Fourfivecbd hasn’t been a feature on South African soil for all that long but they’re already making an impact on the local CBD and cannabis industry as well as introducing CBD in rugby. Started by Welsh and England veteran rugby players, Dom Day and George Kruis, the UK brand launched CBD in South Africa in October 2019 and have already come a long way since then and they have made their way into the hands of many athletes and active people alike.
Dom and George are two professional rugby players who know everything about the impact and demands of sport and training on the body, which is partly what introduced them to CBD and the benefits of using CBD oil for sport, as they actively searched for new ways in which they could manage their injuries and ultimately speed up recovery – helping them be at their best after every game.
Since hitting the shores of South Africa, fourfivecbd has created a buzz not only for their impact on recovery, sleep, and wellness but also for their contribution to being environmentally friendly, vegan-friendly, and Herbicide & Pesticide free, which appeals to a great mass-market.
Recently tried and tested, Professional Rugby Player from South Africa, Justin Geduld describes fourfivecbd as “purposeful” in his experience.
Geduld currently applies his trade for the South Africa Sevens team and has played in tournaments in New Zealand, Dubai, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Japan and Scotland. Geduld was included in a 12-man squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, who went on to place third.
What was your overall impression of fourfivecbd?
Justin Geduld: The brand on its own is overly impressive. Dom Day and George Kruis have done a great job of putting their products on the map. They’re recognisable, they’re informative, and they’re of a high standard.
What were your concerns with taking CBD in Rugby and in South Africa?
Justin Geduld: With any medications or supplements, I am naturally cautious as being a sportsman comes with incredible demands, but fourfivecbd has ensured each customer of their standards and quality through their testing and lab-results which is reassuring and gives all sportsmen peace of mind that the products are legal.
What improvements did you account for?
Justin Geduld: Much like any rugby player, I have suffered a few injuries in my time, so overall recovery and well-being are of the utmost importance to me. I found with their oils, I had more energy and felt less “burnt out” at times.
Has your overall understanding of CBD changed?
Justin Geduld: Absolutely! Education is key. Before, I was not aware of the actual benefits or process when it came to CBD products and its extraction and effects on the body, etc. The more people understand it, the more they will start using it for sure. Highly recommended.
Their range, which consists of CBD oils, CBD muscle rubs, and CBD capsules, are specifically designed with active people in mind, not just sportsmen. These products are all easy to use, easy to dose, and easy to take with you even on your busiest days. Hailed by many for being the best CBD products in South Africa, they’re taking over the recovery game like never before.
