Massive Coverage Across Latin America After Government of Paraguay Grants First-Ever Import Permit for Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™)
SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - June 07, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA) announced today that the Associated Press and Paraguay's top television news channel Telefuturo covered the historic news of the government of Paraguay granting its first-ever import permit for Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) as a prescription medication for refractory epilepsy.
The Associated Press article titled "Paraguay importara aceite de marihuana de Estados Unidos (Parguay imports hemp oil from the United States)," features comments from a spokesman for the Paraguay Government's National Anti-Drug Secretariat about the country's decision to allow RSHO™ into the country. The Telefuturo broadcast is titled: "Autorizan importación de aceite de cannabis para uso medicina (Hemp oil authorized for import for medical use.)"
Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc., said, "We're humbled and grateful that top media outlets continue to cover these historic events of countries authorizing import permits for RSHO™. It's exciting to hear about residents who are experiencing the real benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) oil for the very first time. We want everyone around the world to have access to RSHO™, and we gratefully applaud the government of Paraguay for acting so swiftly on behalf of the health and welfare of their people."
In May 2016, the Paraguay government authorized RSHO™ for import into the country as a prescription medication for refractory epilepsy -- making it the third country in Latin America after Brazil and Mexico, along with Puerto Rico in the Caribbean -- to approve Medical Marijuana Inc.'s CBD hemp oil for multiple medical indications. Currently, Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s RSHO™ products are shipping to more than 40 countries around the world.
