Sports league doctors are concerned about the lack of research on the effects of CBD oil products for athletes.
CBD products are popular recently. For example, many athletes, such as former NFL player Brett Favre, approve of their use in the fight against pain. The percentage of athletes who use CBD products is 8% of the total number of consumers.
However, despite this, the NFL league does not fully trust such recovery methods. Recently, representatives said they would like to see more scientific research and have more scientific data on how CBD affects athletes.
The league expressed interest for the reason that professional sports are a lot of money at stake. And it is worth studying in detail the impact of Cannabinoids on athletes and their performance.
Kevin Hill, a physician, and co-chairman of the pain relief committee for the NFL and its players’ association, also spoke out separately. He expressed concern about the compatibility and interaction of CBD with other drugs that players took.
Although the World Anti-Doping Agency now allows CBD, and the number of CBD brands, which make CBD products for athletes, increases, the NCAA still completely prohibits all “cannabinoids.” However, even this does not affect the growing popularity of CBD products, and some companies are already launching new lines explicitly aimed at athletes.
