US startup claims to make activewear from CBD

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2019-08-21 14:45:00 –

A US-based start-up claims it is the first brand to offer activewear infused with CBD (cannabidiol), an active ingredient in cannabis derived from the hemp plant.

Acabada CEO and co-founder Seth Baum says CBD can have a positive effect on pain and inflammation.

He said: "While typical CBD products such as tinctures and edibles are growing exponentially in popularity, we began to envision a product that addressed health and wellness through a different lens."

The range is made in Portugal, and uses a finishing treatment to bond microcapsules to fibres. Each garment contains up to 25 grams of CBD, and the effect can withstand 40 washes.

Acabada’s first collection includes sports bras, tops, leggings, shorts, jackets and bodysuits, with prices starting at $120.

"Just like CBD is infused in our activewear, the letters CBD are in our name aCaBaDa," explains Mr Baum. "Acabada comes from the Portuguese word for 'finish,' acabar, perfectly telling the story that our fabrics have been finished with CBD."
