NBAs Blake Griffin shares healthy living tips, including cannabis, in new podcast – The GrowthOp

Blake Griffin is leaving no stone or plant unturned in his new Pursuit of Healthiness podcast.

The six-time NBA all-stars newest project has him sitting down with a host of celebrities and experts to discuss health and wellness, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The podcast, which has already been renewed for a second season by Audible, is the realization of a lifelong dream for Griffin and allows the player to share the many secrets he has uncovered in his quest to lead a truly healthy life.

Every episode I walked away with some information that I didnt know, Griffin said. One of my favourite episodes was when I interviewed Dr. Scott Smith from NASA. Hes the lead nutritionist and we got to go to NASA, tour his whole lab, the rest of the NASA (facility) and then I got to sit down and ask him questions.

That one was special because we actually went there to do the interview in person last summer.

Upcoming episodes feature conversations with Arianna Huffington about the importance of sleep, Michael B. Jordan on his workout routine and Chelsea Handler on (what else?) weed.

Handler, a long-time pot purveyor who said she re-introduced herself to cannabis after Donald Trump became president, famously celebrated her 45th birthday by skiing half-naked down a Whistler mountain with a joint in one hand and a margarita in the other.

I just think it is the way forward, she said. It is a healthy alternative to alcohol, especially for a woman over 40. You dont get the hangovers. You can have a clean living ethos. It has just changed my world so I just wanted to do everything I can to get behind the movement.

She will likely find a sympathetic ear in Griffin. With estimates of cannabis use by current NBA players being as high as 85 per cent, the Detroit Pistons power forward has told Sports Illustrated the drug can only help players who are playing through the pain.

It doesnt really affect me, but so many guys would probably benefit from it and not take as many painkillers, which have worse long-term effects, he said. So I would vote yes. I just think it makes sense.
