2015 - 2016 Wales international rugby including Rugby World Cup 2015, 2 x English Premiership Champion, 1 x European Cup Champion.
Post Career Highlights
"I spent 15 years playing top level rugby, being part of 3 championship winning teams as well as playing in 2015 Rugby World Cup. Towards the latter end of my career the ‘wear and tear’ of top level sport meant that I needed numerous operations. After CBD was removed from the banned substance list by WADA I used it to recover from a knee operation and I was amazed at the results and how it aided my recovery and got me back training and playing. This led me to create fourfivecbd along with my co-founder George Kruis, also a professional rugby player. After growing rapidly and helping hundreds of pro athletes I am now full time in the business after retiring in December 2019 from pro rugby.
Now my goal is to grow fourfivecbd whilst spreading the word and educating people on the benefits of CBD and cannabis. "

On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.
The season, originally scheduled to begin in June, was officially cancelled this week.
The CFL had asked the federal government for a $30-million interest-free loan with the intention of creating a hub city (Winnipeg) to host games with no spectators. But the loan was turned down and the CFL put the brakes on plans for a six-game regular season, followed by playoffs and a Grey Cup.
“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
