CBD sports supplement company Champions + Legends has landed its first set of athlete partners and they are big ones. Literally.

The CBD company announced they have partnered with two-time Super Bowl champion James Harrison and Thor “The Mountain” Björnsson, formerly the World’s Strongest Man and an actor in Game of Thrones.

“Integrating products that are geared towards rest and recovery are vital for preventing injuries and allowing me to stay in the gym and continuously push myself to maximum capacity,” Björnsson said in a press release. He would know. The actor is the first man to win the Arnold Strongman Classic, Europe’s Strongest Man and World’s Strongest Man in the same year.

“With Champions + Legends, I am able to stay in the gym longer and more often,” said James Harrison, the retired NFL linebacker. “As I get older, the recovery process is just as important as pushing weights and Champions + Legends products help me take my fitness to even higher levels.”

The company has a line of products intended to boost workouts and recovery with full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD, grown in Kentucky and Colorado. The company said each product goes through six stages of testing to assure the dosage indicated on the label is exact.

The athletes join a long line of other sports professionals who have partnered with CBD companies or founded their own ventures in recent years, including former NHL-enforcers Daniel Carcillo and Riley Cote.
