Medical Marijuana, Inc., the parent company of HempMeds®, announced that Italo Penarrubia will be a brand ambassador for the company. Penarrubia is an X Games world record-holding skateboarder.
“We are excited to bring Penarrubia on as a part of our team and it is heart-warming to know how much our products have helped him over the years,” said HempMeds® CEO Raul Elizalde. “We believe his support and recognition will help us further educate athletes and the general public on the health and wellness benefits of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products.”
Penarrubia earned a world record for the highest SKB Big Air height ever recorded at the X Games during his performance at the 2017 X Games in Minneapolis.
“I have been using HempMeds’ CBD products for years to aid in recovery after long days of training,” Penarrubia said. “My goal is to help bridge the knowledge gap for athletes around the world that could benefit from using CBD but are afraid or unsure of how to use the products.”
