SAN DIEGO, Feb. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The world has benefited from life-changing discoveries and resulting innovations. Consumers today would have an uncomfortable time living without innovations to the toothbrush, the lightbulb, telephone, automobile or internet. One discovery - hemp - has been documented for thousands of years as textiles and for health. Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC Pink:MJNA) is proud to announce its hemp innovations: Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) and Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™).
These all-natural cannabis products contain an abundance of cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid or component of the plant. RSHO™ and RSHO-X™ are fostering global awareness, education and cannabis law changes permitting its access and consumption. As heard on U-T’s Community Spotlight Radio show, RSHO™ is being imported in Brazil with ANVISA permit and RSHO-X™ is approved for individuals in Mexico with COFEPRIS import permit.
“It is not often that we witness entire countries initiating sweeping law change,” states Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “Such is the case with Mexico and Brazil and cannabis law reform. These Federal governments have made it possible for more than a combined 360 million people to access RSHO™ and RSHO-X™ CBD as a personal right, once these markets fully develop.”
Marijuana and hemp are cannabis. What differentiates the plants are the levels of cannabinoids that make up each plant. Marijuana is cultivated for an abundance of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychotropic compound, whereas in hemp THC is naturally, virtually non-existent. In hemp, there is a natural abundance of cannabidiol (CBD) and with MJNA’s proprietary cultivars, these natural products are actively sought out by countries and individuals around the world.
Dr. Titus spoke about the increase of global cannabis awareness, education and accessibility during a news interview by the U-T Community Spotlight Radio show.
