UFC 202’s main event was one of the most exciting fights in UFC history. It was an epic battle between two great warriors (Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor) that kept fans on their feet not knowing who was going to win. During the post fight press conference, the beat up Nate was seen smoking CBD from a vape pen.
“It helps with the healing process and inflammation and things like that, so you want to get these for before or after the fights in training. It’ll make your life a better place” Diaz said.
His rebellious and fearless attitude has educated the mass public on the medical benefits of marijuana from a sports medicine perspective. Athletes are always going battling muscle, soft tissues, and joint issues which can severely impair performance, and this is one more treatment that can be added to anyone’s list of go to recovery drugs.
Twitter blew up as fans were beguiled and supportive of the Stockton bad ass. See some of the tweets at Sports Joe.
