SAN DIEGO, Sept. 10, 2019 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA) (“the Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® will be attending and exhibiting at Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, Maryland, on Sept. 11-14.
According to a 2019 report by Natural Food Merchandiser magazine, the Natural Products Market produced over $158 million in sales in 2018 and is projected to grow by 49 percent in 2019. In the same report, ninety-two percent of retailers surveyed reported selling cannabidiol (CBD) in some capacity.
At the conference, HempMeds® will exhibit its well-trusted hemp-derived CBD lifestyle brands such as its Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ and Dixie Botanicals® as well as the Company’s Personal Care Line of hair and skincare products, Everyday Wellness Line of functional products and brand new pet products.
“We are excited to exhibit our industry-leading hemp CBD products at one of the largest natural products expos in the world,” said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. “The reception and acceptance of CBD products by the natural products industry has been inspiring and helped develop this rapidly growing new market. Recently, I’ve felt encouraged by the amount of research that continues to be funded to understand how CBD interacts with our bodies and how we can create products that will benefit our customers in the most efficient way.”
Natural Products Expo East, hosted at Baltimore Convention Center, aims to connect retailers, wholesalers and producers from across the natural products industry. The three-day exhibition will not only feature numerous companies within the natural products landscape but also offer programming that includes workshops, demos, speakers, education sessions, and more.
“Our portfolio of companies have attended and created a long-running relationship with the Natural Products Expo conferences on both coasts over the past decade and we’re happy to return once again to connect with business professionals and support the CBD industry as a whole,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Only a few years ago we were one of the very few exhibitors selling CBD at Natural Products Expo East and now CBD retailers and other cannabis companies dominate the expo floor. We are happy to see this as an example of overall improved industry awareness and popularity in the U.S.”
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 and was also the first to make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay, as well as the first to have CBD products listed in the Prescribers’ Digital Reference and one of the first to be certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority. From online store to packaged product, HempMeds® believes integrity and adherence to high standards deliver the best quality hemp oil for its customers. The Company distributes worldwide, providing industry-leading products to wholesalers, affiliates, and retail customers.
