This webinar will address the current landscape of marijuana legalization and the impacts on public health and the integrity of sport. There is a clear gap between current scientific evidence and public perceptions around cannabis use, including the rapid growth and popularity of the CBD (cannabidiol) marketplace. Sport practitioners seeking greater understanding of the health, social, and legal impacts of marijuana and cannabinoids will benefit from this education session.


At the end of this presentation, attendees will be better able to:

  1. Summarize the current research and use of cannabis-derived products and their relevance to sport.
  2. Identify the physiological and psychological effects of cannabis use.
  3. Discuss THC as a banned substance and whether or not it is more performance-enhancing or dangerous.
  4. Rate the current status of THC/marijuana and CBD as “medicine”.

Target Audience: ATs, RDs, CSCS, and other sports medicine or athlete support staff
