Vitamin D and CBD both benefit sports and are not considered to be doping – Sept 2019

Lots of Athletes Say CBD Is a Better Painkiller. Is It?

  • “In 2017, the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from its list of banned substances. That same year, former National Basketball Association commissioner David Stern said the league should change its policies to allow players to use medical marijuana. And this year, the National Football League Players’ Association partnered with the NFL to study marijuana and CBD as alternatives to other pain therapies, namely opioids.”
  • “Enthusiasts like former New York Giants receiver Tiki Barber, former Boston Celtic Paul Pierce, and recently retired New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski all have their own CBD companies that promote the substance as a powerful healing tool that can manage pain, and in Pierce’s case, help with crippling anxiety.”
  • “This month, the NIH announced nine new research grants devoted to investigating CBD’s potential as an anti-inflammatory and pain relief therapy.”
