Hulk Hogan is getting into the CBD business.
Per TMZ Sports, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is launching his own THC and CBD brand with the company beyond Ric Flair's "Ric Flair Drip" and Mike Tyson's "Tyson 2.0." Hogan discussed the new business venture with TMZ Sports and explained that it was a logical extension for him.
"When I saw what Ric and Mike were doing, I instantly wanted to get on the team because you use CBD for energy, for sleep, for fitness -- it just made sense. It's a logical extension of where I already was but this is the safe way to approach things instead of that wild card way of doctor's prescription stuff. It just didn't make sense anymore," Hogan said.
Hogan has personally felt the impact of THC and CBD. The legend has had 28 surgeries over the past ten years, but he feels better than he has in decades. He made it clear that moving into the CBD world was a game-changer for him.
"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. I feel better than I've ever felt at 69 years old, I feel like I'm 25 again. It definitely helped me because as I said the slow walk back from the prescription drugs ended with me downing the Tylenol and the Advil and Aleve's and finally even that wasn't working for me. 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 said.
As of this writing, it's unclear when Hogan's new company will launch.
