SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - December 21, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that the Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™) product line is now being imported into Brazil through the company's subsidiary, HempMeds Brasil™.
The RSHO-X™ product line was developed as the first tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-free hemp oil product on the market. Originally developed to fit Mexico's strict import regulations, RSHO-X™ was the first cannabis product ever legally imported into Mexico.
Recently, Dr Carlos Aguirre performed an informational study in Mexico where he used RSHO-X™ on various patients and children suffering from Epilepsy. Dr. Aguirre saw an average seizure reduction of 67% within his patient population, all with no adverse side effects. The results from this study will soon be published in Neurology Research International, an open access, peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles and clinical studies in all areas of neurology.
This RSHO-X product would be the first cannabis based product to actually qualify for World Anti-Doping standards, so that professional sport, Olympic athletes can take without fear of failing a drug screening.
"Our company was honored to create and distribute the first cannabis product to be approved for import and use in Brazil through medical prescription -- we are excited to offer this important new hemp oil product line to the customers there," said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. "In line with our mission to bring cannabinoid access to all, RSHO-X™ opens up a growing market of customers looking to avoid THC but still experience the similar benefits awarded those who enjoy our traditional CBD hemp oil products."
"HempMeds Brasil™ has been instrumental in creating access to medical cannabis in Brazil and we will continue to educate the medical community and regulatory agencies to make the process for obtaining cannabis products like RSHO-X™ easier," added Dr. Titus.
RSHO-X™ is the preferred hemp oil supplement for those looking to completely avoid even trace amounts of THC and fits the requirements of anyone liable to drug tests. These RSHO-X™ users could range from:
- First responders such as firefighters and police officers that deal with physical exertion and stress and must fit their employer's restrictions on cannabis use.
- Veterans and active military personal who have restrictions from Veterans Affairs policies, despite several studies conducted on the potential benefits of cannabis for veterans suffering with PTSD.
- Competing athletes who face restrictive cannabis testing policies for the sports' governing bodies. RSHO-X™ in the first cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil product able to pass the restriction on cannabis set forth by the World Anti-Doping Agency, enabling athletes to enjoy the benefits of CBD without fear of negative consequences.
- Parents looking to supplement their child with CBD hemp oil but wish to avoid exposing them to even trace amounts of THC, allowing them to benefit the balancing effects cannabinoids have on the human body.
