What Does the NFL and CBD Oil have to do with Autism?


We’ve heard so much about CBD oil and had the chance to speak with one of the exhibitors of the Converge Autism Summit, former NLF player Jeff Reed. His organization was there to talk about some of the research around CBD oil and Autism.

Jeff is a two-time Super Bowl winner for the National Football League’s Pittsburgh Steelers, Jeff Reed knows a few things about being in the spotlight. With millions of people focused on him and his leg, he’s kicked game-winning field goals in the sports’ biggest moments.

He’s seen the heights that come with professional athletic success, but also knows what the other side looks like. After his nine-year career in the NFL ended in 2010, Jeff struggled mentally and physically adapting to life off the field.
