Medifirst Solutions Finalizes Relationship With Dr. Gupta Pharma

Freehold, NJ, Nov. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- MEDIFIRST SOLUTIONS, INC. (MFST) (the “Company” or “Medifirst”), a provider of innovative laser technology with its FDA 510(k) cleared Infrared Time Machine TTML-8102000 Laser Thermal Therapeutic Device and a provider of Specialty Pharmacy Drug Consulting Services, is pleased to introduce Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Executive Officer of Dr. Gupta Pharma LLC and President of the American Pain Association, as the Company’s partner in its new Cannabidiol (“CBD”) division.

Medifirst recently announced that it has launched USA Pharma, Inc., its division for CBD distribution, sales and products and that it completed an agreement with Dr. Gupta Pharma LLC to distribute a line of premium CBD oils. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, not related to Dr. Gupta of CNN, is a Harvard-trained physician who specializes in the treatment of pain, has significant experience using Marijuana and CBD for treating pain. As the President of the American Pain Association, Dr. Gupta believes that CBD, used under the guidance of a physician, can play a significant role in reducing pain and helping to curb the opioid epidemic. Additionally, he believes CBD can play a major role in overall health and wellness but, he concedes, CBD remains underutilized as there is a substantial lack of education and stigma from public and healthcare providers with regards to the benefits of CBD. Unlike Marijuana, CBD does not produce a high and Dr. Gupta believes CBD is very safe to use. Dr. Gupta and the American Pain Association recently completed a 10-city tour to meet with governors and lawmakers regarding how to educate the public about benefits of CBD.  Dr. Gupta is a staunch supporter of CBD and is on the front-lines of bringing CBD to the mainstream medical community.  The American Pain Association is currently initiating several studies on CBD in conjunction with various prestigious Medical school faculties across North America. 

Based on his clinical and research work and using proprietary patented methods, Dr. Gupta has created CBD wellness products that he believes can benefit patients suffering from many different health conditions. Today, Medifirst President Bruce J. Schoengood stated that, “We are thrilled to be working with Dr. Gupta and look forward to distributing and participating in a CBD product line that, we believe, can be of great help as an all-natural product to battle pain as well as the opioid crisis. The Dr. Gupta CBD product line, we believe, will have great interest and demand by physicians and the medical community, in addition to producing unrivaled quality products for consumers.” The Company is expected to provide details about its new CBD division and the distribution agreement entered into with Dr. Gupta Pharma LLC in a Current Report on Form 8-K.
