Retired NFL star Marshawn Beast Mode Lynch Launches cannabis brand Dodi Blunts

“Dodi has always been a part of my life,” he says. “If I was going to have a marijuana company, I wanted to make sure I did it the right way.”

The company’s first product, THCa diamonds-infused blunts, will go on sale at Bay Area dispensaries next month and is made using an organically grown Zkittles marijuana strain curated by Lynch and his friends. The blunts come rolled in a palm leaf wrapper, his preferred method of smoking.

NFL player Rob Gronkowski has also taken a plunge in the green industry partnering with CBD products company CBDMedic to create a line of topical pain treatments using the cannabis-derived compound. Gronkowski said in a press conference that his father first introduced him to a CBDMedic topical cream for use as a pain reliever (his father uses it for back pain), and the former Patriot applied it to a few bruised toes he suffered during an offseason game of pickup soccer.

If this is any indication on where sports and medicine is headed I would say bet on the green.
