While some athletes have come under fire for their cannabis use, some are being celebrated for their “openness”
Soccer star Megan Rapinoe recently sat down with the media to promote her sister’s CBD brand whose products she also includes in her training routine
CBD was removed from the WADA’s banned substances list in 2017, however, THC still remains.
Rapinoe’s sister relayed that she was often prescribed powerful opiates to help manage injuries she got as a professional soccer player.
But the fact that she couldn’t use natural remedies like cannabis, prompted her to create her CBD wellness brand for athletes.
Megan suggested that besides helping her physically, it also helps her mentally when she’s training.
She also said “We’re expected to perform on the biggest stages and highest levels, yet we can’t use all-natural products to help us recover. It’s not right, and these policies need to be changed to reflect where our culture is.”
