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 :
Cannabidiol as an Emergent Therapeutic Strategy for Lessening the Impact of Inflammation on Oxidative Stress
World Health Organization: Evaluation of Cannabidiol
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:
