Black Enterprise magazine Fall 2019 issue

It was announced that former NFL player Kassim Osgood has joined the C3 International Board of Advisors. C3 International Inc. manufactures the unique intellectual property for Idrasil, which is a holistic alternative to addictive opiates and life-threatening narcotics.

Idrasil is the first standardized form of medical cannabis. It is a superior alternative to opiates and life-threatening narcotics as it offers all of the medicinal analgesic and therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

Idrasil bills itself as a treatment for various conditions that include, but are not limited to, AIDS; anorexia; arthritis; autism; anxiety/depression; cancer; chronic pain; glaucoma; migraines; persistent muscle spasms; Parkinson’s; seizures; severe nausea; Tourette’s Syndrome, and any other chronic or a persistent medical symptoms that substantially limit major life activities as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

“The NFL uses millions of dollars in opioid-based products from pharmaceutical companies,” said Kassim Osgood in a statement. “Idrasil is the better alternative that nobody is talking about yet. Getting everyone’s heroes addicted to pain medicine to combat trauma in one of the most dangerous sports in the world is a tragedy that is not getting enough coverage.”

“We are incredibly proud to have football legend Kassim Osgood on board with us,” said Steele Clarke Smith III, chairman and CEO of C3 International. “Osgood’s willingness, participation, and dedication to Idrasil demonstrates our proven capacity to deliver positive change and solutions to athletes suffering from pain.”

Osgood is a retired All-Pro football player, actor, and entrepreneur. Prior to joining C3 International, he attended and played football at both Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and San Diego State University. In 2003, Osgood signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent and also played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, and San Francisco 49ers. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection for his Outstanding Performance on Special Teams and was also named to the All-Pro team. He has acted in films before and is a part-owner of several restaurants, and a brewery in San Diego called Resident Brewing Co.
