Medical Marijuana, Inc. recently announced that its subsidiary Kannaway® has become a member of the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA).
“We’re excited to be recognized as a leader in the European hemp industry,” said Kannaway Vice President of International Alex Grapov. “We look forward to working with the EIHA to help drive global policy changes regarding the legislation of hemp and CBD and help spread education on the potential wellness benefits of CBD.”
The EIHA is the only coalition for the industrial hemp sector in Europe. Its members, representing 31 different countries, are players in industrial hemp processing and distribution, car manufacturing, construction, food and feedstock, as well as the pharmaceutical sector. Research institutes and financial investors also help guide the EIHA’s activities. The organization lobbies for legislation surrounding hemp and CBD throughout the EU and organizes events to connect industry leaders.
Kannaway launched its European operations in 2018 with its Grand Opening Event in Prague. The company has hosted over a dozen events throughout the European Union, garnered more than 50,000 Brand Ambassadors and has begun selling products in many new markets and countries.
“Europe has shown us great potential for operational growth and we’re enthusiastic about the future of CBD there,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Working with the EIHA is a stepping-stone to connecting with a larger audience there and helping the CBD industry progress as a whole.”
