SAN DIEGO, June 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is proud to announce to the public and shareholders that its portfolio Company, HempMeds™, received authorization from the Denver Public Health Department that Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) Blue and Gold hemp oil brands (both 3- and 10-gram oral syringe tubes) qualified for "potentially non-hazardous foods not requiring time or temperature control." To follow protocol, HempMeds™ will provide a copy of the letter with RSHO™ shipments to Denver-area retailers.

"HempMeds sincerely appreciates the efforts of the City of Denver, Colorado, in recognizing HempMeds' flagship RSHO as a food product," states Marcos Agramont, Operations Manager at HempMeds™. "As a result of the Company's efforts with packaging RSHO and stability of the product, the City of Denver agrees that no refrigeration is needed for on-shelf display of unopened tubes. This allows HempMeds' authorized retailers the ability to prominently promote RSHO on shelves versus in a potentially limited refrigerated display environment. With this certification, HempMeds is looking forward to providing RSHO to more hemp and cannabis retailers in the Denver area."
At Medical Marijuana, Inc. product quality and safety are of the utmost importance to protect the reputation of their company, portfolio investments, brands and customers. While not a requirement, the Company mandates that their hemp oil is tested by two of the top food and cannabis testing laboratories in the country. Laboratory qualifications include:
- A2LA: ISO/IEC 17025
- FSIS approved laboratories
- AMS approved laboratory
- VASP approved laboratory
- USDA accredited laboratory
- ASTA check sample program
- ISO accredited for mandatory nutritional analyses
"Every batch of hemp oil sourced by Medical Marijuana, Inc. and their portfolio companies are tested separately at these industry-renowned laboratories. Each batch number is then matched, results are reviewed and approved. Only then will production of finished products commence. Should there ever be any question between the independently issued results, MJNA and/or its portfolio Company's policy is to not produce finished products until the discrepancy is resolved. These reports are extremely detailed and may be requested through the Company," states Andrew Hard, spokesperson for HempMeds.
In recent news, HempMeds' RSHO™ has made significant progress in public awareness. Most notably, with the acceptance of RSHO™ hemp oil products in Brazil. There, an historic change occurred in the country's cannabis law permitting RSHO™ for import, through HempMeds Brasil™.
On June 1, Texas became the 15th state with a "low THC cannabis" (also known as "CBD-only") law signed into effect by Gov. Greg Abbott. In response to the legislation, news features by CBS and Unvision in Dallas, Texas, highlighted the use of RSHO™ as a readily available alternative product in all 50 states by a local mother on behalf of her five-year-old daughter with special needs (details at www.Hope4Harper.com).
