Athletes are finding that CBD helps them in a number of ways. Used before exercise as oil, this cannabinoid can help them perform. After they are done, however, CBD also can be used to help them recover. As a result, CBD is well on its way to becoming a must-have health supplement for athletes.
Following a press conference following a televised sporting event and you saw the star athlete using CBD while answering questions, how would you react? Many knee-jerk reactions could trigger questions about the substance used and its legality. When a heavily bruised Ultimate Fighter Nate Diaz of the UFC did just this during his press conference, he had a simple response to people’s curiosities:
“It’s CBD,” he said.“It helps … inflammation and stuff like that,” he continued.
Starting, January 1st of 2018, that will be an acceptable answer. That’s because the World Doping Agency has officially removed cannabidiol from it’s “banned” list. The announcement is likely to generate a sigh of relief form Diaz and many athletes like him.
