AN DIEGO, Feb. 1, 2017 -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (otc pink:MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil has begun the process of importing its Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO) Green Label into Brazil.
HempMeds® Brasil is the first company to offer legal medical cannabis products to Brazil after receiving approval to import to those suffering from specific medical conditions. RSHO™ is a natural, full-spectrum CBD oil extracted from hemp plants grown in Northern Europe. The RSHO™ Green Label contains a high concentration of cannabinoids in their acidic form – Cannabidiolic Acid. This product is an integral "juice" or extract of the plant that HempMeds® grows.
"We are proud to announce the import of RSHO™ Green Label to the people of Brazil," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO, Dr. Stuart Titus. "The introduction of this product in Brazil signals a huge step forward for those in need of medicinal relief and those who continue to suffer at the hands of inadequate restorative aid. Our company has, and will, continue to be driven by the idea that the interests of people come before profit models. From athletes, to around-the-clock business owners, to children as well as the elderly, we see the potential for an overwhelmingly positive affect on the lives of millions within the country. I am firmly confident in the potential and future of our product within the country of Brazil."
Due to the minimal processing, RSHO™ Green Label has the lowest price point of any other RSHO™ lines. For more product information be sure to click HERE.
