TIDAL HEALTH SOLUTIONS BECOMES OFFICIAL MMJ SUPPLIER OF PRO HOCKEY PLAYERS UNION

In #Canada, Tidal #Health Solutions becomes the official #cannabis #supplier of the #Professional #Hockey Players Association, in the first partnership between a #marijuana company and a pro sports union. Under the multiyear agreement, the #Ontario-based manufacturer will provide current and former PHPA members with access to their medical cannabis products, as well as educational resources emphasizing safety, regulatory issues, and the reduction of other pain medications. The deal will cover 1,600 athletes on #Canadian and #US teams within the second-tier #American Hockey League and the #East Coast Hockey League, and more than 8,000 former and retired players under the union’s #Alumni Network. With many players from the lower divisions moving up to the #NHL, industry experts predict the move could eventually influence the top league’s policies. Though #Tidal is the first to #ink such an agreement, hockey isn’t the only high-impact sport to recognize the #healing benefits of #cannabinoids, as the #UFC recently tapped Love #Hemp as their official #global #CBD partner. According to #research from the Clinical #Journal of #Sports #Medicine, cannabis can act as a useful pain management aid without performance-enhancing effects for #athletes engaged in #high-risk sports.
