 (Orlando, FL) April 20, 2022: Between work, kids, family and friends, life can feel overwhelmingly busy. We’re all trying to take care of life’s little details and special moments while still getting in a great workout and trying to keep ourselves healthy and happy. For one star former WWE athlete, Emanuel Rodriguez, known as Kalisto, the secret to keeping up with life and staying in peak physical performance is CBD. Now, he’s eager to share the secret to his workouts and quick recoveries with his own brand of CBD-enhanced products, Kanndela.


Unlike other brands, Kanndela focuses its product line on overall wellness. Among the more unique products offered by Kanndela is a chocolate-flavored whey protein powder infused with CBD. The protein powder makes it easy for anyone to incorporate CBD into their lifestyle. An easy to make protein shake consistently delivers 50 milligrams of CBD and 24 grams of protein per serving via top-quality whey concentrate, whey protein isolate, and hydrolyzed whey protein.


“As a world-class sports entertainer, road life and injuries were taking a toll on my body,” explains Emanuel Rodriguez, Former WWE Superstar Kalisto, and Founder of Kanndela. “I was always looking for ways to naturally recover. CBD transformed my workouts, it helped with my focus, recovery, and the fitness lifestyle. CBD was so transformative to my workout routine that I created my own line of CBD products that I use myself and I know works. As part of our product line, we created a one-of-a-kind CBD whey protein that combines the benefits of phytocannabinoids, and incorporates nutrition into an overall wellness regimen. CBD is a game-changer.”


Kanndela’s CBD products are safe and potent. All Kanndela hemp-derived goods have a consistent and dependable number of cannabinoids. Only US-sourced CBD is used to make each CBD-infused product. Each batch is third-party tested and certified. Along with CBD-infused protein power and tinctures, Kanndela offers CBD gummies that are vegan-friendly and come in a variety of delicious flavors including grape, blue raspberry, lemon, mango, and fruit punch. Each gummy offers 25 mg of CBD per piece.


“The name of the brand is Kanndela which means ‘to give light.’ It’s more than a name for us. It’s a philosophy. We discovered what the products can do for us and we want to share that positivity with others,” explains Rodriguez.
