SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2016) - CFN Media Group, the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces the publication of an article covering new research, done in Mexico, that demonstrates the efficacy of Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s (OTC PINK: MJNA) RSHO-X™ in the treatment of children with refractory epilepsy. The study, conducted by Dr. Carlos G. Aguirre Velazquez, reported 60% of 53 children treated with cannabidiol ("CBD") oil experienced a reduction in seizures, including 16% that were completely free of seizures and 51% that experienced a moderate to important improvement.
"This is such exciting news for our company and we are honored and humbled to witness this new work performed by Dr. Velazquez," said Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Stuart Titus. "We are proud to be the first company with CBD products approved by the Mexico government, and thrilled to see the results that our products are producing for the quality of life for families that otherwise had no options."
Medical Marijuana, Inc. secured the right to import its RSHO-X™ CBD oil into Mexico in early February 2016 when the Health Department of Mexico ("COFEPRIS") issued the country's first-ever government permits for a medicinal cannabis product. The move followed a series of Congressional hearings in January where the company joined other advocates in Mexico City to lobby for the legalization of the drug for treating numerous serious medical conditions.
The market for cannabinoid-based treatments in Mexico could be roughly the same size as California's enormous market -- and President Pena Nieto has already proposed legalizing medical marijuana and easing limits for personal use of the drug. In late 2015, the Mexican Supreme Court also ruled that marijuana for recreational use could be legalized under the Constitution, which could pave the way for a dramatically changed market.
In addition to Mexico, the company has been successful in securing the rights to import its CBD oils into a number of other countries around the world, including Paraguay, Brazil, and Puerto Rico. These licenses permit the import of RSHO™ to treat a growing number of medical indications, including epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, chronic pain, and cancer pain and related symptoms -- a much more diverse array than prescription cannabinoids.
