"Kannaway's explosive entry into the network marketing industry has created quite the 'buzz,'" says Jeff Rogers, CEO of Kannaway. "During the Kannaway convention in Denver last month, we introduced the world's first CBD-rich hemp oil functional food energy chew, KannaKick™, and the world's first CBD-rich hemp oil anti-aging luxury product line, Cannabis Beauty DEFINED™. We are extremely pleased to announce that yet another new, innovative CBD-rich hemp oil product will be unveiled in Atlanta."
Rogers continues, "The Founding Fathers of this country were hemp farmers. Early Americans believed so much in hemp that it was illegal not to farm the crop for a time. Fast forward to today and hemp is becoming wildly popular again, with an incredible variety of hemp products in high demand thanks to informed consumers. We welcome those who are interested in one of the hottest network marketing business opportunities to join us, learn more about our exclusive hemp lifestyle products, and determine if this robust sales model is a fit for them."
During the Atlanta Kannaway Convention, the Company will unveil a new retail storefront marketing resource that will enable its Brand Ambassadors to sign up wholesale accounts like convenience stores and smoke shops as part of their "downline."
"This is a pivotal time in the history of our country," continues Rogers. "We are proud that the 'Kannaway Nation' is positioned to be a driving force to set the record straight on the truth about hemp. We will educate thousands about the plant's unique ability to create more than 25,000 products, and we firmly believe that we will positively transform the domestic economy. Kannaway is a 'movement with a pay plan' and we encourage the public to see how they can become involved at our convention in Atlanta."
