In the theatrical world of wrestling, where physical prowess is celebrated and tenacity rewarded, one titan has often reigned supreme, riding the waves of fame and respect: Terry Eugene Bollea, better known worldwide as by Hulk Hogan. Behind his journey, however, lies a harsh reality: countless injuries and 28 surgeries over the past decade.
Hulk Hogan’s Little Secret
“I had ten operations on my back, kidneys and two hips. It’s a situation where you’re constantly hurt,” admits Hogan. Despite these enormous challenges, his determination never wavered. In fact, he says, “I feel better than I’ve ever felt at 69. I feel like I’m 25 again. »
What is the secret to Hulk Hogan’s regained health and vitality? The answer lies in two cannabis compounds: THC and CBD.
These cannabinoids have become Hogan’s new allies on his journey to health and wellness. Prior to this transformation, Hogan was at constant war with chronic pain. His solace, though temporary and inadequate, consisted of taking prescription medications such as Tylenol, Advil and Aleve. These drugs ultimately proved ineffective, and Hogan sought longer-lasting relief.
“CBD and THC have really changed my sleep, the inflammation, the way my wrists and joints hurt. All in all, it helped me get my health back,” reveals Hulk Hogan.
Hulk Hogan’s experience led him to launch a brand of THC and CBD
Hulk Hogan’s experience with THC and CBD was so profound that he decided to take it a step further. Taking inspiration from other icons such as Mike Tyson and Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan decided to launch his own brand of cannabis products.
This initiative, undertaken in partnership with Carma HoldCo (the company responsible for “Tyson Ranch 2.0” and “Ric Flair Drip”), continues its commitment to promote healthier and safer alternatives to traditional drugs dispensed on prescription.
“I wanted to be on the team right away because CBD can be used for energy, sleep, fitness,” Hogan says. “It’s a logical extension of what I was already doing (taking medicine), but it’s a safer way to approach the problem rather than approaching it as a catch-all, ie. say with the typical drugs prescribed by doctors. It no longer made sense. »
Chad Bronstein, President of Carma HoldCo, shares Mr. Hogan’s enthusiasm for their joint venture. Not only do they intend to offer THC and CBD products, but they also plan to introduce an exciting line of functional mushrooms and other health and wellness products.
“Their stories [celles de Hogan, Tyson et Flair] partly explain why people are more open to using these specific products,” says Bronstein.
With this new venture, Hogan hopes to change the discourse around CBD and THC, not only for himself, but also for others in the wrestling industry and beyond: “I think that’s something which would help WWE, wrestlers right now, especially with the intensity of their work. They tear their bodies apart and work very hard. So I’m really looking forward to it,” Hogan reveals.
