Cannabis in Exercise Science and Performance
On Tuesday April 5 IHN hosted a 1 hour webinar with Dr. Shawn Meirovici ND when he discussed the use of cannabis in sport! Once again, during the most recent summer Olympic games, the world witnessed controversy surrounding the use of cannabis as a performance enhancing drug. Robin Williams is famously quoted as saying “the only way marijuana is performance enhancing is if there is a big Hershey bar at the finish line”. Cannabis has been banned by the world anti-doping agency since 2004 but the question of it being a real performance enhancer is still debated. In this webinar we look at the science surrounding cannabis in sport.
You Will Learn:
• The history of cannabis in sport
• Is cannabis associated with lack of motivation and weight gain?
• Cannabis use among athletes
• Arguments for and against cannabis as a performance enhancing drug
• Cannabis in sport recovery
Those in attendance received a one-time 20% discount on initial consultations for new patients or follow-up consultations for existing patients. Only LIVE attendees who are with us until the end of Shawn’s presentation were eligible for the offer.
