CBD (Cannabidiol) is the substance of the hour. Just in competitive sports, the non-psychoactive Cannabinoid of the hemp plant experienced a downright Hype. Due to its muscle-relaxing, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and pain silently revolutionize the property to the CBD it takes, Regeneration, injury treatment and prevention to.
In the United States, we experimented for years with CBD, from sports law perspective, legal however, this is only since the 1. January 2018. With this date the CBD of the WADA (Doping)list of prohibited substances has been deleted.
all of This sounds for the athletes very well, however, there is a big BUT. Because the second well-known Cannabinoid of the hemp plant, Tetrahdrocannabinol (THC) remains to be an in-Competition prohibited substance.
And here the devil is in the Detail for performance athletes. Because of the CBD Boom led many manufacturers to highlight the positive characteristics for athletes, without, however, to point out the dangers.
The ominous 0,2%-limit of
manufacturers of conventional CBD Oils sold in hemp stores and also in pharmacies, have reported the THC content on the label. This is often given with the following 0.2 percent, and this suggests that the product was legal and safe. However, this is not so. The 0.2 percent limit is different only for the CBD-extraction, mostly used in industrial hemp (including hemp for Fibre, called) of THC-rich cannabis strains. Hemp varieties with a higher THC content than 0.3% apply poison as a addiction and are in the free trade available, and transport is capable of.
conversely, it is often implied that the extracts and products with a THC content of 0.2 to 0.3 percent completely legal and marketable. However, this is not so and therefore there have been increasing reports of problems in drug-pre-test after the intake of such Oils.
Zero tolerance for THC in athletes
From a sports law perspective, the legal situation clearly. The WADA Code has removed Cannabidiol (CBD) from the list of prohibited substances, THC remains in the Competition is prohibited.
In the current Version of the "Prohibited List" ( Link ) describes the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA, the current legal situation: "Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited. Synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic however, cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may also contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance".
English: Cannabidiol, extracted from cannabis plfanze, can contain varying concentrations of THC, that remains a prohibited substance.
safety for athletes
Even if there are in the WADA limit for THC, so there is a possibility that an athlete exceeds this, if he takes regularly THC-containing CBD-Oils. THC is a very lipophilic (fat-loving) substance to be deposited is excellent in the body and these are relatively slow to leaves. So, there were cases in the past that athletes who had smoked a Joint, had delivered weeks after the consumption of a positive sample. Especially regular use will extend the removal time considerably.
Similarly, it may behave even when not completely THC-free CBD products. Since especially in the case of coaching sports, a regular intake of learning, it is recommended that can accumulate over the weeks, a relevant amount of THC. Since every organism is different and THC otherwise breaks down, there can be no reliable formula to calculate this.
For us as a manufacturer, one thing was clear: We will only bring a product to market that is 100 percent safe for the athletes. As a result, we take a very expensive distillation process, which makes the product on the one hand, safe and effective, on the other hand, also cost money. With us, every Batch by accredited laboratory on the THC content is examined, something other than 0.00% will not be placed on the market.
