Strict Liability

An anti-doping rule violation occurs whenever a prohibitedsubstance is found in an athlete’s body,

whether or not the athlete intentionally or unintentionally used a prohibited substance or was negligent or otherwise at fault.

cannabis don t get sidelined
Cannabis: Don’t Get Sidelined
  • The presence of cannabinoids or its metabolites in your body is an anti-doping rule violation.
  • Despite its classification as a specified substance, an anti-doping violation involving cannabis is still considered a first time anti-doping violation.
  • Cannabis can remain in your system over an extended period of time (longer than a month.)
  • Disturbing Trend for Athletes:
    • Cannabis can be laced with cocaine.
    • This typically leads to a two-year ban from competitive sport.

  • The CCES does not promote the use of supplements, yet recognizes that some athletes choose to use them. However, we acknowledge there is need to assist athletes in making informed decisions.
helping athletes minimize the risks
Helping Athletes Minimize the Risks
  • CCES partnership with NSF International
  • Program to minimize risk of inadvertent doping from prohibited substances in supplements.
  • Certification concentrates on the categories of stimulants, anabolic steroids, beta-2 agonists and masking agents.
  • Certified products are:
    • Labelled “NSF Certified For Sport”
    • Listed on the NSF website (
