Ross' Gold Announces That It Will Be Attending CHAMPS Canada Conference in Toronto With Olympic Gold Medal Winner Ross Rebagliati as a Featured Speaker

Rebagliati to Discuss Medical Marijuana Use in Athletes

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - Green and Hill Industries (PINKSHEETS: GHIL) dba Ross' Gold CEO Ross Rebagliati has been invited to speak at the CHAMPS conference in Toronto during the May 24th weekend speaking about his experience as an Olympic Gold Medal winner and the many facets of medical marijuana use in athletes.

Ross' Gold will also have a booth at the event, and Ross Rebagliati will be around to answer questions regarding his experiences and about the company in general. Ross has long been an advocate for medical marijuana, and was thrust into the spotlight in 1998.

One day after Rebagliati won the men's giant slalom at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, his coach told him he'd tested positive for marijuana. The legal limit for marijuana traces in the bloodstream was 15 nanograms. Rebagliati checked in at 17.8. The positive was triggered by second-hand smoke he unwittingly inhaled at a various going-away parties and the wake of a close friend Jeff "Lumpy" Liddell.

Two days later, the International Olympic Committee stripped Rebagliati of his gold medal. Roughly 32 hours after that, the IOC gave it back. The rationale for the reversal was as stunning as the initial decision: Weed, as it turned out, wasn't on the IOC's banned substance list.

Upon release, Rebagliati became an unlikely Olympic celebrity. He appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He was the subject of two columns by famed New York Times scribe George Vecsey, appeared twice on the Conan O'Brien Show and was parodied twice on SNL. The prime minister of Canada, Jean Chrétien, called to offer support on behalf of a proud nation the day he was released from Japanese authorities. 

Ross Rebagliati has been recently featured and continues to be featured in the media on television and print including USA Today, High Times, NBC, CBC, CNN, Yahoo! Sports, Die Welt, CTV, The Toronto Star, The Denver Times, Sports Illustrated, The Pique, Leafly.com, Whistler Question, NORML, BC Business Magazine, Huffington Post, The Daily Telegraph, and more. 

Rebagliati Gold Enterprises Ltd. was incorporated in October 2011. With changes announced in the way that Health Canada was going to deal with medical marijuana made public in December 2012, the Company decided to enter the medical marijuana industry in January 2013 under the name Ross' Gold™ using the celebrity of Olympic Gold winner Ross Rebagliati as a springboard into the industry.

Ross Rebagliati, CEO of Ross' Gold, commented, "I'm often asked about the fact that supreme athletes such as Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt have admitted regular cannabis use and what potential benefits might be for them. I always answer this question the same way. I believe that Cannabis is the best jet lag cure and it makes for quick recovery from frequent long haul travel with different time zones. I also believe that it keeps appetite healthy for maximum fuel intake to sustain high output over the season as often appetite is lost due to jet lag and the different eating and sleeping cycles. CBD is potentially one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory substances we know of and it's perfect for after workouts, post injury, post operation and general aches and pains from long term athletics, training, competing, or simply living life to its fullest."
