CBD Oil a Sport Changer in Sports activities


Back in late 2017, the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) quietly issued an update to its prohibited substances list. While the announcement drew little press, down on the third page was a potential game-changer for athletes around the world.

“Cannabidiol (CBD) is no longer prohibited” read the first sentence of the second bullet point underneath their list of prohibited Cannabinoids.

What this meant was CBD oil, which has exploded in over the counter sales over the last few years for a variety of uses (everything from pain management and anxiety to acne and heart disease) was now fair game for many professional athletes.

Derived from hemp plants, the extract can be made and sold in a concentrated formula.
