NCAA Raises THC Limits for Student-Athletes

The NCAA is relaxing the THC penalty threshold for student-athletes from 35 to 150 nanograms per milliliter of blood. The new limits align with the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which governs college athletics in the U.S., has changed its cannabinoid policies for student-athletes. In a press release last Friday, the Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports (CSMAS) said they were raising the THC threshold from 35 to 150 nanograms per milliliter of blood.

The cannabinoid limits are now aligned with those of the World Anti-Doping Agency and the changes are immediate and backdated to cover tests administered in fall 2021 and later, the press release says.

“Marijuana is not considered a performance- enhancing substance, but it remains important for member schools to engage student-athletes regarding substance use prevention and provide management and support when appropriate.”

This is fantastic

The COVID-19 pandemic may have ruined the College experience. However, NCAA athletes can look forward to being able to smoke a little more weed to cope with all the madness in the world. The sports world in general is starting to realize that cannabis is not the boogie man it was made out to be. The NFL is testing CBD and the World Doping Agency understands that cannabis does not improve your sporting performance abilities.
