Why most endurance elites don’t endorse CBD (yet) | Outside Online

Sports Illustratedā€™s 2019 Sportsperson of the Year chose to endorse a CBD brand that claims their products will help with athleteā€™s recovery. However, CBD uncertainty has led to elite athletes keeping the oil on the sidelines. In 2018, CBD was removed from the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited drug list. THC is still on the list to be banned during competition. Becky Wade, who has run a 1:09 half marathon and 2:30 marathon, commented on her reason for staying away, stating ā€œI find it hard to get past the strong, cautionary tone that USADA uses around CBD.ā€ Nordic skier Ida Sargent also talked about how very few of her peers used CBD oil because it wasnā€™t NSF-certified.
