Joe Rogan, everyone’s favorite comic/podcaster/shaman/muscleman, is one of America’s most prominent cannabis supporters. In addition to the psychoactive effects of THC he’s enjoyed for years, Rogan also supports the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD.
“CBD saves vacations for me,” Rogan said on a 2019 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. “I don’t stress out. I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever tried for anxiety. It’s weird, I didn’t even know I had anxiety until I started to take CBD.
“It has no psychoactive properties. The only thing it’s going to do for some folks is alleviate some anxiety. It just relaxes you.”
Rogan, of course, has tried it by mixing THC and CBD in a 1:1 ratio: “The CBD/THC high is a different high because CBD does something to alleviate anxiety.”
He also loves the topical. It’s “probably the best thing I’ve for found for alleviating soreness and stiffness and stuff like that,” he said.
Rogan, always the comic, threw in: “There seems to be no side effects... the side effects is people think you’re a hippie.”
Is Joe Rogan a doctor? Nope. So his thoughts are just his thoughts.
