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. This week our old friend Lewis Goldberg is filling in as host for a conversation with Elias “The Spartan” Theodorou, a top-ranked middleweight fighter in the UFC and a committed advocate to fighting the stigma of medical cannabis in athletics.
In a monumental decision back in January 2020, Elias became the first professional athlete to receive a Therapeutic Use Exemption for medical cannabis. Lewis discussed that process with Elias, how he uses cannabis in his training and recovery and what he believes needs to change about the relationship between sports leagues and cannabis.
In the conversation, Elias also touches on his work with New World, an augmented reality art-focused NFT company that allows creators, musicians, and celebrities to have access to an NFT distribution canvas to create and sell digital art. Elias touches on how the NFT market can be used to raise awareness and promote advocacy.
So sit back and enjoy our conversation with Elias “The Spartan” Theodorou.
