SAN DIEGO, Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce to shareholders and the general public that HempMedsPX—a corporate portfolio company of Medical Marijuana Inc. and the exclusive master distributor and contracted marketing company for CannaVest Corp. (OTC:CANV) and Medical Marijuana Inc. — will be attending and submitting product for judging at the Michigan Medical Marijuana Conference on September 29, 2013 in Traverse City, Michigan.
"This is our second MMM Conference, and we couldn't be more excited," said Charles Vest, Director of Communications for HempMedsPX and keynote speaker at the conference. "We got a tremendous response to our federally legal CBD-rich hemp oil products at the previous conference in August. The Michigan Court of Appeals ruling that prohibits most edible cannabis products has left an enormous void in the market. Medical cannabis patients who are seeking high-CBD hemp oils and products should know we offer the solution, while allowing them to be in full compliance with state and federal law."
In addition to exhibiting at the conference, HempMedsPX will be submitting the prototype high-CBD hemp oil concentrate, CBD Simple, for judging at the conference's "Green Cup." CBD Simple recently took top CBD honors at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in Seattle, Washington.
The Traverse City conference will feature medical cannabis physician certification, medical cannabis patient registration, a legislation panel, classes, industry-related speakers and exhibitors.
