Ricky Williams, former NFL running back and Heisman Trophy winner, recently announced the release of his line of cannabis-based products.
Real Wellness by Ricky Williams is billed as a cannabis-based product designed for the health-conscious cannabis consumer. The line will launch with half a dozen products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) or a combination of the two. The products will fall into one of three categories; solutions, everyday and sport. Consumers will be able to select their method of consumption as well, with vape cartridges, salves and tonics.
In addition to cannabis, the line will also feature herbal extracts like turmeric, arnica and lavender. Real Wellness CEO, Linnea Miron, stated that part of the line was created for women looking for alternative health products.
In a press release, Ricky Williams said the following. “It’s a dream come true for me to merge my passion for healing and my fascination with plant medicines with my entrepreneurial spirit. Cannabis has played an important part in my healing journey, and I feel a responsibility to share what I have learned in the process,”
The football star recently hosted a cannabis-friendly Super Bowl party. Attendees were advised to BYOW, bring your own weed, to the party. So, there was sure to be more than a handful of super bowls at the event.
As of right now, Real Wellness by Ricky Williams items are available at eleven San Diego dispensaries, but the product should soon be expanding to the rest of Southern California. The company will also offer CBD products on their website.
Williams’ company is partnering with OutCo for cultivation and extraction. “Our entire line is inspired by my ongoing study of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. I’m constantly researching ancient healing formulas and then working with OutCo’s team of scientists to transform those formulas into products that fit our modern lifestyle,” said Williams.
