CBD Olympics is coming !
Welcome to the CBD Olympics. It looks like the world is waking up to the benefits of CBD. No longer is CBD being grouped in with psychoactive drugs like marijuana. Last month, the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA), the body that decides what chemicals professional athletes are and aren’t allowed to take, removed CBD from its banned list.
When assessing which substances athletes can and can’t take, they use 3 criteria.
- Does the substance enhance the potential of a sportsperson’s performance?
- Is there a health risk associated with it?
- Does it violate the spirit of free competition?
In all cases, WADA decided that for CBD, the answer is no. On January 1st 2018, CBD will be off the banned list.
Of course, marijuana remains totally banned. Anyone who tests positive for marijuana is looking at a long suspension from their sport.
It’s great news for athletes, or anyone else, who is using CBD to improve their quality of life, maybe a CBD Olympics could happen in the future.
CBD can be great for improving your mood, helping you relax and helping your body recover from strains.
Some athletes have already started with CBD. Last year, Nate Diaz, the UFC fighter received a warning from the US Anti Doping Agency after vaping CBD at a public press conference. Former NFL players, Ebeneezer Ekuban and Eugene Monroe, have also gone on record about the benefits of CBD.
Considering that traditional pain relief for sportspeople consists of opioids, painkilling pills that make you feel groggy and disoriented, using a natural product like CBD should be a real winner. We look forward to seeing someone vape CBD from the top of an Olympic podium very soon!
The question is, now that CBD is good enough for Olympic athletes, is it good enough for you?
