CBD and the Olympics!

The new year is starting off right for CBD advocates all over the world. In September of 2017, The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) made the announcement to remove Cannabidiol (CBD) from the prohibited substance list. This ruling went into effect on January 1, 2018.  Just in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics, which is going to be the first year CBD is going to be completely legal for participants to take. Of course, every international sport team with be affected by this ruling and can now benefit from CBD use!

There are many sports stars that support the Cannabis movement, and are excited to see CBD removed from the ban list. Former snowboarding gold medal winner of the 1998 Winter Olympics, Ross Rebagliati, thinks this ruling is a great first step. He was quoted recently saying “CBD is one of the most effective substances for treating inflammatory issues, aches and pains caused by the physical punishment world-class athletes must regularly endure to train and compete at a high level”.

While CBD oil is no longer prohibited, its sister cannabinoid, THC, still remains illegal and banned from international sports.
