Mr Universe And CBD Oil: Josh Maley Sponsorship

We’re thrilled at Nordic Botanics to announce we are now supporting the current NABBA Mr Universe, Josh Maley, with all of his CBD product needs. At 6’5″ and 127kg, Josh is a Viking worthy to hold the prestigious title previously held by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Josh has been competing on bodybuilding stages since 2010, with a successful career in UKBFF before transitioning to NABBA and eventually winning the prestigious NABBA Mr Universe Class 1 in 2017.

Bodybuilding is judged on overall mass, symmetry and conditioning. To compete at Josh’s level, athletes must lift weights for many hours, 5 or more days per week, performing thousands of reps throughout the week!

This intense training load places huge stress on the muscles as they are constantly being stimulated to grow in every direction. A bodybuilders life is usually one of constant aches and inflammation!

To be the best, I’ve always made sure I’m giving my body every healthy advantage possible. I began to experiment with adding CBD oil to my daily vitamin and food supplement stack to see if it would help with recovery as much as I’d heard from some of the other pros on the circuit.


I was massively surprised at how noticeable the effects were, and immediately started looking for a premium brand to use long term. That’s when I found Nordic Botanics and their oil was a perfect fit for me.

CBD oil has been proven to have none of the psychoactive effects of THC (the part of Cannabis that makes you feel

‘high’ or ‘stoned’). This means it doesn’t dull your focus or pump during exercise! Instead, multiple studies have shown CBD oil to be particularly effective at reducing muscle inflammation, muscle pain, muscle spasms, back and joint pain. These are just some of the benefits of CBD that might help a bodybuilder with recovery (which in turn, allows for more training and/or a better quality of life as a bodybuilder).

Nordic Botanics CBD oil is available to buy from our online store. We are based in the UK and ship to all countries where CBD oil is legal.
