Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO to Speak on Nutritional and Therapeutic Benefits of Hemp at 3rd Annual Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo

RSHO Advocate Penny Howard to Share Story on How Her Fight to Save Daughter Harper Helped Legalize New Markets and Change Lives in Latin America

SAN DIEGO, CA --(Marketwired - June 09, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA) today announced that at the 3rd Annual Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE) in New York on June 17, the Company's CEO Dr. Stuart Titus will speak on how the world stands to benefit both nutritionally and therapeutically from Cannabidiol (CBD) -- a nutritious, non-psychoactive substance derived from industrial hemp.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® will also be showing retail-ready cannabis products and exhibiting at the Expo at booth #100, along with Dallas mom and Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) advocate Penny Howard. Howard is attending the CWCBE to share the story of how her fight to save her daughter Harper led her on a Facebook crusade that helped legalize new markets in Latin America -- changing millions of lives around the globe.

"The inspiring stories of brave mothers like Penny Howard, and children like Harper, are why the hard-working people at our Company get out of bed every morning," Titus said. "I always look forward to an opportunity like the CWCBE where I can further educate audiences on the plethora of benefits for humanity that can be derived from one plant. We want to change the world's perception of cannabis and people like Penny Howard and her little girl Harper are helping us accomplish our goal, while their conviction is helping others suffering across the globe."

Penny Howard's crusade to help other children who suffered like her daughter Harper opened the door for Medical Marijuana Inc. to export medical cannabis to Brazil and Mexico. As Reuters recently reported, the Mexican market for therapeutic cannabis may be worth up to $1-$2 billion for Medical Marijuana Inc.

New York dad Craig Pagano, the first-ever New York father to bring CBD hemp oil into the state to help save his daughter Beyla, will also be available at the CWCBE, as well as New York-based Kannalife Sciences, Inc., which holds the exclusive license to the U.S. government patent on the therapeutic use of cannabinoids.
