Cannabis, Wellness, And The Professional Athlete Workshop Presented At CWCBExpo Boston

NEW JERSEY: The newly formed 501c3 non-profit Athletes For Care and C3 Global Biosciences are hosting an educational workshop focused on the active lifestyle cannabis user at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) in Boston on October 4th at the John B. Hynes Convention Center.  CWCBExpo Boston, Oct. 4-6, is the leading business trade show and conference for the medical marijuana, legalized recreational marijuana and industrial hemp industries.

The workshop, Cannabis, Wellness and the Professional Athlete, will expand upon the notion of cannabis as a medicine or therapy to explore cannabis as a general health and wellness supplement for the active lifestyle.  Representing Athletes For Care at the event will be Cliff Robinson of the NBA, UFC-legend Frank Shamrock, NHL tough guys Darren McCarty and Riley Cote, and former NFL players Eben Britton and Nate Jackson.

This all-day workshop will offer attendees the exclusive opportunity to get up close and personal with several of the pro athletes who are leading the cannabis-in-sports movement.  This jam-packed day will include two educational panels featuring the representatives from Athletes For Care along with industry experts and medical professionals.

The first panel discussion will examine “Performance Training Concepts Incorporating Cannabis,” with the second panel focusing on “Leveraging the Power of Influencer Marketing.”  The day’s activities will also include a Q&A with the audience following each panel discussion, as well as revealing “One-on-One” conversations with former pro athletes discussing the role of cannabis in their sport, their career, and their life.

“We are excited to be part of CWCBExpo Boston and to share with attendees the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plants.  This workshop will take a deep dive into how all active lifestyles and performance athletes can benefit from cannabis as well as create a successful business that caters to this growing demographic,” said Ryan Kingsbury from Athletes for Care.

CWCBExpo Boston will also present its largest conference program to date (Oct. 5-6) made up of curated panel presentations, lectures, and interactive discussions, covering the main sectors of the cannabis industry: Science & Research, Cultivation, Processing, Sales, Taxes & Finances, Investments, Advocacy, and Law & Regulations. The CWCBExpo Boston will also offer headlining Keynote speaker Reverend Al Sharpton, additional add-on workshops on Oct. 4th, and an exhibit floor featuring the latest cannabis innovations and services.

DECODE Cannabis, the New Civil Rights Movement for Cannabis Legalization and Inclusion Continues National Coast-to-Coast Roll-Out

In June at the CWCBExpo NY, Rev. Sharpton spoke publicly for the first time in a powerful Keynote Address about the disproportionate number of marijuana arrests of people of color in this country, including the unintended or intended consequences of national marijuana laws, as well as the need for greater inclusion of underrepresented communities in the fast-growing cannabis industry, which is expected to exceed $20 billion in 2020.

Also as part of Rev. Sharpton’s Keynote at CWCBExpo NY, was the launch of DECODE Cannabis Education Fund (DECODE) a national mobilization campaign to educate Americans on the social benefits of a federal mandate removing cannabis from the Schedule I.

The CWCBExpo LA event will also host the inaugural DECODE Cannabis Education Fund Awards Gala on Wednesday, September 13 and a stakeholders breakfast on Thursday, September 14, before Rev. Sharpton’s Keynote Address.  Both events will be attended by politicians, celebrities, and cannabis influencers supportive of federal legalization, decriminalization, and expanding inclusionary opportunities for all.

Rev. Sharpton founded the National Action Network (NAN) in 1991 and is President of the not-for-profit civil rights organization with over 100 chapters nationwide, including a Washington, DC Bureau and regional offices across the US.

As one of the nation’s most-renowned civil rights leaders, Rev Sharpton has been praised by President Barack Obama as “the voice of the voiceless and a champion for the downtrodden.”  Rev. Al Sharpton also hosts a daily radio show as well as a national cable news television show, and he is an established author.

“CWCBExpo remains committed to DECODE and looks forward to Rev. Sharpton continuing to share his powerful voice and insight on this at our Los Angeles and Boston events.  We are fully supportive of DECODE’s mission and its efforts to ensure equality and inclusion for all,” said Christine Ianuzzi, Managing Partner, CWCBExpo.
