There is much talk today around the potential health benefits of CBD and cannabis for athletes, high-achievers, and general wellness. Cannabidiol (aka CBD) is widely available in consumer products that profess to have a number of health benefits: from relaxation to muscle recovery, chronic pain treatment to gut health. Many athletes seeking holistic remedies for aches and pains from the immense stress they put on their bodies are turning to CBD and away from dangerous pain meds and other pharmaceuticals. According to researchers, the power of CBD and cannabinoids is promising, but clinical studies have yet to catch up to CBD’s current uses. The objective of this panel is to invite a diversity of informed perspectives on the topic.
“We know that there are positive benefits to stress management, pain relief, and that genre of benefits,” said Conor Murphy, Chief Science Officer at The Flow Research Collective. “That’s one of the reasons working in this research field is so fascinating because we’re starting to see what domains does this actually apply to and where does it not, and bringing that rigor there is something I’m very personally motivated about.”
