(OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased that its flagship cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil brand, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) appeared in the Wall Street Journal on July 31st 2015, as part of the paper's coverage of New York State medical marijuana license recipients.

"We are honored and excited to see our flagship product Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ appearing in coverage from the Wall Street Journal," states Dr. Stuart Titus, the CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "The mainstream media is finally taking notice of the wonderful impact that RSHO™ had for the people of Brazil."
The Wall Street Journal article that showed RSHO™ was centered on the closely watched application process in New York State. The article included coverage of the five companies that were awarded state medical marijuana licenses on July 31.
"We congratulate and applaud the New York State legislators and officials who helped push through this important state program to help so many people in need in the Empire State," Titus says. "New York has developed a very progressive medical marijuana program and will not include smokable products. In New York, extracts including oils and tinctures will be allowed for patients as will other more socially acceptable forms of delivery."
Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ was photographed by Getty Images at the International Cannabis Association's Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo, held in New York City on June 17-19. News about RSHO™'s impact on the nation of Brazil, the eighth-largest economy in the world, drove significant media attention to RSHO™ at the New York show.
Latest news and updates concerning RSHO™ and Brazil include the fact that RSHO™ is now being used by 800 families in Brazil, and the government of Brazil dropping up to 60 percent of the import tax on RSHO™. All of this transpired, of course, after the government of Brazil approved Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s new partner HempMeds Brasil™ and their products as a prescription medication for import.
"With Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ changing the lives of so many people around the world, we are confident that shareholders and the general public will be hearing much more about RSHO™ from the mainstream news media in the coming weeks and months," Titus states. "HempMedsTM has many years of experience with these extracts and developing tinctures of CBD Hemp Oil. While many patients in New York will have to wait many months for their State-approved meds - hemp-based CBD products are available today for health and wellness benefits."
