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.
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.
