Ian ‘The Hurricane’ Heinisch is one of the hottest prospects on the amateur MMA circuit. The entertaining fighter is not only undefeated in the octagon, he is also a fierce supporter of hemp-based CBD oil.
Heinisch is known for using CBD oil, and is now sponsored by Receptra Naturals, a company that specializes in hemp extracts. The fighter is based in the cannabis haven of Denver, Colorado.
Despite getting into hot water with the law in both America and abroad, Heinisch has shown himself to be a hardened character – something which he displays regularly in the ring. The Hurricane puts in a similarly high level of effort when it comes to advocating CBD.
CBD oil has helped Ian immensely during his recovery process. Intense workouts and strict nutrient diets take their toll, and Heinisch find that CBD helps him both mentally and physically.
All athletes would do well to look at the chemical properties and benefits of CBD oil. It’s effectively cannabis without the high – the cannabinoid helps with the digestion process and promotes healthy, restful sleep patterns.
CBD is also rich in antioxidants, which not only banishes free radicals but oxidizes muscles and joints, maximizing Ian’s workout sessions. In addition, as already stated, CBD aids the recovery process, allowing Heinisch to train even harder next time.
CBD is also a neuroprotective compound. Given concussion is common among MMA fighters, this property is particularly relevant, and one that NFL athletes are also hoping to harness. CBD also warns off CTE, a disease caused by repeated head trauma.
CBD has staved off Ian’s aches and pains and totally changed how he approaches fitness and fight preparation. It’s no wonder that the hardship the Hurricane has faced outside the ring, combined with a meticulous training program and a perfect diet have combined to make Heinisch one of the most feared and dominant fighters in the MMA today.
However, this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of CBD being used in the mixed martial arts world. Champion fighter Nate Diaz was seen with a CBD vape pen in a press conference following UFC 202.
