Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski, a former New England Patriots key player, is now into CBD. The retired player proclaimed on Tuesday that he’s a spokesperson for Abacus Health Product for its cannabis-extract CBDMEDIC pain reliever items.
Gronk’s New Venture

During his NFL career, Gronk won three Super Bowls playing for the Patriots, however, due to several injuries was not able to play for the 29 regular-season matches.
He said that he forced himself during his entire career as an NFL player, even while recuperating from many injuries and nine surgeries.

Abacus creates its OTC topical medicines, also known as cannabidiol, which is a marijuana extract that does not cause any high effect but is vital for medical cannabis.

Perry Antelman, Abacus CEO, said that the company is proud to have the most excellent tight ends to grace football. He also added that Gronkowski’s exuberant’s passion towards life while upholding a healthy, pain-free, and natural lifestyle that agrees with the company’s mission.
