The Benefits Of CBD For Athletes
The benefits of CBD are only now being uncovered as medicinal and recreational marijuana is being legalized in states across the US. CBD, as you may or may not know, is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis that has long been suspected to strong medicinal applications, like pain management, but until recently, has been scantly researched because of the prohibitions on marijuana nationally. However, more and more evidence is being uncovered showing CBD is a powerful, non-addictive source of pain relief for everything from backaches to migraines. This emerging research is good news for many people who suffer from chronic pain, sleep concerns, and now, as it were, for Olympic athletes–who often push their bodies to their physical limit and suffer from the resulting aches, pain an worse. Happily, as the social norms around marijuana and CBD are changing, so too are some of the unnecessary prohibitions. As a result, effective September of 2017, The World Anti-Doping Agency (the agency responsible for governing drug testing in the Olympics, Ultimate Fighting Champion and other major sports events) removed CBD from its list of banned substances. Not only does this legitimize the use of CBD as a non-addictive, non-mind altering pain management medicine, but also means elite athletes no longer have to choose from reduced pain or potential banishment from their sport. The ban was lifted because the agency determined that CBD does not have the potential to enhance sports performance, represent a health risk to the athletes or violate the spirit of sport. Professional athletes, who often suffer from chronic pain and inflammation are breathing a collective sigh of relief since many of them know about the benefits first hand and are now able to manage their symptoms without fear of reprisal in the sports they love and have dedicated their lives to.
