San Diego, California -- November 23, 2015 -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink: MJNA) is pleased to announce the immediate release of its new line of Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) products with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil for import into Brazil, through its exclusive distributor HempMeds Brasil™. This new liquid product line is an all-natural, non-GMO hemp oil formulation with MCT oil.
“Convenience is key,” states Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “After listening to our customers who are using RSHO™ hemp CBD oil, we discovered that many were blending RSHO™ with coconut and/or MCT oil to optimize the consistency when providing it to their children. With the new RSHO™ liquid formulation of MCT oil and convenient dosing spoon, we are simplifying administering the product. We are extremely excited and pleased with this new product line and feel that the popularity of RSHO™ will further expand, as a result of making it more convenient for consumers to use.”
The new RSHO™ liquid is now measured in milliliters. This will allow doctors to prescribe the liquid in a measured dosage they are more familiar with.
MCT oil is found naturally in popular food items, including coconut oil and is a top source of essential healthy fats that are popular with athletes, culinary experts and health and nutrition professionals worldwide, as explained by WebMD.
HempMeds Brasil™ is now making available two new, all-natural hemp oil products with MCT oil:
Currently on a case-by-case basis, residents of Brazil who have a government-recognized medical indication and want access to RSHO™ hemp oil products, may do so with a doctor's prescription and formal import approval from ANVISA. The government agency also explains on its’ website how to apply for an import certificate. HempMeds Brasil™ has been preparing for more than a year, its’ formal product application and regulatory submission, a process which is expected to be completed by 2016.
In the U.S. hemp is widely regarded as a whole food and super-food. Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is derived from the mature stalk of the hemp plant and is considered a food nutrient delivering the benefits of cannabinoids without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of THC. Non-GMO RSHO™ contains no pesticides, herbicides or heavy metals. Before becoming a finished product, RSHO™ goes through multiple quality tests by top cannabis industry and food laboratories.
