Cannabis Science Orders First Batch Inhalation Medication and Adds CBIS MDI Rescue Inhaler for Asthma/COPD via Nebulizer, Targeting 25+ Legal States, and National Market Variables

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 11, 2016) - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis based medicines, is happy to announce their first batch order for the previously announced cannabinoid based inhalation medicine for Asthma/COPD has been placed. It is expected to be received by the company within a week and released initially in select California dispensaries and available for delivery. The CBIS MDI Rescue Inhaler dosage is targeting 100 - 200 dose MDI with cannabinoid level variations ranging from 10mg, 25mg, up to 100mg THC, CBD, and other cannabinoid variables as patient/consumer analysis moves further down the road.

Based on State-by-State laws the Company can proceed with studies in the 25+ states approved for medical marijuana, and lay the groundwork for expanding into other states across the nation as legislation changes and more states become legal. This could also be seen as a mechanism to verify the effectiveness of CBD/THC on patients that use the medication as a bronchodilator.

This MDI device offers the ingestion of the Medication in a finer Particle mist than the Nebulizer version which can be quickly absorbed by the Lungs and spread into the Blood Stream for quicker response time. Rescue Inhalers cannot replace Nebulizer Medications but the portability of these devices gives the Asthma/COPD sufferer freedom to be out enjoying life knowing their medication is at hand if needed.

The CBIS MDI Rescue Inhaler is expected to be available in all states where marijuana is legal and medical users will typically be patients with nebulizer usage experience. Studies have shown that CBD/THC can often be a more effective bronchial dilator than Albuterol or Ipratropium, some of the leading asthma products on today's market. In many studies THC and CBD oil ingestion was found to have better response times to induced flare ups of the patients studied.

A metered dose inhaler (MDI) is a handheld device that delivers a specific amount of medication in aerosol form, rather than as a pill or capsule. The MDI consists of a pressurized canister inside a plastic case, with a mouthpiece attached. With an MDI, you press on the device while inhaling the Asthma/COPD medication directly into your lungs. Its portability makes it easy to use anywhere, anytime. MDIs use a propellant to push medication out of the inhaler.

Rescue Inhalers are designed to be used as needed for rapid, short-term relief of symptoms -- used to prevent or treat an asthma/COPD attack.

"We couldn't be more excited to expand our company's reach to impact more patients than ever in a positive way," said President & CEO, Co-Founder, Raymond C. Dabney. "It surprises people that cannabis can actually improve lung volume and air flow rates, but that's exactly what studies show. We are glad to be one of the first to bring such an effective, natural treatment to market. The Cannabis Science Cannabinoid Based Inhalant will first be distributed in the State of California, but we plan to quickly roll the product out across the nation in legal States."

These exciting new medical applications have opened doors to a huge market of medical marijuana and cannabinoid patients that were left out do to the harmful effects of smoking Marijuana to receive the benefits needed.
