New Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ Liquid Product Line Now Available for Import Into Brazilian Market

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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 three new, all-natural hemp oil products with MCT oil:

  1. Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ [RSHO™] new cannabidiol (CBD) liquid products with MCT oil in Gold.
  2. Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ [RSHO™] new cannabidiol (CBD) liquid products with MCT oil in Blue.

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.

ANVISA – Brazil’s Government Health Agency – Approves Patient’s Request for Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ for a New Indication: Parkinson’s Disease

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is pleased to announce to shareholders and to the public that its flagship product Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) has again made world history as a cannabis product to be approved on a case-by-case basis for Parkinson’s disease by the Brazilian Government Health Agency ANVISA – which is responsible for approving citizen importation of medicines and botanical remedies from outside of Brazil.

Real Scientific Hemp Oil(TM) – RSHO(TM) – Approved for Import by Brazil Government’s ANVISA with Import Authorization.

Following Epilepsy (CDKL5 and Dravet Syndrome), which was tSpt indication to be approved, Parkinson’s disease becomes the second approved indication of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s RSHO™ by Brazil’s ANVISA for importation with medical recommendation. Medical Marijuana, Inc. and its partner company HempMeds Brasil™ are working diligently within the framework of the Brazilian Government for approvals of at least five other indications.

MJNA’s partner HempMeds Brasil™ is providing the RSHO™ exclusively for the Brazilian marketplace while under temporary case-by-case approval for several additional medical indications, subject to clinical trials within the country.

Today, any resident of Brazil who has a government-approved medical indication and who would like to have access to RSHO™ hemp oil products, may do so with a doctor’s prognosis, prescription and government-approved import documentation. ANVISA has issued a statement on the agency’s website and has also made an effort to explain how to apply for an import certificate. HempMeds Brasil™ has been working for over a year on its formal product application and regulatory submission. The company expects this to take at least through 2015 to complete.

“The government of Brazil with their 1988 Constitutional right of free health care (SUS) to all citizens is again leading the way by putting the well-being of their people first,” states Stuart W. Titus, PhD – CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “RSHO™ products have been provisionally approved and are being reviewed for potentially five other medical indications, which are subject to future clinical trials – and the Company will continue to update shareholders on further developments.”

In 2005, the number of Parkinson’s patients worldwide was between 4.1 and 4.6 million. By the year 2030, those numbers are expected to more than double to 8.7 and 9.3 million patients according to this report published by the European Parkinson’s Disease Association. The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation states, in the U.S. alone, Parkinson’s is estimated to cost nearly $25 billion every year in combined direct and indirect costs.

Hemp is widely regarded as a “whole food” and “super food.” MJNA’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. Although CBD hemp oil products from MJNA are readily available in and ship to all U.S. states, territories, and districts, hemp oil products are handled quite differently in Brazil.

Until recently, the Brazilian government treated anything derived from cannabis – even hemp – as illegal and, therefore, a controlled substance. In a series of landmark rulings, the Brazilian government began permitting the importation of hemp CBD oil products – including RSHO – with registration by the Federal government agency ANVISA. The Federal government agency also removed CBD from its prohibited substance use list.
