Conversations with BizNasty

Paul Talks About CBD Products & the ECHL

“I never found out about CBD until my career was over, unfortunately. Whereas when I retired, was when I really got into CBD and cannabis use. As far as CBD use in professional sports, I know plenty of guys who use CaniBrands and a lot of them message me for it.”

In February 2020, the Globe & Mail released an article deeming Paul Bissonnette the Most Influential Person in Hockey. “Hockey’s most in-demand personality, Bissonnette is sought after for his access to the young male demographic, which is reflected in his massive social-media following and makes up a large portion of his podcast’s audience.
