Lamar Odom, NBA Champion and Former Husband of Khloé Kardashian, Gets into Cannabis Biz

Lamar Odom, the former NBA champion and ex-husband to Khloé Kardashian, is promoting a new venture. The 38-year-old is starting a business for marijuana-based products, a growing market in states where pot is legal.

Odom, who last summer opened up about his cocaine addiction that nearly cost him his life, said in a press release Thursday that he found marijuana to be helpful in his recovery from hard drugs.

While going through rehab, I discovered certain strains that support wellness,” Odom said. “Friends, associates, and ex-teammates asked me what solutions I was using on my road back to recovery, and that’s when Rich Soil Organics was born. It’s a perfect time to offer these cannabis solutions to the public who may be going through similar body issues as I am.”

Odom’s Rich Soil Organics, will open later this year in California and provide products Odom believes can help others.

Marijuana is legal in California, and it became the country’s largest state to offer legal marijuana sales at the beginning of 2018.

In 2015, Odom made headlines after being found unresponsive at a brothel in Las Vegas. He reportedly took cocaine and 10 doses of Viagra-like medication. He was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support after suffering several strokes and kidney failure. He spent four days in a coma.
