CBD News Aggregator – After years contending with the aches and pains of professional football, former NFL great Brett Favre has partnered with Green Eagle, a CBD brand that bills its products as a safe method of pain management.
Favre, 50, will serve as brand ambassador for the New Jersey-based company, which sells as a variety of CBD products, including topical creams and sprays, meant to help with muscle recovery and pain relief. The former Green Bay Packers star, who has been open about his past struggles with an addiction to painkillers during his lengthy NFL career, said he agreed to work with Green Eagle after learning CBD did not have addictive qualities.
“I’ve turned down a lot of endorsements over my career simply because it just wasn’t a good fit,” Favre told FOX Business. “But this was a product that I could relate to because it works. I’ve tried it, it’s drug-free, and I can certainly speak volumes about what pain pills can do to you. Any alternative to addictive pain relief, I’m for, and this is one of them.”
