In this episode of the Mandatory Fun podcast, Blake speaks with Army veteran turned co-founder and CEO of RMR Laboratories, Mike Lui, about his over-the-counter cannabis pharmaceutical company.
RMR Laboratories produces cannabinoid oil that's applied as a topical cream to relieve pain and other medical ailments.
Mike served in the Army for eight-years and deployed to Iraq where he led teams that helped rebuild the country by setting up its first democratic elections.
Even our WATM podcast producer O.V. (who suffers from arthritis in his knees) tried out the CBD lotion.
"It tingles," O.V. humorously states. "But [my knee] feels better."
