Medical Marijuana, Inc. (MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that U.S. Paralympic athlete Samantha Tucker has joined its subsidiary Kannaway® as a company spokesperson to help spread awareness on the benefits of hemp cannabidiol (CBD) for athletes and active consumers.
“Samantha is exactly the type of representation that we need on our Kannaway Sports Team,” said Kannaway CEO Blake Schroeder. “She has defeated the odds and used an unfortunate accident to become a world-class athlete. We hope that our products help her continue to experience success throughout her career.”
Samantha is a U.S. Air Force Veteran and Paralympic athlete. She began shooting in USA Archery’s national events in 2015, starting with the AAE Arizona Cup Para World Ranking Event. Afterwards, she completed in the 2015 Parapan Am Games in Toronto and the World Archery Para Championships in Germany. She now shoots in the compound women’s open category for the U.S. Paralympic Team and competed in the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Paralympic Games.
“As an amputee and an archer, basically a one-handed individual, I put a lot of strain on my shoulders, arm and hand. Many pharmaceutical prescriptions just knock me out or decrease my cognitive function but CBD is a natural way for me to achieve high performance and attain the recovery time I need,” said Kannaway® Spokesperson Samantha Tucker. “I just signed up for the San Diego Triathlon in October and I wanted to try Kannaway’s CBD products to help me focus and maximize my performance. I use the Gold Oral Applicator in the morning and the Premium Full Spectrum Oral Applicator in the evening. I also enjoy using the Salve to protect my face.”
Kannaway® is the first hemp lifestyle network to legally offer hemp-based botanical CBD wellness products. Tucker joins the Kannaway® Sports division, which aims to spread awareness of the many important benefits of CBD by connecting current and former athletes with the education and products they need to help them live happier, more fulfilling lives.
“When you’re in pain, you’re never able to perform at your peak ability and you’re always living ‘less than’,” continued Tucker. “I only have one life and it’s not going to be ‘less than’ life.”
“Many people believe that CBD will get you high or that they will be looked down on for using it,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “We hope that onboarding athletes such as Samantha will help us dispel those myths and help change public opinion on this compound that has the potential to help so many.”
