31 May HempMeds to Participate in New York’s Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo
One of the most significant cannabis events of the year is scheduled to take place in New York City from May 31 – June 2, 2018. The 5th Annual Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE) returns to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for three days of cannabis education, business networking, and advocacy.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® will have a booth on the event’s expo floor where the company’s team will be demonstrating CBD products from popular brands like Dixie Botanicals® and Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) and answering questions your questions one-on-one. Business owners and cannabis entrepreneur can speak with our CBD experts to learn first hand how wholesale bulk and white label CBD can benefit you or your business. We invite all CWCBE attendees to come visit the HempMeds® team at booth #100.
Representatives of the Medical Marijuana, Inc. family of companies will participate in a trio of the CWCBE’s informational lectures and panels.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus will speak on medical cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) research on May 31 at 12:00 p.m. in room #1A11. His lecture, titled “Cannabis as Medicine” will cover the science behind cannabinoids and their therapeutic effects, including recent research into cannabis for a range of medical conditions.
Dr. Titus will also be speaking on a panel titled “Investing in Publicly Traded Cannabis Companies” on June 1 at 2:00 p.m. in room #1A16. Dr. Titus will be joined on this panel by Dean Petkanas, CEO of Kannalife™ Science, a Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company.
“I am looking forward to the opportunity to spread education on cannabis and specifically CBD so that we can begin to clear up some misconceptions and further cannabis research,” said Dr. Titus. “With the first-ever import permits for Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) from the governments of Mexico, Brazil and Paraguay, there is clearly an expanding global market for hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products and plan to continue to be leaders in the industry.”
HempMeds® spokesperson and first female UFC fighter Liz Carmouche will also be participating in a panel at the CWCBE. Carmouche is the UFC’s first openly-gay fighter, as well as the UFC’s most decorated ex-military fighter.
Carmouche will speak on an “Athlete Patient Panel” on June 2 at 10:00 a.m. in room #1A16. Skeptical at first about the benefits of CBD, Carmouche is now a vocal advocate of how CBD helps her train harder and recover faster. She is currently training for her upcoming UFC fight against Jennifer Maia on July 14, in UFC Fight Night 133.
HempMeds® is dedicated to educating the public about the role of CBD in the cannabis conversation. Be sure to come meet our experienced team this weekend in New York and learn more about the myriad of benefits available from our award-winning products.
