Nick Diaz Speaks On Using Cannabis Before He Trains

Nick Diaz’s suspension for testing positive for marijuana after UFC 193 has been reduced to 18 months, and he recently spoke to High Times about his cannabis usage. Diaz explained that he uses weed whether he’s at home, getting ready to train, or finished training for the day.

When asked about smoking cannabis on a daily basis, Diaz discussed his usage:

“If I’m at home and I’m training — doing my same things every day — then I’m definitely going to want to use cannabis,” Diaz told High Times. “It’s gonna help. I’m trying to stay focused on what I’m doing. I don’t want a whole lot of things going on — people to call back, or text messages or whatever. I chill out, relax a little bit, and then I don’t have those issues. If I’m going to train all day, when I get done, I’m gonna want to smoke. If I have to go and train all day, before I go, I’m gonna want to smoke. If I wake up in the morning and feel beat to shit, and it’s going to take me forever to wake up, I smoke some weed and I wake right up. Then I have breakfast and I go do a workout.”

Diaz is now eligible to fight again in August.
