When Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion Alex Morgan, joined other top athletes to co-launch CBD brand, Just Live, she came to it honestly. Every athlete knows all too well the value of recovery.
“As an athlete and a new mom, I’m very focused on a healthy, natural lifestyle,” the soccer superstar says. “CBD has been an important recovery tool for me for some time now and I’m excited to help launch Just Live to provide athletes of all levels with a natural solution to pain and recovery.”
Sure, athletes need CBD pronto, but a new mom? Oh, yeah; even more so. The soccer star knows from what she speaks. Alex Morgan for the win. One more time.
