Hemp Oil Helps MMA Fighters Recover From Head Injuries

Kickboxing Boxers Mma Muay Thai Fighters Combative

An interesting article in Mixed Martial Arts News notes that one of the benefits of taking hemp oil for MMA fighters is that it can give them a clearer head.

“The issue of Traumatic Brain Injury is something that many fighters struggle with and that can lead to bleeding and long-term brain injuries, and brain damage. This is something that athletic commissions and referees take very seriously and that they want to try to prevent,” The nutrients in hemp oil help the body to repair itself, and while they are not going to prevent concussions, they give the body a fighting chance of recovering from the day to day knocks that combatants face.”

Prior to 2018, CBD and its related products were considered prohibited substances by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), however this not the case after an announcement by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on January 1, 2018. According to the supporting documents released by WADA, CBD is no longer placed under its prohibited list, and so will also be permitted under the UFC Anti-Doping Program.
