“The athletic division of our company has always been particularly important to us because we’ve created one of the world’s purest CBD products that has been tested by a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved laboratory and some of the highest regulators in the world,” said Rick Brar, CEO & Chairman, Brains Bioceutical Corp. “We are happy to be pairing with Salita Promotions on an exciting and yet socially responsible boxing event at the historic Kronk Gym. The therapeutic effects of CBD continue to be explored, but we’re seeing promising results from studies around concussion recovery, and we think that’s especially important in contact sports like boxing and martial arts.”

Brar says that Brains Bioceutical Corp has reached a level of purity with their products where the world’s top athletes can reap the benefits of all-natural CBD without concern for violating WADA restrictions. “We’ve checked all the boxes of the regulations when it comes to the purity of our product. Our sports department has always been of the utmost importance because the athletes have the most to lose when it comes to doping regulations. We stand by our products being THC-free, as well as free of other banned substances, heavy metals and pesticides. We have brought together some of the brightest minds in the pharma and sports industries to achieve this level of purity for both our medicinal and wellness products.
“Brains Bioceutical Corp is on the cutting edge of CBD product manufacturing and research and I’m happy to bring them on as a sponsor of this historic event,” said Salita Promotions President, Dmitriy Salita. “The many benefits of CBD for fighters, other recovering athletes and many other treatments, are just beginning to be discovered.”
