How Biotech Companies Are Helping Athletes

Biotechnology brings together science and nature to create innovative products from natural sources. Biotech companies are introducing new medicinal products into the market that are effective and safe to use with no adverse effects on the human body. These products range from cosmetic to pharmaceutical and the best thing about them is that they are natural and promote a healthy lifestyle. Recently, The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) – initiated by the International Olympic Committee – removed hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of prohibited substances for 2018. This is a milestone for the CBD industry as it means that athletes can use such products for treatment and well-being.

One of the companies that is changing the game in the CBD industry is Iso-Sport, which makes naturally-derived CBD products for athletes.  These products are free from harmful additives and have been developed by a team of athletes who started working on this project nine years ago. The company has come a long way by creating non-toxic and non-addictive CBD products ranging from creams, balms, and capsules to relieve pain and enhance performance. All these products contain Eco-certified organic cannabis oil, which can help in the treatment of inflammation, muscle pain, anxiety and depression without the intoxicating effects of typical cannabis.

Iso-Sport recently sponsored the Arnold Sports Festival 2018 in Columbus, Ohio and is expected to see growth in its clients due to the removal of the ban on hemp-derived CBD. Super Bowl champion, Marvin Washington, is the official spokesperson for the company and has been promoting the benefits of Iso-Sport products. He uses Iso-Sport products himself after having a hard time with opioids and has also been trying to get NFL to change its policies toward CBD due to its benefits.
