Broncos Legend Terrell Davis Jumps on the CBD Train

Former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis knows a thing or two about pain and injury. The Pro Football Hall of Famer was on his way to becoming one of the game’s greatest of all time when major knee injuries derailed his career — but not before he racked up nearly 9,000 overall yards, 65 touchdowns and plenty of hits.

Davis says he would’ve been able to suit up longer if he’d been allowed to take CBD during his playing days. And now the three-time All-Pro running back is pushing the cannabinoid after partnering with Defy, a CBD-infused sports drink.

A compound of hemp and marijuana, CBD isn’t psychoactive, but rather shows potential for treating pain, inflammation, anxiety and skin disorders, among other afflictions. In an interview with TheStreet, Davis says he’d been taking anti-inflammatory medications for years to treat joint pain and migraines.

“And we all know that the long-term effects of being on anti-inflammatory medicine is not good,” he says in the story. “I’ve been on CBD for well over a year now, and I can tell you that my body feels great. I have no more inflammation in my body, my knee, and my joint pain is gone. My migraines — I haven’t taken migraine medicine for over a year.”

Davis recently told TMZ that taking CBD might have helped with the inflammation he suffered during rehabilitation to get back on the football field, possibly extending his shortened career.

In addition to this new venture with Defy, Davis is involved with other cannabis-industry efforts, such as working with the Minority Cannabis Business Association to promote a more diverse pot industry.

Defy hasn’t hit shelves just yet. But because the product is made from hemp-derived CBD, the company won’t have to limit sales to marijuana dispensaries where pot is legal; it can also offer it online or at CBD stores around the country.

Since Colorado and Washington Legalized Weed, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are Undefeated at Home

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks have gone a combined 23-0 (in the regular season) when playing on their home turf since each team’s home state, Colorado and Washington, ??legalized weed over a year ago.

The ?Seahawks haven’t lost at home the past two seasons, and the ?Broncos lone, non-playoff home loss in that span came last September to the Houston Texans (they lost to Baltimore last December at home thanks to that Jacoby Jones schwag).
Is it a meaningful coincidence of sorts? Do NFL players seek, discover, and inhale ?the best weed when they touch down in Colorado or Washington? Unlikely, even though both teams have battled ?substance “abuse” problems themselves this year.

Both Super Bowl contenders are just really, really good and the home records are a reflection of their dominance over the last two years. While it’s fun to imagine Dwayne Bowe hopping off the plane, and immediately running to the local clinic for some ?Tangie or Alaskan Thunder Fuck, it’s more likely he gets delivery service.

The Broncos face Kansas City in Arrowhead while the Seahawks host New Orleans tomorrow night, which is probably the only time either team will maybe lose until the playoffs. If the two teams face off in the Super Bowl, expect the NYPD to bring a lot of Visine to the Meadowlands.
