SAN DIEGO, June 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kannaway, LLC, the first hemp lifestyle network marketing company to offer cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp botanical products, was featured in viral, global coverage about the company's innovative product offerings during the 1st annual Chicago Cannabis Conference. The event hosted thousands in the Chicago metro region and conference organizers reported ticket buyers as far away as Canada and Arizona.
"The Chicago Cannabis Conference was a rare opportunity for Kannaway to support not only the introduction of ground-breaking legislation in Illinois, but also the ongoing grassroots efforts by MyCompassion.org that created the foundation for the cannabis awakening," states Christopher Hussey, Chief Marketing Officer of Kannaway.
Times are changing and global media outlets such as USA Today, the AFP and MSN News are pointing their cameras at the rapidly emerging cannabis industry. Media outlets showed a significant amount of interest in the rapid growth in sales and revenue that the industry is showing on the record books. Media covering the event included the AFP that quoted Hussey as saying: "Today, here, at the Cannabis Conference, we are seeing investors. We are seeing people with hundreds of millions of dollars who are here going, 'OK, ten years ago I would never have put my money here. Today, I am at a cannabis conference thinking about HOW do I put my money here?'"
From the Kannaway exhibit, WHDT World News anchor and Executive Producer, Gary S. Franchi Jr. featured his experience using a vaporizer pen called HempVĀP™. Franchi was joined by Jeff Rogers, CEO of Kannaway and Christoper Hussey, Chief Marketing Officer of Kannaway. Hussey showed that the tip of the patented HempVĀP™ pen doubles as a smart device stylus and simply states, "It is designed for your life."
Rogers showcased the Cannabis Beauty DEFINED™ product line stating that the CBD-infused luxury anti-aging products are, "Thirteenth century bi-bong™, which were only available for thousands of years to the Korean royal family. Now we have that product and we think it is the finest anti-aging line in the world."
Other products displayed by Kannaway™ during the interview included KannaKick™ energy chew squares in five flavors: citrus, chocolate, ice, cinnamon and green apple. Each chew square contains10mg of caffeine in each piece (about the same as a cup of coffee), making this an extremely travel-friendly functional food energy product.

Greeting hundreds of visitors to the Kannaway Chicago meeting, were the "Bad Boys of CBD" as featured on billboards throughout the Chicago metro area: UFC professional athlete Brandon Vera and IFBB professional bodybuilder Toney "The X Man" Freeman.
Rogers continues, "We thank MyCompassion.org for organizing the Chicago Cannabis Conference and for the opportunity for Kannaway to participate as a sponsor during Hemp History Week. As hemp makes a fast track back into the domestic economy, sponsoring the Chicago Cannabis Conference allowed thousands of attendees to visit with us at our exhibit. Hundreds were also able to see a new and exciting network marketing business opportunity. Due to the significant interest from the mainstream news media, the message that Kannaway is a 'movement with a pay plan' has now expanded significantly online."
