Do the recent changes to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substances policy have you wondering- why do mixed martial artists demand CBD? Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a naturally occurring antioxidant and neuroprotectant, from hemp, that is helping to keep Receptra MMA athletes focused, energized, and protected from wear and tear. Just like Martial Arts, the hemp plant and its benefits have evolved with global cultures for thousands of years.
Martial Artists Demand CBD
People are more rebellious than we give them credit for. Consider two facts: cannabis is the fastest-growing industry in the United States. And mixed martial arts (MMA) is among the fastest growing sports in the world.
Previous generations perceived “weed” and “cage-fighting” as dangerous, immoral, and taboo. However, based on the growing popularity of each, it appears modern culture doesn’t buy into the stigmas attached to cannabis and MMA.
At the intersection of these two worlds is Receptra Naturals. With the help of UFC Hall of Famer Bas Rutten, Receptra built the largest MMA sponsorship program in the cannabis industry. Bas credits Receptra’s pure CBD oil with helping him overcome an addiction to pain-killers and ultimately changing his life. The experience motivated him to introduce CBD to all his peers in the mixed martial arts community. Receptra MMA was born.
Featuring a roster of over 30 fighters, including former Olympian Joe Warren. Up and comers Sean O’Malley and Brandon Davis. And Invicta Featherweight Champion Megan Anderson. Along with official endorsements from 8 gyms, Receptra Naturals is the leading provider of pure CBD hemp oil for the MMA community.
At the core of Receptra MMA is a desire to improve performance for mixed martial artists before, during and after training. Taking Receptra prior to a workout allows the naturally occurring neuroprotectants and antioxidants to prepare the body for the intense physical and mental stress that come with high performance training.
“Receptra Pro is part of my morning routine. Every day I wake up and take a few droppers under my tongue. Within minutes I feel focused and ready to start my day. After Training I use the Targeted Topical on any areas that I stressed more than usual.” – Ian Heinisch
Full Spectrum CBD for Mixed Martial Artists
The combination of full-plant hemp extract and MCT oil in Receptra acts as an energy source for the brain to improve focus and reaction time. This unique blend helps boost energy levels and increase mental clarity. Ensuring your mind and body are in top condition during training.
Arguably the greatest advantages of Receptra MMA are realized after training. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, coupled with the added turmeric in select Receptra products work in unison to speed up the post-workout recovery time. The calming effects of CBD also help to regulate sleep patterns so your body can rest and be prepared for the next day.
“I notice that I get the most out of Receptra pure CBD oil when I take it routinely. At first it was tough to get into the groove. But after I took it for three days straight, I really noticed a difference in my recovery. I slept better, and woke up with a better attitude. I really think it helped push me through the slow days.”- Sean O’Malley
Receptra MMA is about more than just helping your body recover physically. Research shows that CBD promotes homeostasis in the body, providing your mind with an overall sense of wellness and balance. Receptra MMA is not simply about making you feel better physically. Strengthening the mind and soul are also critical to success both inside and outside the ring. When going into battle, win or lose, you will never fail with Receptra MMA in your corner.
