The extractions of CBD are an excellent option

The CBD, suitable for athletes, according to the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The CBD is already the first active principle of cannabis to leave the list of components banned by the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency).

For the first time in the history of doping, one of the components of marijuana is considered suitable for athletes, and its use is not penalized.

This has been reflected in the Prohibited List, which will come into force in January 2018.

This list continues to penalize the consumption of cannabinoids in general and THC in particular but points out that the use of cannabidiol is allowed.


The CBD or cannabidiol is not psychoactive component present in some varieties of cannabis which, besides acting as antagonist THC, reducing the effects, have anticonvulsive, neuroprotective, muscle relaxants and anti-stress properties. Inevitably because it does not alter the brain functions of users and given that it has proven medicinal properties, the World Anti-Doping Agency has removed the CBD from the list of prohibited 2018 for professional athletes.

He communicated this at a press conference  Oliver Niggli, General Director of WADA, last September and will be registered in the list that will be made public next year. So far the agency categorized marijuana as “all natural cannabinoids: cannabis, hashish and marijuana,” which included the CBD. However, from now on, this cannabinoid is specified as an exception.

Athletes And Marijuana

The relationship between professional athletes and marijuana is much narrower than one might imagine a priori. The cases of athletes who have seen their career damaged to a greater or lesser extent because of actual cannabis use are sadly famous -

although this does not imply a deterioration of the physical capabilities of the person. The swimmer Michael Phelps was suspended three months in 2008 for cannabis use, while the Spanish gymnast GervasioDeferr lost all the titles achieved between October 2002 and January 2003 -

including a gold medal and a world-class one- for the same reason. Despite this, more and more athletes leave the 'cannabis closet' publicly defending the use, both therapeutic and recreational, of marijuana. Here are some of them.

Eugene Monroe, American Football (NFL)

This football tackle has played seven seasons in the National Football League (NFL). He announced his professional retirement at the age of 29, the result of brain traumas due to blows on the field. The pain resulting from the collisions on the lawn and the analgesic effects of marijuana for his organism has led him to demand the decriminalization of antidoping of the plant in his discipline. In recent years he has become a cannabis activist of reference worldwide.

Nate Diaz, Boxing

Floyd Landis, cycling

The American athlete of Mexican origin had already stated publicly that he used marijuana. The most obvious statement, and commented on in the media, was when he vaporized CBD oil during the press conference offered after the UFC 202 combat, an event of mixed martial arts organized by the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Las Vegas, during which Diaz faced to Diaz McGregor. When asked by a journalist, the boxer replied that it was CBD: "something that makes life a better place," he said.
This cyclist of American origin gave a lot to talk about when, after winning the 2006 Tour de France, the title was snatched when he tested positive for testosterone. Years later, after retiring from professional cycling, he set up a cannabis dispensary in Colorado, a state where the consumption of marihuana is legal since 2000 on a therapeutic level and recreationally since 2012. The clinic run by Landis is Floyd's of Leadville.

How To Make Oil-Rich In Cbd

The CBD is a cannabinoid found in marijuana, responsible for some medicinal properties of cannabis, but without altering the mood of its consumer. The extractions of CBD are an excellent option for those who wish to treat severe pain or other problems such as seizures, because they will not have to smoke the plant, but they can take advantage of its properties by consuming it, or by applying it directly on the affected area.

What do you need:

We recommend doing it with varieties that at least have a THC: CBD 1: 1 ratio, although the purest extractions will always be obtained with strains whose predominant cannabinoid is CBD. With 1g of dried buds per 100ml of oil will be enough, this time we will make 500ml of oil, so we will need 5g of dried buds to get a highly active oil.

It is essential that the plant material used is entirely free of chemicals, so the best option will always be marijuana grown by oneself, as it will be the only way to guarantee that it does not have any toxins in its composition.

We can use any oil (as long as it is suitable for human consumption) to make our lotion, although the most recommended are hemp oil and olive oil, as they will better preserve the properties of cannabis, allowing us to store it for a more extended period.

How it is done:

Take a saucepan or a pot and fill it with about 500ml of water, put it on low heat and wait a couple of minutes. When the water is hot, you should add the 500ml of oil and the 5g of marijuana, stir slowly and keep on a very gentle heat. During approximately one hour we will have to keep the fire, controlling that the water does not begin to boil, stirring gently every so often.

The water will begin its boiling at 100ºC; if this happens, we will have to lower the temperature, because as it continues to boil it will quickly reach 150ºC, which will cause some cannabinoids to evaporate. We will have to make sure that it stays at a mild temperature even if it takes a longer time because we will ensure that it releases all the cannabinoids, without altering or evaporating them.

Once enough time has passed to release all the cannabinoids, we will proceed to remove the pot from the fire and let it cool to room temperature. When the oil has lowered its cold, it will reach a more robust/ pasty form, so it will hardly cost you to separate it from the water, which will remain in its liquid form.

Later you will have to filter the oil using a strainer, so that all plant challenges are trapped in the mesh, leaving your extraction ready to be used. To conserve it as long as possible, we recommend storing it in a canister with an airtight seal, in a calm and dry place, away from sunlight.

Mode of use:

In case of having a pain in a specific area, we can apply it as any cream, making its effect directly on the particular area.

If we want to treat something more general such as convulsions or spasms, we can directly place a couple of drops under the tongue, so that its effect is distributed throughout the body.

If the flavor is too excessive applied directly under the tongue, you can also use it to taste different foods, so that you will take advantage of the same medicinal properties, but its character will be softer since it will only bring subtle nuances to the flavor.
