SAN DIEGO, June 21, 2019 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (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 Dixie Botanicals® has partnered with Surface Products Corp. to sell a fitness-focused hemp-derived CBD sunscreen for active consumers.
This partnership and product launch represents Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s dedication to entering new high visibility key consumer areas. According to a recent report by Market Insights, the global CBD skin care market will reach $384.9 million USD by 2024, an increase of nearly 40% from $146.3 million USD in 2019.

CBD is beneficial in sunscreen because it is absorbed directly through the hair follicles and the skin’s epidermis and pores. It interacts with nearby receptors on the skin’s sensory nerve fibers and subcutaneous tissue to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and promote balance.
“Dixie Botanicals is a brand that is closely aligned with our consumer base and our goal of providing the highest-quality products on the market,” said Surface Products Corp. Founder Guy Trotter. “We’ve been working with many professional athletes for several years now and we believe that adding CBD to our products will provide them with a great added value and potentially wellness benefits. It’s nice to work with a company who is very consumer-driven and understands what it means to do everything you can to put the customer’s needs first.”
