Calvin Johnson Jr., and Rob Sims first became teammates as members of the Detroit Lions. They joined forces again when they founded Primitiv in 2021. The company is dedicated to the advancement of cannabis as a form of elevated wellness, including a focus on CBD products, and it’s their mission to change negative stigmas associated with the plant into curiosity through education and innovation. Both Johnson and Sims suffered from the long-term effects of the physical and mental punishment sustained during their playing careers. As they explored ways to achieve a higher state of healing, Johnson and Sims discovered that the cannabis plant, particularly through the use of CBD products, holds incredible potential as a healing agent. The group’s latest venture, Primitiv Performance, launched earlier this month and features a line of products infused with nano-CBD that speeds up the effects of the product while making it more bioavailable, showcasing the innovative intersection of cannabis, CBD, and sports wellness.

On the episode, you can hear Johnson Jr. talk about his own experiences with pain: “It’s no fun dealing with pain. When you have chronic issues that you have to deal with, it limits you. It’s like banging your head against a wall to try and make it work. You know, functionally, you can’t work when you are swollen all the time.”

Sims shares how cannabis, particularly CBD products, drives his passion and affects his personal life: “We try to create and build things around the idea that we want the next 30 years to be as good as the last 30. I want what will make me a great husband for my wife and a great father for my kids. I think cannabis, with a focus on high-quality CBD products, is a big piece of that and what will help take it to the next level. That’s where a lot of our passion comes from; we want to have the best quality of life.”
