Marijuana Company of America Announces Successful Prelaunch of Hempsmart in the United Kingdom

ESCONDIDO, Calif., Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire - MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (“MCOA” or the “Company”) (OTC: MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Ltd. has successfully completed the first month of signups for its UK prelaunch.

The Company’s UK division has implemented a regional office, customer service team and a distribution center that has been established by personnel with several years of experience in the network marketing sector.

On March 9th the Company will celebrate the opening of hempSMART UK with a launch event in London. This event is expected to be sold out, as a large number of Associates have already purchased tickets. We have several international speakers attending and associates travelling from all over the UK.

Full field marketing and training has already commenced for the launch that is expected in early March. The hempSMART team has already taken the appropriate measures to manufacture adequate inventory to meet the expected demand for products during the launch. MCOA anticipates that the launch event in the UK will be a starting point for the Company’s plan to sell its products in additional countries on the European continent.

Ian Harvey, hempSMART’s Global Sales Director, said, “We have invested in a support infrastructure that will give our associates a fantastic platform to build on, one that supports growth on both a personal and business level. We are delighted to report that we have over 900 people pre-registered and as we get nearer to the full launch in March, recruitment has exploded and it is expected that this number will more than double!”

MCOA CEO, Donald Steinberg, stated, “As legislation continues to evolve and the demand for hemp derived CBD products grows internationally, we will continue to launch our hempSMART associate marketing model and products to additional countries across the world.”
