21 Jun HempMeds® Takes to the Road to Promote the Benefits of CBD Hemp Oil
The HempMeds® team has just returned from a whirlwind East Coast trip that included important cannabis and wellness events in Florida and New York.
First, our team headed to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, for the Southeast Cannabis Conference and Expo (SCCE) from June 9-11. There, our representatives met with medical marijuana patients, industry employees, entrepreneurs and business owners, and even health officials to demonstrate firsthand the benefits of HempMeds® CBD hemp oil products.
HempMeds® was well represented throughout the SCCE, with members of the HempMeds® family speaking at the Florida event.
First, Raul Elizalde took the stage to share his emotional experience as the father of a special needs daughter and how he was drawn into the medical cannabis community after he founded the Por Grace Foundation to assist families in a similar situation as his own.
Raul is a widely respected activist and supporter of cannabis initiatives in Mexico who has been publicly thanked by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto for his efforts to help pass a bill that authorizes the use of medical cannabis in the country.
Then Dr. Stuart Titus took the stage as the event’s keynote speaker on the event’s final day. With first-hand experience with the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids, Dr. Titus discussed the extensive beneficial properties cannabis can provide through its interaction with the human body’s native endocannabinoid system.
After completing the event in Florida, the team turned north to participate in the 4th Annual Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBE).
Held at New York’s famous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the CWCBE focuses on the budding potential of the cannabis industry in New York and on a national level, and like the SCCE in Florida, the event attracts cannabis entrepreneurs, industry leaders, medical experts, business owners, investors, and medical marijuana patients from New York and around the world.
Dr. Titus also spoke at the event in New York with a presentation titled “Current Medical Research on CBD”. Tapping into his knowledge of the cannabis plant and its use therapeutically, Dr. Titus informed attendees about the many breakthroughs that have come in our understanding of cannabinoids like CBD and how they can be used to target certain indications.
HempMeds® also welcomed CBD advocates Penny Howard, founder of Hope4Harper, her daughter Lilly, and Craig Pagano, the father of a special needs daughter, to our booth, giving those at the event the unique opportunity to chat with these families about their positive experiences using CBD.
Following this busy week on the road, our HempMeds® specialists are back in the office following up with everyone we met at the events and answering any questions you may have.
