Kevin Nash To Debut Strain on Dispensary Tour in Michigan

Kevin Nash, a former pro wrestler and co-founder of NWO is launching his first strain using the knowledge of HYMAN Cannabis.

Nash’s new strain and collaboration was first announced at the GCW Notorious show, E Wrestling News and Wrestling Headlines reported last January. On his podcast KLIQ This you can listen to Nash discuss the new endeavor.

Jackknife, (Creamsicle x Soñando) his signature strain, is the result of narrowing down some of HYMAN‘s marquee genetics. Soñando has a citrus, orange, and berry flavor profile, and Creamsicle tastes exactly how you’d expect it to. HYMAN’s Head Cultivator Rabid Hippie oversees the Michigan-based cultivator’s 30,000 square feet of canopy space.

Nash’s own version of the Jackknife Manoeuvre is well-known. In his heyday, Nash perfected the “Jackknife Powerbomb,” an enhanced version of a powerbomb that sees the opponent thrown forward and then down—one way to finish the job. But all of the physical strain that goes into wrestling takes its toll, and that’s where cannabis comes in.

“My signature move: Jackknife Power Bomb, my finishing maneuver, is fitting for my strain partnership with HYMAN cannabis as I feel it accurately represents the strength and potency of the flower,” Nash tells Chronic News. “When you’re being Jackknifed, you’re not in control over the situation.

“Turning my pain into passion, I have become very familiar with cannabis and the one thing I find to be most important is quality,” Nash adds. “HYMAN cultivators have achieved a level of quality that is like nothing else I’ve tried—everything HYMAN does is by design and I am excited to hear what fans think when they try it.” 

Nash is a six-time World Champion. He also holds five WCW World Heavyweight Champion titles and one WWF Champion title. Nash was also crowned 12 times as a world tag team champion.

Maybe you’ve seen Nash in movies such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Magic Mike, John Wick, Rock of Ages, Longest YardAnd Punisher (2004). Nash was also a D1 college basketball player for the Tennessee Volunteers. After seeing the film, Nash joined the Army. Stripes. He was honorably discharged, leading him to go back into basketball until a “career-ending” knee injury finished off his professional athletic career.
