SAN DIEGO, Aug. 17, 2017 -- Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that it is sponsoring and exhibiting at the Aug. 18-20 ExpoWeed Conference, the largest annual cannabis conference held in Mexico, taking place at the CIEC-WTC of Mexico City.
In addition, on Aug. 20 at 10:30 a.m. General Hemp will be speaking on the subject of investment opportunities in the cannabis industry at the ExpoWeed Conference, in the Hall Maya 3.
Medical Marijuana, Inc will also be exhibiting retail-ready cannabis products at ExpoWeed, including RSHO-X™, its zero-THC Real Scientific Hemp Oil™, the first-ever cannabis product to receive approval from the federal government of Mexico for importation. RSHO-X™ is also the first cannabis-based product to qualify as safe for World Anti-Doping standards and therefore could be safely used by Olympic athletes.
"It's exciting to be a driving force in the progression of Mexico's attitude towards medical cannabis, as evident from last year's first-ever cannabis conference being held in Mexico City and this year's upcoming event from August 18-20, 2017," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "We are honored that our CBD hemp oil was the first-ever product approved by COFEPRIS to be imported, and we will continue to advocate 'access for all' on behalf of Mexico residents. We are proud to inform that the marijuana policies of Mexico will continue moving away from prohibition in the direction of policies based upon confirmed scientific research, as evident by the recent legalization of medical marijuana in the country."
Expoweed Mexico is focused on education and commercial exchange of providers, consumers and anyone with an interest in the growing industry of cannabis. The event began in Chile in 2012, and has now created an annual installment in Mexico, involving international lecturers and workshops to provide cutting edge knowledge of the medicinal, industrial and ancestral employments of cannabis.
