Editors Note: This is part of a month-long series for Black History Month featuring cannabis industry leaders.
A lot of the public still thinks that cannabis is harmful to your health and leads to addiction. The NFL has a long history of players getting suspended or fired for marijuana use, but this attitude is changing because more people are starting to recognize the benefits of cannabis. Cannabis has been shown to reduce pain and anxiety while providing the potential for a better quality of life.
Reuben Droughns knows firsthand how cannabis can help you manage pain and reduce anxiety in stressful situations. Reuben, an outspoken Black American supporter of cannabis consumption since his retirement from the NFL in 2009, claims that medicinal marijuana helped him manage pain and anxiety while he played professional football. He still actively promotes its benefits today.
Athletes are often afraid to admit they use cannabis for fear of losing their endorsements and sponsorships. But the benefits of using marijuana as a safer alternative to opioids or other prescription drugs by far outweigh any potential consequences, both in the short term and long run. That’s why former NFL player and current cannabis advocate Reuben is advocating for reform in the NFL. He has been one of many players to call on the league to remove cannabis from its list of banned substances.
He also wants other athletes suffering from chronic pain or mental stress to know about its benefits so they can make informed decisions about their own bodies. Reuben not only is trying to change the NFL for the better, but he’s also educating the general population on cannabis products and benefits.
In an effort to help consumers make more informed decisions about cannabis products and benefits, Reuben Droughns teamed up with Lightshade. Lightshade is on the front lines of cannabis education as a dispensary that caters to both recreational and medical marijuana users.
Reuban and Lightshade created a series of cannabis videos called Doobin’ with Reuben. The show will explore his personal insights on the wide variety of different cannabis products and provide consumers with crucial information they can use when buying their next product.
Doobin’ with Reuban will discuss all things cannabis in this episode.
- They’ll explore effects consumers can expect from each type of product reviewed and share some ideal use cases for each cannabis experience.
- Key takeaways from their experience including cannabinoid levels in milligrams and whether it is a vape, edible, or tincture being reviewed will also be highlighted as well.
With all the choices and options available today, it is difficult to navigate through a saturated market. There’s a way to know which products are worth their cash: Doobin’ with Reuban.
“People have a lot of questions about different products, how much to ingest and what to expect when they’re enjoying cannabis. I hope my reviews help folks gain the knowledge they need to make the best decisions and that they have fun while watching them, too. We definitely have fun making them.” Reuben Droughns
Reuben is a man on a mission. He wants to make the world a better place by educating people about cannabis products and advocating for NFL players.
