Zajaros was introduced to Cannakids a year ago, and since has a developed an overwhelming passion and drive to do whatever he can to assist Cannakids in marketing it’s brand both nationally and internationally in an effort to cement Cannakids as the most recognized and respected brand in Medical Marijuana industry. “A year ago I had the slightest knowledge of the true potential of what Medical Marijuana can do. As of today, I’ve actually seen life changing results in patients with autism to epilepsy and from cancer to muscular sclerosis. Rarely do opportunities come along where you can be on the right side of history and truly change and effect lives. This is my opportunity and one that I couldn’t be more passionate about.”
