Welcome to the Green Rush, a KCSA Strategic Communications Production, and a weekly conversation hosted by Anne Donohoe and Nick Opich.
Each episode we talk with the most interesting, influential, people in cannabis and psychedelic industries and this week we’re replaying an old favorite of ours, our conversation with Eben Britton, a former NFL offensive lineman and a dedicated cannabis and psychedelics advocate, podcaster and all-around fascinating guy.
Selected 39th overall in the 2009 NFL draft, Eben spent four years with the Jacksonville Jaguars followed by two with the Chicago Bears. Since his retirement in 2014, Britton has been extremely open about his use of cannabis as a preferred method of pain management during his football career, and has cited the health risks associated with pharmaceutical painkillers as a reason why players should not be punished for choosing a natural alternative. Britton is now a board member of Athletes for Care, a group that advocates for athletes on various issues of health and safety including the use of cannabis as medicine.
This is truly a fascinating conversation, one that covers mental health, cannabis, the NFL and psychedelics. Eben gives our hosts a deep, personal dive into the trials and tribulations of his football career and how cannabis has helped him achieve a greater sense of peace in his post-playing career.
So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy our conversation with Eben Britton.
