DENVER, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- United Cannabis Corporation (OTCBB: CNAB) (the "Company" or "United Cannabis") announced today that The Independent Physicians Association of America has selected the Company's CBD products for endorsement to and by its membership.
The IPA Association of America (TIPAAA) is the leading trade association serving Independent/Integrated Physician Associations. Founded in 1994, TIPAAA provides a wide range of products, services, and educational programs to help its affiliates operate effectively and successfully. The growing network currently includes over 650 Associations with chapters in 39 states and more than 300,000 affiliated physicians.
Clifton Lambreth, the Company Chief Marketing Officer, commented on the announcement, "An endorsement from any medical organization for a CBD company is huge; for a national association like TIPAAA to choose to partner with United Cannabis - it's an industry first - and very exciting."
Lambreth continued, "TIPAAA's membership represents the sweet spot for our products. Independent physicians generally have greater autonomy with regard to patient care and we have found them quite receptive to recommending CBD as an effective therapy protocol. The ability to offer our Prana products through the TIPAAA network provides a tremendous opportunity for us to expand our market."
Earnie Blackmon, Chief Executive Officer of United Cannabis, added, "We are proud to receive this endorsement. Partnering with powerful organizations like TIPAAA and NuAxess, the independent insurance provider we signed with in September, is a key strategic initiative for United Cannabis in 2020 and going forward, and we look forward to working with their members to accelerate the availability of our CBD products to patients across the country."
