SAN DIEGO, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Medical Marijuana, Inc.(OTC:MJNA), the first publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that its subsidiary HempMeds® garnered national news coverage on prominent entertainment news website TMZ.
A Jan. 29 article on TMZ’s website entitled: “UFC’s Liz Carmouche – The UFC Is Ready for a Gay Man…This Is a Safe Space,” which was picked up by several other news outlets across the country, announced that the first female UFC fighter, Liz Carmouche, has partnered with the brand and believes in its mission to help increase access to cannabidiol (CBD) throughout the world, especially among professional athletes.
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 — and the first to both make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers and provide high-quality CBD oil to customers around the world. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay.
“It’s exciting to see the widespread national media coverage of the rapidly growing markets for medical marijuana and CBD; we are always pleased to be at the front of the discussion about one of the fastest-growing industries in the world,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Liz is helping us spread awareness of the many health and wellness benefits of CBD and promote the use of it in the professional sports industry.”
