Sport: sports performance and CBD

In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from the list of prohibited substances, although it took two years for the measure to come into effect. Thus, since 2020, CBD has become an essential natural product for sports training, both the occasional athlete and the elite athlete . In fact, it was the star substance in the last Olympic Games, as it is not considered a doping substance. Furthermore, it is a completely safe component of cannabis, 100% legal, without side effects and not at all psychoactive.

It is known that CBD, which comes from a variety of cannabis plant called industrial hemp, helps the endocannabinoid system function more efficiently, a set of receptors present in the human body whose activity affects the entire organism, including the skin, hence their multiple benefits as cosmetic products.
