One of the driving forces behind the progress that has been made over the past two decades educating the public about medical cannabis has been the testimony of professional athletes who use it for recovery. From Ricky Williams, to Cliff Robinson, to John Salley, Nate Diaz, and others, the list of pro-cannabis pro athletes has grown over time. This year, another name will be added to the list: former UFC champion Frank Shamrock.

Shamrock, along with celebrity nutritionist Robert Ferguson, recently announced The Bakeout, a talk show focused on answering questions, dispelling stereotypes, and revealing the truth about cannabis. The mission of the show is to provide content that will “uplift, unite, educate, challenge, and encourage viewers in a manner consistent with the teachings of the healing powers of cannabis.”

In a Facebook post on December 24th, the show revealed that Shamrock used medical cannabis to treat his injuries resulting from 16 years of mixed-martial-arts and competitive fighting. After retiring undefeated as UFC Middleweight Champion, Shamrock has worked as a consultant, written books, acted in movies, and hosted television shows. He also runs an organization dedicated to helping at-risk youth.

Robert Ferguson, co-host of The Bakeout, is known for his company Diet Free Life and has worked with Fortune 100 companies to improve well-being for employees and consumers. He has also worked as a dietician for numerous celebrities. Together, Shamrock and Ferguson will interview medical cannabis experts, patients, activists, and entrepreneurs to highlight various aspects of cannabis medicine and help shed light on the failed policy of prohibition. They also plan to publish interviews with celebrities who have never publicly admitted using medical cannabis in the past.

The first episode will air on January 25th at 7:00pm on the show’s website, BakeOut.tv. The show is also currently seeking guests and advertising partners. More information can be found on The Bakeout website.
