Phivida CEO John Belfontaine states; “we are proud to welcome Malia to the Phivida Team as our Lead Brand Ambassador. Malia embodies the spirit of Phivida as evidenced through her dedication to her sport, her ideals, and to her community.

Phivida seeks to equip, empower and educate professional athletes, and active professionals with the option of using CBD-Hemp oil extract as an alternative to opiate-based pain killers to; optimize daily performance, treat chronic pain and inflammation-based conditions and to recover from training, and sports related injuries.

On January 1st 2018 the World Anti-Doping Agencies (WADA) officially removed cannabidiol (CBD) from their prohibited substances list. Phivida’s Nano-CBD™ is a natural opiate replacement therapy now available to athletes around the world, for the first time in the history of competitive sports. WADA’s decision comes in contrast to a rising global opiate epidemic, and the increased use of pain killers within professional and amateur sport.
