Francisco Tavares

Performance Coordinator at Sporting Lisbon Football Club

“I have deeply explored scientific literature in recovery from training while I was completing my PhD in Sports Sciences. Recovery in sport requires a multifactorial approach. It has been established that sleep plays a significant role in an athlete’s recovery and also promotes adaptations from training.
There is a growing body of research exploring the effects of CBD on sleep demonstrating controversial yet promising results.

Personally, I have been using PureSport CBD with great success.
