Ice Cube and the BIG3 broke ground after legalizing CBD use for its players. Research has pointed out how CBD can be a more beneficial alternative to pain management than synthetic prescription meds and Cube thinks this will push the other major sports leagues to follow suit.
Cube also isn’t ruling out legalizing THC, the component of marijuana that produces the high sensation, for his players down the road. “We always change the game, we ahead of the game,” said Cube.
CBD and THC are both banned substances across the NBA, NFL, and other sports leagues but the more the BIG3 gains legitimacy the more alternative rulings such as this will force the hand of the other leagues to become more progressive.
