Former American race pilot invests in the Beam company

Danica Patrick is a former race pilot who left the top competition in 2018. A few days ago it was announced that the most successful American driver has invested in the CBD product manufacturing company, Beam. This CBD company was founded by several sportsmen among which are players like the baseball player of the Chicago White Sox, Kevin Duran, or the former hockey team player, Matt Lombardi.

Danica Patrick was used to competing at 200 miles per hour in car races such as Nascar and IndyCar. The former pilot also has her own sports podcast called Pretty Intense and will now be part of the Beam company. The products of this cannabidiol-focused company have no trace of THC, the psychotropic element of cannabis.

Beam, a cannabis company founded by sporstmen

Beam is a company that markets organic products based on hemp Cannabidiol (CBD), in addition to certain food supplements. The co-founders of the company are Kevin Duran and Matt Lombardi, two sportsmen who decided to step into the cannabis industry. Their decision to invest in the cannabis market was made thanks to their curiosity for finding natural non-toxic remedies that met their standards.

According to Kevin and Matt, Beam co-founders, cannabis changed their lives for the best. Their experience pushed them to take action in order to create a top-quality product like no other on the market, after struggling to find one on the current american cannabis market. 

That’s why one of the main values of the company is transparency and honesty, looking to put all its efforts to create top-notch cannabis products and satisfy all the consumers’ needs and expectations.

“These are very good, very effective products,” said Danica Patrick about the Boston-based brand. After meeting with the owners, she said that they are “two great guys with a great plan and a great ambition.”

“I hope people will trust me, especially at this point in my career when I’m past the days of needing a sponsor to go to the races,” said Danica, who became the brand’s ambassador. “In fact, I’m paying for the things I want to do now. I’m at the stage of wanting to offer help and wanting to help people grow and help them feel better both mentally and physically.”

CBD products are positioning on the U.S. market

With the huge opiate epidemic sweeping the United States, Cannabidiol (CBD) users see it as an alternative for dealing with pain.

Although Cannabidiol (CBD) is not yet approved by the FDA, Beam’s products are rigorously tested, said Kevin Moran, a former baseball player and co-founder of the company. “We test the products not once but three times to make sure there’s no THC in the products.”

On the other hand, Patrick told Forbes, “I’ve always been a bit of a hippie,” she said, adding that her interest in health, nutrition and exercise began in her early days in England. Going to a café next to a bookstore, she came across “a mountain of books” about health and wellness. “I would sit and drink my coffee and flip through them,” she said. “I’ve always been attracted to wellness.”
