SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that they have welcomed former NFL placekicker Mike Hollis as their newest spokesperson for its subsidiary Kannaway® to help spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
"We are excited to bring Mike Hollis on our team and look forward to seeing him spread awareness on the health benefits of our CBD products," said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. "We have added Kannaway Premium Hemp Oil to Mike's morning and nightly routines and are eager for him to share his testimonial with it."
Hollis, who spent his nine-year career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills and New York Giants from 1995-2003, saw how much CBD has been circulating in the news lately, and wanted to learn about the benefits and give it a try.
"I know my position in the NFL wasn't one where I was getting hit full force every day, but the unending benefits of CBD for discomfort and overall health are what really caught my eye," said Kannaway® spokesperson Mike Hollis. "It's only a matter of time before everyone understands that CBD is not bad, it's natural and doesn't have negative side effects."
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.
"Our overall mission with these types of partnerships is to utilize influence to help shape public opinion and educate people on CBD and hemp, which often have negative connotations because of the long-standing War on Drugs," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "Like many other athletes who we've begun partnering with over the past few months, we're thankful that Mike Hollis wants to help us share our knowledge and our company story."
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.
