Two-Time Super Bowl Champ Leonard Marshall Joins Pharma GenRx
as Brand Ambassador
New York, N.Y., May 1, 2020-Pharma GenRx Founders Timothy Cherotti and Arben Kane announced today that legendary New York Giants defensive lineman and two-time Super Bowl champion Leonard Marshall has joined the CBD company as its Executive Vice President. Marshall will also serve as Brand Ambassador, representing Pharma GenRx at official events. “Leonard’s dedication to player health and brain safety is noble, moving, and inspiring,” said Cherotti. “As a company committed to helping others, Leonard’s mission to improve lives around the world through cannabinoid science is in perfect harmony with ours. He is the ultimate partner for Pharma GenRx, and we are ecstatic that he is joining our team as Executive Vice President and as a Brand Ambassador.”
Marshall has been a central figure for raising awareness of probable CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), with which he was diagnosed in 2013. This disease, which is caused by repeated head injuries like those regularly experienced playing contact sports, has become a central topic in recent years as more pro athletes are diagnosed with the condition. Marshall, who was active in pro sports from 1983 to 1994, is similarly outspoken regarding his consumption of Cannabidiol (CBD) to manage symptoms of CTE.
“We need to talk about CTE and its impact on players in youth and professional sports,” said the two-time Pro Bowl player. “I know many pro athletes with CTE symptoms who owe their wellness to CBD. Thanks to CBD, I have my life back, and so do so many other retired athletes who suffer with CTE.”
Noting Pharma GenRx’s commitment to high-level pharmaceutical-grade quality standards and use of technologies such as acid-resistant capsules, Marshall said that he is “honored” to join a team of committed and knowledgeable scientific professionals. “Especially during times of heightened stress and uncertainty, many are looking for safe ways to find relief, and Pharma GenRx provides just that through its line of CBD products,” Marshall said. “I use Pharma GenRx’s Oral Capsules and Gummies, and I also enjoy using the Freeze Muscle Rub when I’m feeling sore.”
In addition to his position with Pharma GenRx, Marshall is a brand ambassador for the Concussion Legacy Foundation, an Athlete Ambassador for advocacy organization Athletes For Care, a benefactor
of the Nat King Cole Foundation, and heads the Leonard Marshall Foundation, which advocates for inclusive safety measures on college campuses. “By partnering with Pharma GenRx, I hope to bring next-level cannabis therapeutics to more people in need, no matter how or why they use CBD,” Marshall said.
