A groundbreaking panel will take place at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo), June 16, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The panel will provide a high-level and personal discussion of the benefits of CBD found in medical marijuana and sports related injuries, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) concussions.

Pro athletes from the NFL and NHL will provide frank insight on how legally using cannabis has helped them manage pain, become less reliant on prescription painkillers, and not affect their playing performance. This thought-leadership panel “CTE, Concussions and CBD;” will feature:

• Charlie Adams, NFL wide receiver who played for the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans
• Eben Britton, a NFL guard and tackle has played for Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears and currently is a free agent.
• Riley D. Cote is former professional ice hockey player (NHL) with the Philadelphia Flyers and is currently an assistant coach with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
• Nathan Ross "Nate" Jackson a former NFL wide receiver who played six seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Joining this high-level discussion will be Heather Jackson, CEO of Realm of Caring, a non-profit and advocacy group that provide support services and resources to those using cannabinoid products.

Taking place June 15-17, 2016 at the Javits Center in New York City, CWCBExpo NY is designed for those in the industry as well as for those who are just entering this multi-faceted growing market.
