While there is little, the use of e-liquid at the CBD by UFC fighters has been controversial, today the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) would be ready to license the substance.
The news comes straight from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) which updated the list of banned substances. While the debate was launched some time ago, the CBD would no longer be a doping substance.
Le cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the active cannabinoid 85 cannabis, and the main argument of the debate around the medical use of marijuana. While THC is mostly studied in its side effects, it seems that the CBD has none, and that the medical evidence of its benefits accumulate.
It should be known that currently the e-liquid market in the CBD is literally exploding in the United States but also in Europe. We recently learned that the LFEL (French laboratory of e-liquid) was also working on the subject.
Regarding the World Anti-Doping Agency, she said: " Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited. If synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic; one that is extracted from cannabis plants may contain varying concentrations of THC. For its part, THC remains a prohibited substance ".
It was Nate Diaz, the former UFC lightweight title challenger, who got noticed spraying e-liquid at the CBD appearing at a press conference with an e-cigarette in his hand.
« It's CBD Said Diaz " This helps the healing process and helps reduce inflammation.". For this behavior, Nate Diaz had received a public warning From USADA. The Stockton fighter would have had to face a suspension for being declared positive at the CBD following his fight with McGregor at the UFC.
Because the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) follows the standards set by the Anti-Doping Agency, this means that all UFC fighters will be allowed to use CBD from the 1 January 2018er.
