SAN DIEGO, July 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new article in Caribbean Business and a just-released YouTube web documentary video capture the historic efforts of Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) subsidiary Kannaway to educate and open up a major market in Puerto Rico by teaching residents about cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil products leading up to the island's historic legalization.

Kannaway is a portfolio company of Medical Marijuana, Inc. and, as documented by the global news media, was the first company to introduce CBD hemp oil products to entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico.
"Puerto Rico is a very important new market and we applaud the efforts of lawmakers there to recognize the significant impact of CBD hemp oil products for island residents," says Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Stuart W. Titus, PhD. "We are excited and humbled to see the global news media document the Company's role in this historic revolution."
According to the recent article in Caribbean Business, a major publication that is known as the "Wall Street Journal of Puerto Rico":
Another oft-mentioned player is Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC:MJNA), a pharmaceutical company based in San Diego. In December of last year, the company acquired Kannaway LLC, a network marketing company that focuses on cannabis- related products and has a growing presence in Puerto Rico, for an undisclosed amount, although a valuation report carried out at the time estimated Kannaway's value at $243 million.
In a letter to shareholders sent in mid-May, Medical Marijuana President & CEO Stuart W. Titus provided a glimpse into the push toward medicinal marijuana on the island. "We spent over $700,000 in 2014 on travel and lobbying expenses to help legalize [marijuana in] Puerto Rico and several U.S. states as well as a few other markets we will touch on later in the year," the exec wrote.
Puerto Rico's historic legalization adds to the growing momentum of cannabis legalization in the U.S., and also the country's territories and districts. There are now 23 states, two territories (Guam and Puerto Rico) and one district (Washington D.C.) with medical cannabis laws.
Kannaway is an active voice in the re-introduction of industrial hemp and hemp CBD products to the global marketplace, and according to another recent article, the company's plan for economic development and job growth outlined growing the organization by 150,000 in South America and Europe. Kannaway is also opening an office in Puerto Rico.
