SAN DIEGO, CA, July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands, and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil has established a new health and wellness-focused podcast PodioCast and, as a result, has been featured in several top news publications in Brazil such as Globo’s Galileu Magazine (pictured below), SportLife, and the Desobediência Produtiva podcast.
PodioCast is hosted by actress and presenter Rachel Apollonio, HempMeds® Brasil Executive Director Matheus Patelli, and seasoned journalist and HempMeds® Marketing Specialist Marcus Bruno. Each episode features interviews with athletes and medical professionals to talk about the wellness challenges and routines of top athletes and active consumers.
“The mission for our podcast is to help break the stigma of CBD and cannabis and educate people how they can incorporate it into their lives,” said HempMeds® Brasil Executive Director Matheus Patelli. “We’ve already been able to get exclusive interviews with a variety of influential X-Games winners, MMA and boxing world champions, and other Olympic medalists and these articles have been a great help for us to promote the podcast.”
In addition to the podcast, these articles talk about how the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its list of banned substances in 2018 and since then, more athletes, both professional and amateur, in Brazil have started to use CBD products, such as those offered by HempMeds®.
They also highlight how HempMeds® has been dedicated to educating patients and doctors on cannabidiol (CBD) since the inception of the company. HempMeds® education initiatives include online academic resources, in-person, and virtual medical training courses to train physicians about cannabinoid treatments and discuss the principles of the human endocannabinoid system, and sponsorships of global CBD and condition-specific seminars aimed at helping patients with legal guidelines, finding doctors, and financial support.
“We are happy to have pioneered the introduction of non-psychoactive cannabis to Brazil. Our hope is that enthusiasts all over Brazil tune into the podcast to learn more and play a part in our movement,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Blake Schroeder. “We hope that our customers see that HempMeds’ new podcast is a testament to our mission to provide free and informed access to CBD around the world.”
