Angela Naeth is a Canadian/American triathlete who has won numerous IronMan contests. However, back in 2017 she began experiencing troubling symptoms that eventually led her to be diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

Her symptoms became so crippling that after a race she couldn't even walk without assistance.  It was suggested to her that she supplement her traditional Lyme Disease treatments with CBD.  The intensive antibiotic regime proved exremely harsh on her body and she used CBD to help reduce both the impact of the drugs and the side-effects of the disease itself.

On the 17th of May this year, so amazed was she by the effects of CBD she became the first professional athlete to endorse it. She was quickly followed by others.

She said, "I am 100% behind it. I sleep better, have more energy and am recovering from my workouts so much beter. My anxiety levels have decreased significantly and I generally feel so much better."

She went on to say, "CBD is a great natural avenue for people suffering Lyme Disease or any inflammatory illness, without having to pump chemicals into their bodies. I would love to get the word out to as many people as I can on how much it helped and continues to help me."
