First things first, is CBD a legal substance for athletes? The answer is YES! At the beginning of 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from the list of prohibited substances – in or out of competition.
So if it isn't strictly classed as a 'performance enhancer', why is it still being recommended by amateur and professional athletes?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has been reported to act as an anti-inflammatory, which can help athletes with any aches & pains they may have from their sport.
CBD can be massively useful for enhancing recovery and reducing recovery times.
Athletes such as Dominic Day, Conor McGregor, and Eddie Hall have all reportedly talked about the benefits they have found in supplementing with CBD.
Joe Rogan has also openly talked, on his podcast, about its anti-inflammatory benefits, plus its benefits for improving sleep.
Athletes who consume CBD report greater ease going to sleep and more restful nights.
