Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Tri podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Our interview this week is with former pro triathlete, Olympian, PhD and author Joanna Zeiger. Joanna has been a previous guest where we spoke to her about her book The Champion's Mindset and her coaching project Training Away Chronic Pain.  After years of pain management and university research, Joanna shares her latest research on cannabis and endurance athletes. We thought it would be good to get the perspective of an athlete and researcher of this caliber.

This topic is a bit of a challenge for me for similar reasons that Joanna gave: it's potentially controversial, there's some reputation risk, but I genuinely believe in what CBD can do to help with inflammation, recovery, anxiety and athletic performance.  Joanna mentioned the details about the survey.  We've included the link on the headline on the home page of MHE and it's also in the show notes at Athlete PEACE Survey - https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4539059/The-Athlete-PEACE-Survey

 

 It's also a topic that is attracting lots of attention, so I'm glad we are pulling together some information and education.  We've gathered some articles for you and we've put them on the MHE Resources page in the Wellness section :

https://ufc.usada.org/cbd-in-2018-four-questions-answered/

  • Regardless of individual state laws regarding legalized medical and recreational marijuana or the anti-doping rules of sport, all cannabinoids, including CBD, remain illegal as Schedule I substances under the U.S. Federal Controlled Substances Act.
  • THC, which is the psychoactive component of marijuana, cannabis, and hashish, is subject to a urinary reporting threshold of 150 ng/mL.
  • Respiratory conditions, such as lung cysts, chronic bronchitis, and lung cancer, have all been linked to the inhalation of marijuana smoke.

https://www.fundacion-canna.es/en/full-spectrum-cannabis-extracts-vs-cbd-isolate

  • In hemp THC is a minor constituent and appears only in trace amounts under 0.3% by dry weight, as required by the U.S. government for hemp products. THC mimics the action of anandamide, a neurotransmitter naturally produced in the human body, and binds to CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system found mostly in the brain. The extremely low levels of THC in hemp make hemp oil non-psychoactive and safe for all ages to use.

Cannabidiol as an Emergent Therapeutic Strategy for Lessening the Impact of Inflammation on Oxidative Stress

  • National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine
  • This review discusses recent studies suggesting that cannabidiol may have utility in treating a number of human diseases and disorders now known to involve activation of the immune system and associated oxidative stress, as a contributor to their etiology and progression. These include rheumatoid arthritis, types I and II diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, hypertension, the metabolic syndrome, ischemia-reperfusion injury, depression, and neuropathic pain.

World Health Organization: Evaluation of Cannabidiol

  • This report has been drafted under the responsibility of the WHO Secretariat, Department of Essential Medicines and Health Products, Teams of Innovation, Access and Use and Policy, Governance and Knowledge.
  • CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials, with

one pure CBD product (Epidiolex®) currently in Phase III trials. There is also preliminaryevidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions. 

Thank you Joanna for taking time to share your information with us.  

I did check a couple of relative facts about iKOR, which is the hemp extract CBD that I take and thought I'd share some of those for context:

  1. iKOR IS as full spectrum product and is not pure CBD.
  2. iKOR receives reports from their manufacturing partner for each batch of product that they receive.  Every batch so far has come back at zero % THC.
