SAN DIEGO, March 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — 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 portfolio of companies, including HempMeds® and Kannaway®, has officially donated $2 million in cannabidiol (CBD) products to ECHO Connection since 2017.
ECHO Connection is a non-profit organization that aims to educate and support those pursuing cannabinoids for their therapeutic benefits in a trustworthy, safe environment. The organization strives to offer charitable support to ease the burden on families of children with disabilities or special needs. Additionally, ECHO connects families in need with doctors that can help them through an individualized comprehensive approach consisting of education and collaboration.
“While CBD has become an emerging and accelerating market in the overall ‘cannabis arena,’ our company must remember that we were founded with a goal of helping those in need through the health and wellness benefits of CBD,” said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “We are grateful for ECHO Connection’s amazing work. Donating to its cause keeps us humble and close to our roots.”
The Company has been donating its flagship CBD product line, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) to ECHO Connection since 2017 and works closely alongside the organization to help raise awareness for its charitable efforts.
“ECHO Connection would not be able to help all of the families we do without Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s CBD product donations,” said Andrea Barnes, President of ECHO Connection. “Two million dollars in CBD product donations is more than any other non-profit in the U.S. has reported and our staff and families in need feel the Company’s support every day.”
