With its increasing acceptance in society and continuing legalization, cannabis is also penetrating more and more into the world of professional and amateur sport. Although it is a banned form of doping in many disciplines, in practice, it has actually been shown to be an effective form of medicine, which helps our bodies to regenerate after demanding performances.

In the United States especially, there has recently been an increasingly heated discussion between active and retired players of the two most popular American sports – basketball players from NBA and football players from NFL – and officials about whether cannabis should be removed from the list of banned substances and its use allowed for the treatment of most prevalent and often long-term injuries or post-operational complications of players in states where medical cannabis is legal.

¿Cómo hacer que el viejo y el nuevo mundo cannábico convivan en paz?
by Laura Rueda on 05/12/18
At present, the cannabis world reality is divided in two.
