If the athlete is unable to find a medication on the relevant database they have searched do not take the medication, please contact Sport Ireland on firstname.lastname@example.org
Sport Ireland also draw your attention to Cannabidiol (CBD) products. While CBD is permitted all other cannabinoids are Prohibited in Competition. The risk with CBD products is that it is impossible to only extract CBD from the cannabis or hemp plant therefore CBD products contain varying quantities of other cannabinoids that are prohibited in competition. Sport Irelands advice to athletes is to avoid products containing CBD.
Please see infographic below.
Sport Ireland continue to advise athletes to be vigilant in relation to supplement use. Recent cases internationally have seen Ligandrol (anabolic agent) and Octodrine (stimulant) found in various supplement products resulting in athletes facing a lengthy ban from sport.
