BIG3 Allows Players to Use CBD: A Breakthrough in Major Leagues

Published: 28/09/2018  -  By Jason Palmer

Many athletes have rejoiced after Basketball's BIG3 has become the first professional sports league that allows players to use CBD and CBD oil as part of the athlete's regimen and recovery kit.

The news was announced in June of this year. Many athletes in both professional and collegiate organizations are slowly accepting the idea of using cannabis because of their healing properties. In addition, some organizations are now studying how CBD oil can help their athletes.

Unlike other major leagues, like the National Football League and the National Basketball Association, we often hear that NHL is more lenient with the use of CBD products which include CBD oil. NHL is said to have more progressive marijuana policies in the sports world.

NHL was never that strict with cannabis use among members until NHLP executive director, Don Fehr discussed that they might come up with an informal rule about cannabis usage in the league in the future.

Seasoned NHL players in the past like Riley Cote mentioned that many of the pro hockey players use CBD not just for recreation but also for medical purposes. He believes that CBD is better when it comes to addressing chronic pains due to the rigorous activities in hockey.  CBD and CBD oil has better and longer lasting effects in reducing pain and swelling.

Hockey is said to be one of the most strenuous physical sports that requires players to be in their best physical conditions. Major leagues have their own rules in terms of cannabis used and when it should be considered a violation.

Recently, these rules have been slowly loosened due to the medical relief that is brought on by the use of CBD and CBD oil. Many are hoping that with the new discovery of the medical benefits of cannabis, future regulations will be defined and be supportive of CBD use.

Collegiate leagues like NCAA are now slowly becoming more understanding of cannabis use among players. Four years ago, NCAA had implemented a severe punishment for players who were caught using marijuana. However, in late 2017, Rutgers reduced penalties for athletes who were positive for marijuana but continues to put more weight on performance-enhancing drugs as well as harder drugs like cocaine.

Years ago, many players in both collegiate and professional leagues relied on anti-inflammatory medicines and opioids to help ease swelling and chronic pains. Former NFL player Calvin Johnson once said that trainers and team doctors used to give these oral medications as if they were candy. Constant intake of these medicines, however, can cause internal bleeding or, worse, heart attacks.

Former professional and collegiate athletes are in full support of the use of CBD in major and collegiate leagues. They believe that CBD is healthier compared to pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications that they used to take in the past.

Opinion-wise, CBD and CBD oil can be a perfect addition to the players' regimen and recovery kit. However, not everyone is open to the idea of CBD in major and collegiate leagues. But with the announcement of BIG3, maybe people would become more open to the health benefits that can be derived from CBD and CBD oil.
