PHOENIX, March 21, 2023 (Newswire.com) - You don't have to be in the skateboarding scene to know and love the legend Tony Hawk, a.k.a. the Birdman. Not only is he the most accomplished American professional skateboarder, but he is an innovator, entrepreneur, and all-around good guy. He's won six gold medals for skateboarding in the ESPN X-Games and is still the only skateboarder to pull off a 900 in competition. He invented many tricks but retired from competition in 1999 and remains active in promoting the sport, his products (including Birdhouse, a skateboard and accessories manufacturer), and his charity—The Skatepark Project. What keeps Hawk so relevant after almost 40 years in the public eye? "I never quit. That's my only secret," he says.
Now, it's time to roll with the legend. Colossal Management is stoked to announce a legendary partnership with Hawk to raise awareness and donations for The Skatepark Project. Colossal is changing the face of professional fundraising by running online competitions that benefit many different people.
In this case, there will be two winners. A "People's Choice," where one fan favorite will capture the hearts of the public and be voted the Skatepark Hero of 2023, obtaining a once-in-a-lifetime prize including $10,000 and a skate session with Tony himself. And if that isn't exciting enough, one talented skater will be deemed "Tony's Pick," where Hawk will choose one skater with the most creative boardslide and/or lipslide. All entrants will have the opportunity to work on and perfect these tricks throughout the Competition.
Tony Hawk's Skatepark Hero will be operated by Colossal as part of a fundraising campaign on behalf of DTCare. Donations from votes cast during the Competition will go directly to DTCare, which will then grant the donations to The Skatepark Project, minus Competition fees and costs, to help underserved communities create safe and inclusive public skateparks for youth. Colossal is proud to support this organization in their mission to issue grants to low-income communities by building quality public skateparks and providing guidance to city officials, parents, and children.
"Skateboarding has more depth than just sport. It's about inclusivity, creativity, and community," Hawk says.

ZetrOZ Systems to Demonstrate Injury-Healing sam 2.0 and sam x1 Units at the Professional Football Athletic Trainer’s Society Membership Presentation March 21
TRUMBULL, Conn., March 21, 2023 (Newswire.com) - As proud 2023-2024 platinum sponsors of the Professional Football Athletic Trainer's Society (PFATS), ZetrOZ Systems will demonstrate its sam® 2.0 and sam® x1 units at an honor reception on Tuesday, March 21, at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix.
ZetrOZ Systems will present clinical data and scientific studies from the past year on the efficacy of sustained acoustic medicine and its injury-healing potential at the PFATS Honors Reception to be held on March 21 from 6-9 p.m. in the Akimel Ballroom of the Sheraton Grand.
Dr. George Lewis, founder and CEO of ZetrOZ Systems, will be a guest speaker for the Membership Presentation the following morning, 9:50-10:10 a.m.
PFATS provides the highest quality of healthcare to the National Football League and works closely with the NFL Physician Society, National Football League (NFL), and the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA). It elevates athletic training through research and education to its diverse, 158-plus members across the country, with many of them holding advanced degrees, specialty certifications, and being Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC).
"We're proud to contribute our breakthrough sam® product innovation to PFATS's arsenal of athlete care," Dr. Lewis said. "ZetrOZ Systems works with athletes on all NFL teams — to that end, we're launching a new player performance program that's built around healing daily micro-trauma as an injury prevention measure."
Some of the most common injuries ZetrOZ members face include high-ankle sprains, hamstring tears, and contusions. While, traditionally, athletes have had to navigate injuries and pain management with medication or even surgery, sustained acoustic medicine has been clinically proven by over 40 studies as a non-invasive alternative.
The sam® 2.0 and sam® X1 wearable ultrasound devices are the only FDA-cleared units of their kind and can be used daily at home for injury healing, joint pain, and more. By increasing oxygen flow, the removal of cellular waste, and stimulating regeneration, sam® devices boost the body's natural healing propensities, speeding up the recovery process and getting athletes back in action as quickly as possible. With research funded and backed by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, NASA, and more, ZetrOZ Systems has risen as an industry leader in soft tissue healing.

GB Sciences’ First International Patent Protecting Its Proprietary Cannabinoid-Based Formulations for Parkinson’s Disease Has Been Issued in China
LAS VEGAS, March 20, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Gb Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX), a leading cannabis- and plant-inspired biopharmaceutical research and development company, has recently been issued a patent in China to protect its proprietary cannabinoid-containing formulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. China is an increasingly important pharmaceutical market with cultural acceptance of plant-based formulations, which is a good fit for Gb Sciences' drug candidates. Gb Sciences' first international patent also confirms that the Company's intellectual property strategy can work globally and strengthens the Company's patent portfolio. The global market for treatments of Parkinson's disease is projected to grow to $8.8 billion by the year 2026, and new therapies to address Parkinson's disease symptoms are greatly needed.
"The issuance of Gb Sciences' first international patent protecting methods of using our proprietary cannabinoid-containing formulations for treating Parkinson's disease is an important milestone in the development of these vitally important therapies. Gb Sciences' recent patent issued in China validates both our plant-inspired drug discovery process and intellectual property strategy, which involve defining and protecting Minimum Essential Mixtures," explained Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, President and Chief Science Officer of Gb Sciences, Inc. "Gb Sciences starts its drug discovery process with plant-based therapies that are working anecdotally or in traditional medical systems, then we systematically reduce the number of compounds to reveal Minimum Essential Mixtures. Gb Sciences' novel Minimum Essential Mixtures retain the increased efficacy of whole plant medicines, but they are easier to manufacture with precision at scale like single ingredient drugs. These Minimum Essential Mixtures are a viable alternative to standard single ingredient drugs or traditional whole plant medicines."
Gb Sciences' Minimum Essential Mixture-based drug development strategy does not aim to treat complex diseases as if they were caused by a single factor, but instead addresses the combination of factors that lead to a complex human disorder. Minimum Essential Mixtures (MEMs) are potentially more effective than single ingredient drugs because the different active ingredients target the multiple human processes responsible for complex diseases, such as neurodegeneration, heart disease, and cancers. As such, MEMs may offer a more holistic treatment for complex disorders such as Parkinson's disease that cannot be attributed to a single cause, while maintaining the manufacturing and quality control advantages of single ingredient drugs.
Gb Sciences' patent portfolio currently contains six issued U.S. and four issued foreign patents, as well as 15 U.S. and 49 foreign patent-pending applications that cover our novel AI-enabled drug discovery platform and proprietary plant-inspired therapies for more than 65 different disorders.

Jiaherb’s Rhodiola Rosea Receives CITES Certification
In the field harvesting Rhodiola Rosea Roots
PINE BROOK, N.J., March 31, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Jiaherb, Inc. announced today that it received its Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) certification for its rhodiola rosea ingredient. Jiaherb is a leading manufacturer of herbal extracts and natural ingredients whose mission is to provide the highest-quality ingredients while offering superior customer service.
CITES protects and regulates plants in international trade so that the commercial demand in the marketplace does not threaten their survival in the wild. CITES certification of rhodiola rosea ensures the ingredient is sustainably traded as well as regulated with positive impacts on the population of its species.
As a premier manufacturer of natural ingredients, Jiaherb focuses its sustainability efforts through social, economic, and environmental means while guaranteeing customers consistent efficacy and efficiency through traceability 100% of the time. At the forefront of Jiaherb's sustainability efforts, the ingredient supplier adopted rhodiola rosea through the Adopt-an-Herb Program with the American Botanical Council (ABC) in 2017. This effort has allowed the company to stay current with the scientific and clinical research of the ingredient as well as develop a sustainable future to protect rhodiola rosea from overharvesting. As the demand for rhodiola rosea continues to grow in the marketplace, adding a CITES certification protects the herb and strengthens Jiaherb's sustainability efforts as an ingredient supplier.
Jiaherb's cultivates rhodiola rosea to make the product more sustainable and only harvests roots which are more than five years old. Quality and reliable sourcing is a top priority for the company. The company ensures they are using the best quality rhodiola rosea which has more potency and fewer contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides.
"Having our CITES certification ensures Jiaherb's responsible sourcing and sustainability efforts of rhodiola rosea and allows us to continue to deliver only the very best quality of the ingredient to our customers," says Chris Oesterheld, Executive Vice President.
This year, in its continuing sustainability efforts, Jiaherb supported the Nature Conservancy, which tackles climate change, protects lands and water, provides food and water, and builds healthy cities.
"Our sustainability efforts and environmental and social responsibility continue to be a top priority for our company. Adding CITES certification to our growing list of sustainability efforts, including adopting rhodiola rosea with the American Botanical Council and supporting the Nature Conservancy, have become part of the core strategy of our company," says Scott Chen, President.
Jiaherb, Inc. manufactures herbal extracts and powders, natural sweeteners, fruit juice and vegetable powders, spices, vitamins, and much more. The company is an NSF Certified, GMP-compliant manufacturer of natural ingredients and herbal extracts that are used in the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food and beverage industries.
