… get a hole in one (ba dum, tss). So go grab your clubs, balls, keys, and don’t forget the best CBD gum for golf!
