SAN DIEGO, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that its subsidiary HempMeds® will be exhibiting its line of cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil products at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo, taking place in Boston from Oct. 17-20. Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus will also be speaking on an expert panel at the conference discussing the evidence for medical cannabis.
“As cannabis research continues to flourish in the United States and throughout the world, I am proud to be at the forefront of this conversation and help people understand the many intricate facets of the industry,” Titus said. “We are proud to be a part of this important event and help spread education on cannabis and CBD.”
The Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo is held three times a year in the largest media, financial and business markets: Los Angeles, New York and Boston. CBD will be a major topic at this year’s conference in Boston as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently noted that CBD should not be a controlled substance and a new survey from the Brightfield Group predicted CBD sales will reach $22 billion by 2022, surpassing the rest of the cannabis market combined, if the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 (Farm Bill) is passed.
A panel at the conference, Medical Cannabis: Indications and Evidence, will feature Dr. Titus and Dr. Chanda Macias, exploring the evidence behind the therapeutic uses of cannabis and clinical studies that are currently in progress throughout the world. The panel will be on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 1:00-1:50 p.m. in Room 110.
Dr. Titus will be also be at HempMeds® Booth #208 educating conference attendees about the company’s unique CBD hemp oil products, including the award-winning brands Dixie Botanicals®, Cannabis Beauty Defined® and Real Scientific Hemp Oil™.
