World Anti Doping Agency will remove Hemp-Extract from Prohibited List in 2018

By Scott Herberg November 22, 2017 0 comments

Marijuana remains a banned substance in most sports around the globe. But the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) has recently reversed course on the Hemp-Derived Compound and removed it from the prohibited substances list.

“Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited” Wada Statement

This ruling will allow athletes in the largest international athletic associations such as IOC and FIFA as well as leagues like UFC, NFL, NBA, NCAA, NHL, MLB, and many more to use Hemp-Extract for pain relief.

Findings suggest Hemp Extract is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, antidepressant, anti-nauseate, muscle relaxant, sleep-aid, and neuroprotectant.

Each year WADA reviews the Prohibited List of banned substances over the course of 9 months. Experts examine scientific and research sources, trends, and intelligence gathered from law enforcement and pharmaceutical companies to stay ahead of those attempting to cheat the system.

Peer-reviewed studies and anecdotal evidence support claims made by athletes and others seeking natural alternatives to addictive opioid pain relievers for long-term pain relief, all touted the healing benefits of Hemp-Extract.

Finally an End to a long UFC controversy

A notable combat sports athlete, Nate Diaz, was thrust into the Hemp controversy in 2016 when it was revealed he was vaping Hemp-Extract following UFC 202 bout against Conor McGregor. Diaz spoke about Hemp-Extract at the post-fight press conference, stating that it helped him to prevent injuries and recover after a fight.

“It helps with healing process and inflammation and stuff like that. You want to get this for before or after the fight, in training, to make your life a better place.” Nate Diaz post-fight press conference Aug. 2016

Other athletes, including former NFL players, have offered similar claims as Diaz, and offered the added benefit resonating with many people.

Hemp-based topicals and oils could help athletes avoid addictive opioid pain relievers.

It is wise to look for hemp Hemp-Extract products, like those offered by companies like Earth Milk, as they will contain less than .3% THC, the federal allowable limit for THC in hemp.

WADA issued a caveat regarding Hemp Extract, reminding athletes that when extracted from marijuana, the extract may contain higher and varying concentrations of THC, which still remains a prohibited substance.

What about synthetic Cannabinoids in sports?

In a move towards the right direction, WADA also added synthetic cannabinoids to the prohibited substances list, labeling them as non-cannibimimetic. Products such as Spice and other fake cannabinoids are concerned by this new ruling.

“Synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic; however, cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may also contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance.” Wada Statement

The updated prohibited substances list will go into effect Jan. 1. 2018.

Until then, Hemp derived products remains prohibited.
