We had so much fun doing research for this podcast! At Compeat we are very big on allowing athletes to be informed and drive the conversation. We believe this allows for a very open space in which athletes are informed of the positives and negatives of taking certain substances... and CBD is no different!
CBD is a chemical compound found in cannabis. it can be taken as a supplement in a variety of ways and may elicit multiple health benefits in the user.
There were lots of people interested and lots of questions coming through for this one so we hope you get a lot out of it!
The areas we discuss in this podcast are:
What it is?
Can it help the athlete?
What are the side effects?
Is it legal?
Should you take it?
If you're not quite sure whether CBD is for you, why not fill out our Free Preliminary Assessment. Simply tell us what you're going through and what you feel is holding you back to receive a personalised response from one of our dietitians.
