A New Chapter: Revolution Partners with Ricky Williams & Highsman

We are proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Highsman, the forward-thinking cannabis brand founded by NFL legend and renowned cannabis advocate Ricky Williams. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our journey and for the cannabis industry.

Ricky Williams: A Trailblazer On and Off the Field

Ricky Williams‘ story is one of extraordinary talent and conviction. A Heisman Trophy winner and a star in the NFL, Ricky has always been an advocate for cannabis. He uses his platform to challenge stereotypes and advocate for change. His journey from the football field to the forefront of cannabis advocacy with Highsman is a powerful testament to his character.

My Personal Connection with Ricky’s Vision

My connection to Ricky’s story is deeply personal. Born just a month apart, I’ve admired Ricky since my college days in Texas, where I watched him dominate. Meanwhile, my path took me to the heart of the cannabis movement, fighting for legalization and developing innovative cultivation techniques. However, our shared passion for cannabis advocacy and pursuit of award-winning excellence has led us to this moment.

Sparking Greatness: Our Shared Vision and Future

This partnership is more than a collaboration between two entities. It’s a fusion of two journeys united by a shared belief in the power of cannabis. As we gear up for the Super Bowl, our first product launch is a celebration of our partnership and a testament to the mission we share. This collaboration will redefine excellence in the cannabis industry, reflecting the mutual dedication of Highsman and Revolution to authenticity, innovation, and wellness.

Join us in celebrating this innovative partnership. As we look ahead, we’ll continue to push boundaries and advocate for a future where we recognize cannabis as a key to wellness and personal authenticity.

General Cannabis FAQ

Cannabis, often referred to as marijuana, is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including medicine, textiles, and recreation. The plant contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. THC is primarily responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects, while CBD is recognized for its potential therapeutic benefits without causing a “high.”

Many countries and U.S. states have decriminalized or legalized the use of marijuana for medical use, recreational, or both. The legal status changes frequently as legislation evolves.

In the U.S., states vote to regulate marijuana use on an individual basis. While it remains illegal at the federal level, numerous states have legalized it for medicinal and/or recreational use.

The following states have legalized medical, recreational, or both:

  • Alaska – Medical

Always check local laws and regulations in your specific location.

In states where marijuana has been legalized, you can purchase products at licensed dispensaries. Revolution products are available at Enlightened, Revolution, and partner dispensaries in Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, and Maryland. Find a dispensary near you.

Keep in mind that dispensaries may cater to medical patients, recreational consumers, or both, depending on local laws.

Always ensure that you are buying from a reputable and licensed establishment to guarantee product quality and safety.

The effects of cannabis vary widely depending on the strain, dosage, method of consumption, an individual’s endocannabinoid system, and more.

Some commonly reported effects include:

Psychoactive Effects: Euphoria, mood elevation, cerebral stimulation, stress relief, calming effects, and relaxation.

Physical Effects: Pain relief, body buzz, anti-inflammation, anti-nausea, energy boost or sedation, and appetite stimulation

*Medical Benefits: Cannabis is believed to have a range of therapeutic effects and alleviation of symptoms related to conditions like epilepsy, PTSD, and more.

*Marijuana is not approved by the FDA to treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The primary difference lies in their intended use:

Medical Cannabis: Used as a treatment and alleviation of symptoms for specific health conditions. Medical strains might be cultivated and processed to have higher CBD content or other therapeutic compounds. Medical cannabis requires a physician who usually prescribes or recommends it as a treatment option.

Recreational Cannabis: Used without a medical justification but for personal enjoyment and fulfillment.

The process varies from state to state but typically involves the following steps:

Doctor’s Recommendation: Schedule an appointment with a physician who is authorized to recommend medical marijuana. Discuss your health conditions and reasons for seeking cannabis as a treatment.

Application: Once you have a doctor’s recommendation, you’ll usually need to apply for a medical marijuana card through a designated state or country agency.

Proof & Identification: Provide necessary identification and proof of residency as required by your jurisdiction.

Fee Payment: Most jurisdictions require a fee for the application and issuance of a medical marijuana card.

Card Issuance: Once approved, you will receive your medical marijuana card, allowing you to purchase cannabis at designated medical dispensaries.
