CBD approved by WADA
As of 2018, Cannabidiol (CBD) was approved and removed from the prohibited list for use by athletes by WADA. CBD has not been found to be addictive.
Cannabidiol, more commonly referred to as CBD, is the non-psychoactive, pain-relieving cannabinoid found in cannabis. In addition to pain relief, CBD offers a variety of other health benefits including reducing inflammation, anti-cancer properties, as well as neuroprotective benefits for athletes who may be prone to traumatic brain injury such as football players and MMA fighters.
