“There’s a definite lack of knowledge but they’re not against it. If anything people are intrigued to find out more…There are four or five people in every club who are taking it – so it’s about creating a product everyone is happy to take and governing bodies are also happy with.”-G Kruis
Kruis has played pro rugby for over 12 years, achieving over 45 caps for England during 2 World Cups and a British & Lions Tour. He was introduced to CBD by fellow teammate Dominic Day who was looking for a natural supplement to help manage symptoms from a long and strenuous career.
“I think we need to instil knowledge in coaches and the unions. There’s obviously still a stigma around cannabis and we want to educate people about it.”-D Day
