On this week's NPG the guys cover the 3M championship, Sam hits a hole in one, Tony continues his deep dive into the guts of golf balls, and they consider making a CBD buyer's guide.

Second @PMookie on the CBD testing. Plus, the OTC stuff is so wildly unregulated you could get different bases (hemp vs actual MJ), strains inside those bases, and different potencies. Plus, considering that people's genetics are all unique, one person could be knocked on their rear by one drop and the other feels absolutely nothing. 

 

It's certainly an interesting topic, but best left to the pros to test. If you guys want to review some products, that's a different story, but again effects can vary wildly...

I said the same thing. I'm starting to change my mind. If it can help with my shoulder problems, I might give it a try. I will talk to my dr.. first, though.

Good stuff guys. To answer the question about if you should “test” CBD products, I’d have to say a big “no”. I’ve worked in the medical field for years, and drug testing is an extensive process that requires thousands of enrollees, a TON of money, and research departments that y’all don’t have. On average, from idea, to testing, to market, it takes a drug over 10 years to make it to the general public. A couple guys taking CBD drops wouldn’t qualify as a legit study.
Anyway, just my $.02.

Exactly my thoughts as well. It simply requires more capital and expertise than what the MGS guys have to do an accurate and conclusive study. Sure they could go out on the course with one of these products in their system and make some observations, but they'd be largely subjective in my opinion.

While they couldn’t publish an official this is the best this is the worst test. They could do an anecdotal type of article going over how using it effected their play and such

....one thing to remember here - this is a golf forum and I'm pretty sure they would do as @Mr_Theoo suggested and test the products in relation to your golfing performance.  Some folks get really really nervous playing - so much so that it can have a detrimental effect on their swing.

These guys are always, always on the lookout for whatever it takes to make YOU a better golfer.  

Whatever. It. Takes.

At my age I would love to be able to play golf pain-free, but that's a "pipe dream".  However, I am not about to take something based on anecdotal information.  When it's been fully tested and determined to be safe, maybe.  But I feel that will be long after my playing days are over.

Sounds like what beta blockers would do, and I thought those were illegal.  

While we're at it, why not let these guys use headphones to listen to soothing music that has a nice tempo for their swing.  Seems to be the same thing to me.

In some states use of CBD is legal.  Of course in a tournament setting you'll need to check the rules.

Absolutely - if headphones help you play better golf then by all means...

at the end of the day it is about enjoying the game and playing your best...those 2 usually go hand-in-hand but there are days where you can still enjoy the game and not have your best.

Yeah, we are one of them and pot is legal too, but I seriously doubt pot would help anyone play better.  But if it did, we all should probably be using it?  Right?  {I'm being sarcastic... sorry}  I guess that is why it's just as illegal as listening to the music I stated above.

I understand CBD oil is not pot; my wife purchased some in a jar that has the consistency of honey.  I tried some on my shoulder but saw no effect.  She hasn't seen any effect either.

I think that's the best we could go for - anecdotal evidence. Completely understand where you're coming from @GolfSpy Stroker. Not saying it's a bad idea, just one that needs a lot of "*" in the findings,"this worked for us, and it might* work for you guys too" 

 

Best of luck!

what if it wasn't CBD ??

What if - for example we saw Phil and Tiger chewing gum - what if the staff said should we test if chewing gum, chewing gummies, or sucking on a lollipop helped make you a better golfer ??

I think the fact that it is "CBD" is clouding the issue (haha)... 

Look - I get the stigma with CBD, marijuana, hemp, THC - whatever it's called; I don't use it but I do know of some people who had cancer and it helped them tremendously.  I don't think anyone is proposing that you go get high and try playing golf....

100% with you guys on this. The stigma's are old and bunked . If you try an oil and it doesn't work or makes you feel "weird," then move on. Doesn't mean anyone should be a teetotaler about the issue and put their head in the sand - lest we also say no beers on the course as well 😲

This goes for EVERY test that has ever been done or ever will be done.

EVERY
SINGLE
ONE

There is not a single product I can think of that has been tested where that * shouldn't be applied.

I'd love for someone to change my opinion though...

I do recall reading a golf digest article where a guy in Colorado did play high and he had a pretty enjoyable round, not saying they should try it but people have. I do think a big hurdle to get over is a lot of people are from a different generation where these products were very taboo and changing that thought about them is hard to do

I dont they are actually going to conduct a TEST, but more of an opinion based review of what it is like to take CBD. Obviously everyone will react different to different things based on all sorts of body and health conditions.

But if they say 'Hey i took CBD instead of Advil before a round and felt great and not anxious. Yall should check it out possibly.'

I know NOTHING on CBD so some information is better than none.

Not for me. When MGS test clubs/balls, etc, they can always say the data is sound, and they’ve gone to industry experts to keep improving it, and have what they can call “validated” information. With ANY medical supplement, or medication, MGS has no way of getting the same result that can be backed by data. MGS would be venturing into the realm of YouTube reviews, which in the last “No Putts Given” was not given a very positive review... Stick to what MGS can clearly collect TRUE data on, with the top methods available.

I still wouldn't want them testing it.

Honestly, testing bluetooth speakers is a bit of a stretch depending on how you look at it. We don't really care as golfers, because they are doing real-world testing, but if you ran the same test through a group of audiophiles it wouldn't pass the sniff test. They'd want to know things like what materials are used in the construction of the speakers, frequency range, and RMS power rating (Watts).
