Medical Marijuana, Inc., the first publicly traded cannabis company in the US, recently announced that former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman and Super Bowl champion Derek Kennard has joined the Sports Division of its subsidiary Kannaway®, the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products.
As a spokesperson for the company, Kennard will help spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
“We look forward to working with Derek Kennard to continue our goal of spreading awareness and increasing public education about the health benefits of CBD,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “Derek is just one of many who have seen amazing health results while using CBD oil and we aim to use his story to inspire others.”
Kennard joins former NFL players Nick Lowery and Christian Okoye, Olympian Amy Van Dyken and MLB Hall of Famer Goose Gossage in the Kannaway Sports Division, which connects athletes with education and products.
“CBD oil allows me to get along with my day and have an improved quality of life,” said Kennard. “If someone was skeptical about taking CBD, I’d tell them that it’s not marijuana. It’s a great safe and natural alternative and I am thankful that these are high-quality products.”
