SAN DIEGO, Aug. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to inform shareholders and the general public that HempMedsPX—the master distributor and contracted marketing company for the Medical Marijuana, Inc. corporate portfolio—will be attending and exhibiting at the Michigan Medical Marijuana Conference August 23-25 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
"This conference will introduce HempMedsPX to the Michigan medical cannabis market," said Charles Vest, Director of Communications for HempMedsPX. "We will have the opportunity to showcase all current hemp-based products under the HempMedsPX umbrella and establish distribution networks throughout the state.
"We are especially hopeful that we can fill in the gap left by the recent Michigan Court of Appeals ruling that prohibits resin-based edible cannabis from being covered by their medical marijuana legislation. Since our hemp-based CBD products are legal to consume in all fifty states, we are confident that we will be able to assist those medical cannabis patients in Michigan who prefer cannabis oils and edible products."
In addition to national cannabis-related vendors, the Michigan Medical Marijuana Conference will have doctors on site to assist those looking to join the state's medical marijuana program. For more information on the conference, visit http://www.mmmrmag.com/index.html.
According to the US government, every product derived from cannabis is categorized as marijuana—including hemp. We, therefore, use the word "marijuana" as an all-encompassing term to cover cannabis, medical marijuana, marijuana and hemp. We believe that "cannabis" should be the standard term used for all medical products; as the industry matures, we will be phasing out the words "medical marijuana" and "marijuana" from the company's vocabulary.
HempMedsPX is the master distributor and contracted marketing company for the CannaVest Corp. (OTC:CANV) and Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) portfolio of products, including their revolutionary hemp-based CBD products. HempMedsPX offers mainstream marketing, sales, customer service, and logistics for the cannabis industry. In addition to handling sales and distribution, HempMedsPX is the communication hub for the Medical Marijuana Inc. portfolio of companies.
