It is no secret that UFC commentator Joe Rogan uses medical marijuana.

The 48-year-old has discussed his use of the drug on many occasions, including on his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience”.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Rogan revealed that medical marijuana is not the only ‘banned substance’ he is currently using (transcribed by MMAFighting):

He shoots himself up with testosterone on a weekly basis — “It’s what fighters get in trouble for, but, obviously, I’m not competing. I just like the idea that I’m cheating old age and death, although, you know, you can’t cheat it forever”— as well as human growth hormone. If he’s dragging a little, he’ll pop a Nuvigil, a variant of the focus-improving drug that fighter pilots use.

Most mornings, he preps for the day with a Vitamixed, sludgy blend of kale, spinach, celery, “a large hunk of ginger about the size of a child’s thumb,” four cloves of garlic, an apple and some coconut oil. Tastes like crud. “But after your body digests it,” he says, “you’re like, ‘Whoa, we’ve got a lot of stuff to work with here.’ ”

Obviously Joe Rogan does not compete for the UFC, so his use of Testosterone and ‘HGH’ is not breaking any rules, but simply a lifestyle choice.

“I’ve taken a lot of different stuff,” Rogan said. “Now, I take human growth hormone and testosterone. I go for hormone replacement therapy. I don’t need more [testosterone]. It’s a very light dose. The testosterone is cream. It’s healthy. It does wonders for your body.”
