Nick Lowery Promotes Kannalife™ Sciences

Former Kansas City Chiefs placekicker and Kannalife™ Sciences spokesperson Nick Lowery was interviewed this week on the RotoRob sports news and culture site. Lowery became a believer in the benefits of CBD after trying CBD oil products for himself. Now a vocal advocate for CBD, especially for current and former NFL players, Lowery has partnered with Kannalife™ Sciences to promote their research into creating a cannabinoid-based solution to the NFL’s concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) epidemic.

CTE is a neurological disorder linked to repeated blows to the head. The disease largely affects those who participate in contact sports, such as football. Kannalife™ Sciences is capitalizing on its licensing of the U.S. government’s patent on cannabinoids as neuroprotectants to develop its novel new drugs.
