From the Gridiron to the Green: How NFL Veterans Calvin Johnson and Rob Sims Are Changing the Game

Calvin Johnson Jr. and Rob Sims, former NFL teammates, have made a surprising transition from the gridiron to the world of cannabis. But their journey isn't just about cashing in on a new trend – it's about leveraging their expertise as athletes to create innovative products that benefit the broader community.

As professional athletes, Johnson and Sims suffered from sports-related injuries that left them in chronic pain. But it was during this time that they discovered the benefits of cannabis in alleviating their symptoms. This epiphany sparked their journey to develop cannabis-based wellness products tailored specifically for athletes.

Their company, Primitiv Performance, is dedicated to creating innovative products that harness the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. By combining multiple cannabinoids, they've developed topicals and other products that enhance traditional recovery methods.

Johnson and Sims are passionate about sharing their knowledge and expertise with others, saying, "We're not just about selling products – we're about educating people on the benefits of cannabis.

The NFL's recent policy changes allowing players more leniency with cannabis use are a testament to the growing recognition of its health benefits. Johnson and Sims believe that this shift in perception is just the beginning. They're committed to dispelling myths and providing credible information about cannabis, citing their partnership with Harvard University to study the medicinal effects of cannabis.
