“We are delighted that Clifton has agreed to join our team. Hailed as Rainmaker throughout his career, he is a proven leader in strategic planning for brand development and revenue growth," said United Cannabis Corporations CEO Earnest Blackmon.

Lambreth said, "What I discovered in United Cannabis is a publicly-traded company driven by a mission of helping people in pain. Once I found out they also have a solid IP portfolio with a patent that protects them in 36 different ways, compounds in clinical trials, proprietary products, a distribution network covering the United States, Europe and the Caribbean, and a thriving industrial hemp operation, I just couldn’t resist coming on board.”
