The great Nate Diaz does it his way.

And thus it was that at the UFC 202 post fight media scrum, Diaz was vaping what he identified as CBD (Cannabidiol).

CBD is one of the active cannabinoids in cannabis, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. However, clinical reports show a lack of psychoactivity, and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions. Is short, CBD does not get you high.

However, it is a cannabinoid, which places it on the WADA prohibited list.

CBDS don't have psychoactive properties, they inhibit seizures, and help with pain but you don't get stoned from them from what I understand.

Cbd is the medical parts of weed ot doesn't get you high its what they extract to make medicine from....thc is what gets you high.

Certain strains have high amounts of cbd to thc ratio which is what u want for medicinal purposes.....

If you want some fire that gets you lit you want a strain with the least amount of cbd in it as possibke.

Cbd actually counteracts or neutralizes the effects of thc hence the ratio being important to what your looking for.

Yeah, basically all the medical benefits without the psychoactive properties. My father has started using CBD oil to relieve the side effects from his Chemotherapy treatment.

Cannabidiol (CBD) (INN)[5] is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis.[6][7] It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.[8] CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications - due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly a lack of psychoactivity (as is typically associated with ?9-THC), and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions.

Also..
A more basic 5 point introduction to those unfamiliar with CBD

But my concern is the fact that under USADA reign, it is still a punishable offense....hopefully Nate didn't get tested after the fight...

I don't think he gives a shit. Haha, possibly facing fines & suspension for the water throwing incident and he made over a couple million dollars in 2016..

There's your main card.

I think they'd be stupid not to hype the 209 card with the Skrap Pack, the promos write themselves.

On a side note, spelling Cs as Ks and S' as Zs is sooo 90s, it's just not as extreme anymore.

CBD does mellow you out some. Modern weed gurus are creating weed with high THC content but with low CBD content. The uneven levels of high THC to low CBD have been shown to cause paranoia, schizophrenia and psychosis. Weed with even levels of THC and CBD does not cause any psychological issues.....so, there is obviously something in CBD which counteracts, balances or hinders some psychological issues that are caused by high levels of THC. I hope that my point did not get lost in my piss poor articulation. lol

What about high levels of CBD to low levels of THC?
