CBD In the Recovery Community

CBD In the Recovery Community with professional skateboarder David Hafsteinsson. The pro skater from Iceland has been a fan of CBD topical creams and products for almost two years now, ever since he discovered them as a non-addictive, natural alternative to help his body cope with the rigors of pro skating. Free of opiates since 2015, Hafsteinsson brings us back to the start of his journey and how his views on recovery changed thanks to CBD. It all started at age 13, he said, when he broke his ankle during a skate session. His doctors prescribed Codeine for his pain. While the prescription drug delivered the expected results, many other injuries were right around the corner.

The struggle with pain was far from over. It was only after a particularly bad gallbladder inflammation put David in the hospital that he would discover CBD. And it was none other than his own mother, Ester Vigil, President of 1933 Industries, who’d introduce him to the compound – against the doctors’ orders. The battle against the harming side effects of opioids wasn’t over for David. Even after dropping the drugs completely, withdrawal would prove to be no joy ride. And, while there certainly isn’t a magic formula to overcome withdrawal, David would, once again, find salvation, a hero of sorts, in CBD. avid’s personal experience with CBD would eventually lead him to create his own company in the space under the umbrella of 1933. This is when Canna Hemp X was born, focused mainly on the skateboard community, which David believed would be more likely to receive this alternative positively.
