Former NFL running back and marijuana enthusiast, Ricky Williams, has launched his own marijuana brand.  

Marijuana is nothing new to the former athlete, who failed a couple of drug tests during his playing days.  Trying to sell its health benefits is new.

Via Sun-Sentinel:

The line called Real Wellness by Ricky Williams includes six products sold as salves, vape cartridges and tonics that contain “hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or a mix of both,” according to the company. They also contain extracts such as arnica, lavender and turmeric.

Williams said it’s a dream come true to merge his interest in healing and plant medicines into a business.

“I am known as a professional football player,” Williams said in a phone interview Monday. “In the last 14 years, I have been educating myself and training as a health care practitioner.”

A dream come true indeed Ricky.  What better way to spend that NFL money than to invest it in a marijuana business?  I can’t think of any.
