Rob Gronkowski, ex tight end of Patriots, claimed that he was going to team up with Woonsocket producer of cannabidiol. Gronkowski is grateful to Woonsocket for reducing his chronic pain, a side effect of his career.
The former NFL player announced at a conference which took place in New York that he would stand up for the right of active athletes to use CBD products, which is not allowed at the moment.
For the first time in more than a decade, I am pain-free, and that is a big deal.

Cannabidiol is an active chemical derived from hemp. It has no psychoactive properties (unlike THC) and doesn’t get its users high. CBD can be used for treating pain, insomnia, seizures, and other medical conditions. Though multiple studies confirm its health benefits, the use of CBD is still limited. NFL, as well as many other professional sports leagues, bans CBD entirely.
Gronkowski now owns Abacus Health Products which produces topicals and is going to make edible products as well when the three-time Super Bowl champion joins the team.
