World Anti-Doping Agency Removes CBD from Banned List

February 21, 2018

Cleared by the WADA

As of 2018, hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) has been set free by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

WADA regulates and restricts certain substances for athletes around the world who compete in sports organizations. Effective January 1st, 2018, CBD was removed from the list of WADA banned substances.

Cannabidiol Removed from the List

Starting in 2018, cannabidiol (i.e. CBD oil) is no longer prohibited under the S8 Cannabinoids category. Synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic; however, cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance.

Synthetic cannabinoids, e.g. Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabimimetics, continue to be prohibited.

–USADA is one of more than 660 signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code, which was created to harmonize anti-doping rules and regulations globally.

Big Win for CBD

This is an enormous win for CBD, a cannabis extract that does not get you “high”. Because CBD can be isolated, the intoxicating THC molecule of marijuana can be entirely removed. The CBD molecule, by itself, contains healing properties that provide relief for a number of issues, such as pain, soreness, stiffness, and performance anxiety.  

CBD is Acceptable for Athletes

With the new acceptable status of CBD, an athlete can compete in an Olympics event with a system full of CBD, and find themselves perfectly within bounds. We look forward to seeing the future performances from stellar athletes, now that CBD can be part of the equation.  

Shop owners everywhere are catching the wave, and providing wonderful CBD products to their customers.

Isolate CBD has brushed aside the stigma normally associated with this family of plants. It’s rightly recognized, by now, as a health-promoting daily staple.

Hemplucid will be providing Isoterp CBD

Hemplucid stands behind the synergistic qualities of utilizing the whole hemp plant in its products. However, with this exciting turn of events, we will now be producing a Hemplucid family line that has isolated CBD with selected terpenes added back in. This will insure that athletes can utilize our new product line that wil be free from trace amounts of THC.

We would like to introduce you to Kalki, our Sport-Approved CBD line. Kalki should be used with extreme confidence.
