2020 Olympic Athletes Can Use CBD For First Time

According to Yahoo, Olympic athletes can use CBD thanks to changes in the World Anti-Doping Agency, the organization that monitors and fights against the use of drugs in the Olympics. This announcement marks a first for Olympic competitors and a major win for CBD advocates. 

In 2018, the WADA announced CBD was removed from its list of banned substances, which had been on the list of banned substances along with THC since the organization was formed in 1999. 

This year, Olympic athletes will be able to use CBD that contains less than 0.3% of THC, the psychoactive component found in marijuana.  


Research is being conducted about the medical benefits. However, testimonials and anecdotal evidence support CBD can benefit several ailments including relief from everyday stress, chronic pain, insomnia and more.

Prominent CBD supporters include many notable pro athletes such as NFL athletes Rob Gronkowski and Tiki Barber,  former NBA players Paul Pierce, John Salley, and Lamar Odom. Pro golfers Greg Norman and Bubba Watson and Count Olympic Gold Medalist and US Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe believe in CBD so much, they’ve partnered with companies to advocate benefits.
