TORONTO Wolfpack players will be given a high ride when they are treated by a product closely linked with CANNABIS!
The Canadian side has become the first professional sports team to launch a range of cannabidiol (CBD)-based products, or in other words, weed without the high.
And ambitious owner David Argyle confirmed Wolfpack stars will have the Rugby Strength products applied to ease any aches and pains.
For despite the drugs connotation, they are not on any banned substance list.
He said: “They will be in the suite of options that our medical staff have for our players.
“There’s no issue at all with any of them. They’re not on any banned list by WADA or international drug testing bodies.
“They’re all entirely safe for players to use as there’s none of the THC compound in them, which is the psycho-active substance in cannabis.
“The substance, which comes from the hemp plant, has many benefits for pain management or any auto-immune issues. Medical research has demonstrated that CBD products have positive effects.”
Championship leaders Wolfpack will inject a portion of the profits from the sale of Rugby Strength into the development of young players.
And Argyle, who confirmed he hopes to land union star Sonny Bill Williams if they are promoted to Super League, added: “It’s really exciting, this is the next step for the Wolfpack.”
