SAN DIEGO, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that its subsidiary Kannaway®, the first hemp lifestyle network to offer cannabidiol (CBD) hemp botanical products, will now sell Hempy’s® responsibly sourced Hemp Leggings.
“We are thrilled to begin selling Hempy’s fashionable, durable and sustainably made leggings,” said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. “Athleisure and hemp are two major trends in today’s society and we feel confident that this product will capture the attention of both markets.”
Hempy’s® Hemp Leggings are a blend of 53 percent hemp, 43 percent cotton and four percent spandex. They’re made with hemp instead of artificial fibers to offer a more durable alternative fabric that is softer, ethically made and environmentally friendly.
Hemp is the strongest natural fiber on the planet. It is 98 percent UV resistant and repels both bacteria and dust. Studies have shown that hemp fashion eliminates more carbon in the soil than is released during its manufacturing process, and therefore is deemed carbon negative.
“Hemp is a versatile crop with over 50,000 recorded uses but the use of hemp as a textile has been largely neglected for decades,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “We are excited to capture the re-emerging hemp clothing market and continue to use the Kannaway distribution network to bring Hempy’s Hemp Leggings to market.”
Shop the entire line of Hempy’s® hemp clothing and accessories in the Kannaway® online store.
Hempy’s®, founded in 1995, is one of the oldest hemp goods manufacturing companies in the United States. It has grown into one of the best known and most admired hemp brands in the country. Hempy’s® is known both domestically and internationally for its quality, long lasting, well-made goods.
