NFL requesting research on CBD for pain management

The National Football League and its players’ union have requested industry research on CBD and other cannabinoids for pain management.

The NFL says it is looking for information about “alternatives to opioids in routine pain management.” The request mentions CBD but is open to research on other cannabinoids.

The request issued Wednesday also mentions research on the “impact of cannabis or cannabinoids on athletic performance.”

The memo comes five months after the NFL Players Association updated its policy to discourage athletes from endorsing products that contain CBD or other cannabinoids.

The research is requested by March 31. The NFL asks submitters to label proprietary information and that no compensation is offered for the information.

    There are many real life people with real life experiences to share. This is the only research available on a plant forbidden since the 1930’s. There are many Texas folks willing to speak on the plants behalf.

    can’t believe we are still people arguing over the benefit of cannabis! But we’re in a new age of a new reality !
    That we still have people that will follow and Fund a lying loser is definitely a sign of some sorta mental sickness. It must be noted that those with such a belief may not be allowed on juries as their thinking ability has beed compromised . But our system’s got worse than covid, is got insecurity fortified by greed / power. When this country fights for and gets equity we will be a healthy nation; anything short o that is sick .
