Medical Marijuana, Inc. Subsidiary Kannaway® Adds Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl Legend Kenneth Christopher "Skip" McClendon as Spokesperson

SAN DIEGO, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that its subsidiary Kannaway® is pleased to welcome Kenneth Christopher "Skip" McClendon as a company spokesperson to help spread awareness on the benefits of hemp cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.

"For many, CBD is the last solution to their problems when it should actually be their first," said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. "We look forward to seeing the future positive impact of Skip sharing his experience with CBD and helping others not only see it as a last resort."

McClendon played as a Defensive End in the NFL from 1987 to 1993. He was first drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals and after just two years he led them to Super Bowl XXIII. He continued to play in the NFL for multiple teams including the San Diego Chargers, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Indianapolis Colts.

"I love Kannaway's CBD Salve, Gold and Premium CBD Oral Applicators, and Pure CBD Liquid," said Kannaway® Spokesperson Skip McClendon. "There was a noticeable change when I first started taking these products - my knees and shoulders felt better and the fact that I'm more relaxed now is an improvement. I'm also sleeping better."

Kannaway® is the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products. McClendon joins the Kannaway® Sports division, which 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.

"For many, CBD can be a simple way to improve overall wellness where other solutions were unable to provide relief," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart. "We're glad that current and former athletes, both amateur and professional, are beginning to see how CBD can help them live their lives to their fullest potential."
