It would appear that Diego Sanchez was not quite up to date on the latest banned substances for UFC competitors.
The UFC’s anti-doping policy enforcers, USADA, recently revealed that cannabidiol (CBD) will be removed from the banned list of substances for UFC fighters in 2018. The substance is an active cannabinoid found in marijuana. Though the substance does not mimic the intoxication effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
While CBD will be removed from the banned list for 2018, the substance is still banned for the rest of the year. Sanchez recently took to twitter to offer MMA veteran Carlos Condit a bottle of the substance.
@CarlosCondit I have a bottle of CBD for you

However, UFC’s Cub Swanson was quick to jump in to the conversation and set things straight. The fighter said, “Wait it’s not legal for us (USADA) till next year.”
