You can count martial arts enthusiast Willie Nelson amongst the many fans of Nick and Nate Diaz's foray into the world of medicinal marijuana products.
Nate Diaz made major headlines (and started a USADA investigation) after smoking from a vape pen full of medicinal marijuana CBD oil at the post fight press conference following his second fight with Conor McGregor. That happened to be a company he was sponsored by, but since then the Diaz brothers have gotten deeper into the game, releasing Nate Diaz Energy and Nick Diaz Recovery brand marijuana cigarettes through California Finest. And apparently Willie Nelson is a fan. He posted this up on his Instagram recently touting the new Diaz branded smokes.
It should be no surprise that Willie is down with what his friends from the 209 are putting out. He's just the latest famous stoner to join Nick and Nate on their groovy weed trip. In addition to Nelson, that posse now includes Snoop Dog and Tommy Chong, a veritable Mount Rushmore of marijuana activists. The new product from the Diaz brothers is being marketed as a post-workout recovery strain for athletes, although we're sure it has more than just CBDs in it, the non-psychoactive cannabidiol extract.
Maybe this is why Nick and Nate are too busy to step back into the Octagon ... they must be making some pretty decent money travelling to smoke shops, smoking ridiculous joints, and pushing a growing line of products. Good for them!
