On the call, Dr. Titus detailed his extensive background in Wall Street finance with a track record of raising billions in capital for municipalities and both private and public corporations around the USA. Dr. Titus also has experience in integrative medicine as a clinician with several medical facilities in the Carolinas. Having worked closely for four years with the management group that acquired MJNA from its founders, Dr. Titus most recently led General Hemp, the originators of Kannaway.
"We look forward to continued growth of the global industrial hemp business," states Stuart Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "Most of MJNA's portfolio companies and investments, including Kannaway, are focused on outreach through education and awareness of industrial hemp's many practical uses. We are both very proud of and thrilled at the progress that these companies have achieved to date."
Dr. Titus continues, "All of our portfolio companies are pioneers in the rapidly growing global cannabis industry. Companies like Kannaway will continue to introduce new everyday use consumer products that include all-natural hemp CBD oil to benefit customers of their Brand Ambassadors and marketing agents. These 'category creator' products are essential to fueling a continuation of the monumental growth and success that Kannaway has experienced in the network marketing industry.
