Medical Marijuana, Inc. Announces the Launch of HempMeds® Mexico: Opening the Cannabidiol (CBD) Market to the Country’s More Than 122 Million Residents

Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s RSHO-XTM Hemp-Based Cannabidiol (CBD) Products Are Now Available For Import Into Mexico at HempMeds.MX

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It is with great excitement that Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) announces the launch of HempMeds® Mexico to shareholders and the public. HempMeds® Mexico was created to provide access to CBD hemp oil products that are now legal to import in the country of Mexico for the first time.

“The Company is in the process of establishing a HempMeds® Mexico office in Monterrey, Mexico within the next week. Over the next year the Company will bring its lab, manufacturing, sales and distribution facilities to Mexico, in order to provide our products to all of the Latin America market, creating employment and an entirely new industry in Mexico,” stated Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. According to a recent Reuters article, Mexico represents a “$1 billion to $2 billion opportunity in terms of cumulative revenue over the next 10 years.”

History was made on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 when the government of Mexico issued two of the country’s first permits to import the cannabidiol (CBD) product, Real Scientific Hemp OilTM called RSHO-XTM, from the Company.

The move by COFEPRIS (the Mexican health authority) has cleared the way for millions of individuals and families to access HempMeds® Mexico’s RSHO-XTM, a non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil. RSHO-XTM is a CBD hemp oil product that is specific to the Mexico market.

“This is a giant step in the right direction, this historic decision will soon allow anyone in Mexico the freedom to import RSHO-XTM products, with a doctor’s prescription and import permit. It’s our mission to make cannabidiol products safe, and easily accessible to every person in Mexico,” said Titus.

Around the globe, cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is widely regarded as a “whole food” and “superfood.” MJNA’s cannabidiol is derived from the mature stalk of the hemp plant and is considered a food nutrient delivering the benefits of cannabinoids without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Although CBD hemp oil products from MJNA are readily available online in the U.S. as a “nutritional supplement” or “food product” and can be shipped to all 50 states, territories, and districts, hemp oil products are handled quite differently in Mexico and Brazil, which require a doctor’s prescription and import permit.

HempMeds® Mexico will be attending every national public debate throughout Mexico through April 5th, as the country determines how to change its laws to conform with the landmark Mexican Supreme Court cannabis ruling in November 2015.

HempMeds® Mexico will also continue to sponsor and hold events throughout the country. Along with our premier partner, the “Por Grace Foundation”, HempMeds® Mexico has already hosted two historic educational events, one in Mexico City and a second in Monterrey.
