The new company will be called LenitivLabs, and will focus on high-quality medical marijuana products. Montel Williams, a decorated former Naval Officer, and a former television host, is a long-time advocate for the use of medical marijuana. In 1999 he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and has used marijuana to manage his chronic pain.

“With the issue of full legalization dominating the conversation, it’s critical not to forget patients who have specific needs with respect to cannabis, including strains that might be less profitable in the marketplace.”
