Medical Marijuana Continues to Expand Approved Conditions -- CFN Media

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 25, 2017) - CFN Media Group, the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces the publication of an article covering Medical Marijuana Inc.'s (OTC PINK: MJNA) recent announcement of permission granted by Mexico's health authority, COFEPRIS, to import its flagship Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™) to treat a cancer patient for pain associated with chemotherapy, and their "general well-being," according to the prescription. The move comes a year after its subsidiary, HempMeds Mexico®, received the first-ever federal permit to import a cannabis product from the U.S. to Mexico.

"Mexico's government and regulatory authorities are starting to recognize some of the potential benefits of cannabis/cannabinoid based therapeutics for the overall health and wellness of its people," said Medical Marijuana Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "We believe the potential restorative and rejuvenative benefits of CBD will soon be proven by medical science -- but customers and their anecdotal evidence points toward these benefits [now]."

Medical Marijuana Inc. developed RSHO-X™ as a completely THC-free CBD hemp oil product that meets the rigid drug testing restrictions set forth by the World Anti-Doping Agency ("WADA"). As a result, the supplement has become a popular choice for parents of small children, first responders, competitive athletes, or anyone subject to a drug test, along with governments looking to avoid the violation of any drug laws.

In February 2016, Mexico's COFEPRIS approved the import of RSHO-X™ on a case-by-case basis to treat serious medical conditions. The first patients to take advantage of the import capabilities included Emili Zoe -- a young child suffering from West syndrome with up to 250 seizures per day. Her family imported RSHO-X™, which enabled her to dramatically reduce the frequency of seizures and improve quality of life.

The recent news of a 44-year-old breast cancer patient importing RSHO-X™ for the treatment of pain from chemotherapy represents the ongoing adoption of the product in Mexico. Perhaps more importantly, the news could represent the opening up of the market to a growing number of conditions apart from just seizure treatment. The company believes there could be a broad range of conditions that could be supported through CBD hemp oils and related products.
