Hulk Hogan is launching his own CBD, THC, and mushroom business with help from Carma HoldCo, the company that produces Mike Tyson’s “Tyson Ranch 2.0” and Ric Flair’s “Ric Flair Drip” premium cannabis lines.
While there is no official launch date, Chad Bronstein, Carma HoldCo’s president, said the brand will include not only THC but CBD and “functional mushrooms.”
In a new interview with TMZ Sports, Hogan detailed how CBD has helped him recover from his numerous surgeries in a way prescription painkillers could never compete with.
“I always joke about I didn’t get the memo that this stuff was ‘fake’ and after the 10 back surgery and two knees and two hips, it’s just a situation of you do get hurt out there all the time,” Hulk Hogan said. “I feel better than I’ve ever felt at 69 years old, I feel like I’m 25 again.”
“In the last 10 years I’ve had 28 surgeries—it’s just been insane,” Hogan explained. “And from everything I’ve been through, you know, the pain and the inflammation and the prescriptions that doctors would give you, that whole training, prayers, and eat your vitamins kind of got rattled a little bit.”
“So there was a way to slow walk things back to get back to center, to get back to health again,” he continued. “And when I saw what Ric and Mike were doing, I instantly wanted to get on the team, because to use CBD for energy, for sleep, for fitness, it just made sense.”
Hogan explained how he got to a point where prescription drugs just weren’t working for him anymore.
“So, as I moved away from that and got into the CBD world, it really changed the game from my sleep to the inflammation, the way my wrists and my joints hurt, across the board, it helped me with my health,” Hogan recalled.
