Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon calls himself "old school," including his use of marijuana both during and after his career.

Yet McMahon's stab at self-medicating could be ahead of its time. Researchers at Johns Hopkins plan to test whether a compound found in hemp - and its notorious cousin, cannabis - proves as effective in treating brain injuries as testimonials claim.

Some former players believe cannabidiol, or CBD, could help millions who suffer brain injuries each year, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative disease caused by repeated concussions and found in many former NFL players whose brains have been autopsied.
