WWE legend Ric Flair to be face of cannabis for erectile dysfunction after joining forces with Mike Tyson’s weed empire

SUFFERING from erectile dysfunction can feel like being punched below the belt – psychologically as well as physically.

Now WWE icon Ric Flair says he’ll be the face of a cannabis product tackling the problem – courtesy of Mike Tyson‘s weed company.

It’s thought around 52 per cent of men will have ED at some time, often with distressing effects, made worse if they feel unable to seek help for what, sadly, can still be seen as a taboo subject.

So, perhaps, who better than two larger-than-life sporting legends to help bring the issue out into the open?

Memphis superstar Flair, 74, has fought for 50 years and has insisted he might lock horns in the ring yet again sometime.

And although he admits he lacks understanding of the possible medical benefits of cannabis, he believes it helps in his day-to-day life, such as sleeping better.

Explaining his love of the drug to Busted Open Radio, he added: “My line drops here in Florida where you still have to have a medical card to get it. 

“As far as going and lecturing and talking about it, no. I’m not that knowledgeable. There’s a lot to learn about cannabis. 

“They’re going to have a cannabis for erectile dysfunction, and guess who will be the face of that? Wooooo!”

Flair could be referring to Cannabidiol, one of the 85 chemical compounds in marijuana – but not one of those that can get you “high”.


Cannabidiol (CBD) could potentially improve mood and sleep, as well as being anti-inflammatory.

And when used as a lubricating oil it might stimulate blood flow and pleasure, as well as potentially reducing performance anxiety and general stress.

But it’s understood there’s no direct evidence so far that CBD works on ED.

The “Tyson 2.0” cannabis company gained a majority stake in Ric Flair Drip, Inc in March 2022.

Flair said at the time he had “become a true cannabis advocate and enthusiast”.

And if it’s also shown to combat ED, then its backers will surely dramatically increase in numbers
