June 12, 2019


Industry-leading CBD products take training to a new level as the Duchess of Sussex’s brother defeats first opponent

PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink: POTN) (“the Company”) through its wholly-owned subsidiary Diamond CBD, Inc. (“Diamond”) aided famed celebrity boxer Thomas “The Duke” Markle in his training regimen for his first-ever celebrity bout on Saturday, providing the newly-crowned champion with several of their CBD oils, gummies, and creams that he claims helped him reach peak performance. Markle, brother to the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, added the products to his routine in preparation for the fight, telling the ringside announcer afterward that Diamond CBD helped take his training to the next level.

The fight, which was all in good fun, almost didn’t happen, as Markle’s first opponent failed to show up. But with another contender ready to go, the Duchess of Sussex’s brother spent a wily two rounds bobbing and weaving before being declared the winner in the second round against his opponent, radio host Tim Kudgis.

“I feel really good, Diamond CBD really pulled me through this,” Markle said post-fight. “I wasn’t feeling very good before, the day before, and actually thinking about backing out a little bit but I took this product and it made a world of difference, and I would recommend [it] to anyone.”

Diamond CBD is no stranger to the boxing ring, having sponsored championship fighters across the globe. And the Company is no stranger to the spotlight either, having recently exhibited several new products at the 6th annual Cannabis World Congress and Exposition (CWCBExpo) in New York City. Their popular line of CBD tinctures and gummies, including their selection of CBD Dried Fruits, made a real splash at the show. Moreover, the Company has shown its potential for growth with its CBD Slushy machines and their CBD-infused chocolate snacks, Choco-Budz, a candy shaped like whole flower that comes in four delicious flavors.

“Helping Thomas Markle at this past weekend’s celebrity boxing match was great fun and a great opportunity for us to show off our products too,” said Kevin Hagen, CEO of PotNetwork Holding, Inc. “Going out to different expositions and putting our name out there really helps us to build brand awareness, which, in turn, helps us to solidify our standing in the marketplace.”
