Kannaway, a subsidiary of Medical Marijuana, Inc., has partnered with nonprofit The Por Grace Foundation to provide cannabidiol (CBD) products to families in need.
The Por Grace Foundation was created by Mayela Benavides Arriola and Raul Elizalde, the parents of Graciela Elizalde Benavides (Grace). After Grace’s diagnosis of a serious form of epilepsy, the family saw great success and improvement for their child while implementing the use of CBD and have since worked to gain legal access to CBD in Mexico.
“We fought tirelessly to get Grace the CBD she needed, and we want to make sure that other families don’t have the same challenges,” said Mayela Benavides Arriola, Grace’s mother and Co-Founder of the Por Grace Foundation. “We are excited to partner with Kannaway to further our mission to break down accessibility and financial barriers for other families like ours that need CBD products and we are confident that this company, as well as its Brand Ambassadors, will do everything they can to help us further our efforts.”
The Por Grace Foundation obtained the first legal permits to import CBD into Mexico and works with legislators, research institutions and manufacturers to make sure everyone has access to safe and high-quality CBD products.
“Giving back has always been a priority for Kannaway,” said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. “We have donated over $2 million in CBD products since inception and are proud to continue making an impact through Por Grace. We both have a shared vision to drive positive global change through education, support, and awareness of CBD.”
