SAN DIEGO, Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that NFL Hall of Famer and former Rams running back Eric Dickerson will be giving a keynote speech at the Believe National Convention in San Diego on April 14, 2019.
"This event will be one of our largest and most exciting events yet," said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. "We believe that our Brand Ambassadors will benefit from learning about his background as a professional athlete and his experience using cannabidiol (CBD)."
After being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft, Dickerson played in the NFL for 11 seasons with his most success coming with his tenure as a Los Angeles Ram. Dickerson was a 6-time Pro Bowler, NFL Player of the Year in 1986, and the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1983. In 1999, Dickerson was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.
"It's an honor to be invited to this large respected event and share my story on how hemp-derived CBD has helped me," said Eric Dickerson. "Before trying it, I was skeptical about CBD but as I gained a greater understanding about what it is, it became easy to see how it has the potential to benefit many people."
The Believe National Convention will take place at the Sheraton San Diego on April 13-14, 2019. Events like the Believe National Convention are an important opportunity for Kannaway's Brand Ambassadors to immerse themselves within the Kannaway culture, network with fellow Brand Ambassadors, and gain the skills and information necessary to create a sustaining Kannaway business.
