SAN DIEGO, Nov. 13, 2018 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil will be a premier sponsor at the CannX Brazil Conference in São Paulo on Nov. 12-14. HempMeds® Mexico President Raul Elizalde has been invited to be a featured speaker at the conference and will present on the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil and the evolving legal landscape of cannabis in Latin America.
The conference will bring together some of the most important leaders in the cannabis industry from around the world, including leading industry experts from Brazil and Latin America, as well as local healthcare and government authorities. The goal of the conference is to collaborate and find new ways to enhance the research and medical support of cannabis in Latin America and gain support for future cannabis legislation.
“I am honored to be a featured speaker at this incredible educational event,” said HempMeds® Mexico President Raul Elizalde. “Supporting CBD research and education throughout the world is one of our top priorities and this event will allow us to offer essential information on the wellness benefits of CBD and connect with the world’s leading medical professionals and researchers.”
During the event, Elizalde will be presenting on the panel “How Cannabis Therapeutic Use Can Help in the Promotion of Health and Quality of Life,”, which aims to educate health professionals, educators and researchers about CBD and its many uses. The panel will take place on Nov. 14 from 2:00-3:30 pm.
“We’re proud to be one of the most trusted suppliers of reliable CBD in Brazil and hope that attendees of this event will take home valuable information about HempMeds, furthering our national footprint,” said HempMeds® Brasil Vice President Caroline Heinz. “We’re also thankful for the opportunity to speak with the international research community as well as Brazilian medical professionals who will be prescribing our CBD products to their patients.”
HempMeds® Brasil was the first company to receive an import permit for CBD in Brazil and, after a series of historic rulings, Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency ANVISA removed CBD from Brazil’s prohibited substance use list, removed the substance’s import tax and is now actively subsidizing the cost of CBD for those who need financial assistance.
