I’m not typically one to get star-struck.

This is probably because, over the years, I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music, and have taken meetings with some of the most powerful politicians in the world.

After a while, you just get a bit numb to the excitement of it all.  But this was not the case a few weeks ago when I had the opportunity to interview CrossFit legend, Mat Fraser.

I gave this some consideration, trying to figure out why I did get a bit star-struck in this situation, and I came to the conclusion that it was because Mat Fraser is one of the most celebrated athletes in the world of CrossFit: a style of high-intensity interval training coupled with a support system comprised of highly enthusiastic individuals.

I actually started doing CrossFit about three years ago, and I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Not only am I stronger and healthier today than I was 30 years ago, back while I was still in college, but I’m also more confident, more motivated, and less anxious and stressed in everything I do. 

It has been incredibly beneficial for my mental health and my relationships.  It has improved my quality of life in tremendous ways, and quite frankly, has just helped me become a better person.

So as you can imagine, meeting one of the most celebrated athletes of a sport that has had such a huge influence on my life, was pretty exciting for me.  Particularly because in this instance, my discussion with Fraser revolved mostly around CBD: a very popular chemical compound found in cannabis, and one that I’ve been writing about for years.

You see, last year, Mat Fraser joined forces with two other professional athletes to create their own CBD supplement that was essentially inspired by Fraser’s own supplement demands.  What they came up with were two special blends of CBD, superfoods, adaptogens and compounds that can provide both mental clarity and restful sleep.  One is called DREAM and the other is called CLARITY.
