LA JOLLA, Calif., May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyDx, Inc. (OTCQB:MYDX), producer of its patented MyDx™ (My Diagnostic) product line, the first battery operated, handheld, chemical analyzer for consumers, today reported its global sales outside the US are greatly exceeding expectations, with its foreign CannaDx unit sales comprising 20% of total sales since its launch.

With only minimal MyDx marketing effort outside the US, the Company has already received sales for CannaDx from over 20 countries, including nearly 9% from Canada and over 3% from Spain. Given the early word of mouth and social media traction its revolutionary multi-use Analyzer is gaining, the outlook for robust global sales is well ahead of the Company’s initial plan. This supports the Company’s marketing objective of building a global brand and marketplace for its multi-use MyDx Analyzer, initially with the CannaDx application as the number of countries worldwide with legalized cannabis sales continues to grow.
“We didn’t see it coming, not 20%, not over 20 countries, so soon,” said Daniel R. Yazbeck, MyDx Chairman and CEO. “The first few unit sales in any new foreign country are the most challenging to achieve. Once the seeds are planted and cannabis consumers or prosumers (growers and dispensaries) have tried CannaDx, the word of mouth and social media buzz in a relatively cohesive community such as the legal cannabis industry, will grow organically.
“While it’s still early, the data paints a picture of a global market with pent-up demand eager to affordably, accurately and conveniently test cannabis for over 20 of the most important chemical components, including THC, that helps patients find a strain that works for them, as well as to gain access to a growing worldwide, cloud-based cannabis database.
“Accordingly, we are carefully examining the foreign sales data, presented above, and re-analyzing the size and growth rates of global cannabis markets to advance our plans to launch new marketing and distribution initiatives in Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific,” Mr. Yazbeck concluded.
