Professional hockey is one of the world’s most physically demanding sports. NHL players take a beating night in, night out for over 80 games a season. Riley Cote, a former left winger for the Philadelphia Flyers, knows that pain all too well. During his eight years as an enforcer for the Flyers, Cote would often wake up sore and swollen after a night on the ice.
The former NHL brawler—Cote racked up more than 50 fights with the Flyers from 2006 to 2010—is extremely dedicated to clean medicine and botanical health and healing. And that body care regimen has long included cannabis.
