Cain Velasquez, Former Two Time UFC Heavyweight Champion, has been using marijuana for quite some time now, and he’s open about it.
Eight days from now, the world will again witness two of the most talented Heavyweights of all time, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum. Due to their previous fight, Velasquez still suffers from a pain from his right leg due to sciatic nerve issue, which prevents him from standing for a long period of time.
Velasquez said “It’s an achy pain that goes down your leg, and it gets to a point where if you’re standing for 10 minutes, you have to sit down. If you’re going out for a while, a half-hour, you know it’s going to be pretty painful. You have to sit down and take the compression off your back.”
Now in order to help him manage his pain and help him recover from it, he uses the CBD oil cannabidiol oil as a remedy. He honestly told that it helped him opt to stay for his previous fight with Werdum at UFC 196. Now preparing for his rematch with the one who took away his belt, he calls the aid of his “Wonder” medicine in order to help him regain his full strength.
