After over 35 years of international competition, including five Olympic Games, two Olympic medals, two World Cup medals, four Pan American Games medals, and countless national and world championships, dressage rider Steffen Peters started experiencing troubling anxiety in advance of the 2020 Olympic Games.
“The pressure of making teams and constantly delivering caused severe anxiety. I didn’t understand the anxiety symptoms, and thought I had all kinds of life threatening diseases. I saw many doctors and coaches, and they assured me that I was healthy.” — Steffen Peters
Despite a clean bill of physical health, Steffen’s quest to attend to his mental health and deal with his crippling anxiety led him to explore all options and ultimately find cannabidiol or CBD. But not just any CBD. Steffen’s status as an Olympic athlete places him under the strict regulations of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) that allow CBD — but explicitly ban THC and other cannabinoids. In a space where CBD products are proliferating, someone like Steffen needs to know what’s really in the bottle. Enter the Trove line of premium CBD products.
“Since starting with Trove, I’ve been able to relax under pressure, and as a result have had wonderfully focused rides on Mopsie. [AKA Four Winds Farm’s “Suppenkasper”, Steffen’s equine partner contending for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics]. And the massage oils and the balms seem to work wonders in addressing pain and relieving tension. All are wonderful products! If I’m open about how anxiety affected me, my hope is that others can benefit, too. ” — Steffen Peters
Trove CBD products contain pure CBD isolate, extracted from organically grown USA hemp, and are THC free, non GMO, gluten free, and vegetarian. Featuring the highest quality control standards, Trove products are third party tested to ensure effective concentration and the absence of contaminants or unwanted cannabinoids.
