University of Michigan Webinar: The Use of Cannabis for Athlete Health and Performance

Join the Exercise & Sport Science Initiative (ESSI) for a seminar focused on the use of cannabis for athlete health and performance. Experts will discuss how cannabis is currently regulated in sports; why medical cannabis has been proposed for use in treating chronic and acute pain, as opposed to other treatment strategies; how CBD and THC affect mental and physical health and athletic performance, both positively and negatively; the molecular mechanisms of how CBD and THC work; how THC and CBD get metabolized differently depending on how they are administered (e.g., topical, oral, or inhalation); and where the future is headed in terms of the use of medical cannabis in elite sports.
