PharmaCanna was founded in 2016 upon the belief that there exists a necessity for a medical-grade CBD option for healthcare professionals. As a pharmacist and pharmacy owner, we wished to provide the best, purest and most natural products on the market. We can proudly state that our products are across 40 states and ONLY available at locations that carry a professional health license. We want health-licensed professionals to be the ONLY ones providing patients guidance on PharmaCanna products. Our keen focus on quality all-natural ingredients, meticulous processes, efficacy and top notch customer service has resulted in high reorder rates allowing for our pharmacy partners to increase profits. Being pharmacy owners ourselves, that is important to us.


Prevail Innovative Wealth Strategies
Paul Andres, director of association strategies
4745 W 136th St., Leawood, KS 66224
913.689.2350 | www.prevailiws.com

Prevail is an organization that challenges the financial services industry status quo. The financial services industry, as a whole, puts too much emphasis solely on the accumulation phase of a financial plan. And while that's obviously important, not enough attention is typically given towards the distribution phase; both for retirement as well as legacy planning to heirs. In particular, how taxes will significantly erode any accumulated value when assets are distributed. Our strategies put individuals and business owners in more financial control by eliminating the various headwinds that can impede both accumulation and preservation of wealth.
