Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s HempMeds® México Ships RSHO-X, First-Ever Federally Approved Cannabidiol (CBD) Product February 8

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HempMeds® Mexico is the sales, marketing and distribution company for the first cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil product granted special permission by the Mexican government for import. On Feb. 2, 2016, the country’s health administration, known as COFEPRIS, issued the first two import permits.

This historic decision now makes HempMeds® Mexico’s RSHO-XTM product available for use nationwide. The Company is now accepting orders and will begin shipping RSHO-XTM to Mexico on Feb. 8, 2016.

In the U.S., CBD hemp oil products are considered a “nutritional supplement” or “food product.” Hemp oil products are readily available online from HempMeds® and can be shipped to all 50 states, territories and districts.

HempMeds® Mexico will continue to be present as Mexico debates how to change its laws to conform with the landmark Mexican Supreme Court cannabis ruling in November 2015. It declared cannabis a fundamental human right for everyone in Mexico. That decision forced the government to overhaul its marijuana laws, and the nation is encouraged to get involved in the public debate. HempMeds® Mexico was there when Mexico’s legislature began its debate on marijuana reform Jan. 25, 2016.

HempMeds® Mexico will continue to be present at every public debate throughout the country through April 5. The Company will also continue to sponsor and hold informational events -- which launched last month, when HempMeds® Mexico helped host two historic educational forums in Mexico City and Monterrey -- along with premier partner, the “Por Grace Foundation.”
