Exploring the healthy side of cannabis

You may have noticed a lot of talk lately in mainstream news about weed’s possible health benefits.

References have ranged from the controversy over barring American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson from competing in the Olympic Games for pot in her system, to other elite athletes revealing their use of cannabis products, including Olympic gold medalist Megan Rapinoe, who incorporates CBD into her soccer training routine and promotes her sister’s CBD brand.
