2018 Winter Olympians are allowed and are using CBD products

CBD is permitted in the Olympics – how to utilize CBD like Olympians

Olympians train their whole lives for their event. Even though exercise is great, it can really take a toll on the body. Muscle soreness and inflammation can be painful, plus, it’s not great for the stomach, liver, or heart to take over-the-counter (OTC) painkillers, like Aspirin or Advil, all the time

  • CBD helps to decrease muscle inflammation and its associated pain, making it a great alternative to OTC, or even prescription opioids.
  • You can vape hemp-derived CBD for pain, eat an edible, or add some CBD oil to your favorite protein-packed shake.
  • CBD pain relief rubs can be applied directly to sore muscles like lotion. These types of CBD topicals are great for fast-acting relief from inflammation or soreness.
  • Many chronic pain sufferers are trading in dangerous prescription opioid painkillers for CBD-based products. According to a survey of 2,400 people by the Brightfield Group and HelloMD, 42% of CBD users said they stopped taking both OTC and prescription drugs for pain management.
  • If they [athletes] use CBD products derived from the hemp plant (which, legally, can only contain 0.3% THC or less according to the Farm Bill 2014), they should be [test] fine.
