CFN Media: MJNA and the NFL? Cannabinoids as Neuroprotectants

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2016) - CFN Media Group, the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, takes a look at the research being done by Kannalife Sciences, one of Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s (OTC PINK: MJNA) portfolio investment companies, into the neuroprotectant properties of cannabinoids (CBDs).

Sports Illustrated recently published an article focused on Kannalife's research on the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD in cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Several days later, the NFL announced the retirement of the league's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Elliot Pellman, who notoriously denied any connection between head trauma and brain diseases in the face of scientific evidence.

In this article, CannabisFN.com takes a look at the retirement decision and why the NFL may be incentivized to hire someone open to medical cannabis treatment options and how Medical Marijuana Inc. could be well positioned to capitalize on such a move.
