The exclusive meet & greet event will mark the union of two industry leaders and offer fans and wellness enthusiasts a unique chance to interact with the football legend himself, according to a Tuesday Revolution release.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Ricky Williams (a 46-year-old San Diego native who won the 1998 Heisman Trophy after playing for the Texas Longhorns), and delve into informative discussions about Highsman cannabis strains, holistic wellness, and the positive impact of plant-based remedies, Revolution said.

“As a fan of Ricky’s work on and off the field, we are beyond excited to team up with Highsman,” Dusty Shroyer, president of Revolution, said in Tuesday’s release. “This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to bring top-shelf products to our customers. We can’t wait to introduce our community to Highsman’s vision and products.”

Founded by Williams (whose NFL career rushing high was for the Miami Dolphins in 2002, with 1,853 yards for the season), Highsman is a cannabis lifestyle brand that empowers individuals to reach peak performance in all areas of life through the benefits of cannabis and natural wellness, the Revolution release said.

Highsman offers a unique platform for sports fans and cannabis enthusiasts to explore their relationship with cannabis through three distinct collections—Pregame, Halftime, and Postgame—tailored for different moments of the day.

Revolution Dispensary opened Dec. 8, 2023 at the renovated former location of West Music off John Deere Road. It is Moline’s second cannabis dispensary, after Terrace Cannabis, 2727 Avenue of the Cities.
