LA’s Newest Cannabis News Source
Los Angeles Cannabis News launched recently with their first issue. The print issue of LA’s new source for everything cannabis featured products from across the Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio of brands, including Kannaway, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™, and Dixie Botanicals®, highlighting the many benefits of CBD and discussing their non-psychoactive properties.
Finally, Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s local Brazilian distribution branch HempMeds® Brasil was featured in the nation’s largest media outlet, Globo, this week after news broke that the federal court ruled that two cities in the State of Rio Grande do Norte, the municipalities of Natal and Parnamirim, must provide CBD oil products to patients there. The court decision upheld requests made by the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office in an legal action that originated with the parents of three children who sought CBD oil for their kids.
HempMeds® Brasil was the first company to have its CBD oil products authorized for import by ANVISA, the health authority in Brazil, for the use as prescription medications. Since then the company has worked closely with lawmakers, health professionals, and patient advocates in the country to promote access to CBD for those who need it.
