Nick Diaz Claims Cannabis Is A Performance Enhancer
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) superstar and former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title challenger, Nick Diaz, recently made a shocking remark about marijuana that has the media buzzing.
Diaz claims he likes to smoke marijuana when he feels "beat to shit" or unfocused. He has always been an outspoken advocate for cannabis but has recently stated that he feels marijuana is a performance enhancing drug. When he appeared on The Jasta Show, Nick stated, "I do think it's a performance enhancing drug, but I mean like, so are vitamins. People get really misconstrued on that whole thing." He continues to express his opinion on marijuana use when it comes to sports, claiming himself to be "the number one athletic stoner besides Michael Phelps."
Nick Diaz feels that it would be, "limiting to die without ever smoking weed or indulging in some way... Limiting yourself, in general, is a really big thing to me. Becoming conditioned and limiting yourself, it screws with me."
He also spoke on his brother, Nate Diaz's, recent involvement with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for smoking a vape pen that contained CBD at the UFC 202's post-fight press conference. "That wasn't CBD," Nick said. "He was smoking the chronic. That was some kush."
