Panacea Partners with Mendi to ‘Level the Playing Field’ Using Hemp Products

Mendi’s Pro Line which includes a CBD Salve Stick, CBD Gel Capsules, and CBD Gummies

Panacea’s CBD makes its way into the world of athletics with this strategic pairing.

Panacea has gone above and beyond with our Mendi product development and priming us as we enter the CBD market. Together, the sky is the limit.”

— Rachael Rapinoe, Mendi CEO

GOLDEN, CO, UNITED STATES, August 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Panacea Life Sciences has made good on its promise to expand into markets beyond the medical field, and it seems as though their opportunities are endless. The rapid growth and continued improvement and creation of hemp products puts Panacea at the top of the list when companies across the nation are looking to incorporate CBD into their own products and company’s identity. This was the exact thing that brought the Portland, Oregon-based sports company, Mendi, to the Golden foothills of Colorado.

Mendi’s CEO, Rachael Rapinoe, grew up entrenched in the sports world. She touts impressive accolades like winning an NCAA National Championship with the University of Portland’s Women’s Soccer Team (2005), playing professionally in Europe, and eventually building Rapinoe SC — a soccer performance training company & lifestyle apparel brand — with her twin, US Soccer star sister, Megan Rapinoe. In fact, it would seem that all of the team members at Mendi are MVPs in their own right, which has made the pursuit of a collaborative, scientifically-driven, quality-focused company that much more important.

Mendi’s mission is to build a brighter future for sports by leveling the playing field for how athletes and active people can stay at top performance. With the help of Panacea Life Sciences, Mendi is creating a line of the healthiest and most trusted recovery tools possible. They put a huge emphasis on simplicity, saying that “greatness doesn’t have to be complicated”, which echoes Panacea’s standards of making sure to only use 100% natural ingredients and sourcing premium strains of hemp to derive the highest quality CBD. It felt like fate that Panacea and Mendi would meet, but their partnership looks to be a much more powerful destiny. "We chose to work with Panacea first and foremost because they're good people. Secondly, they're one of the best at manufacturing CBD derived products. We pride ourselves in being seasoned entrepreneurs in the sports and cannabis industries, so we're looking for the same qualities in our partners. Panacea has gone above and beyond with our product development and priming us as we enter the market. They are not only our production partners but have also given us invaluable sales and distribution knowledge. Together, the sky is the limit", contends Rapinoe. From the get-go, their collaboration has been electric and steadfast, allowing for a much-anticipated launch of their Mendi Pro Line line of 100% isolate hemp-derived CBD products on Friday, August 23rd. The Pro Line consists of a CBD Salve Stick, Gel Capsules, and Gummies.

This official marriage between the two companies is exciting for both sides, but Panacea is most elated that they are breaking into a field where athletes of all levels, genders, ages, and backgrounds will benefit from this relatively new science of using CBD for relief and recovery. Nick Cavarra, Panacea’s Vice President of Sales, shares, “Panacea is well suited to aide in the success of today’s athlete at every level. Our focus on pain relief, anxiety, and improved sleep align perfectly with the goals and purpose of Mendi”.

Panacea Life Sciences earned the Westword’s 2019 Reader’s Choice ‘Best of Denver’ awards for the ‘Best Hemp Company’ as well as the ‘Best CBD-Infused Product’.

Founded in 2017, the Golden, Colorado-based company was created with customers’ health and well-being as a priority in order to serve as a global platform for the reintroduction of hemp-based therapeutics into mainstream lifestyles. Panacea products include softgels, fast-dissolving sublingual tablets, salves, lotions, tinctures, and gummies, and new products are constantly in the works. Learn more and place an order at https://panacealife.com/.

The Scientology Information Center Presents One of the Greatest Disappearing Acts Ever

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre performing the science-fiction story, “The Dangerous Dimension”. Their upcoming performance, “The Professor Was a Thief” will take place on August 24, 2019, starting 6:30pm at the Scientology Information Center.

Attend the Radio Theatre Production of “The Professor Was A Thief” by L. Ron Hubbard

If you like unique entertainment and enjoy the ‘old-time radio show’ flair, you’re in for a treat!”

— Amber Skjelset, manager Scientology Info Center

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The talented L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre will deliver an old-time radio-style performance of the adrenaline-fueled sci-fi story, The Professor Was a Thief. It will be held at the Scientology Information Center 500 Cleveland Street, downtown Clearwater, on Saturday, August 24th starting at 6:30 pm. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be served.

In the story, The Professor Was a Thief, famous landmarks across New York City are disappearing. The Empire State Building has vanished into thin air. Gone, too, are Grant’s Tomb and Grand Central Station. No one seems to have the answers, and hysteria is breaking out across the city. It’s up to a grizzled old newspaper reporter known as “Pop” to get to the bottom of the vanishing buildings, before the entire city disappears, along with his job. The story was first published in the February 1940 issue of Astounding Science Fiction magazine.

While The Professor was a Thief is a fictional story, L. Ron Hubbard was no stranger to the hustle and bustle of New York City. As a matter of fact, between 1934 and 1936, Mr. Hubbard lived in a Greenwich Village basement apartment as a professional writer, just over 10 miles away from the famous landmarks he mentions in the story. Often called by the locals, “The Village,” was an artists' haven and the "Bohemian capital” for many decades.

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine actors, costumes, lighting and sound effects to bring the exciting pulp-fiction stories written by L. Ron Hubbard to life.

“This is the theatre’s second sci-fi story performance at the Information Center,” said Amber Skjelset, the center’s manager. “If you like unique entertainment and enjoy the ‘old-time radio show’ flair, you’re in for a treat!”

All are welcome but seating is limited. To reserve seats or to learn more about the event, contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at 727-467-6966 or amber@cos.flag.org.

L. Ron Hubbard:

L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers of the 20th century. Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines—often as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, Mr. Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.

The Scientology Information Center:

The Scientology Information Center, located in the Historic Clearwater Building in downtown Clearwater, opened on July 11, 2015, and currently houses a gallery of audiovisual displays with some 400 videos. The Center is open to all and provides a self-guided tour showing basic Scientology beliefs, Churches around the world, ongoing social programs and the life of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology's founder. The Center offers tours for the broad public and civic leaders; holds concerts, theatrical performances, and receptions for the community; and opens up the use of its conference room to social, civic and non-profit groups.

Foundation for a Drug-Free World Urges Parents to Educate Themselves about Marijuana and its Mind-Altering Drug THC

Kids are encouraged to sign the Drug-Free Pledge in the Foundation for a Drug-Free World information center in downtown Clearwater.

The most common overdose incidents in children occur when the drug has been combined with food in an "edible" form of marijuana. ”

— Children's Hospital Colorado

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the push from marijuana advocates to legalize marijuana in Florida, FDFW is urging parents to find out the facts and the effects of this mind-altering drug and concerned mothers and volunteers of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) distributed hundreds of the “Truth About Marijuana” information booklets to other parents this past weekend in Clearwater.

“THC is the drug in marijuana that causes a high. A ‘God-given’ marijuana plant contains about 1-2% THC,” said Joanna Young, a mother and founder of Drug Addiction Help Line, who has helped educate hundreds of parents about drugs. “Marijuana is now being genetically modified by man to contain 12-25% THC and sometimes higher, this is far from God-given and has resulted in increased number of cases of psychosis in marijuana users.”

In March 2019, emergency room records from UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital showed a three-fold increase in marijuana cases since the state first allowed recreational marijuana in January 2014. ER visits for marijuana-caused symptoms include repeated vomiting, racing heart and psychotic episodes. [i]

Andrew Monte of UC Health said, “… with marijuana’s increased availability and higher THC concentrations, we may be seeing more adverse drug reactions.”

Another recent study found that people who smoked strong marijuana on a daily basis were three times more likely to be diagnosed with psychosis compared with people who never used the drug. Intoxication and heart problems were other common complaints in the Colorado hospital study.[ii]

“Marijuana edibles, which include candies, chocolate, cookies and chips (just to name a few) very often have high THC content and are packaged to resemble sweets familiar to kids, which is extremely dangerous and irresponsible. Children have been hospitalized from THC edibles.” Ms. Young said.

Information from the Children’s Hospital Colorado website states:

“The most common overdose incidents in children occur when the drug has been combined with food in an "edible" form of marijuana. This is because marijuana ingested in this manner can have a stronger and prolonged effect, especially in children under the age of 12 years old.

“In these instances, kids mistake ‘edible’ marijuana (like gummy bears, brownies, lollipops, etc.) for regular food and eat it unknowingly. Small children are at higher risk based on their size and weight. Because edible products have very high amounts of marijuana, the symptoms are more severe on a small child. Many young children who consume marijuana edibles require hospital admission due to the severity of their symptoms.”

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World urges the public to get the real facts and not blindly follow what the “drug pushers” who will benefit from the users, have to say.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World provides free education materials to anyone. Their materials include 14 different information booklets on the most commonly abused drugs and a documentary DVD: “Real People Real Stories.” To get more information, copies of the booklets or the documentary DVD, visit www.drugfreeworld.org
