Dixie Brands’ Ambassador Ava Knight Lands the Cover of Culture Magazine
Ding ding ding ding! Ava Knight, The WBC Champion boxer and friend of Dixie spoke with Culture magazine in the January 2019 issue. In it, she tells us about her personal journey and how that has led her to become a cannabis advocate.
“She, along with a number of high-caliber athletes, are trying to combat years of misinformation and attacks on the plants whose healing benefits they have felt first hand.”
Between all the excitement of training Joe Jonas and Wiz Khalifa, and winning match after match, one thing was undeniable – injuries and fatigue take a tremendous toll on the body of a fighter.
Though at first Ava had reservations about admitting that she used cannabis, she now sings its praises. In her words, “…at the end of the day, I feel like it’s such a positive plant that has medical benefits to it, that I feel like I can’t deny it.” Now she speaks freely about smoking and using THC and CBD topicals. Ava loves Dixie SYNERGY balm to rid inflammation and maintain a free-range of motion, pain-free in her wrists. It even helped her dog!
