CBD, the Endocannabinoid System & the Athletic Trainer

View Session
Overview

Abstract:
Cannabis used as medicine dates as far back as 2,700 years ago documented in Asia. Cannabis has been reported throughout history to treat ailments such as rheumatism, constipation, gout, edema and infectious wounds, to name a few. In 1611, hemp reached America via Jamestown settlers and was acknowledged as a plant-based drug and added to the United States Pharmacopoeia in 1850 only to be removed in 1941 and later moved into a Schedule I drug in 1970. In 1988, the CB1 receptor was discovered in the human body, opening the door to understanding the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis is utilized by the human body. The discovery of this receptor led to a new direction of research and study to uncover information regarding the system to which the CB1 receptor is a component, including how it is impacted by pharmacology and the effects this system has on other systems and the global person. In February 2022, the NCAA announced a new policy that would increase the threshold for THC from 35 nanograms per milliliter to 159 nanograms per milliliter. This session will provide useful content to athletic trainers who may be tasked with providing advice or care to subjects who seek to treat conditions with cannabinoids.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the components of the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
  • Explain the mechanisms by which cannabinoids interact with the ECS.
