Diaz clarifies the joint was non-psychoactive
Nate Diaz was quick to announce that the joint was made up of non-psychoactive cannabis. The cannabis component thus used was only for medical purposes.
That was also a cool promotion of his company Game Up CBD who make up such cannabis. Nate Diaz launched the company a couple of years back with his brother Nick.
“I gotta smoke the (THC) weed after the fight,” he told media members during the post-workout scrum. “So I had to smoke Game Up CBD.”
“CBD by Game Up Nutrition. It’s good for you.”
The company Game Up CBD was cleared of WADA banned substances list last year. Likewise the US Anti Doping Agency (USADA) also cleared it of their list. So at UFC 241 and further on, it’s more clear that Game Up CBD is safe to smoke.
