The MLB made the announcement Thursday in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Players Association. The organizations said in a statement that “Natural Cannabinoids (e.g. THC, CBD, and Marijuana) will be removed from the Program’s list of Drugs of Abuse.”

An incredible announcement by the Major League Baseball (MLB) and Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), has put a stake in the ground on the acceptance of marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) products for the industry.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has delisted CBD from their banned substance list back in 2018.

All of these changes in perception about the effectiveness of CBD on the body, especially in professional athletes, absolutely puts credence on the power of CBD.

The reason for the change of stance on the perception of CBD, is the overuse of prescription pain relievers amongst the players.

In July of 2019, Tyler Skaggs, a professional pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, was found in his hotel room dead from drug overdose.  The autopsy found traces of fentanyl and oxycodone in his system.

His death and increased reports of athletes under prescribed pain relievers is starting to alarm MLB owners and management.  Everyone from top to bottom wants nothing but healthy players.  To ensure there’s less prescribed pain relievers, the MLB has opened the doors to alternative methods.

This new policy goes into effect in the 2020 training season.  This new rule will help so many players recover quicker and more naturally.

The power of healing from CBD will continue to make headlines.
