The 5th Annual Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE) returns to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City for three days of cannabis education, business networking, and advocacy.

The CWCBE is scheduled to take place from May 31 – June 2, 2018. Representatives from Medical Marijuana, Inc. companies HempMeds® and Kannaway will be on hand at this important yearly cannabis event to raise awareness for the role CBD plays in the larger medical marijuana industry.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® will host a booth on the event’s expo floor. There the company’s knowledgeable team CBD experts will be demonstrating CBD products from popular brands like Dixie Botanicals® and Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) for the event’s attendees and answering questions about hemp, CBD, and the benefits of our products.

Business owners and cannabis entrepreneurs can also speak with our team of CBD experts to learn first hand how wholesale, bulk, and white label CBD can benefit you or your business. There is no easier way to break into the booming CBD industry than with wholesale products from Medical Marijuana, Inc. We invite all CWCBE attendees to come visit the HempMeds® team at booth #100 anytime during the event.

CBD expertsDr. Stuart Titus to Share Expertise on the Endocannabinoid System

Representatives of the Medical Marijuana, Inc. family of companies will also participate in a trio of the CWCBE’s informational lectures and panels to help inform attendees on the science behind cannabis, detail the benefits of CBD, and reveal their personal experiences with CBD products.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus will speak first on medical cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) research on May 31 at 12:00 p.m. in room #1A11. His talk, titled “Cannabis as Medicine”, will cover the science behind cannabinoids and their therapeutic effects, including recent research efforts into cannabis for a range of medical conditions.

“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.”

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™ Sciences, a Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company focusing on the creation of novel new pharmaceutical products for the treatment of neurological conditions.

CBD for AthletesCBD for Athletes

HempMeds® spokesperson and UFC fighter Liz Carmouche will also be participating in an athlete’s 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 the “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.  

Joining Carmouche on the sports centric panel will be former NFL Pro Bowler Christian Okoye. Nicknamed the “Nigerian Nightmare” for his punishing running style as a fullback, Okoye retired after six seasons as the Kansas City Chiefs all-time rushing leader. Okoye’s time in the NFL wore on his body, causing him to rely heavily on prescription medications.

Okoye recently came out in support of CBD as an alternative after being introduced to CBD products by former teammate Nick Lowery. Like Carmouche, Okoye was hesitant at first because he associated CBD with marijuana in his mind. After adding CBD products to his daily routine, Okoye partnered with Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company Kannaway as a spokesperson to raise awareness for the advantages of CBD for current and former athletes like his fellow NFL players.
