CBD company Canopy Growth and health sports brand BioSteel have together launched a new line of products that includes sports formulas, hydration mixes, protein powders, and even a sugar-free protein gum.
Mark Zekulin, the then CEO of Canopy Growth stated that BioSteel has a reputation for being “best-in-class” in its provision of natural sports nutrition formulas, and the formulas are well positioned to benefit from the upward trend of plant-based and natural products. Further, Michael Cammalleri, the co-founder of BioSteel indicated athletes are looking for healthier alternatives in light of the negative effects of prescription painkillers.
