SAN DIEGO, Oct. 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, today announced that its subsidiary Kannaway® has launched a new website and back office available in Japanese catered to servicing the expansion into Japan and Asia.
Kannaway®’s new Japanese language website is designed to fit the specific needs of Japanese consumers and business owners. The site will feature the latest news, announcements and promotional offers from Kannaway® in a streamlined and easy-to-navigate design. Visitors will also be able to explore educational resources to help them make informed decisions on the best products to fit their lifestyle.
“Over the past year, we have had great success with our launch into the European market and look forward to bringing our high-quality cannabidiol (CBD) products to the flourishing Japanese CBD market as well,” Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder said. “Kannaway’s new website will allow us to expand access to consumers in Asia and get new Brand Ambassadors in Japan started ahead of our official launch.”
The Company’s Japanese back office will offer Brand Ambassadors the ability to view their personal profiles in great detail, including statistics, order history and account details, to better serve their customers.
Japan is one of Asia’s largest-value CBD markets, according to cannabis data provider Prohibition Partners – and in Q2 2019, Kannaway® announced its plans to begin operations there. China and Japan currently make up 90% of Asian CBD sales, with Japan estimated to represent about $900 billion by 2024.
“We’re excited that Japan is soon to become the next chapter in our Company’s story,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Our Company has remained an industry leader in international expansion into new markets for botanical hemp-based CBD products, and we feel very well-prepared to begin successful operations there.”
