UFC superstar Nick Diaz says he’s the “face of weed for athletes” … and isn’t afraid to admit it.
In fact, Diaz says he’s the “Number 1 athletic stoner besides Michael Phelps.”
Diaz — who’s tested positive for weed on several occasions — appeared on “The Jasta Show” and explained why athletes should be ALLOWED to smoke marijuana … especially after a fight.
You gotta listen to Diaz explain it … but essentially says he relies on weed to get his head right … especially after he’s been knocked out and he’s discombobulated.
Diaz admits weed can be performance enhancing … but no more so than vitamins.
There’s also this … Nick says his brother, Nate Diaz, was NOT smoking CBD oil after his UFC 202 loss to Conor McGregor — he was blazing up good ol’ fashioned weed.
