According to the legend Flair, he’s making more money than he did during his prime days in the WWE. This raised some eyebrows with the fans as to how they were doing it. And the answer was surprising to many.

Talking to MuscleandHealth magazine, Flair elaborated on his new business venture. A new energy drink formulated from adaptogenic mushrooms. “They’re functional mushrooms; perfectly legal,” Flair said.

However, this wasn’t the venture Flair got into with Hogan and Tyson. It was Ric Flair Drip. This is a company founded by Flair and Chad Bronstein, the brand’s co-founder, president & chairman. The two were boating buddies who decided to form the company together after discovering their love for cannabis. “I’m making more money than ever. Our cannabis products and merch are so popular, and the drinks are just getting started.”

Flair, Tyson, and now Hogan are all a part of Carma HoldCo. “I didn’t realize how much cannabis is loved, and people were dying to get it until I got into business,” Flair added. In the interview, the WWE legend stated his reasoning for consuming cannabis and how it helped him. Tyson had always been an advocate for cannabis use too. According to Flair, he is healthier than before. He spoke in length about the difference in his experience with prescribed medicine and cannabis use to alleviate pain.

Flair and Hogan’s use of cannabis for health benefits

“Somebody handed me a Xanax. I started just taking one or two milligrams a day, which is not a lot. But it’s addictive,” Flair said on the use of drugs compared to cannabis. According to the legend, Flair suffered from major anxiety issues in 89’. After using cannabis, Flair claims to sleep better, have less anxiety, and have zero use for Xanax.
