"We are thrilled that Kannaway is the exclusive distributor of KannaKick™," states Jeff Rogers, CEO of Kannaway, LLC. "Our network has embraced the message of hemp's reemergence in America and we are excited to be the first to market CBD-rich hemp oil products through our rapidly growing network of Brand Ambassadors."
KannaKick™ has 5mg of CBD-rich hemp oil, 100mg of caffeine (slightly more than one cup of coffee), and B vitamins in each chew. Each KannaKick™ package contains four chews. With the consistency of taffy, the KannaKick™ chews are packed with flavor.
"Launching KannaKick™ during Kannaway's convention held during the historic '420 weekend' in Colorado was extremely appropriate," continues Rogers. "Kannaway is proud to play an active role in the resurgence of hemp oil products in the U.S. The unique hemp oil products that Kannaway markets happen to be super concentrated in the highly sought out natural component of hemp: CBD. We have been conveying to our network of Brand Ambassadors that, despite what the mainstream news is reporting, there is an abundance of CBD-rich hemp oil in the U.S. and you don't have to move to Colorado to get it. Our rapidly expanding network of Brand Ambassadors is making history as the first to market and distribute the KannaKick™ line."
The award winning CBD-rich hemp oil used in the KannaKick™ manufacturing process is sourced from HempMeds by HempWire, LLC, a Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink: MJNA) joint venture with LiveWire Ergogenics, Inc. (OTCQB:LVVV) ("LiveWire").
"We believe the introduction of this product to the world through Kannaway is an historic moment, and we are thrilled to be a part of it," stated Bill Hodson, CEO of LiveWire. "We have been developing these in partnership with MJNA for several months. As excited as we are to launch this product, we're even more excited about the future CBD-rich functional food. Kannaway has done an exceptional job so far, and they're just getting started."
Functional foods are growing exponentially in popularity. Research indicates that the global market value for functional food will be $221.58bn in 2014.
