The New England PGA and Harbor Hemp Company have teamed up to make Harbor Hemp the exclusive CBD Partner of the NEPGA, both parties announced today.
Harbor Hemp, based in Coventry, Connecticut, first debuted to the New England golf market at the 2019 Connecticut Golf Show, and will return to the show later this month.
“CBD is a relatively new space for golf,” NEPGA Executive Director Mike Higgins said. “The New England PGA is excited to partner with a local company that has high quality products, and that is excited to support our NEPGA Professionals and their members.”
Harbor Hemp will serve as the Presenting Partner of the NEPGA Pro-Pro Stroke Play Championship, a one-day, 36-hole Championship that will return to The Haven Country Club on July 20.
“We are delighted to be the exclusive CBD partner of the NEPGA, as well as the presenting partner of the NEPGA Pro-Pro Stroke Play Championship,” said Glen Boggini, co-founder of Harbor Hemp Company. “With more and more golfers using CBD to help with performance and training, being recognized by such a prestigious organization as the NEPGA shows how far the industry has come and we are excited to take CBD into the future of golf.”
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is used to promote general health and wellness. Harbor Hemp offers a variety of products that can be taken through different methods, including oils that are dropped under the tongue, creams that are applied topically, and water-soluble products to be infused into a beverage. Harbor Hemp also offers pet biscuits for dogs. All of Harbor Hemp’s products are manufactured using CBD derived from US-grown, non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp and every batch is independently lab-tested for purity and quality.
“Playing sports for many years, including standing on the practice tee for 30 years, has put a lot of extra pressure on my feet and my knees,” said Dave Tiedemann, Head PGA Professional at Shelter Harbor GC. “Harbor Hemp’s Zero THC Oil and Pain Cream has helped ease my pain and improved how I get my 6-foot-7 frame around on a daily basis. I have tried many products over the years from magnets to other pain relievers without much luck. Harbor Hemp has been exactly what I had hoped for and more.”
