Ortiz was on hand at the product launch just days after his induction into the Hall of Fame. The slugger said while he didn't use cannabis before he played, he thinks it's a great tool to deal with stress and physical pain.

"Reality is that cannabis doesn't help in baseball, I don't think. You know what I'm saying, if you're talking about sports, you always gotta be speeding up, and cannabis slows you down," he joked.

Rev Brands said they will release more Papi Cannabis products later this summer.
