CBD in Russia

Good afternoon! I was forced to write my story by one unpleasant circumstance. In the USA, there is such a well-known company called CANNAWAY; I recently found out that this company has opened a branch in Russia. [see here: https://investors.medicalmarijuanainc.com/medical-marijuana-inc-subsidiary-kannaway-expands-into-russia-kazakhstan-and-kyrgyzstan/

[Company website in Russia: https://mycannaway.ru/product/pure-gold-kannaway-30ml/]

I live in Russia and wanted to buy CBD oil for my mother, who has arthritis. When I called this company, the phones from the website did not answer, their e-mail was also silent. After that, I found out that laws in Russia prohibit selling oil with isolate CBD, and one can be charged for a criminal offense, and can be sentenced 20-years in prison for distributing such oil in quantities of more than 50 grams!

Moreover, 1 gram (1000 mg) of the CBD isolate, not dissolved in oil, is considered a drug, but the whole bottle of 1 ounce (30 g). I specifically requested an expert from customs and he gave me this information. In Moscow (Sheremetyevo Airport) a US citizen was detained who was carrying a bottle of 10 ml of CBD oil, dispite carrying anotarized doctor's prescription with a translation into Russian. She was sentenced 8 years in prison!

My question is: Why does CANNAWAY post press releases about expansion into Russia?

Maybe in order to increase the value of their shares?

But then this is a deliberate deception of investors. I am outraged by this. Is it possible to expose CANNAWAY using your blog?

Ready to provide additional information.
