It's no secret that with the shift of marijuana legalization in the United States there are many businessmen looking to buy in, as numerous celebrities have decided to invest in their own cannabis companies that seem likely to reap major rewards with little risk considering the product's high demand.

Sure enough, you can now add Celtics legend Paul Pierce to the list, as he's recently announced his new CBD line geared to the athletes called "The Truth CBD Remedies," which he assured was a reliable product that he uses himself.

"I created The Truth CBD Remedies to offer athletes a product they’d not only enjoy but fully trust," Pierce recently said to Business Insider, "I’m passionate about making sure athletes have support before, during, and after the main event. There is a lot of noise in the CBD market. The Truth CBD Remedies partnered with Eaze Wellness because of the shared commitment to getting high-quality products into the hands of people that care deeply about their well-being.”  

It should be noted that the former NBA champion and 10x All-Star launched his vape company "Vape Vesper" last fall, when he revealed that using CBD helps him deal with anxiety and depression.

"To all the people who ask why I vape CBD who on here been stabbed 11 times had to deal with death threats and had to deal with anxiety when in large crowds and depression then u will know," Pierce said at the time, referencing the near-fatal incident when he was stabbed in the face, neck, and back at a Boston nightclub back in the early 2000s.
