7 months ago
We are excited to announce that Medicileaf, a CBD company based in Santa Rosa, California and founded in 2013, will be hitting the road with the Professional Pickleball Association tour (PPAtour.com/14 Locations) starting in 2021. All tournaments will be broadcast live on ESPN channels (ESPN2 & ESPN3) and each tournament will be viewable on demand. Medicileaf carries nearly 10 different products–creams, tinctures, topical sprays, and an all-new Sports+ salve designed for athletes looking for advanced body and muscle recovery. Medicileaf products are formulated to promote the wide range of benefits that CBD and other cannabinoids exert on the human body.
Medicileaf’s founders, Don Shaffer and his family, have spent many years experimenting with the holistic and wellness benefits of CBD, both during Don’s semi-professional soccer career and later when his father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Don has recognized the medicinal benefits of CBD and was able to help extend his father’s life for more than five years beyond doctors’ estimates. Hoping to further test what he had created, Don entered one of his CBD products in the Emerald Cup, a world-renown cannabis competition, where it placed as a finalist.
Medicileaf is the first CBD Company to introduce a vanguard technology called signets on all of their products. Signets are a blockchain-enabled QR platform that makes supply chains transparent, exposes counterfeits, and rewards customers for their loyalty. Medicileaf also boasts a customer retention rate of more than 90%, proving their claim that all their products are of the highest quality and offer real, identifiable results.
Learn more about Medicileaf’s products at www.medicileaf.com and check out their booth at PPA events during the 2021 season! In early 2020, Medicileaf opened a retail store in Santa Rosa named the “CBD Marketplace“. Due to COVID-19, the store hours have been limited to afternoons only 1 p.m.- 6 p.m. Come visit us at 3535 Industrial Drive, Unit A, in Santa Rosa and see what we have to offer!
