LeBron James is a highflyer in his own right.
Now cannabis enthusiasts have their own way to honor the king by attempting to reach new heights with a version of LeBron James weed.
The Game is no stranger to cannabis world. In fact, he spearheaded the launch of his own green company called “Trees by Game.” Now in the most blatant push to lure the King to Lakers, the Game has named the strain “LA Bron James.” The game said in a YouTube video,
“[It’s] a strain inspired by my city and them trying to bring King James to the Lake Show.”
LeBron James Weed Strain
The future of James has become a highly speculated subject after his Cleveland Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors at this year’s NBA Finals.
The King and Cannabis
LeBron is the King of politically correct, rarely caught embracing something that could tarnish his athletic reputation. He understands he has millions of kids looking up to him and chooses to keep his cannabis use, if any at that, under wraps.
But he has had his run-ins with cannabis in the past. At the 2016 MLB World Series, LeBron James’ wife appears to be smoking something in the booth at the stadium. When LeBron realizes the jumbotron camera is still on the couple, he seems to tell her to put it down
She immediately reacts awkwardly and drops her hands below the camera view. Was he smoking weed? You be the judge.
Does Lebron James Smoke Weed?
The question on everyone’s mind: does LeBron James smoke weed? Well, probably not. A LeBron James weed strain has that ultimate draw for the end user but, any athlete that operates in the realm of Lebron James most likely avoids filling his lungs with smoke. Unless you’re Michael Phelps, then you can do what you want.
But seriously, if LeBron ever blazes its in the offseason and away from the peering eyes of the public. Interestingly, there is a trend in the NFL and NBA amongst players who have admitted to using cannabis. Ex NBA players like Matt Barnes, J.R. Smith, Cuttino Mobley, and Kenyon Martin, all have admitted to using the herb.
Some ex-players like Al Harrington and Brad Miller have gone so far to launch their own cannabis ventures.
These players claim that 85% of the NBA smoked weed, and did it to combat multiple things, from pain to stress and anxiety. It’s a bold notion, one that challenges many perceptions of what we think of a top-tier athlete. But times are changing, with cannabis legalization north of the border, and one NBA franchise already located in Toronto, the NBA better be ready for more players admitted to using cannabis.
Maybe King James will be the next king to out of the cannabis closet.
