MMA Champion Ryan Bader Partners with CBD Company




American Mixed Martial Artist and current champion as both Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight of Bellator MMA, Ryan Bader has taken a step into the CBD space. Partnering with Colorado-based hemp and CBD company, Evo Hemp, Bader has become another leading athlete to embrace the properties of CBD. 

The announcement came through a press release from Evo Hemp, with Bader confirming the partnership on Twitter. “Excited to partner with @evohemp,” Bader posted on Twitter. “I use CBD every day to keep my body and brain healthy and their stuff is top notch.”

Since the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from its banned substances list in 2018, countless athletes have chosen to embrace the cannabinoid for countless reported benefits. These public figures of health and wellness are helping to support the cause of getting more research, regulation and general understanding of CBD.

“Athletes like Ryan who work in punishing physical conditions are seeking relief and we are happy to be a part of the solution,” said Ari Sherman, CEO of Evo Hemp.  “Ryan, who has won seven straight fights and has a big one coming up against Cheick Kongo on September 7th, is one of the best MMA fighters in the world. When we partnered with him in early July our social media blew up within 48 hours.”

Part of the partnership will include Bader doing monthly Instagram takeovers of Evo Hemp’s Instagram page. He will show the audience the various ways he utilizes Evo Hemp’s products for recovery and workouts. 

This isn’t the only exciting news for this growing hemp and CBD company. Evo Hemp recently came out with a new line of topical CBD products, which include everything from creams to lip balms. The company also has a new line of CBD-infused hemp food products, including hemp protein, hemp bars, hemp hearts and hemp seed oil. Additionally, Evo Hemp has various other new brand partnerships with Defiance Fuel Water, The Feels Carob Bites, Forest Cold Brew Coffee and Honeydrop Lemonade.
