Earlier this week, it was announced that Hulk Hogan would be taking over as the Chief Brand Officer for his upcoming CBD brand at Carma HoldCo. During a recent interview with Forbes, Hogan recalled some of the early moments of his career.
The journalist was interested in whether Hulk Hogan used cannabis or THC as a wrestler. "Oh, I have, back in the day, of course. I started wrestling in the late ‘70s, my man. And during the ‘80s it was the wild, wild west.
We were at Madison Square Garden with Blondie and Cindy Lauper and Andy Warhol. So I've been around the block a couple times, if you know what I'm saying. But for me, this is more than just somebody tapping in and wanting to get high on weed.
For me, it's like a new fight, just a different mission."- he said, as quoted by forbes.com
Hulk Hogan on CBD impacts
As Hogan emphasized, it was extremely helpful to him at certain points in his life. There was a huge impact on him as a result of it.
"This is about helping people. I mean, just wind them down from all these pharmaceuticals and get them back to being normal where they can function. And just be happy human beings instead of just medicated to the hill, walking around in a fog because that's where I was at." As a result of CBD, he felt younger and stronger.
Hogan is very happy that he has found a solution to all the problems that he has been experiencing for the past few years, including the pain. "I was just so full of surgeries and anesthesia and pain pills. I wasn't myself anymore.
It didn't feel good. And this is the first time since I've been using the CBD stuff for sleep and energy, and it was the first time I've been able to sleep all night without getting up and being restless. And my inflammation is gone. I don't feel nearly as bad as I did trying to lift weights. And I feel like I gained like 25 years back."
