Earlier this year, the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from its list of banned substances. And in June, Big 3 (a 3-on-3, half-court basketball league founded by Ice Cube, love that guy) became the first pro sports league to allow their players to use cannabidiol (CBD) for pain management and recovery. Other leagues and collegiate programs have begun to drastically reduce penalties for athletes using cannabis products.
Why? Because the sports world is increasingly recognizing what many already know – that CBD has numerous benefits, particularly for athletes.
A little background: CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that many people use to manage pain and inflammation, reduce fatigue, help muscle and joint stiffness, and lower stress. All helpful things – and when you’re an athlete, they can literally change the game.
GQ recently detailed many of the reasons athletes use CBD products, including:
- Alleviating chronic pain
- Ibuprofen alternative
- Recovery and recuperation
- Reducing game-day stress
- Enhancing performance
