More news from Sports World: CBD and the MMA….

As medical cannabis becomes accepted in more and more quarters, its emergence as a legal, accepted, mainstream treatment becomes more and more inevitable as we emerge from the "bad old days."

"Mironenko's story is just one of many where professional and amaeteur fighters use CBD to help recover and protect their bodies from the physical and psychological toll of mixed martial arts (MMA).

It's a trend that MMA fighters find themselves ahead on compared to the rest of the sports world. Writing for the Telegraph, longtime fight sports journalist Gareth Davies argued that MMA athletes looking for pain management and 'neuro-protective plusses' to protect against traumatic brain injuries had anticipated the CBD trend ahead of most other athletes and sports organizations.

The trend became all the more evident when major MMA organizations began endorsing CBD wholeheartedly."
