CBD in Sport
Here at Pureis® lots of our friends lead active lifestyles, with many who have spent their lives dedicated to sports, like Sir AP McCoy OBE who was 20-time Champion Jockey, and Mike Tindall MBE rugby legend having 75 caps for England and played on England’s winning world cup team in 2003.
Although CBD (cannabidiol) is World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) permitted, there is still a lot of hesitancy in the sports world to embrace CBD. We completely understand the challenges these sporting institutions face, only recently have we seen the results of traces of prohibited cannabinoids like THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) destroy Olympians dreams of competing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

has focused upon Vitamin D, muscle damage and repair, with his most
