SAN DIEGO, Jan. 24, 2019 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that former NBA All-Star James Donaldson has become a spokesperson for its subsidiary Kannaway® to help spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
“We look forward to working with James Donaldson to continue our goal of spreading awareness about the wellness benefits of CBD,” said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. “We are fortunate that he is a renowned athlete who has seen amazing health results while using CBD oil, and we look forward to sharing his story to inspire others.”
Donaldson was previously a Center for the Seattle SuperSonics, Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks, and earned a spot of the NBA’s 1988 All-Star team. He learned about Kannaway® from a friend and since has begun using the Premium Hemp Oil full-spectrum oral applicator, the Gold Premium Hemp Oil oral applicator, and the Premium Humulus Oil liquid.
“Many people who I’ve spoken to about CBD are on medication for one thing or another and are concerned about what their doctor might say or how it might interact with some of the medications they’re already on,” said Kannaway® spokesperson James Donaldson. “If someone was skeptical about taking CBD, I’d tell them that it’s not marijuana and it definitely won’t get them high. CBD is a great, safe and natural alternative for me and I am thankful for Kannaway’s high-quality products.”
Kannaway® is the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products. The Kannaway® Sports division aims to spread awareness of the many important benefits CBD offers for professional and amateur athletes, connecting former NFL athletes with the education and products they need to help them live happier, more fulfilling lives.
“It’s exciting to see people from so many different walks of life, including professional athletes, experiencing success with CBD,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Through partnerships with athletes such as James and personal stories, we hope that people around the world gain a better understanding of our mission to expand access to CBD.”
Kannaway® is a network sales and marketing company specializing in the sales and marketing of hemp-based botanical products. Kannaway® currently hosts weekly online sales meetings and conferences across the United States, offering unique insight and opportunity to sales professionals who are desirous of becoming successful leaders in the sale and marketing of hemp-based botanical products.
