In a clear sign of how far cannabis has come, UFC fighter Nate Diaz decided to smoke up during his post-fight news conference. Ultimately losing to Conor McGregor, he still managed to grab several headlines as he powers through injuries sustained during the fight.
After a while, one of the reporters inquired as to what Diaz was puffing on; “What exactly are you, just for the record, smoking?”, he said.
“CBD. It helps with [the] healing process and inflammation and stuff like that so you wanna get these for before or after the fight [or] training,” Diaz replied.
Clearly Nate is well informed about the healing capabilities of CBD. We only wonder what his preferred strain is.
