Posted by Jason Ferruggia

You do not have to let your past define who you are today. In this episode of the Renegade Radio Podcast with Joseph Sheehey you’ll learn how to use your past mistakes as stepping stones to an amazing new life.

Joseph is a mechanical engineer, top ranked Men’s Physique competitor, online fitness coach and host of the Higher Health podcast. He is also the founder and owner of Cured Nutrition, a company comprised of athletes, dreamers and healers that believe in the power of hemp. They’ve created the best and most unique CBD infused products available anywhere, so people can enjoy the health and balance that comes from incorporating cannabinoids into their daily life.

For Joseph life wasn’t always filled with achievement and success. While attending college he began partying excessively and using illegal drugs. His dangerous and destructive habits lead him down a dark path filled with anxiety, depression and despair. After hitting rock bottom he made the decision to turn his life around. Using bodybuilding as a gateway to a healthy new life Joseph conquered the demons of his past and found his new purpose.
