It is no secret that there is an intersection between marijuana, sports, & professional athletes, albeit complicated & often controversial. In one study conducted with elite & university athletes, approximately 1 out of every 4 athletes reported using cannabis within the past year.
A hot topic in 2021, the National Basketball Players Association announced they would abstain from testing players for marijuana use for yet another season. Yet in sharp contrast, American sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson was suspended from the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for THC.
Another survey, polling 1,274 adult athletes who participated in triathlons, running, & cycling, found that participants reported positive effects such as improved sleep quality by 71.4% & pain reduction by 68.8%. With intense training sessions & potential injuries such as concussions abundant in professional sports, the link between pain management & marijuana use is notable.
Marijuana Doctor is proud to take part in rebranding the future of sports & medicine, through sponsoring a private event in Miami for professional athletes, medical professionals, & cannabis industry personnel. Cannabis is increasingly being used for medicinal purposes, & we hope that sports should not have to be left out of that equation.
