SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - September 06, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA) announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® is exhibiting at the Sept. 7-9 Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) in Los Angeles, Calif., which is poised to potentially become the 5th U.S. state to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
The Expo, being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, follows a successful June CWCBExpo in New York that had close to 4,000 attendees. Los Angeles' CWCBExpo, like its East Coast counterpart, brings together cannabis industry business professionals, investors and those looking to get involved in an industry estimated to top $35 billion annually by 2020.
"As the first publicly traded company in the medical and industrial hemp space, we're honored to have our HempMeds® products on display in the state in which we're headquartered and in the state that may be poised to become the 5th U.S. state to legalize recreational marijuana this November when residents vote on Proposition 64 at the ballots," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "It's an exciting time to be involved in the cannabis industry, the newest multibillion-dollar industry in the U.S., and it's our goal at conferences like these to educate audiences on the plethora of benefits that cannabis can provide to patients around the world."
HempMeds® representatives will be exhibiting a wide range of retail-ready cannabis products at booth #505, including its zero-THC Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™), the first-ever cannabis product to receive approval from the federal government of Mexico for importation. Also on display will be its groundbreaking Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™), which helped reshape international cannabis laws in Paraguay and Brazil. Hemp oil products from HempMeds® are readily available to ship to all 50 U.S. states, districts and territories, plus more than 40 countries around the world.
