AUSTIN, Texas, May 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) and SmallCapVoice.com, Inc. (SCV) announced today that a new audio interview with Medical Marijuana, Inc., a leading industrial hemp industry innovator, is now available. The interview can be heard at http://smallcapvoice.com/blog/5-16-16-smallcapvoice-interview-with-medical-marijuana-inc-mjna
Stuart W. Titus, PhD, President and CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. called in to SmallCapVoice.com to provide the listening audience with his personal insights into the Company’s recent news regarding how the Brazilian government has approved its hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil product, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) from HempMeds Brasil™, for a fourth indication for import as a prescription medication for the treatment of cancer. In addition, Dr. Titus discussed that the Company's Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™) product is the first-ever cannabis product (high concentration natural botanical hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) without THC) approved by federal authorities for import into Mexico, into what projects to be a "$10-12 billion" future cannabis market.
Dr. Titus states, “The U.S. is slowly moving forward with the legalization of medical cannabis and while we have great hopes for November's elections -- we see many Latin American countries moving forward in a swift manner toward the acceptance of non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Previously the acceptance of any cannabis-based product would have been unheard of in these nations -- but with our education combined with different systems of medical care, that is now rapidly changing. MJNA's brands RSHO and RSHO-X are welcome in two of Latin America's biggest countries and Puerto Rico has 12 registrations with our products. We look forward to reporting on further developments of this trend in the future.”
