Medical Marijuana, Inc. announced that NBA Hall of Famer Earl Monroe has joined its subsidiary Kannaway’s Sports Team.
Monroe, who played 13 seasons in the NBA, will help to spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes, former athletes and those looking to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
“What an honor that Earl Monroe is using our products,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “A true legend in his own right, we could not be prouder and are very happy that our products have made a positive difference for Earl.”
Monroe spent four years with the Baltimore Bullets and nine years with the New York Knicks. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990. He has received many community honors, including the Most Outstanding Model for American Youth Award, Harlem Professionals Inspirational Award, YMCA Citizenship Award and Big Apple Sportsman of the Year Award. He also won a Peabody Award for producing the documentary “Black Magic” as well as the 20-hour documentary film series “Basketball, A Love Story” for ESPN.
“I’ve been using Kannaway’s products for about a year now and I can notice that I feel overall less achy and better than before I started taking CBD products,” said Monroe. “If people are afraid of taking CBD I’d tell them to just start off slow and see what works for them.”
