BSCG WELCOMES PURE SPORT CBD TO ITS BSCG CERTIFIED CBD PROGRAMJanuary 13, 2020
Pure Sport CBD Was Brought to Market by Professional Athletes
BSCG (Banned Substances Control Group), a leading international third-party certification and testing provider, welcomes Pure Sport CBD, a product developed and marketed by professional athletes, to its BSCG Certified CBD™ program.
“We are delighted to welcome Pure Sport CBD to our BSCG Certified CBD™ program,” said Oliver Catlin, BSCG President. “Our rigorous laboratory testing has shown Pure Sport CBD to have met or exceeded the Olympic and professional standards we’ve put into place to help athletes and consumers navigate the CBD market, and, as a result, we have officially certified this CBD product.”
The BSCG Certified CBD™ program is rigorous and comprehensive. “Our program aims to address a range of consumer concerns relating to hemp and CBD products,” Catlin said, “including whether athletes or other consumers could test positive in a drug test for using a given product, whether the product tests below a 0.3% THC limit and meet claims for CBD content, and whether banned substances in sport or other drugs or synthetic cannabinoids may be present. We also examine whether a product has been manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and is free of contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents.”
Grayson Hart, a former professional Scottish rugby player and one of the two co-founders of Pure Sport CBD, said, “We’re big believers in third-party testing and are proud our Pure Sport CBD has received this important seal of quality from BSCG. The Catlin name has long been gold in the sports anti-doping community.”
He added, “We developed this product precisely because we found many CBD brands contained small traces of THC, which is still a banned substance in sport. We wanted a CBD product that had no THC–and a way to prove it. We’re grateful to be able to deliver a safe product of the highest quality for our athlete consumers that they will be able to use with peace of mind.”
Pure Sport CBD was set up when two friends and teammates, both working as professional rugby players discovered the benefits of CBD oil. The players found that not all brands were transparent about what was in their CBD products, so they made it their mission to find the safest, highest quality CBD that both professional athletes like themselves and consumers could feel comfortable using.
BSCG was founded in 2004 by world-renowned Olympic drug-testing pioneer Don Catlin, MD, and his son, executive Oliver Catlin, to offer reputable manufacturers, brands, and distributors a third-party program to distinguish their products as free of banned substance concerns and to provide consumers and competitors assurance that what they’re consuming will not endanger their health or lead to a doping violation. Today BSCG’s certification program options include BSCG Certified Drug Free®, BSCG Certified Quality™ and BSCG Certified GMP™, as well as BSCG Certified CBD™. BSCG also works directly with athletes, in its Athlete Assurance program, to test products they are interested in but are unsure of.
All certified batches of Pure Sport CBD can be found in BSCG’s online database.
