World Anti-Doping Agency Approves CBD for Amateur and Professional Athletes

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) creates the global standard of what professional and amatuer athletes can and cannot take when involved in sports like mixed martial arts (MMA), football, basketball, soccer, tennis, golf, and others. Both the European and United States Anti-Doping Agencies are closely aligned with the decisions and rulings that WADA makes on a variety of different substances which excites those who are advocates of athletes using Cannabidiol oil.

As of January 1, 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency removed Cannabidiol (CBD), from its Prohibited Substance List. CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis and industrial hemp plants and has been found to be non-pycoactive.  Studies have found the chemical compound to contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotectant properties. WADA reported that  “cannabidiol is no longer prohibited as it does not mimic the effects of THC and clarifies that marijuana is still a prohibited substance.”

The allowance of CBD products could change the way that athletes train, recover, and preform in games. This announcement could open the possibility for a huge market for CBD products. A number of different athletes and companies have shown their support for the use of CBD products for performance and recovery.

Al Harrington former NBA basketball player, who averaged 14 points per game over  launched his own CBD company called Harrington Wellness. Harrington Wellness is  develops products that will contain industrial hemp derived CBD.

Isodiol International Inc. had also recently announced a partnership with European Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) company Cage Warriors to promote and distribute a line of CBD products for training and recovery.
