SAN DIEGO, Jan. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that NFL veteran Bryan Barker has become a spokesperson for its subsidiary Kannaway® to help spread awareness on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
"We believe that our partnership with Bryan Barker will help us spread awareness about the wellness benefits of CBD," said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. "We look forward to sharing his story and hopefully encouraging others to consider including CBD in their lives."
Bryan Barker is a retired punter from the National Football League. Barker played for the St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins, and the Green Bay Packers during his 16-year professional career.
"I had never done a drug in my life and I had no interest in cannabis products," said Barker. "After learning more about the difference between hemp and marijuana, and then trying the Kannaway products myself, all of that changed. I now sleep much better and handle everyday tasks much easier."
It didn't take long for Barker to develop his daily CBD routine. In the morning, he starts his day with the Kannaway® Gold Premium Hemp Oil oral applicator. In the evening, he takes the Kannaway® Premium Hemp Oil oral applicator or the Kannaway® Pure Gold oral applicator. Throughout the day, Barker applies Kannaway® Salve as needed, rubbing it into his muscles and joints.
Kannaway® is the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products. The Kannaway® Sports division aims to spread awareness of the many important benefits CBD offers for professional and amateur athletes, connecting former NFL athletes with the education and products they need to help them live happier, more fulfilling lives.
"We're happy to see that more and more athletes are using our high-quality products and finding success with them," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "We hope that we can continue to create and distribute products that meet the needs of many consumers, including those who are active and are looking to improve their wellness."

Kannaway® currently hosts weekly online sales meetings and conferences across the United States, offering unique insight and opportunity to sales professionals who are desirous of becoming successful leaders in the sale and marketing of hemp-based botanical products.
