This past Saturday, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz met at UFC 202 for their long awaited rematch. McGregor met expectations with a spectacle of trash talking and in the ring antics. Though Diaz fought hard for five rounds, McGregor ultimately beat him on points. Through a swollen mouth, Diaz puffed on a vaporizer full of cannabidiol. His healing began immediately.
CBD is stronger than McGregor?
Diaz apparently is tuned into the healing powers of CBD and isn’t afraid to show it. In his post-UFC 202 interview, he proudly puffed on a vape pen full of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid abundantly produced by the cannabis plant.
Research has shown that CBD is an excellent anti-inflammatory and helps people recover from physical stresses. Many NFL athletes are using CBD to help them heal from the mental and physical stresses of their jobs. UFC fighters seem to be taking a liking to CBD as well.
What exactly are you smoking?
As Diaz sat in front of cameras and reporters, he proudly took pulls from his vape pen. His openness about using a cannabis product on camera sparked a few questions from curious reporters.
To be clear, Nate, what exactly are you smoking? – Unknown reporter
This is TRU, the TRU (Cannabis) company. This is CBD it helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that. You want to get these before and after the fight to make your life a better place. CBD oil! – Nate Diaz
The future of healing
It is promising to see athletes, who are at the top of their game, coming out in support for alternative medicines. CBD is non-addictive, non-toxic, and non-psychoactive. With anti-inflammatory properties as well as valuable vitamins and minerals, CBD seems like an awesome alternative to addictive painkillers.
Don’t just take my word for it, watch Diaz’ enjoy the healing powers of CBD in the video below.
