    Cannabidiol is also known as CBD and is a non-psychoactive compound extracted from cannabis. Until recently, it has been on the WADA banned list due to the belief that cannabis can increase focus and risk-taking, decrease anxiety and tension and therefore result in a better performance under pressure. WADA have now removed CBD from the banned list. How should we describe substances that have potential performance benefits but are not banned? Is it legal doping?

    In episode 41 of the GTN Show we also discuss:
    – The Ironman Foundation
    – The introduction of Ironman Ireland
    – Leanda Cave’s retirement
    – Cheese rolling
    – And much more!

    As well as the latest in all things triathlon, we have our usual segments such as the #GTNPainCave, #GTNTRIBE and CAPtion competition.
