SAN DIEGO, Sept. 12, 2018 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that it has signed a contract with Canadian extraction and formulation company Salvation Botanicals, Ltd. (“Salvation”) to manufacture products in Canada.
According to a recent report by Deloitte, Canadians are expected to spend up to $7 billion on cannabis products in 2019, exceeding Canadian liquor sales projected to be $5 billion. Deloitte also projects that overall cannabis consumption is set to increase by up to 35 percent.
“We’re thrilled to sign this agreement and bring our expertise into the Canadian market, especially with a respected partner such as Salvation Botanicals,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “The Canadian cannabis market is projected to skyrocket over the next year and we are looking forward to providing the Canadian market with the best products available.”
Medical Marijuana, Inc. produces industry-leading cannabidiol (CBD) brands including Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™), Dixie Botanicals® and Cannabis Beauty Defined®. With this latest entry into the Canadian market, Medical Marijuana, Inc. through Salvation Botanicals will be introducing several new THC-based products in Canada as well, utilizing the entire cannabis plant and its many beneficial cannabinoids, something the company is excited about and a new first for the company.
“We are delighted to celebrate this new international opportunity and be at the forefront of Canada’s new recreational market,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. Director of Canadian Operations Kenneth Smith. “Salvation Botanicals is a highly reputable company in Canada and we believe that together we can become leaders in cannabis education during this time of historic transition.”
Salvation Botanicals was founded on a commitment to the science of standardization and consumer protection through analytical testing and the development of stringent production processes. Salvation has developed high-volume production methods based on their understanding of high-quality, standardized cannabinoid products. The Company operates a fully Licensed Analytics Laboratory to test cannabis and derivative products for LP’s, ACMPR Growers and Canadian Cannabis Patients. Salvation holds a Narcotics Dealer’s license as well as hemp import/export license from Health Canada.
“Recognizing the commitment that Medical Marijuana, Inc. has to our shared goals, we have the opportunity to produce innovative cannabis-based products, including CBD that will positively impact the Canadian market,” said Salvation Botanicals CEO Cliff Wiltshire. “The alignment of Salvation Botanicals and Medical Marijuana Inc. in the cannabis industry will provide a real win for consumers.”
