Medical Marijuana Educational Seminars

Featured at these venues MJNA will be discussing an entirely New Business Opportunity for anyone wanting to get into the Medical Marijuana industry. These kinds of Expo's and seminars are filled with people wanting to learn how to enter the Medical Marijuana Business. Therefore, we will be presenting our ground breaking new Medical Marijuana Inc's Educational Center business opportunity where the licensed Center owner receives a percentage of the ticket sales and a percentage of all products & services offered through them by licensor MJNA.

Pharmacology

Medical Marijuana Inc is developing and acquiring proprietary products for the pharmacological marketplace. The company is instituting medically based research to eventually formulate medical products that can clear the FDA approval process. Though this is a futuristic goal and the medical approval process is a lengthy one, various stages of progress on medicinal properties will be made public over time.

Other Cannabis and Hemp related products that do not require FDA approval are being considered by this new Division of MJNA for public marketing. Progress reports will also be regularly made on the development of these products that may foster health and wellness benefits. All products require certain studies be formally conducted in order to make claims of any benefit so derived and the Company's Medical Products Division will be so charged with evaluation and study.

Solutions

Medical Marijuana has developed a suite of solutions to deliver an efficient and secure infrastructure for the Medical Marijuana Industry that provides the tools to industry operators to effectively manage their businesses with the confidence that they are in full compliance.
