More good news for people who can benefit from CBD…. …and in this case, world athletes….

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) – an inherently cautious and restrictive group – is tasked with bringing consistency to anti-doping policies and regulations within sport organizations and governments right across the world.

Following the creation of the World Anti-Doping Code in 2004, WADA was tasked with overseeing activities in a number of key areas: Compliance with the code, monitoring, education of athletes, coaches, parents, and others, and involvement with medical interventions and research.

(And if you want to be sure about whether they have any real clout, just ask the Russian Olympic Team which won’t be allowed to compete under its own flag in the 2018 Winter Games.)

So the developments in this article are welcome, even if (surprise??) the local US anti-doping agency hasn’t yet gotten on board with the program.

“The World Anti-Doping Agency has removed CBD from the 2018 list of prohibited substances.

‘Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited,’ WADA said in a statement on September 29. They warned, however, that THC remains banned.

‘Cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may contain varying concentrations of THC,’ WADA said, urging precaution before imbibing CBD products. Marijuana use is still prohibited and testing positive can result in suspension.”

And here’s a big TRUCE yay for the WADA…. 🙂
