CBD- Help or Hype? With Joanna Zeiger PhD and CEO of Canna Research Group and CTS Coach Corrine Malcolm⎮KoopCast Episode 11
Coach Jason Koop speaks with Joanna Zeiger, CEO of Canna Research Group and CTS Coach Corrine Malcolm about all things cannabis for endurance athletes.

Our interview this week is with former pro triathlete, Olympian, PhD and author Joanna Zeiger. Joanna is legend in the triathlon world. After a 4th place in the Sydney Olympics, she went on to be a top 5 at the Ironman World Championship in Kona and then ascend to win the IM 70.3 World Championship in 2008. She has an academic research resume to match, which includes a recent sturdy on "Age related differences in cannabis use in a survey of adult athletes." State and Federal laws and social norms have shifted the landscape of cannabis in the last decade. No doubt we have all seen the CBD market begin to take off in endurance sports. I've always been curious how much traction CBD would get, but with USADA removing it from the banned substance list in 2018 there seems to have been an acceleration of adoption. We have so many questions on this topic. Joanna has survey findings that will shed light on this for us. We are excited to learn from her after a few short announcements. Thanks to last week's guest pro triathlete Sarah Crowley and her analysis of the 2019 season, her win at Ironman Arizona and outlook for 2020.

She attended Brown University where she held the school records in the 500-yard (460 m) freestyle, 1,000-yard (910 m) freestyle, and 1,650-yard (1,510 m) freestyle which she set in 1991. Competitive running and cycling were added to her repertoire in 1992 and 1993. Joanna was the 1998 triathlon rookie of the year, took 4th in the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and a top 5 Kona pro the same year. Joanna received her PhD from The Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2001. She pursued her professional athletic career by going on to win the IRONMAN 70.3 world championship 2008. While defending her title in 2009 Joanna suffered a career ending bike crash. Joanna is the author of "The Champion Mindset", founder of "Training Away Chronic Pain", and the architect of the Athlete PEACE Survey. We are going to talk about all of this, but let's start by going back in time a bit. MHE Question: Let's start with growing up as a swimmer. Did you always have the champion mindset or was that something you had to learn? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: Why Brown University and what career ambitions did you have as a freshman in college? What did you declare as your major? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: You held Brown University school records in the 500 freestyle, 1,000 freestyle, and 1,650-yard freestyle in 1991. You graduate 1992 and would later be inducted into the Brown Hall of Fame in 2002. You found your way to triathlon and by 1998 you are the rookie of the year and then qualify for the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney. How did that happen? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: Around this same timeframe, you receive your PhD from The Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2001. What did you receive your PhD in and how did you balance these big things at the same time? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: Fast forward to 2008 when you win the IRONMAN 70.3 world championship and then defend your title in 2009. There you suffered a career ending bike crash. Take us through that experience in 2009 and the injuries that your sustained. Joanna Answer: MHE Question: In addition to authoring your book "The Champion's Mindset", you have continued research and have become a thought leader on how to use aerobic exercised and strength training to help alleviate chronic pain. How did this lead to the Athlete PEACE Survey, and what were you and your colleagues hoping to achieve? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: How did you go about distributing the survey? How many people participated? And how long did it take to analyze the results? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: Can you give us some examples of the types of questions that were asked and what were the some of the key results of the study? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: How do each CBD and THC work in our bodies? How Cannabinoids interact with The Endocannabinoid System and what combinations have the greatest efficacy? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: Your study asked about the subjective benefits compared to the subjective adverse effects. What were the subjective benefits? What were the adverse affects? Are they different for CBD and THC? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: What were the age groups you analyzed and what were the key findings that differentiated younger athletes vs. older athletes? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: The study looked at both CBD and THC use. Can we take a few minutes to talk about the different cannabis plants and how CBD and THC are derived? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: THC is a banned substance and is a threshold drug What does that mean and if an athlete is using it, what are the threshold that they need to be aware of? Is that a threshold that you can cross if you have taken 12 hours or more prior to testing? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: CBD is off the USADA banned substance list. THC is not. Can you speculate on the impact of USADA's decision and what that has meant for the CBD industry? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: How should athletes, coaches and health providers leverage the data from this study to help athlete health, performance and recovery? Joanna Answer: MHE Question: The governing body of USA Triathlon has a CBD company as a partner. How far have we shifted as a social, health and competitive issue for that to occur? Joanna Answer: Audience Questions: Sponsor - Riplaces: Our post interview discussion is sponsored by Riplaces.
