CBD in professional sports

The current status of cannabidiol (CBD) in professional


CBD is not currently listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List. As a result, it is permitted to use in sport. All other cannabinoids (including but not limited to cannabis, hashish, marijuana, and THC) are prohibited in-competition. The intention of the regulations is to prohibit cannabinoids that activate the same receptors in the brain as activated by THC.

When it comes to professional sports, we would always recommend the broad spectrum CBD products because of the potential risk of THC showing up with full spectrum.

NB. THC has a reporting threshold in urine of 150 nanograms per millilitre. Other cannabinoids on the Prohibited List do not have a reporting threshold, meaning that the detection of even the smallest amount in urine will be considered as an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF).
