George Kruis is a professional rugby player with 12 years of experience playing International and club level rugby. His love for the sport and his exceptional skills have led him to not only gain three European titles and four Premiership trophies for English Premiership club Saracens; but also achieve over 45 caps for England during 2 World Cups and a British and Irish Lions tour.
Dom Day was a professional rugby player for 14 years. He played in the 2015 Rugby World Cup for Wales, and has over 250 top flight games to his name. His long rugby career has taken him around the globe to places including Australia and Japan, finishing his career as a proud member of the English Premiership club Saracens where he fell in love with George & CBD.
Throughout their professional rugby careers George and Dom had become no strangers to long term injury. Whilst both recovering from yet other surgery in 2018, they reflected on the impact this could have on their long term health and fitness.
They had both witnessed other players struggling in the years post retirement and after many years in a contact sport they knew that rugby was ageing their bodies at an accelerated rate but were determined to remain active long after their sports careers ended.
They began to look more closely at the relationship between wellness and nutrition and long term health. Whilst searching for a product that could make a difference, they found CBD.
fourfive launched Europe’s first BSCG tested CBD Oil in 2019 and stormed their way into the wellness sector with their Informed Sport premium nutrition range which launched in 2020.

What is CBD oil?
CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol, a natural compound found in the hemp plant. When taken in the form of oil, capsules or topicals it interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system or ECS. Supplementing your body’s main regulatory system with CBD can help to keep your body in balance.
Contrary to popular belief CBD does not ‘get you high’. Although CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, it is a different compound, THC, which gives you a euphoric feeling. fourfive CBD products all contain less than 0.2% THC which is the legal requirement in the UK.LEARN MORE
Why should I take CBD?
fourfive was formed from first hand experience with CBD in the athletic world. George and Dom saw the effect CBD had on their careers and wanted to share that experience with other athletes and those wanting to maintain an active lifestyle.
CBD is not a ‘one size fits all’. Height, weight, metabolism all impact how well CBD performs in your body. fourfive recommends that all first time users start low and go slow. By building up your daily intake of CBD you will find a ‘sweet spot’ that works for you, without overloading your system.
Is CBD legal in sport?
As an athlete you may be apprehensive to start using CBD. You may be wondering if CBD is a legal supplement and whether you may get penalised by it being picked up in drug tests. Which no athlete can afford to fail.
In January 2018, CBD was removed from the prohibited list issued by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA). Meaning that if CBD was picked up in a drug test for sports you would not be penalised. CBD is also deemed legal in the UK as long as the CBD product contains less than 0.2% THC, which has no noticeable effects on the body or mind. And as more research takes place, the world is waking up to CBD.
Why trust fourfive?
fourfive pride themselves on providing premium products that tested professionals can trust. Their Pro CBD Oil is certified by BSCG (Banned Substance Control Group) making it one of the safest products on the market. Plus it’s infused with Vitamin D3 to complement the CBD and promote a healthy and active lifestyle including maintaining healthy bones.
