CBD without the High for an Athlete – Testimonial

December 6th, 2019

Author: Marisa Asplund, MA, LPC

As a former professional endurance athlete with twelve plus years in the elite road cycling and triathlon arena, I’ve experienced over and over products that have been touted as the holy grail of performance. 

In the end, all of these products (at best) provided a marginal placebo type of effect and nothing seemed to withstand all the hype.  This leads me back to the three basic pillars of performance/fitness: good diet, good sleep, hard work (training).

At age 42, I have the wisdom to know there are no shortcuts to performance and fitness-the basics do work. 

I’ve seen trends in diets come and go and also trends in training methodology come and go.  In the end and as stated it all comes back to the balance between physical training stressors, good nutrition, and perhaps as I age the most important: rest and recovery…meaning: SLEEP!


When I first started to hear about CBD products and their potential positive effects for athletes I must admit I was a skeptic, likening it to what I stated above-a new trendy and marketable product that tries “hack” the simple formula.  However, when my trusted bodyworker told me about the guys at 43CBD and their high-quality products, along with a transparent mission statement-I was intrigued and decided to try the tincture.

I have been using the CBD tincture oil most nights now for about three months and can honestly and whole heartily say that the quality of my sleep is the best I can ever remember. 

I sleep deeply and wake up more restored than I ever have.  There are no lingering side effects like brain fog or feeling groggy. Additionally, the CBD tincture does not make me tired or force me to fall asleep-the magic happens while I sleep-it’s all integrated.

As an athlete as well, the sense of feeling clean in my body and my mind are a priority.  I do not consume much alcohol or take in other substances due to this fact. 

One could call me more “straight and narrow”. 

Really, it just comes down to having a sensitive and clean running system over all these years and not wanting anything to get in the way of that.  That is another hugely amazing property of the 43CBD products-it does not interfere with my desire to be a clean and clear athlete.  I love that the mission statement is to provide top-quality CBD products without a high! 

This stuff really works.

I have always been on the more anxious side of things-which has its benefits in terms of pushing me to never settle for mediocrity-always striving for excellence but again as I age this low-grade anxiety has interfered with my ability to find some ease and sleep better. 

The 43CBD tincture has gently taken the edge of my high achiever anxiety- letting me sleep and rest better but then also letting my strong work ethic come to the surface.

I now am using the 43CBD healing salves and am curious to see how they also synergistically work with my body to provide pain relief and recovery-more coming soon!

“the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

“Best bang for your buck on the market that I am aware of. 43 Solutions CBD has helped me sleep well, be more calm and collected, helped with various aches and pains, and tastes great too. Give it a try before reaching for prescription anti-anxiety or sleep meds.”

“No more expensive trips to the animal hospital and our dog is much happier and healthier! Thanks, Greg and the 43 CBD crew for producing such a high-quality CBD tincture that works amazingly!”

“43 CBD has been my source for quality broad spectrum CBD for about three years now. CBD relieves severe spasticity and muscle cramps at night that prevent me from sleeping. CBD  may not do everything, but it has been very important in improving my quality of life when nothing else helped. I highly recommend these guys!”
