WWE legend Ric Flair says he will be the face of Mike Tyson's 'cannabis for erectile dysfunction'
| Last updated
Mike Tyson’s cannabis empire is growing and Ric Flair is along for the ride.
The WWE legend has joined forces with the boxing icon through their joint passion for cannabis, and now Flair has a new role within the company.
The 16-time wrestling world champion is helping tackle a problem that 52 per cent of men suffer from, according to The Sun.
Suffering from erectile dysfunction? Well, Mike Tyson and Ric Flair have the cure.
That was a weird sentence to type.
It’s a topic that is often taboo, but many men suffer from at some stage in their life, so who better than two sporting legends to help bring light to the issue?
Flair and Tyson have been partners in the industry for quite some time now and have been open about their adulation for the green stuff.
And although Flair admits he doesn’t completely understand the medical benefits of cannabis, he says it has personally helped his own day-to-day life.
In a conversation on Busted Open Radio the Memphis legend explained his excitement for the new role in the industry.
He said: “My [weed] line drops here in Florida where you still have to have a medical card to get it.
"As far as going and lecturing and talking about it, no. I’m not that knowledgeable. There’s a lot to learn about cannabis.
"They’re going to have a cannabis for erectile dysfunction, and guess who will be the face of that? Wooooo!”
While the effects of cannabis on erectile dysfunction haven’t been investigated, Flair could be referring to Cannabidiol (CBD), which is one of the chemical compounds in marijuana.
Although, it’s not the one that gives you a ‘high’.
It instead improves mood and sleep, and apparently, when used as a lubricating oil it helps stimulated blood flow, potentially reducing performance anxiety.
‘Tyson 2.0’ gained a majority stake in Ric Flair Drip, Inc in March 2022.
The pair have become public-facing advocates for the drug - and now advocates for combatting ED.
