Senator Mike Gravel, who is a board member of Cannabis Sativa Inc (OTCMKTS:CBDS), has taken over as the CEO of the company. Former interim CEO David Tobias commented that that Gravel’s extensive experience about the executive side of operations would help the company in a long way.

Extensive experience to help shape the company

Moreover, Gravel’s hold on public policies, private business and politics will drive the company in the right direction. Gravel’s appointment as CEO of the company came even as he had stepped down from the position of CEO and Board Member of KUSH, which was earlier spun off the company. After assuming the new responsibility, Gravel will contribute towards driving both the company and the cannabis sector. Overcoming existing obstacles that present themselves in the form of the Federal criminalisation of use of cannabis are one among the critical action points for Gravel.

At the same time, Tobias will take over as the President of the company, according to the company’s press release.
