David Wells: A Conversation About CBDs (And Baseball)

David Wells CBDs

Ocean Beach, San Diego’s David Wells, known for pitching a perfect game and helping two franchises win the World Series, joins Cantore + YEW! for an in-depth discussion about CBDs (cannabidiol) — a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned.”

After a 26 year professional baseball career — filled with multiple injuries and surgeries — the all star gets candid about the benefits of CBDs: “I haven’t taken a pain killer in over 8 years,” David Wells tells Cantore “even with my back pain, my shoulder pain, and my arm, I know the damage that the opiates can do to you.”

If you believe in good timing, Wells’ endorsement of CBDs couldn’t come at a better time. With the growing acceptance of marijuana juxtaposed with the opioid crisis in the United States (and the dark cloud hanging over the pharmaceutical industry,) the general public is more open than ever to learning more about alternative medicine — especially when it comes to treating chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, mental health issues, and a host of other maladies.
“I’m trying to let the whole world know,” the former Major League Baseball pitcher says in the podcast “that CBDs are legit.”  So legit, Wells is part-owner of his own CBD company, CBD Centric (with his buddy Steve from O.B.)
