Medical Marijuana, Inc., the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S., yesterday announced that former New York Yankees and San Diego Padres relief pitcher and MLB Hall of Famer Goose Gossage has become a spokesperson for its subsidiary Kannaway® to help spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
“We’re looking forward to working with Goose Gossage to continue spreading awareness about the health and wellness benefits of CBD,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “His personal story is a prime example of how CBD is a great supplement that can be taken daily to help people, especially former athletes, continue living active lifestyles, and we are thrilled to have such a passionate spokesperson join our team.”
Kannaway is the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products. Its Kannaway Sports division connects athletes with education and products.
“Playing baseball for 22 years can cause a lot of wear and tear, and I am so excited about what Kannaway CBD products have done for me,” said Gossage. “I’m really excited about where I was before CBD and where I am now, and I hope my story can help spread awareness on the benefits of CBD.”
“It is a privilege to partner with individuals and athletes such as Goose Gossage who share the same goal of increasing education and access to CBD in the U.S. and throughout the world,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “We hope this partnership will help people understand that CBD isn’t something that people take to get high, it’s something that they take to get healthy.”
Earlier this month, Medical Marijuana, Inc. announced that the company and its subsidiaries Kannaway, HempMeds®, HempMeds® Mexico and HempMeds® Brasil booked their largest-ever sales revenue quarter in their history in Q2 2018. Revenues exceeded $14.8 million, an increase of more than 40 percent over Q2 2017.
