How UFC Champion Frank Shamrock Uses Cannabis for Pain Relief

UFC champion Frank Shamrock uses cannabis to stay healthy. At 17, when Shamrock's entire right leg went numb as the result of a former back injury, doctors put him in a full body cast and told him the hardest part of his life going forward would be managing pain. "What they give you will make you a drug addict," he was told about opioids. And so cannabis became Shamrock's alternative, carrying him through a successful athletic career and into the present day. 


Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
